- The first comment on this article about Greek yogurt fills me with a sense of smug pride because when I eat yogurt, it’s only the Fage with honey. I don’t think I’ve ever written a more pretentious statement. Just call me Gweneth.
- A co-worker “sings” while plugging away at work. I’m all for doing what you need to do to make the day pass a bit faster, but the warbling is really hard to tune out, even with headphones on. I took some recordings of it (that I’m too lazy to post) because in addition to listening to all of her personal phone calls and everyone’s fucking ringtones, it’s just too much.
- Speaking of co-workers, there is another one that does something that just fills me with a low-level rage. Now I’ll be the first to admit, I’m soft spoken. However, when I’m talking to other people, I do my best to speak clearly so they can hear me. Sometimes I have to repeat myself, whatever. This coworker takes soft-spoken to such an annoying level I just want to shake some volume into her. When this co-worker talks to me, it is not uncommon for me to ask her to repeat herself two, three, sometimes four times. I have even gotten so frustrated that I’ve raised my feeble voice to say “HEY CAN YOU PLEASE SPEAK UP BECAUSE I CAN’T HEAR YOU.” I feel like the writers of Pitch Perfect personally know her and based that one character off of her.
- This is the best thing I have seen all week, nay month. Sam (!!) had a burlesque opening number to his bar mitzvah and then later dressed up as a GLITTERY EVERYTHING BAGEL (!!!!) to do a remix of Kanye’s “Love Lockdown” called “Love Loxdown.” Is he the best or is he The Best?! It reminds me of that bat mitvah video where Paul Rudd was the DJ or that other bar mitzvah where the kid danced to Madonna. Is is bad to want a super group of bar mitzvah all stars called Boyz II Menorah? Please someone make it happen.
- Love this new remix of Phoenix’s “Trying to Be Cool” from R. Kelly. If only we could see them perform it together… I saw R. Kelly at Bonnaroo this year and IT WAS EVERYTHING I’D HOPED IT WOULD BE AND MORE. He started on top of a crane and belted out the beginning of “Ignition Remix” before the crowd took over. He came down off of the crane and treated us to his voice, great cover songs, and some of his soulful stylin’ hits before ending in the most spectacular fashion– singing “I Believe I Can Fly” while hundreds of white dove balloons floated up into the night sky.
