Other Ten Percent 6/21/10

Jun 21 2010

Hi everybody! Did you all have a good weekend? Did you all high-five your fathers? Ok good. Did I tell you guys that my t-shirts came? Did I tell you I’d even ordered T-shirts? Ok well, I got this one which most of you won’t really get but will maybe still think looks cool? And then this one which all of you will get and will high-five about. I thought about getting this one but then I was like “You know what? Enough shirts.” Anyway, WATCH OUT, it’s links from the internet.

True story, some friends of my mother’s came into town at the end of last month and I spent a few days with all of them and they literally spent 10 minutes staring at an old menu at a hotel downtown. This entry is dedicated to that moment.
