Amber & Honey Traps

I'm like a bear during hunting season with this one.

I mean you put the (remaining) Beastie Boys, ?uestlove, Ira Glass, Reggie Watts, Justin Bond, and Cibo Matto all in your video for a song about being proud of your bad dancing?  I am in your cross hairs, Yoko.

Amber & Mudita

Today at work, a colleague asked me for a day off to get married, now that she can.

And I cried tears of joy for her.  (Thank goodness I was working remotely and our conversation was via Skype.)

Heysoos, you kids in love make my heart sing.

Amber & Preaching to the Choir, Casey

This gentleman, who made this other hysterical bicycling video that speaks truth, says it more succinctly and with more photodocumentary evidence than I have.

I love you, NYC Bike Share.  You changed my city life.

Amber & Pockabooks

This is my new theme song.

When the pocka-lypse comes, those of us with giant purses are going to be the salvation of the tiny wallet people.  You're welcome.

Amber & Important Lessons

R.I.P., Annette Funicello.

You were the prettiest ballerina I ever saw.  (And maybe where Kate Bush got the idea?)

I liked you way better than Spin & Marty.

You taught me the most important lesson I ever learned and still repeatedly forget.

I want to minimize confusion.  And also find my Mickey Mouse record player.

And jam out to those special songs by Annette.

Amber & We'll Pay For This Later

I feel guilty, but I also know we'll pay for it when the revolution comes.

Our ever-watchful James brought the odd relationship between tea and chimps to light with this passage from the Annotated Prachett File, a weird world of words about which I knew nothing until tonight.

For the entertainment of their younger visitors, British zoos used to have the tradition of holding Chimpanzees' Tea Parties, where the chimps were dressed up and seated at a table, drinking and eating from a plastic tea set.

Chimp tea parties have remained in the British consciousness due to the TV advertisements for PG Tips tea bags featuring chimps pouring tea.

Huh. So there's that.
