Over on my mother’s blog, she posted a PSA about TCM celebrating Audrey Hepburn Day. Of course, I encourage you set your DVR–if it can handle it. I assume your DVR is already set for the EVERY.SIMPSONS.EVER marathon on FXX. Yes, that’s right. FXX is airing every episode of the Simpsons in chronological order for the next 10 days. Mr. Burns covers it nicely.
I’m off to a wedding this weekend in upstate New York so I hope my DVR doesn’t implode. I’m particularly looking forward to seasons 5-7.
On Sunday, after running 4 miles through the Harlem Hills in the rain (it was practically uphill both ways), Hallie and I ventured downtown to SoHo to see the Rifle Paper Company popup shop showcasing the new Garance Dore collection. I have been a fan of Rifle Paper for many years and I love that the company is so successful and the cards etc so easily accessible now. The popup shop was full of people who managed to look impeccable despite the deluge outside–so Hallie and I clearly blended well in our bright raincoats and sneakers.
On Sunday, I went to church and then stopped at the Strand to pick up the gem below. I had a copy of this book many years ago (it may have been a gift for my father which was appropriated). It is quelle tattered now and the pages are falling out from so much use. I can’t wait to reaquaint myself with my favorite characters.
Today, I give you this gift. The top 100 Simpsons quotes, courtesy of Buzzfeed.
Anyway, my mother sent the sweetest card–I just love it. Because of course, it is the card Lisa Simpson gave Ralph when no else gave him a Valentine. Ralph, of course, immediately falls for Lisa thinking the card means something it does not. Lisa is punished for being nice–a lesson I learn repeatedly.
I’m off to get my nails done and eat a donut! Happy Valentine’s Day!
Last night, the show for which I work did a piece on the Harlem Shake–a youtube craze that is taking over. Silly memes. Anyway, I like The Simpsons version–the Homer Shake.
