Friday Things, Gone Fishin'

Well, metaphorically 'gone fishing.'  I'm doing another hiatus on the blog next week; although, this one has been planned for awhile.  We're doing a combination of staycation/small road trip vacation instead of hanging at Children's Hospital for a week!  I've got lots of great stuff from the internet for today to make up for it, and I can tell you at least one thing that will be on our weekly menu next week:


We're finally trying the Italian Beef kit!  The cooking instructions are a bit more intimidating than the hot dogs, which is why we've shied away.  But, we could put off our cravings no longer.

Lately, Friday Things might as well be called Oiselle things, but there's been so much great stuff goin' on!  Here's the latest blog post announcing all the new VolĂ©e Team members.  Check it!

OK, in case you missed these internet gems:

Fascinating and fun facts about one of the best tv shows ever: Friends, of course, from Buzzfeed

Speaking of tv, it's no secret that I'm a big Sons of Anarchy fan, and the fact they made a parody on Sesame Street cracks me up.

(Also, the Cookie Monster take on Icona Pop is pretty hilarious.) Since gun running biker gangs are fair game, perhaps the crazy life of a science teacher turned drug lord is next?  I'm hopeful that they'll give a nod to one of my other all time favorite TV shows, Breaking Bad.  Walter White and my boyfriend Jesse Pinkman are back THIS SUNDAY.  Thank the lord.

I get a lot of "oh, is your son so excited for Shark Week??" because of his shark obsession and, puhleez people, I'm not showing him most of it!  I've DVRed a few shows, but in my opinion, most of it is a bit much for a six year old.  This shark cat was fun for the whole family.

Stephen Colbert is also a favorite in this household, and his rendition of Get Lucky by Daft Punk is destined to be a classic Colbert Nation moment.  And Robin Thicke did his thing on the show after Daft Punk did not.  I'm not a huge fan of Blurred Lines, he totally loses me with "what rhymes with hug me?"  WHAT?  Seriously, what innuendo rhymes with hug me??  The 'F' word?? No. That does not rhyme.  BUT, Jimmy Fallon can do no wrong, and you've probably seen this - but, just in case...

My favorite is when he does this bit with Carly Rae Jepsen.

For this week, I'm adding Hey Now by Martin Solveig to the playlist - a repeat artist from last year's list.

Happy weekend and happy WEEK!

  1. Haha, my friend and I had a lengthly conversation about "What rhymes with hug me" that would be so funny and inappropriate. We decided it must be "tug me" ;)

    1. Well, certainly, no one would be saying "mug me". :)
