The happiest of 25th birthdays to my very Best Friend in the wide world. I’m so very lucky to have found you in the hallway  outside of our respective first grade classrooms, and that we had agreed  to be friends with the certainty you can only have when you are six  years old. Best deal I’ve ever made.
So, to the person my mother refers to as the Fourth Deezy Child,  happy quarter century. It’s been a wild (and sometimes bumpy) ride from  that hallway, but now here we are, kind of actually adults, and you are  one of the smartest, kindest, most thoughtful people I know. (I guess we  did OK.) Happy happy happy 25th!

Amen.

My month of sloth is over. Time to wake up and smell the marathon training.
So begins ten weeks of Sunday worship at the alter of blood, sweat, and tears.

KC and the Sunshine Band - Give It Up

Just so that we’re clear: wherever I go, and as long as I live, this is what summer Saturday nights should sound like. They should sound like a god-awful song that has been played a million too many times, and smell a little like stale beer, and feel like a sticky bar stool that you sit on while you wait for all of your friends to finish closing up so that you can all go have a few dirt cheap beers on someone’s porch.

It doesn’t matter that you’re sick of cleaning or exhausted or that you hate this song to your core. You mom-dance anyway, because it’s summer and you’re by the ocean with your friends and life doesn’t get better than this.

Leslie attempts to explain to a cop how she shot Ron on their hunting trip.

When I wrote this about a month ago, I dedicated what amounted to way too much time to looking for this clip to add to what I was writing. Especially when what I was supposed to be doing was studying for that stupid test that we’re not talking about. So, in vindication of that wasted time, and because this is about 30 of the greatest seconds of TV ever, I reblog.
