Hutts and Recreation

Parks and Recreation has been absolutely killer this season. It reminds me a lot of Season 2 of The Office, back when every character was really starting to find a place in the story line and the comedy was so perfectly honed, not too broad and not too cynical. I miss those days of The Office, but Parks and Rec has proven to be wonderful replacement. Plus, it brought this into my life:

Here’s a side-by-side comparison.


I got these in an email from my mom earlier today. I wish I had better pumpkin carving skills because my adorable pooch would make for one cute jack-o-lantern!

If Only I Had Six More Arms

Actual title of a Craigslist job posting:

Octopus Wanted for Alternative Healthcare Office (Baltimore)


naturopathic physician with a growing practice in Mt. Washington looking for someone to work as her front desk receptionist on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays for a total of 20 hours a week


An octopus would make for a very efficient front desk receptionist, I’ll give them that.

Today’s Stupid Things

Here is a list of stupid things I’ve done, heard or seen today (and it’s only noon). 


1. I was incredibly overzealous when blowing out a candle in my kitchen this morning, resulting in hot wax flying up into my face and neck. I have little red burns all over me. Stupid. 

2. A guy in a white jeep drove past me this morning on my way to work. He had a huge decal on his windshield that read “Let’s Get Nekkkid”. So stupid. 

3.  First Radio Host: That’s such a poignant song. 

      Second Radio Host: Isn’t it about getting it on with a hot prostitute?

      First Radio Host: Yeah, something like that. 

      Second Radio Host: Do you know what poignant means?

      First Radio Host: That was Blackstreet with “No Diggity” 


Other poignant lyrics:

One, two, three, four

Get your woman on the floor.

Gotta, gotta get up to get down

Gotta, gotta get up to get down

Master Shakespeare, is that you? Oh, it’s Coolio? Okay.
