Friday Shenanigans

I just got back from the dentist, and the funniest thing about the whole experience to me is when you’re making a follow up appointment after you’ve seen the doctor.  The exchange invariably goes something like this:

Receptionist:  Are you free at 9:40 on a Friday in 7 months?

Me: Uh…probably

Free colonoscopy – In a blatant attempt to piggyback off the rousing success of this blog (a way more likely scenario than promoting public health), CBS has launched a new sweepstakes that offers a free colonoscopy to the winner.   I wholeheartedly support adequate gastroenterological care for all, but am disappointed that the Tiffany Network would hold this contest without offering me royalties, or at least a free colonoscopy myself.

If you’ve got some time to kill – Here’s a comprehensive list of the 99 biggest clips/sites on the “internet” in recent history.  You’ve probably seen a lot of these, and there are a couple of stinkers, but it’s always a good idea to brush up on your “falling while grape stomping” or “really really stupid Miss South Carolina response“.  

To end this edition of shenanigans, below is a gem of a letter a good friend recently dug up.  It’s a letter she sent home when she was at sleep away camp as a kid.


It's not just the sentimentality that gets me in this letter, it's also how grateful she is.

It's not just the sentimentality that gets me in this letter, it's also how grateful she is.

She still gets angry if you don’t bring her chips or cookies.

Listening to: Yeasayer – Tightrope

Last ate: Two brownies
