Friday Things

First off, yeaaaaaaah HAWKS!  That last game was ridiculous, two goals in 17 seconds! With only 16 seconds left in the game!  I usually don't use the term EPIC, but there really is not an alternative for what went down in Boston on Monday.

more than 2 MILLION folks in Grant Park today

Honestly, if I still lived in the city, I'd be avoiding the parades and this stuff like the plague.  But, as my brother pointed out on this picture he posted to Facebook, it's about 1/4 the size of what the crowd would be if our beloved Cubs won the pennant.  True that - I'd do whatever I could to come home for festivities if the Cubbies won the World Series.

OK, other awesome thing this week?  Well, to summarize, I think this was my favorite internet find to come out of the DOMA ruling: 
From The Oatmeal, obviously.
One more thing that had me smiling this week: If Kids Tweeted About Shows Like Adults Do, from Buzzfeed.  We're currently in a Justified phase and just counting the minutes until Breaking Bad returns in August (and Sons of Anarchy in September).  

Red Tricycle recently posted a list of top 11 aquariums in the world and now I'm obsessed with watching this video from the Okinawa Churaumi Aquarium:

I could watch this all day!  The whale sharks!  The manta rays!  They also have whale sharks/manta rays at the Georgia Aquarium in Atlanta and I'm seriously considering a visit there, because my son would LOSE HIS SH*T.  I think I've mentioned before that he's crazy into marine life and there's definitely a whale shark in his collection.

This is just a part of the collection 
Watching that aquarium is also making me want to go swimming, especially since it's SO HOT out right now - like mid 80s!  Hah.  We've become total wusses since moving to Seattle and running today felt like a major slog.  But I wouldn't trade the weather here for any other city - I've talked about that before, too.

90s by Tuesday??? Ermagherd I'm MELTING!

OK, I'm going cheesy pop for the playlist this week: Glowing by Nikki Williams has really grown on me.

Happy weekend!

  1. I, too, have gotten soft when it comes to the heat. Anything over 80 kind of makes me cry inside. I guess I've just gotten used to not sweating my way through the summer...

  2. WOW to that aquarium video...just WOW!! I need to go there, or at least the Georgia one, I would die to see a Whale Shark!
