Friday Round-Up: April 4, 2014

Happy weekend! I’m currently in sunny Tucson, Arizona with my mom and sister for a girls’ getaway. On the docket is hiking in Saguaro National Park, perhaps a bit of a spa day, and margaritas so large I might drown in them. Happily. Death by margarita. What are you up to?

P.S. speaking of margs, here’s drunk puppy.


The long, long wait to be a grandparent. This is a really interesting facet in a larger conversation about women having kids later in life.

The United States of Bros: A Map and Field Guide. I can really only speak to Chicago’s bro, but this is dead on.

The complete ranking of almost every single Mitch Hedberg joke.

– What to expect from “Mad Men” season 7. I’m so unbelievably excited for April 13. #TeamPeggy

How city living affects your health. Some surprising stuff in there.

How long would you survive in a zombie apocalypse? I only got 3 months, which is like half of the first season of “The Walking Dead.” That’s not even enough time to become a major character!

DJ Tanner, Kimmie Gibler, and Steve from “Full House” pose together in 2014. 10-year-old Jorie is delighted by this.

6 ways to make your career standout, written by my talented friend and blogger, Amy Frye.

The cast of “The Lion King” bursts into a spontaneous rendition of “The Circle of Life” on a plane ride from Brisbane to Sydney. Okay, their fellow passengers did not seem impressed enough. I would’ve been in the back of the plane, like this:



  1. Well, I still watch Full House on the weekly, so I’m pretty excited about that one :) And just by the title, I can already tell that the United State of Bros is going to be amazing!

  2. You crack me up! Enjoy your trip :)

  3. I love Mitch Hedberg and Mad Men!! Eek!

  4. Dude, drown-capable margs sound amazing. :)

    Also, I *love* the bro map. The description of DC bros is dead on. Like, frighteningly accurate.

  5. Apparently I’m only going to last 3 months… that’s sad… I thought I had more in me than that!

  6. Arizona? You’re so close to me, we could practically hold hands! That GIF and all the bros. Perfection.

  7. Oh my goodness, that Lion King video just gave me goosebumps! Could you imagine that happened to you? So amazing. And now I really need to go see a show! Have fun on your girls weekend, soak up all that sun!

  8. Happy weekend Jorie!
