Here's What You Missed This Week 8/18/13 - 8/24/13

I was pretty busy this week with my vacation planning. Here's what that looks like in my house:
  • My husband and I casually mention to each other that we should go away somewhere, about eight times, over the course of approximately three months.
  • One of us puts our foot down and decides where we're going.
  • We decide we're leaving in, like, five days.
  • Insanity commences.
We're going to be staying with family, so at least we don't have to worry about hotels and food and such. But there's still all the packing and the sight seeing to-do lists and whatnot. And finding someone to watch my cats on short notice. And begging for guest posts so you people won't be bored for a week (I'm always thinking of others).


And here we are. I'm up super late throwing together my weekly list of internet must-sees for my favorite imaginary friends. I hope you like it.

What I Wrote

I feel like maybe you could have figured this out, but just in case, I'll tell you now: I am passive-aggressive. If someone disobeys the rules of polite society, I will casually fuck with them to punish them. I'm not sure if that's normal behavior. I recently had a wacky mishap that I'd love for you to read about over In the Powder Room. The politeness police

Last week, I made a comment on my Facebook page about how I wished I could write a Yelp review for my neighborhood. Two lovely readers pointed out that indeed I could, because duh, I have my very own website, and you people might like to read it. So I did. And you will. Yelping the Unyelpable

So, you know how I'm going on vacation? I'm going to New York. I've never been. Real quick, what are the must-sees in New York? Broadway? Times Square? That arch thing where that guy played the violin in that movie? Fuck all of those. I am not your average tourist. If I Can Make it There (and not get raped and murdered)...

What I Read

You know how there are, like, a finite number of types of people in the world? It turns out there are only five types of friends. I only have four, but that's cool (four types, not four friends). Amy of Funny is Family breaks it down for you like DJ Jazzy Jeff breaks down a beat.

If you are not as lucky as I am, to be vacationing with a small child (or three) this summer, you can live vicariously through Lori of The Next Step. And then you will totally not be jealous anymore.

You know that one kid with the messy hair? Oh yes, you do. We all do. Jane of Nothing By the Book teaches you what a kid's hair says about their parents' child-rearing philosophy, and it will really make you think twice.

How often would you say a guest post makes it into a best-of list? Probably not too often. But my girl Julie of I like beer and babies never steers me wrong. Her latest guest, Christie of He Took MY Last Name, was so rad that I immediately clicked over and subscribed to her blog. Do yourself a favor and go to there.

Tweets I Enjoyed 

Now, if you'll excuse me, I have an assload of laundry to do...
