Things to Love
Carly Rae Jepsen, Jimmy Fallon, and the Roots performing “Call Me Maybe” with classroom instruments. For that matter, Obama “singing” “Call Me Maybe”. And while you’re at it, might as well admit a “Call Me Maybe” obsession. Honestly, how fun is this song to sing along to?
My new flamingo shoes. Sometimes happiness is simple.
The Game of Thrones/Maroon 5 “Payphone” parody my friend Diana sent me. So many good things mashed together. Yay, the internet!
P.F. Chang’s, particularly the Great Wall of Chocolate. Probably a better human achievement than the Great Wall of China.
Things to Shun
These two women I greeted today at work. I smiled and said, “Hi, how are you?” These biddies stopped their conversation, looked me full in the eye, and then perceptibly decided not to respond to me, turned and walked away. I’ll just go fuck myself. (Sidenote: I say this all the time. It is always in reference to that scene.)
WordPress changing video embedding to an upgrade-only feature. Sorry for all the Youtube links, beloved followers, but you’ll just have to take this leap of faith with me.
50 Shades of Grey. It’s good for what it is, which is housewife-porn. But the poorly-written tedium of, say, two college students moving (they packed their rooms; they closed up the boxes; they moved into the new apartment; they unpacked: WHO CARES?!) and the gratuitous cheesy language (please quit gasping, people! I have to wonder if E.L. James really understands what gasping is when her characters are doing it this much) make it a chore to get through. Save your time; it’s not worth the water-cooler conversation. If you really want to get it, just watch this.
