Monday Morning MonBRO: I Hope the Rest of Your Day is Cool Beans

Hi everyone! Great weekends, right? Despite a head cold from hell, it was still homecoming here and everyone was festooned in maroon. Go Rams. ALSO! It’s a Jewish holiday, Rosh Hashanah, so L’shana Tova to my Jewish brethren. AND ON TOP OF THAT, it’s my Dad’s birthday. He is very cool beans, literally the best man I know, so no pressure every other one on the planet.

Monday Morning MonBRO: Brit Week, Birches

It’s my last week in London until July, so to celebrate, all posts this week are British-theme.

Take At Your Own Risk: A Babe’s Bad Advice

I love me some Liz Lemon and some Leslie Knope but sometimes I just think:

And they all hug at the end, because they’re all actually friends in real life!!! ISN’T THAT JUST SO AWESOME YOU CAN’T STAND IT?!

So, without further ado: The Great SNL joke-off of 2011.

PS: Mmm Seth Meyers for this week’s Marry Me? So possible.

Music Mania: Call Your Girlfriend

Another song that’s on repeat! It’s rare that I’ll watch a music video (that isn’t Beyonce) the whole way through, but this one was amazing. Love Robyn (love her collaborations with French pop-tart Yelle as well) and love this song. Everyone knows someone who has been in the situation, and on the real, it’s both danceable and meaningful. And I say that ‘meaningful’ bit with authority, because I listen to a TON of danceable crap. (ALSO! Click ‘more’ to see the hilarious Taran Killam from SNL’s rendition of this video in the SNL writer’s room at 4:30 am. Gold.)
