Hello my friends!  We’re in it, aren’t we?  Are these the dog days of summer?

I hope you’re taking it easy this weekend.  I hope you’re lying low, drinking lemonade, and dangling your feet in a cool swimming pool.

Here’s what’s on my mind and on the Internet this week:

 Turn On, Retweet, Tune Out – on our fleeting #empathy.

•  Jonathan the 182 year old tortoise.  Slow and steady forever and ever.

•  So there’s this company called Personal Audio that claims to have the legit patent on aaaallll podcasts.  They’ve demanded cash-money from podcasts large and small according to their patent.  Essentially they’re going after popular podcasts in an effort to make some quick money and essentially it’s a really crappy thing to do.  They got more than they bargained for when they went after Adam Carolla.  Adam Carolla Won’t Let Company Drop Podcast Patent Infringement Case Against Him.

•  I love these dreamy pictures of Old California.  

•  Watch this full screen because The World’s Most Extraordinary Waves deserve at least that much respect.  The thought of these kinds of waves coming at me gives me a half-panie (aka half panic attack).

•  A very accurate list of Ten Things Not To Do As A New Yorker Visiting LA.  

 Raspberry Peach Sorbet Kombucha Floats!  I’m all the way into it.

•  An important documentary about a teenager sentenced to life in prison without parole.  15 to Life: Kenneth’s Story.

•  It’s going to take me years to fully appreciate the nuance of New Orleans cuisine.  The book Eat Dat New Orleans is a very helpful guide.

•  “I don’t need feminism because women *already* make up an equal number of CEOs, if you include Chicks Eating Oreos.”  No To Feminism.  Thank you Twitter.

•  Tracy shared this gem with me and it’s just toooooo real:  17 Things Women Without Children Are Tired Of Hearing.  “It must be nice to have so much free time.”  Oh my gosh shhuuutttt uuupppp.

Happy Sunday!  I love you bye-bye!

  1. I may not have a ton of free time, but I definitely had enough this weekend to make a salted caramel cheesecake (you enabler of cheesecake decadence, you). My child even helped, from a morale standpoint. I can’t wait until he’s old enough and then I’m going to train him to make dougnuts.

  2. I don’t know if it’s considered a compliment…..but whenever my sons tell me they love me more than anything else in the world!
