great story about the puppy channel and founder dan fitzsimmons over at this american life (courtesy of ben):

“The initial idea was all puppies, all the time. You’d turn to the puppy channel and you’d see — 24 hours a day, 7 days a week — footage of puppies fooling around, like puppies do, acting the natural comedians and cuties that they are.”

the most cranky

Posted: January 28th, 2014 | No Comments »

yesterday i was the most cranky, the crankiest person, work is just the biggest hammer. it wouldn’t be the biggest hammer for someone who isn’t me, but for me, it’s the biggest hammer. i’m just done. ready for new challenges. i tried walking clyde to conquer the crankiness, and it helped — seeing stars, talking to carolyn, being cold. and then i bought wine and way-too-expensive bailey’s irish cream as treats and went home and ross was drawing and watching ice-t’s hip hop documentary so i wrote on my blog, which helped, but then i got cranky again because at 11pm ross went out for a drink to celebrate his brother’s birthday, and was like, come!, but i knew i would only sink further into a crank pit by going to the lost horse at 11 pm and making small talk. but also saying no made me feel cranky. so i tried to watch puppy videos (first time!) to wipe it all away and it did actually help, sort of, mostly just this one where a little puppy keeps falling asleep in his water bowl.

leon HIGHLIGHTS

  • drinking white wine and eating salt & pepper chips with courtney and bill while getting ready for kathryn’s party
  • dressing in the weirdest leon redbone / bone thuggz  disguise and being a total weirdo in a hipster LA bar and having everyone immediately be like “who is that weirdo” and also accidentally upping the weirdness by ordering white wine
  • courtney telling kathryn that said costumed weirdo was “noel” from scottsdale, a friend of bill’s dad visiting her and bill, and kathryn believing her
  • max’s basketball game
  • kids dancing on the court instead of playing basketball
  • learning that little boys like to wrestle
  • hanging with owen
  • owen calling me mickey mouse (“i want mickey mouse to do it”) (“i went to the park with mickey mouse”)
  • kathryn saying owen never takes people to like that (the best compliment)
  • drinking a chocolate milkshake and reading vogue
  • champagne and dill chips with b, si, steve
  • butterscotch budino for dinner!
  • coffee with kathryn every morning
  • getting EIGHT HOURS of FREE parking with courts
  • deceptively gross smoothies with courtney
  • my new bolo! it’s bolo time
  • tea and clotted cream and scones and blueberries at the botanical gardens with kathryn and her pals
  • trying out my yellow night glasses driving back to marfa (underneath normal glasses). a weird look for sure but A+ for night driving
