I Am a Tooth
Internet round-up for the week of November 28, 2022
Happy Friday! It’s a gorgeous, sunny morning here on the west coast, and the apartment building is replacing the floor in a neighboring unit with what feels like a jackhammer the size of Delaware! I know what you’re thinking — “wow, isn’t that loud?” and the answer is: yes, yes it is. On the bright side, I now know what it feels like to be an incisor while a molar gets root canal’ed. Really cool experience.
One exciting thing this week: I finally pulled the trigger on getting myself a new laptop! Yes, that’s right — I’m writing this now from the new computer I finally bought myself, and boy oh boy — everything’s just like…working? And it’s fast? No weird lag, and I have at least 40 tabs open? 💃🏼 Not me putting something off for 6 months only to realize I should absolutely have done it sooner. *glances at IL license plate I still haven’t gone to the DMV to replace*
Yesterday we finished up Only Murders in the Building, which we managed to binge in a couple of weeks. It’s so fun! I’ll admit, when I first saw the trailer for the show, I expected it to just be a lot of OTT Steve Martin and Martin Short gags. There’s definitely some silly physical comedy, but it’s surprisingly well written and one of those shows that hooks you immediately. Also somehow, it feels weirdly light even though it’s about solving murders. Highly recommend it!
This is the anniversary post in question. Unexpectedly, people seem to be happy for them? I have seen some chatter that they may both already be separated from their spouses, but hoo boy. Wild. GMA has basically said it’s all good because they’re in a consensual relationship and are at the same level. No Try Guys here.
Anyway, on to the goods!
I’m Being Personally Attacked
It is 9:30 AM and I am doing work! Do not check in on me when I am slumped over on the couch at 3PM watching Holiday Baking Championship!
Vintage Meme Making The Rounds
Is this a meme? It is, at least, an old video. I love this kid.
Midwest is Best
Taking you back to Chicago today for this fun little nugget:
This is…the wildest shit I’ve ever seen. I need to know if anyone has paid for this, and I hope the answer is no.
For the unfamiliar — the cost of the food here cannot be more than like $50, and all three of those buildings are free to enter. So uh…is the Uber ride $480? For that price, I’d literally personally chauffeur you to all these restaurants.
Beware of travel scams, I guess? 🤯
Oh, and one other thing:
Which one of you is buying me Target: Rats - The Board Game for Christmas?
Me: HAhahaha how ridiculous
Also me: I…think I want the giant hat
I have such a nostalgic affinity for Looney Tunes, and this literally made me laugh out loud. Another cool thing that popped up in the thread is the list of rules for those cartoons:
A good reminder.
Randomly Selected Animal Cutie
I cannot get over this!! It makes me want a bird. Should I get a bird?
That’s it from me this week! Hope you have a lovely weekend. I’ll just be over here opening and closing tabs at will, since that’s something I can do now 😄 💻
