weekend pickthrough- blackout edition

27 02 2010

so the last 24 hours have been a complete clusterfuck. thanks to an evening of 60+ MPH winds, i was completely without power from midnight last night, to about 4 pm today (yes, that picture was taken from my porch this morning as two city workers removed a large tree branch from the cable lines leading into my condo). on the upside, i didn’t have to go to work. on the downside, i spent the majority of the day inside my impenetrable blanket cocoon curled up on the couch trying to stay warm. on the double downside, my phone wasn’t charged- and there wasn’t an operational wireless connection within a one mile radius. eventually i did wander down to starbucks to thaw out and plug in my phone, but it was a sad sad day. it’s official, i am technologically dependent.

anyway, i’m sorry for the delay. i’ve been kind of crap at posting this week, and hope to have the slack picked up in the near future.

i haven’t run more than a mile in over a year. also, i got fat. despite this, in a moment of demon possession, i signed myself up for the maine cancer foundation twilight 5k. oops.

johnny weir is officially too gay for figure skating.

part of me wants to tell american apparel to fuck off, part of me wants to order like 10 of these right now.

is that 3 week old spaghetti sauce still safe to eat? still tasty has the answers. (via saving your green– another sexy maine bloggess on the scene)

why free gift cards are rarely ever free, portland penny pincher style.

vintage denture mayhem from the strange maine blog!

it’s ok christopher, i blew out of the spelling bee too.

at least my sandwich party is guaranteed to be less lame than this house party. (i’m imagining some very inappropriate party games here)

yes i am a mother fucking pterodactyl. (congrats on your book deal oatmeal!)





weekend pickthrough- who’s johnny edition.

you may not have won the gold (or silver, or bronze), but you’ll always have my heart glitterpuss! i mean johnny weir! and thanks to a randomly high google image search ranking, the picture i posted of you a few weeks ago has since driven over 3,000 people to my blog (your powers are great).  on a semi-related side note, let’s take a moment or two to reminisce about johnny 5 with “who’s johnny” by debarge from the short circuit 2 soundtrack. yum!

i’m afraid of the christmas tree shop in exactly the same way i’m afraid of mimes and people in mascot suits. the lovely and fearless portland penny pincher takes one for the team and stakes it out national geo style. (spoiler- they accept coupons!)

will i ever grow out of having to give blow jobs? 3 portland foxes tell it like it is.

you give them $10, and they send you… um… something.

a giveaway blog that features things that i might actually want! (sorry christian cookbooks and diaper coupons… i just can’t.)

i got fleeced on foursquare by an imaginary monkey. also people, i can’t be the mayor of everything- get your asses playing!

here’s some double dipping that won’t end in tragedy! check out the oscar nominated short films of both the animated and non animated variety@ space gallery saturday & sunday.

in case your town isn’t lucky enough to have its own valentine’s  bandit, sam cousins documents it all (in the loveliest way possible).
