today is a google holiday, hooray!

I am thankful for Google Holidays.

Today’s Google Holiday: Ina Garten’s Thanksgiving Recipes from Google. Holy cranberry sauce, you guys. This is two of my favorite things combined! I’d recommend not looking at the recipes if it’s midnight and you have no food in your apartment.

What I was Googling: L’Occitane. Hostess gift…Mouser, don’t tell Merrimom.

Hope you all get a short day tomorrow and are preparing to put your waistband expanders to good use!

hump cay cry face: the fam.

Ladies and gentlemen, a family Cry Face (from a photo booth at a recent wedding):

We may not agree on how we feel about what happened yesterday, but Cry Face will always bring us together.

just six words and a picture.

A note left by Rep. Patrick Kennedy on his father’s grave (Ted Kennedy). Warning: if you have a bleeding liberal heart, this may make you weep. This picture comes from the White House’s Flickr stream.

“Dad, the unfinished business is done.”

sandra bullock and jesse james, NOOOOO!

Sandra Bullock is perfect.  She is a fantastic actress, self-deprecating, hilarious and gorgeous.   Although she seemed to be completely out of her husband’s league, they were so adorable together and seemed so in love, it didn’t matter.

And still, he cheats.

WHY DO GUYS WHO LOOK LIKE THIS:

CHEAT ON WOMEN WHO LOOK LIKE THIS:

WITH WOMEN WHO LOOK LIKE THIS:

Devastating.

happy thanksgiving, all you little turkeys!

Thanksgiving is upon us yet again, and I’m currently at work hoping that we will soon get an email saying “LEAVE. NOW. EVERYONE. GOBBLE GOBBLE.” So far, no luck.

I was taking a look at my Thanksgiving post from last year, and I must say: not a whole lot has changed. I’m still thankful for all of that good stuff (like goat cheese and Michael Franti and not being pregnant). Yesterday in my Pilates class, while we were doing a move called “the teaser,” the instructor asked us to think only of things we were thankful for. No bad thoughts like “hot DAMN this is hard!” I thought that was kind of sweet.

This year I’ll be spending Thanksgiving here in DC with Kelsey and a couple other lovely people, and we are forgoing the traditional feast-and-family route in favor of Korean spas and fancy dinners. I’ll let you know how that goes.

While we’re at it, I’ve gotta confess: World, I am thankful for Jason Segel. Even though I’m very NOT thankful that he pulled this stunt at the Swell Season concert in LA rather than the one in DC. Asshole.

Eat lots of delicious things tomorrow, and be happy about all you’ve got going for you. Gobble gobble!

i want to be an obama!

Today the White House released the official portrait of the First Family taken by Annie Leibovitz.  My first thoughts were “My GOD what a beautiful family” and “Where should I photoshop myself in?”  Creepy?  Yes.  True?  …Yes.

Official Obama Family portrait

And First Dog Bo wasn’t left out of the action.  In fact, Bo had his own set of White House portraits done, although Annie Leibovitz didn’t stick around to take those photos.  Malia and Sasha didn’t even get that honor.

No, this isn't the official White House portrait.  I just like it a lot.
