Just rolled back into Salt Lake City after a very fun night at The Porch. I should have the videos up for you over the weekend. A huge thanks to those of you who came out tonight. As always, it was so fun to meet you and laugh together and try on one another's clothes. And a special thanks, as always, to Ms. Jolyn Metro, who filmed it. Jo Metro, I don't know what I would do without you. I mean, I would be able to live with a lot less fear, but what's the fun in that?

And now, your pictures and distractions.

Lights turning on across the street from my office.

Snapchat from my friend Ben who is trying his hand lately at Snapchat puns.


I walked out to my parked car on Sunday to find that it was completely smashed up in several places. Fortunately homegirl left a note.

Just about to begin the 8th annual Turtlenog party in the common room at my apartment building. Despite the blizzard outside, it turned out to be a complete success. 

Turtlenog! I drank enough eggnog for all of us. FOR ALL OF US.

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

Inspiring video that puts our planet in perspective. Thanks, Kyle.

A collection of lies told to children. Thanks, Margee.

Nativity scene overrun by feral cats. Thanks, Karen.

I don't want no bunny banana frog ok no way! Thanks, Brian.

I think Christmas is over the top. But this is kind of fun.  Thanks, Melissa.

If it has to be winter, you might as well have a colorful igloo. Thanks, Melissa.

31 building fails. Thanks, Emma.

Let's all take a minute to mock California's very confused understanding of the word "cold." Thanks, Paul.
