Just when you thought it was safe to go back in the water… , Aaron Ansarov’s Portuguese Man-of-War

When I was little and we went to the beach in Florida and one of the flags (on the sign, but never used, not that I saw at least) signified Portuguese Man o’ War, I thought for some time that it did refer to a ship.

Did you know, they’re not actually jellyfish? They’re not even a single animal. They’re a colony. The ocean is so absolutely crazy.

I spend a lot (I mean a lot) of time thinking about who the most attractive man on BSG is. (Yes, I’m currently working my way through the series; yes, I’m years behind the curve on this one; yes, I’m obsessed, obviously.) But let’s be real, the choice is so clear.

The friend who got me watching was outraged that Gaius was not my pick. (But he’s so feminine and you’re a straight man, and also you love him anyway, so.)

"Every girl I’ve watched this with is so into Helo. I don’t get it. He’s so bland."
"No, that’s Lee. Boringly conventionally attractive—though I was into that stubble he had for a couple of episodes. Helo has the amazing jawline, too, but he’s way more masculine."
"Yeah, he’s a beefcake."

So apparently that’s what I’m into now?

Ex Libris

One day! I will get an amazing personalized Ex Libris stamp. Or even an embosser. For now I have some lovely bookplates that I can write my name on, and which my parents gave me years ago and I still haven’t run out of, because I really only buy paperbacks.

Birthday-party email invitation sent. I spent all week drafting it, and I think I got it right. I was told today, anyway, that I’d done well: “I felt so invited.”

Oh my god, mermaid and dragon, what an idea! I am absolutely filing that one away as inspiration.

"Hello Bug Are you being a good Boy  Dad."

I dunno, though, I’m pretty sure it reads “Hello Bug Are you being a good Bug Dad.”

Heard the news?

This has changed my life! Or just made me giggle a lot over the course of the day today.
