Friday fragments

Welcome to Friday fragments, my weekly recap of topics too big to forget, yet too small to be their own post.

My friend Marty sent me this and I got a chuckle out of it.

I was off work today. I have leave I needed to use or loose so I took today off. I ran a few errands (post office, bank, etc.) and signed/addressed Christmas cards. I got about 1/2 of my list done and in the mail.

I saw these photos over on Bob's blog and just had to repost them!
You KNOW none of her friends can complete with her holiday spirit.

I must have gotten this photo and its accompanying story from 25 different people this week!
What do you get for that person on your holiday gift list who has everything? THIS!! Or, maybe THIS!!

My friend Jared sent me this, and I've since seen it on a few other blogs, too. Love it!

By now you've heard that NY voted down the marriage equality bill, but did you hear the speech given by Senator Diane Savino? Its concise, its logical, its truthful, and its wonderful. I'm in love with this woman! And although gay New Yorkers are likely still smarting over the loss, at least they can feel good that they have such an ally in Senator Savino.

Jared sent me this and I love it, too!
My friend Lisa sent me this article about a couple who live in the smallest apartment in Manhattan - just 175 square feet! I love this! I realize that may sound insane coming from a man who lives in a house about 23 times the size of their apt, but its true. Small spaces force you to only keep what you can't live without. No collections, no clutter. Its liberating. And to own an apt in Manhattan in just 2 years, giving them money to travel, eat out, etc is a fabulous concept. I think I could do it!! Not with Spouse; but I could do it.

Hope everyone has a great weekend!
Crush du Jour: Seth McFarlane

That picture of the guy hanging off the roof looks all too familiar. Over the Thanksgiving holiday, I was stuck up on my mothers roof for like 2 and a half hours because the ladder blew over. It's a sore subject.

The guy on the ladder is priceless. That's why you have your phone on you at all times.

I had to laugh about the gun rack thing. Couple of U brackets and you can make your own for < $10. Besides, for bedside you can't beat a .45ACP, easier to handle than a 12 gauge and it's got stopping power too.

As to apartments, for Keyron and I it takes about 900 sqft. I get about 250sqft, Keyron gets the remaining 650 sqft for clothes.

I love that one!

I got the "Ditto" photo too. Love it! I plan to post it next week on my blog. LOL.

oooh I'm happy to see that you too have the hots for Seth McFarlane, he's cute and his hilarious personality just makes him hotness!!

I would love to see the 175 sq ft apartment-- like just what they have and what they are doing without... like a toilet or shower.

Oh, and at 1000 per sq ft as the norm... 175K for that apartment!

Joy said...

That apartment is smaller than the cabin on the cruise ship, I think. It sounds about the same as does the bathroom. Way too small for me to live in! Everything costs so much in NYC. I don't know how people afford to live there.

I checked off the list and am definitely going to Hell according to that guy.

The hair on that woman is unbelievable.

Love the "Ditto" house!
