Every morning as I walk the dogs through the neighborhood, I silently play a game called “Has This Always Been Here?”

Today’s contestant is pretty cool. I would like to think I would have noticed it at least once over the past three years, but alas, I suspect it has been on this wall the whole time.

Lachlan’s 3rd birthday.

We had a fantastic dinner party last night. Casey made Vietnamese sausage in lettuce wraps with all sorts of fixings and sauces. The pineapple anchovy sauce isn’t pictured but kicked all manner of ass.

Behind the scenes of Orange Is the New Black

Fantastic read by the real Larry (of OINTB). His telling of the Piper-Larry story is kind of magical.

jkottke:

I was 29 years old and living the dream, or at least my version of it, when everything changed. I was in love with an amazing woman and had a rent-controlled sublet in New York City’s West Village and a good job at a glossy magazine. By any estimation as I now recall my life before it was tossed upside down, my girlfriend and I had no discernible problems.

Jay Z, 99 Problems

I need you all to understand that I heard this for the very first time about six weeks ago. SIX WEEKS AGO. When I discovered that it came out about ten years ago, I fully appreciated the utter fog I was in during the mid-aughts.

To be clear, I knew there was a song by JayZ called 99 Problems. I am not that damn deaf to contemporary cultural references. Obama used the reference, for fuck’s sake. I just had never actually heard the song until this summer.

Anyway, this is my new jam like woah. Also, Jay Z has a remarkably accurate understanding of his rights with regard to search and seizure following a traffic stop and I can respect the fuck out of that.

There’s nothing like a fried egg with fish sauce on rice to complete a meal.

I marinated the flap steak, mostly because I am learning to love the term “flap steak.”

I am an attorney on the right, yet left coast.

This is where I leave my breadcrumbs.

I don't like long walks on the beach, but my dogs do.
