Friday Round-Up: June 13, 2014

Happy Friday! It’s been a long, hard week. I’m going to spend this weekend with family celebrating my grandpa’s extraordinary life. Squeeze your loved ones tight. Xoxo.

Unusual animal friendships that will melt your heart.

The perfect time to arrive at the airport: “The best time to arrive at the airport is as late as feasibly possible, with just enough time to make it to your plane, says mathematician Jordan Ellenberg.” Seriously, this has been my theory for YEARS. Years, I tell you. And now science is now on my side! (Detractors call this theory “insane”.)

– I wrote a piece for the Groupon Guide about Chicago’s top dog-friendly restaurants. Look for a Winnie pic :)

– A sneak peek at Amy Poehler’s upcoming memoir. Yesssss.

The running of the baby goats.

How to French braid your own hair in 90 seconds: a video tutorial I did for the Groupon Guide.

The best way to whiten your teeth, hands down (Pssst, I also wrote this).

91-year-old woman breaks marathon record.

Now hiring: panda nannies. BRB getting my resume ready.


  1. OMG I want to be a panda nanny. Those panda babies are so stinkin cute!

  2. I’m sorry to hear about your grandpa. Way to go on the Groupon Guide!

  3. Marty and I almost overslept for our flight to Florida last summer – we made it with ten minutes to spare; however, it was that moment that got me thinking about why we arrive so early when we can just as easily arrive a half hour early or less and still make our flight. Columbus is a big airport but it isn’t the biggest; I think I’d worry about time a bit more at the larger airports with more traffic!

  4. Definitely going to check out some of those patio spots this summer with the crew, thanks for the link.

  5. I’m so sorry for your loss Jorie. Internet hugs.

  6. Oh, I’m so sorry about your grandpa. Sending thoughts and prayers your way.
