I like Fridays, because Jake eats his school’s lunch – pizza. One fewer thing for me to do early in the morning. Sometimes it’s the little things.

Today is a fasting day. I used to never do them on Fridays, but lately it’s been happening more and more, because of lunch dates, special dinners I’m cooking during the week for one reason or another, etc. Oh well, at least I get to eat to my heart’s content all weekend.

I’m getting another mood gel manicure today. I’ve become obsessed with them. They change color with temperature! Regular nail polish now seems so boring.

Unless you live under a rock – and that rock doesn’t have internet – you probably saw my friend Jessica’s amazing pictures of her son Beau and new puppy Theo napping together at some point this week. So beautiful!

I’ve never been into Black Friday. I don’t like crowds, and there is no sale so great that I will battle other people to get the item. But I understood why Black Friday existed. And while it’s gotten a little crazy and dangerous, it’s a thing and I accept that.

However, if you shop on Thanksgiving – if you are the reason that employees can’t spend Thanksgiving with their families – then you’re selfish and evil. If you don’t shop, stores won’t make being open on Thanksgiving a permanent thing. It really is that simple.

Fiona is a little too much in the mornings. Even though I’ve already been awake for almost two hours before she comes downstairs, I need a volume button for her.

50 years ago Walt Disney settled on Florida for his next theme park. St. Louis was also in the running, but a drunk executive screwed things up. (Warning: there’s a video at the top of the story, and it auto-plays. Hate that.)

These days, all I look for in a hotel are clean beds, room service, a safe big enough to hold a laptop, and a pool for the kids. Here are ten of the dumbest hotel amenities I’ve ever heard of.

***

When a North Carolina mom wanted a book banned, the book’s acclaimed author got involved. Wow.

***

This is the shittiest job I’ve ever heard of.

These billionaires have vowed to give away at least half of their fortunes. Bravo.

Not coincidentally, I’m sure, most of the billionaires in this “club” are self-made.

 

***

When a shopper confronted this man for masturbating in the women’s bathroom of a Walmart, he said “I didn’t know it was the women’s restroom.” Ummm…NOT THE POINT!

I’m not a fan of weird jewelry. I can’t stand those earrings that make your earlobes into giant discs. And while I think a small stud in the side of the nose can be cute, every time I see someone with a nose ring that goes through the middle part of the nose, I think of this:

Bull Nose Ring_thumb[2]

Then, just yesterday, I saw something dumber. This woman was wearing a nose ring and earrings that were all connected by a one-inch wide strip of gold jewelry! Are you picturing this? I would get that snagged on something within ten minutes and rip my nose right off of my face. I thought that was just about as weird as jewelry could get.

And then I saw this.

I’ve never been a huge fan of Jean Claude Van Damme (although I did enjoy him on Friends). I thought this was just weird. Impressive, I guess, but weird.

This, though, really is epic:

OK, time to start my day in earnest, by getting rid of my grays. I got seven inches cut off of my hair yesterday (my husband still hasn’t noticed) and I always dye it after I get it cut, since there’s less hair to deal with. My poor hairdresser will never ever get to see me without hideous roots.
