First of all, thank you guys so much for yesterday’s tips on how to make the most of San Francisco. I now have way more fun things to do than hours that we’ll be in the city, so we’re pretty set. That’s why I love blogging . . . the internet is just one big Care-Bear Stare of help and information and potential friends. I’m so into it.
Fair warning: the rest of this post is just a collection of randoms intended to entertain while I try to organize myself (aka pretend I know how to blow dry my hair. How do they let you out of college without this skill? It’s arguably way more important than the formatting of a resumé, and yet my C.V. is in way better shape than my sorry locks. Maybe this time the hairdryer won’t be heavier than a toddler and I’ll be brave enough to hold it above my head for half an hour without flinching. Am I doing this wrong?)
First: have you ever wondered how Einstein would fare in a verbal showdown against Stephen Hawking? Darth Vader versus Hitler? No? Well, then you clearly are not my husband, who has lost many a recent hour caught up in the amazing YouTube phenomenon Epic Rap Battles of History. The two (slightly strange) geniuses who run this operation assume the background, costume and verbal tics of some of history’s (and fiction’s) greats and spit rhymes at each other in character. There’s Barack against Mitt, Doctor Suess versus Shakespeare . . . the list goes on. M is (rightfully) obsessed, and has (more than once) greeted me in the morning with the burn Moses lays on Santa: ”Where’s my chisel? I got a new commandizzle for y’all/Thou shalt not let children sit on a grown man’s lap at the mall.” Snoop Dogg plays Moses. Why are you not watching this already?
Second: I haven’t been talking about Paleo all that much lately, but I think there are two key things people need to know about it. 1) It’s about health, not a diorama-esque re-creation of what Ned the Neanderthal ate, and 2) it can be SO delicious. Case in point: Paleo Sliders. This is a thing.
Recipe and more organized authorship to come next week. Have a wonderful weekend!!
