Pictures from my Phone & Weekly Distractions

Today is Cathie's birthday. Since she was born, we have landed on the moon, the Soviet Union fell, and cookie butter was invented. Coincidence? I think not.

Happy birthday, mother.

And now, your Pictures & Distractions:
Sometimes Mr. Pants looks like a very old wizard who is about to drop some bomb wisdom on everyone. 

Lagoon days with Hannah Rose begin!

Mr. Pants accidentally wore his winter coat to this summer.

Mr. Scraps hasn't quite mastered the concept of personal space.

During a quick jaunt into town during a layover in Copenhagen last week.

Crap to distract you from whatever you're supposed to be doing:

We started a podcast at TV & Jelly where we make fun of TV.

Top 20 cities according to guy who has visited every country. Thanks, Michelle.

Hilarious photoshop battle with the Queen's green dress. Thanks, Kenneth.

The hen who is sailing around the world. Thanks, Melissa.

More chicken shaming. Thanks, Jonelle.

Truth. Unless you're raising Fortify. Thanks, Julie.

A review of Paul Simon's awesome new album, Stranger to Stranger. Thanks, Alesha.

Dean Strang is on tour! Thanks, Sarah.

Interesting wedding cakes. Thanks, Anonymous.

Fried chicken phone case. Thanks, Cara.

Rentee scams renter. Thanks, Melissa.

  1. 1. HAPPY BIRTHDAY CATHIE! I'll post a better happy birthday wish for her on IMZY :).

    2. Mr. Pants looks like Falcor in that first picture.

    3. Uhm - where is your June Snapple shirt for Lagoon Days???????

  2. I love Mr. Pants.

  3. Meanwhile in Beaver, UT a marketing director is either a genius of the viral advertising campaign, or has led a very VERY sheltered life

  4. Love P&D. It was very difficult to have them gone for a couple of weeks. It was very selfish of you not to post them just because you were traveling and living your life, etc. I hope you think long and hard before you do something like that again.

  5. I have a cockapoo, he's 13. I promise they never learn the concept of personal space.
    It's cute and annoying all at the same time.

  6. My roommate's dog has the same lack of personal space understanding. It would be funny, except that he ALWAYS sits on ME.
