i love lists friday

  1. What happens when you hurl water balloons at intimidating bald men & take photos of it.
  2. Wes Anderson’s Slow Motion Scenes.  1:04 is one of my favorite moments on film EVER.
  3. The Art of the Subject Line. They usually stump me.
  4. Don’t try to impress your friends. Try to impress your heroes. 
  5. These noodles look super good! I’m sure Casey would love this dish.
  6. News report from 1981 about the internet. Wow. Just. WOW.
  7. This hiker!! I love this video.  He’s got sparkle eyes.
  8. I want a caftan. I just want someone else to sew it for me.
  9. We’re getting Dunkin’ Donuts in Northern California!
  10. Spray paint your trophies! What a cool idea.
  11. What a way to look back at 2013. Hula, you inspire me.
  12. A story about toast in San Francisco. I hope my brother reads this.
  13. Stay At Home Dad Writes Post-Its for His Wife. This made me smile.
  14. This Raspberry Jam Crostata would be a perfect afternoon treat.
  15. Loved reading this article about how being a mom has turned into a competitive sport. 
  16. I really hope this story about Jennifer Lawrence is true.
  17. What happens when a food writer can’t taste?
  18. This dress made me pine for dinners outdoors and juicy strawberries with lime. Sigh…

    Thank you so much for the shout out! This totally made my morning! Love love love that dress from Anthro and the video you made with Joy! Two words: acrylic boxes. You rock. Freaking love it.

  • Jess

    That story about Jennifer Lawrence was fake…..it was tagged satire at the bottom 🙁

  • Sarah

    Thank you for the article about toast and Trouble coffee! I was recently visiting family who live in that neighborhood, and we took the streetcar past it and I wondered out loud about the coffee shop with the tree outside, but I couldn’t find it on a map. What a fun coincidence to read about it and to be able to recognize it so easily from the article!

    Dunks in Northern Cali means I can now permit my husband to apply for teaching positions there once he gets tenured. And by “permit”, I mean “demand”.

  • Jami

    I love your “I love lists Friday” segment, Tracy. By Friday, my brain needs a guided trip around the internet. You’re awesome, thanks. 🙂

  • Bro

    I already read that article this week but forgot to send to you!

    I love that it’s circular with the Dunkin’ Donuts story!

  • Grace Ann

    Love your list as always! Wish I had seen the one about painting old trophies before I told my mom to throw out all of mine. ha ha! Oh well, it is a cool idea though!

  • Kristina

    We’ll trade you Dunkin Donuts for a few In-N-Outs in the Midwest. Deal?! It’s a hard life following CA instagrammers, I’ll tell you what.

  • Dixya @ Food, Pleasure, and Health

    #7 is truly amazing. I really enjoyed the video with Joy 🙂

  • Erin Hess

    I will sew you several caftans if you make me breakfast for one week (with cocktails in it !). Teeny-tiny detail, I live in France… But who doesn’t need some challenge once in a while… 😉
