I did the thing with the envelopes and the memories for my mom’s 60th. She cried. Success! 

This is VERY cool. Could be done for any major birthday (next one coming up in a few years for my group of peeps is 40) or even maybe an anniversary. 

Definitely recommend it for an earlier milestone - I started harassing requesting notes from about 60 people in June, several of whom passed the request along to others, and I still ended up with less than two dozen participants. (People are the worst, so definitely overshoot and ask for more than you think you’ll need!) Fortunately, most of those provided a couple of memories, so I split those up into separate envelopes. The rest are filled with old photos without notes, but I know they’re pictures that will trigger memories for my mom.

#my main goal on any gift-giving occasion is to make people cry #so I got preeeeetty excited when this came up on Pinterest


The downside to having Dictator make her own lunch is that everything related to sandwich-making is now sticky.

All the time.


#I just want to be able to make toast without sticking to the bag of bread #and the butter dish #and the cutlery drawer

I see your point, but holy shit, Sara Bareilles killed it (in the good way). (Also, no pun intended).

Gosh, didn’t she, though? It was a beautiful rendition, and if I could get my hands on a recording, I probably would. It just felt like a strange choice, given the circumstances.

Lovely tribute, but…

Does anyone else think “Smile” was a questionable song choice for the Emmys’ In Memoriam presentation, given that it ended with a tribute to a gentleman who succumbed to depression?

Sorry, but “you’ll find that life is still worthwhile if you just smile” isn’t quite how depression works.


#great song otherwise #and Sara Bareilles was really lovely #but just... urgh #felt wrong to me
