Pictures from my Phone & Weekly Distractions

Happy weekend, Strangers. I just ran on a treadmill for 90 minutes. It was the worst 90 minutes of my life. Besides every 90-minute period of every single scout camp I ever went on.

And now, your Pictures and Distractions:

My new sunglasses and old duck face. I texted this picture to Jolyn 20 times in one day. She never responded and I haven't heard from her since.

The Mormons!

The destruction of Salt Lake City continues.

It's like the Oscars planned this.

Meet Brandt. He's my Ironman training buddy. We spend 400,000 hours a day together. And he sometimes has Napoleon Dynamite hair.

Crap to distract you from whatever you're supposed to be doing:

An article on Jelly Fish lake that is making me miss Palau. Thanks, Melissa.

Cat traps family in bedroom after attacking baby. Thanks, Michael (and many others who sent it after Michael).

Man dances for 30 minutes on a street corner after losing a bet. Thanks, Natalie.

How to do anything TV. Thanks, Brian.

Save the parasites! We love you, Lohan! Thanks, Bridge.

Awkward but kind of sweet video of strangers kissing. Thanks, Mark.

Cat face pillows. Thanks, Vanessa.

What's wrong with Sesame Street. Thanks, Angela.

What Jurassic Park would look like if the raptors were cats. Thanks, Christie.

Two sentence horror stories. Thanks, Angela.

What America theme parties look like around the world. Thanks, Angela.

Hybrid animals. The stuff of nightmares. Thanks, Jami.

  7. The best part about those american parties is that they are pretty accurate.

  8. Eli, your hair looks totally great today

  9. Um excuse me, Eli?

    I tweeted you this video of two choir boys meowing soulfully, but i think you didn't see it. Hopefully you see this comment.
