Good Shit I Recently Liked:

Almost Done with Christmas and Christmas Day (Rae Hartsock @ Say It Ain’t So) — Those decorations! The pups! My dream home!

Ranked: Every Saturday Night Live Cast Member Ever, From Worst to Best (Phil Nugent @ Nerve) — MOST of these are WILDLY WRONG, but I still enjoyed reading it a lot and it brought on a lively debate on my Facebook.

Hard to Find Week Pre-Party: Cover Girl Crackle Laquer (The Polish Addict) — This one is hard to explain kind of. This blog is defunct and the post is from 2008, but I was looking for a swatch of some nail polish and I somehow ended up on a road ending at this post. A post where crackle finish polish was hard to find because it hadn’t been rebirthed. And where it apparently used to crackle way damn cooler than it does now. I JUST THOUGHT IT WAS A WEIRD TIME CAPSULE MOMENT OKAY, GOD.

It’s Okay to Be Neither (Melissa Bollow Tempel, via Together For Jackson County Kids) — Fantastic. Enough said.

Anne’s Things (Ranch Dressing with Eartha Kitsch) — This was so moving/beautiful! The relics of our lives are so small and powerful.

20 Dated Celebrity Endorsements from Over a Decade Ago (BuzzFeed — These are just the BEST. The late 90s and early 00s were so ugly and metallic and just awful. So great.

Louis CK’s Shameful Dirty Comedy (Frank Chimero) — This is ridiculous on point. And it’s exactly why I love Louis CK so so much.

Since I am still trying to play catch-up with the 31 Days of Festive-Ass Flicks (I won’t apologize, but, uh, OOPS.) I thought I would throw together a list of Good Shit I Recently Liked:

What I Learned in First Grade (Elisha Lynn at My Black Tongue)
I Am So Not Sorry About My Vagina, And Other Apologies We Should Retract (Sara Benincasa @ Jezebel)
The Spielberg Face (Kevin Lee of Fandor)
Hear 10 Seconds from Every Hit Song of the ’80s (WFMU’s Beware of the Blog)
Pinochle (KT Kieltyka for The Hairpin)
The Last Photo of Walt Disney at Disneyland Park (George Savvas at Disney Parks Blog)
Make Everything OK
On Orange Juice (Anthony Geffen at Well, That’s Just Great)
Tradition (xkcd)
Ghost of Christmas Past (Ranch Dressing with Eartha Kitsch)
Adventure Time! (Rae Hartsock at Say It Ain’t So)

Now I’m going to go to sleep for awhile because I haven’t slept more than three hours at a stretch for the last… week and a half. AND I AM TIRED. And I finally caught up on all the movie watching. The writing can come LATER.

But really, thanks for hanging in there, doods. I believe in me. I believe in you. I believe in us.
