Happy Saturday! Need weekend ideas? Look no further. Links here.
1. Watch Kimmy, read this article on empathy comedy.
I’ve watched the first episode of The Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt four times. Last Friday Tina Fey & Robert Carlock’s new, insanely quotable, show hit neftlix. Last Friday was also the day I happened to be diagnosed with a kidney infection- a pain I wish on nobody ever. But that’s finally over and my internal organs and I are happy again. The nice thing about having a debilitating infection? Having an entire Netflix season to binge waiting for you. One that stars Ellie Kemper. The Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt is uplifting and smart and needs to be seen by all. So does this.
2. Have Coffee With Someone Else
Meet someone you like at a place that’s local to your city. Unless you live in Seattle and that place is Starbucks. No Starbucks allowed. Here’s something I wrote on my fleeting Starbucks addiction for Man Repeller showcasing one example of my irrational behavior. But really, connect with someone in a coffee shop and I’m not talkin’ bout WiFi.
3. Plan Something You’re Excited About
Want to redecorate? Want to take a trip? Want to binge watch The Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt? Planning makes perfect, they say. Or something. What Rodarte rug would you sell your soul for? Where will you go on your next vacay? What snacks will you bring into bed with you & your laptop? I’m going to Madrid in April & haven’t done so much planning other than where I’ll be sleeping. Rainy forecast means I can stay inside and do some museum, shopping, dining, etc. research on a city I’ve never seen. Reccomendations, por favor.
4. Make Something With Lucky Charms.
In the faraway land of strange Pinterest holiday food, I found this Lucky Charms cake and wanted it. Tell me that isn’t a beautiful cake. Saint Patrick’s Day isn’t until Tuesday, but if you’re not partaking in parade watching or celebrating somehow, why not spend Sunday baking? Even better- share the good stuff with whoever you see on Monday. It’ll go from zero to a hundred real quick.

Today marks a week of straight of nonstop wind and water and sporadic bouts of sunlight that vanish in about two whole minutes.
We’re officially rained in here in Oban. Ferries have cancelled. A boat named The Elizabeth washed up on the bay in the wrong spot. I’m not sure if my umbrella is an appendage or just a lost cause. BUT WHAT ELSE ARE SUNDAYS FOR? I’ve written a rained-in recommendation list for you nice readers. Don’t act like it isn’t comforting to be trapped indoors when it’s cold.
