Wowser! New Episode.

You’ve made my otherwise dull day a metric bucketload brighter.

Fun with podcasts

It’s fun to note awkward or amusing lines that are missed or glossed over by everyone else because of residual laughter or topic changes. My favorite from this episode: “You shouldn’t be scuba diving with seals anyway.”

That’s quality.


Another episode with Minnesota references. You guys are closet Minnesotans, aren’t you? I can tell by the underlying shame.

Eleanor Roosevelt on the boudoir

I believe Harry S. Truman said of Eleanor Roosevelt, “She would rather light a candle than hump in the darkness.”

Wait, I’m sorry, that’s not correct. That is Adlai Stevenson’s quote.

Apartment Dreams

Don’t know if it was Coulton or Hodgeman who was talking about their apt. dream, but I grew up in NYC and have had the same dreams about secret doors and discovering rooms that I never knew about. I’m so happy to find out that I am, after all, insane.

Yes, I do believe that I do look nice today.


I DEMAND a new episode of You Look Nice Today, or I will invade Poland.

Your move, YLNT. Your move.
