She’s at it again

Heather’s 10 Seconds is one of my new favorite things. I especially love: Disco, 49 Palms Oasis, and Petaluma River.

You may also enjoy “A Work in Progress.” Here’s the photo Heather snapped of me for the project.

it’s on Tonight

You know that new song “Hips Don’t Lie” by Shakira and the guy from Black Eyed Peas the Fugees? OK, pretend you do.

Anyway, there’s this awesome part where the guy tries to speak Spanish. He says: “Como se llama, bonita, mi casa, su casa.” And Shakira writhes in front of him, responding, “Oh baby, when you talk like that, you make a woman go mad.”

So fellas, next time you’re dancing up on some chick at a club, try leaning in close and whispering, “What’s your name, pretty lady? My house? Your house?” Apparently it drives us wild.

The People, They Recieve Email

One million years ago, NBC Nightly News spent a day following Bryan around while he talked about how much email he gets. In case you missed it, the answer is: a lot of email.

The crew arrived at our house just before 7 a.m., followed Bryan to work, returned home with us, and stayed until about 7:30 p.m. From that twelve and one half hours of footage, they pulled approximately 15 seconds of airtime which aired June 20. And what a glowingly handsome, stately 15 seconds it was.

The newscast offered handy tips for conquering your swollen inbox. Tips such as “Send less email” and “Use the telephone.” I could feel my productivity doubling just watching it.

Bryan left me at a cafe while he went to make photocopies. I didn’t have a book with me, so I took photos of all the bikers who passed.

Insight fron an 8 Year Old

My niece and nephew come to visit for a weekend, and we spend a day on the town.

Me: Hey, do you want to go into that comic book store across the street?
Trevor: Comic book stores are kind of scary.
Me: Really? Why?
Trevor: Because the people in there are weird.
Emma: Really weird.
Me: What do you mean?
Trevor: Like, did you ever see Napoleon Dynomite?
Me: Yeah.
Trevor: They’re all like that, except in real life.
Me: Really?
Trevor: Yeah. And they’re saying things like, ‘My rhombut defeats your algorph.’ It’s really weird.
