On Is Snooze the Enemy?

@Lily Rowan I'm still pretty resentful about the "emergency work" that National Grid had to do on my street at 3am last month. Just let my building blow up! It would have been quieter.

@TheBourneApproximation Oh lord I played that for like two hours the other day. It was the perfect thing to let sit in the background and pay attention to occasionally while I caught up on Doctor Who.

I'm just a sleep-mumbler, myself, but check out Mike Birbiglia's sleepwalking story. It. is. incredible.

On The Cantaloupe Pimm's

@olivebee I don't know about the figs, but apple cider vinegar and maple syrup (or honey, brown sugar, etc.) is actually a good combo. Add ginger and you have switchel, aka haymaker's punch. It's old-school Vermont gatorade, basically.

On Famous People I Thought I Saw on the Street, But It Wasn’t Them at All

AHH. This reminded me that I saw a comedian/character actor at Downtown Crossing in Boston recently, except I can't remember his name and it's driving me nuts. I've just spent the last 20 minutes googling variations on "bald comedians."
