Random Thursday: Random Whoas*

Random Thursday (ˈrandəm ˈTHərzdā): the day on which Sarah plunks down all the odd bits and pieces she’s been sent by friends or has otherwise stumbled upon this week in an effort to avoid writing a real post, the assembly of which usually ends up taking twice as much time as sitting down and creating actual content.

Because everyone needs a little whoa.

You knoa?

Andrew Hudson made an origami banana,
the existence of which validates
my entire Weltanschauung
if only because
banana and Weltanschauung
are both fun to say
and difficult to stop spelling.

(hey, indy—is this a poem?)


Gummi Bear Jam

Andromeda Turre’s voice + one of my favorite cartoon theme songs ever=


And there are more.

These guys make the theme to Chip ‘n Dale Rescue Rangers sound like “Harlem Nocturne”.

like that.


Happy Anniversary

My husband and I have been married 21 years today.

I know.

Where did the time go?

Oh. Right.

The kids borrowed most it.

It’s probably in their rooms, somewhere—I assume we’ll be getting it all back when they leave home?


The Purple Store Logo

The Purple Store‘s tagline is “Everything we sell is purple.”

They do not lie.

They sell purple spangled shower caps.

They sell purple pet bowls.

They sell Purple Psychic Rats.

It’s breathtaking.

And very, very, purple.

Have I mentioned, for absolutely no reason, that my birthday is the middle of next month?

Just saying.

No, THIS is Freaking Awesome

Turns out that when you send a link to a Saturday Morning Slow Jam of  the Pokemon theme to my friend Kev, he immediately returns the favor by mentioning that Scott Bradlee (the pianist in the video above) also heads this group called Postmodern Jukebox.

Which proceeds to blow your mind.

Give yourself the gift of suggestive Yiddish and try their version of

Talk Dirty to Me

You’ll love it. My hand to Heifetz


Thanks to everyone who sent best wishes and eCards to pass to my Mom.

They—and you—all all very much appreciated.
