Here's Sunday's Daily Delight. I've already heard great reviews!

Google Chat has a new sketch feature. I hovered my mouse over the text box and saw a pencil, and then I sketched, and this happened:


It's supposed to be the sun peeking out over the mountains. But it looks like an alien spider under attack by minions of the letter M. I'm not exactly competition for [livejournal.com profile] akatnamedeaster, am I?

I'm in a dark place this morning. I feel like there is no hope for the future of humanity. My big mistake is, I started the morning with an episode of the MTV reality show, Are You The One?. If you're one of the lucky ones and have never seen it, it's about ten "guys" and ten "gals" who are perpetually unlucky in love due to being fatuous, overbearing, shallow, spoiled, alcoholic morons, from what I can tell. Anyway, MTV corrals these morons together in one house in Hawaii, informs them one member of the other gender is their Perfect Match, and gives them twelve weeks (episodes) to sort it out for a cash prize.

Oh, come on in )

Five things

My dear [livejournal.com profile] candamira passed this meme onto me, so I will do my best to answer...

Five things that make me happy right now:

1) Coffee. Always and forever. The food police continually try to find reasons why coffee is destroying our collective health. But they never shall! They will always be defeated!

Four more ... )

The votes are in, and the majority has spoken: I will see both movies, because hey, twice the singing. Though I do need to use this ticket before the thing leaves the theatres, so I'll see them in reverse order. It doesn't look like like a complicated plot line. I think I'll survive.

Though with this latest development, I may be otherwise engaged for a long time:



That's right, girls! Everyone's favorite Tiger-Beat, Pepsodent-smile, blow-dried, teen-mystery series from the 70s is now on Netflix!

All Memorial Day barbeques, baseball games and parades are hereby CANCELLED. Return to your homes!

::sigh::

Just look at him. All my girlfriends were Team Shaun, but he was a skinny little stick. I only ever had eyes for Parker.

For Mother's Day, my little family went out for Vietnamese at one of my daughter's favorite restaurants. When you're related to me, there'll be no elbowing through the crush of noisy families at Olive Garden, thank you. Too many restaurants on God's green earth for that particular torture. The place was called "Pho Hoc." The wait staff all wore t-shirts that took full advantage of puns on Pho. One kid's said "Pho King," another's said "What the Pho?" Now we know why my daughter got such a kick out of the place.

I ordered something called double mushroom tofu, which was really good, and a green tea milk drink, which is obviously an acquired taste. Groom, the only meat-eater amongst us, enjoyed pork, as well as an avocado milkshake, which sounded like unfortunate typo but actually worked.

Called my own mother and had a nice chat, and I promised to go see her next weekend. This year I have this whole mental list of the big and little projects to be done around her place. Next weekend is the car--we recently learned she hasn't had taken it out of the garage for over six months. (Well, we said "How long has it been? Six months??" and she shrugged noncommitally, so it might well have been longer.) It seems her IHSS helper squires her about. Lovely. The car will need a battery jump, fluid and brake inspection, tire massages, and I don't know what all. We'll see. This is how we adult kids say thank you to our mothers, you know: we educate them about ethnic food and run checkups on their cars.

Finally watched Season 3 of Sherlock tonight. So many in-jokes and gifs are now explained! Now I know the reason for this t-shirt.

Hey, we secured a vacation cabin today! And the crowd goes wild!
