I hope you are all grilling out and enjoying the already fabulous weather today. It will be a very exciting and much needed 89 degrees and sunny here in Chicago!
One quick grumble - do any of you watch Happy Endings? It's an ABC show that came out in April. The first few episodes are pretty weak, but it gets a lot better as it goes on. Buuut, it's supposed to take place in Chicago, and it just really.. doesn't. The backdrops/scenery don't look anything like the city, and they just randomly throw in references to the Bulls, the Bears, or Millennium Park. Finally - last part of the rant - there was an entire episode about a food truck competition, and one of the character owns a food truck. Food trucks aren't legal in Chicago (well, see here)! Annoying. But I might keep watching.
Anyhow, some things to enjoy while at your computer today:
- Spex Club - a website where you can virtually try on frames and order up prescription glasses for only $88 (cheaper for readers). I'm thinking about ordering the Apprentice...
- Very cool cube project.
- "Furever" - a to-be-funded via Kickstarter documentary about pets, well, uh, just watch.
- I want this and this.
- Can't stop reading Ann Helen Peterson's academic celebrity blog. And I agree, see Bridesmaids! It was GREAT, even if the projector at Regal Cinemas stopped 5 times throughout our viewing.
- Just in case you haven't seen it yet (or in case you've forgotten), Carl.
