Whatever Wednesday: Ghetto Hikes

If you don’t know us, you might not have any idea that Katie and I grew up in the hood. Oh, but we did. We went to a very “So-and-so got shot trying to steal a car radio so the student counsel is collecting money to help with his medical expenses*” kind of school.

Because of that, I can’t help but think fondly of my formative years when I read these quotes by urban youths on nature hikes. Even if you can’t sympathize, I think you’ll find them pretty entertaining.  But watch out, the text is huge and there are lots of swears. I wouldn’t read it around your coworkers, unless you work at some really hip upstart where people swear a lot.

*Yeah, that actually happened.

Whatever Wednesday: Flula!

So what if it’s Thursday? That’s where the “whatever” part of Whatever Wednesday comes into play. I haven’t been to bed yet, so it’s Wednesday to me.

Let’s move past that.

The German Youtubers are really bringing their A games, you guys. First they gave us Money Boy and now this guy. Ladies and gentlemen, I present to you Flula Borg!

Things I want to buy that I will love: Mindy Kaling’s new book

I probably smell like too much cologne!

So, I am in love with Mindy Kaling. I want to be just like her when I’m not busy wanting to be just like Tina Fey. She is pretty and feminine and smart and hilarious and she has nice clothes and an excellent blog (from which I adapted the title of this post). She also looks like she smells great, kind of like a Bizarro Little Richard.

Her new book, Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me? and Other Concerns, came out yesterday and I am super excited about it. The title alone had me sold. Though I have not yet gotten my copy, I’ve read a few snippets and can already assure you that the rest of the book will be excellent.

If you are not already familiar with her, here are some videos with which to familiarize yourself. Both are really just audio. The first is a bit of her stand-up and the second is an excerpt from the book.
