Better than grillz (if that’s even possible)

The Olympics never cease to entertain me. Normally, I’d be satisfied with swimming, gymnastics, badminton, skeet shooting … whatever. But this year, I’ve found a new favorite: Boris Johnson, London’s wildly-maned mayor. Today, he managed the seemingly impossible and officially outdid all Olympians–and himself, for that matter.

Let’s leave his humble opinion of the opening ceremony and his rather lackluster assessment of London public transportation alone for the time being, and skip right on down to “jolly good reason to feel cheerful about the Olympics” number 19, which, somehow, rises above all others.

19. As I write these words there are semi-naked women playing beach volleyball in the middle of the Horse Guards Parade immortalised by Canaletto. They are glistening like wet otters and the water is plashing off the brims of the spectators’ sou’westers. The whole thing is magnificent and bonkers.

How touching … if you get my drift. Hardy har har.

I don’t even know what half those words mean, but I do know that this most certainly beats the shiznat out of Ryan Lochte and his casual red, white, and blue grillz.

Hiatus-ing, briefly

Dear FRANDZ,

It has been quite some time since I last posted. I will admit to feeling a wee bit badly for leaving you all hanging in the lurch, wondering where in the world Lethal had wandered off to … Well, life is looking up: I’m turning myself in. I didn’t wander off so much as get busier and busier at work. Things are looking pretty cRaYZee for the next couple of weeks, so my musings will most likely be sporadic at best. Here is a throwback to keep you going for at least a couple of days. Who doesn’t love Passion Pit?

Attack of the cute

I know literally no one who needs any help finding ways to procrastinate on the internet. But, in the off chance that someone out there does need help, well .. let’s just say no need to ask, I’m here to offer my assistance. Today, I guide you to this delight of a website, which I myself only recently discovered by way of a spontaneous early-morning e-mail.
