Have a v. chill weekend | Friday Links


Hi friends, posting this a bit later, but the links are worth it!

Hope you have some decent weekend plans. I’m getting a long overdue massage tomorrow (post-baby body is NO JOKE) and Alan continues his crusade to build out a garden.

The Handmaid’s Tale is a Warning to Conservative Women. This is a must read!

This article about Bog Bodies is super weird and cool.

This video on Climate Change crucially frames the most frustrating argument made by Climate Deniers.

This is cool! We may soon be able to incubate preemies and potentially save lives. Science!

Is FaceApp already over? I’ll admit I had my fun with it. But hey, I’m quoted in this article!

RIP Jonathan Demme. Have you guys seen the video for New Order’s “Perfect Kiss”? For so many years I danced underneath it at Transmission and had no idea it had such a big name behind the camera.

Have a blissful weekend | Friday Links


Hey party people, what’s up this weekend? We’re going to start on a big garden project (Alan will actually be doing most of the work😅😅) and I’m going to my BFF Jen’s bridal shower. It promises to be a lively and pleasant couple of days.

#RIPPrince  — Can’t believe it’s already been a year!

BOY it sure seems like the world is about to end, doesn’t it? I’m a ball of anxiety about 90% of the time these days. Maybe it’s time to ask my therapist about drugs. Anyway I hope everyone has a very calm and peaceful Easter weekend, whatever that involves for you.

See you next week ✌🏻

The Return of Lorde Yassss

Kareem Abdul Jabar on Real Housewives.

10 Years Ago Today: Television History. I really miss this cast.

A timely song for these days

Oh hey, new Star Wars trailer.

ADHD is Different for Women.

15 Things I’d Want to Tell a New Mom . An oldie but always relevant.

The Unforgivable Mistake Sean Spicer Makes Everyday. It’s perfect, isn’t it? That this guy is the mouthpiece of our President?

Keep it Real | Friday Links


This is a new feature for Friday (I had attempted to make a trend of this a long time ago, but fell out of habit). It’s pretty typical for blogs to do Friday links I know but, I read links! I have things to share too.

Anyway, hope you have some fun weekend plans. It’s supposed to be almost 80 here in Minneapolis so I’m sure we’ll be getting outside. 


20 Coffee Table Styling Tips.

Unidentifiable Subcultures. Super fascinating.

Goodbye, My Friends


I tried to write something that accurately represents what I feel about this great TV show, but I can’t get the words out. I’ll just say, it’s been such a treat to get to watch these characters on this quirky and brilliant show. And because of last night’s wonderfully emotionally gratifying finale, it’s cemented itself as one of my Favorite Shows of All Time (2 shows have come before it–Lost and Battlestar Galactica–that have left the same emotional mark at the end as this one has. High company!). In lieu of regular Friday links, here’s what the web’s been saying about this fabulous slice of entertainment.

Behind The Scenes at the Final Days of 30 Rock (this one got me teared up before I even saw the finale!)

How 30 Rock Lasted Seven Seasons and Changed the Game for Female Comedy Creators

20 Fake TV Series from 30 Rock

Goodbye, 30 Rock

And Vulture has been sending 30 Rock out in style. Glad I’m not the only one who’s obsessed with how much I’m going to miss the show.

Finally, here’s a scene from one of my favorite episodes. I love this exchange.

Liz: Jack, what are you doing here?
Jack: Getting drunk. Lemon, would you buy my mulch?


(p.s. “Goodbye My Friend” is also the title of a 30 Rock Episode. Hope this helps.)
