While this has been a pretty unremarkable week in many ways, when you dig really deep, there are things to learn in our everyday lives...
1- Dogs really are walking garburators, as evidenced by when Alfie happily ate white asparagus for the first time. And dirt in the yard. And yes likely poop, and who the hell knows what else.2- For healthy eating while driving, a can of jalapeno Pringles fits perfectly into a Toyota Solara cup holder, now to be known as a Pringles Holder. You're welcome.
3- A Single Man didn't live up to the hype.
4- Colin Firth is stalking me. He was everywhere I was; we watched or stumbled across A Single Man, Love Actually, Shakespeare in Love all in two days. And he was on the radio. Yep, he wants me.
5- Jon Stewart looks hot with his new beard.
6- The toilet on a space shuttle has a problem with what NASA calls 'escapees' which is poop that gets away in zero gravity. The toilet has a rearview mirror so the toilet user can watch for this, as he or she is responsible for chasing the runaway turd down.
7- Chelsea Clinton married some Jewish dude (yee ha) in a big fancy wedding which likely cost millions of dollars. Haters did their hate thing, forgetting the whole Rush Limbaugh multi-million dollar fourth wedding thing.
8-When dozens of fruit flies invade your kitchen, a container filled with the potent mix of dishwashing detergent, water, and apple cider vinegar will bait and kill them.
9- When you decide you want a two-sided red leather sofa for your new home, and go furniture store to furniture store asking for one, 9 of 10 people will look at you with a stunned blank look, either a What the hell is that you morons, or How high are you really? Worry not, once you find the right place, you can order one in. And it will seriously rock. And cost a bundle.
10- Former President George W Bush has written his first book and will start his promotional tour on the Today show. When he has read his first book, he will appear on Good Morning America.
