Aziz Ansari, Warby Parker and a monkey blanket – Friday Favorites

Hello, March! Hello, Spring! The weather in Florida has already warmed up and things are definitely looking Springy here. My sympathies go out to those still living in snow. Please remember that I spent a great deal of my life living in the Midwest, so I remember the gloominess and frustration of lingering winter weather. Florida isn’t a state, it’s a decision. Spending this Florida Friday linking up with Oh, Hey Friday, High Five for Friday and Friday Favorites (add’l links below)!


Favorite Song This Week


GDFR by Flo Rida. Don’t love the video, but do love playing the song (too loudly) in my car, but hey, it is what it is. My music choices are occasionally inexplicable.

Favorite Funny This Week


My favorite funny this week was actually Aziz Ansari’s entire interview on Conan O’Brien, but you can’t put that into a single image. So instead, this great quote from Parks and Recreation will have to do. Note: Aziz Ansari: Live at Madison Square Garden is available on Netflix as of today! I got to see him live at the Oddball Comedy & Curiosity Festival and he was amazing. Very much looking forward to watching!




Favorite Piece of Mail This Week


My Warby Parker trial eyeglass frames! I’ve been dying to try out Warby Parker for quite some time. After I got around to visiting my dog-loving eye doctor, I finally had an excuse! Warby Parker will send you five pairs of frames (your choice of styles) with non-prescription lenses to try on at home. For free! This is awesome, because even if you upload your photo to some of the other online eyeglass frame sites, it’s tough to determine what frames are going to really knock it out of the park in real life.

So, you choose five potential frames from the website, your choices arrive on your doorstep, you try them on and ask friends. Once you’ve made your decision, you send the trial frames back and order the frames with your prescription lenses. The test frames arrived very quickly, which was a nice surprise. Even better? When you purchase your glasses from Warby Parker, they provide a pair of eyeglasses to someone in need. I’m certain that I love this company. I’m less certain about which pair of frames look best – I’ve narrowed it down to Marshall (left) and Daisy (right). Which do you think is more attractive? Or should I go to another shape altogether?

Least Favorite Surprise This Week


Did you know that the time changes this weekend? Yes? Great. I did NOT know that until yesterday. I could swear that the time used to change later in March, closer to my birthday. I can’t keep up with all these changes, people. Longer school years? Moving the time change dates? Kim Kartrashian as a blond? No. No to all of it. While I’m excited for longer days, I am not excited about losing an hour of sleep.

Fun Fact: the photo below was taken in my boss’s office when I worked at a law firm.

      The frames on the right are definitely winning the popularity contest, but my mother implied (in a very kind but extremely indirect manner) that perhaps neither was truly great. *Sigh*

    I cant even tell a difference in the glasses!!! and my ipad has retina – clearly its not working. Or maybe Im just too tired and need 5oclock wine wake me upper. and haha that’s awesome you slept in the law firm. I used to draw on my bosses white board all the things he was scared of. Like sharks, and hoards of ants attacking his farm.

    what was better was the CEO supported my taunts 🙂

      The frames are very similar, Stephanie, so don’t feel like you’re missing a huge difference. But I suggest wine, anyway. Aren’t supportive business owners the best?

    Whose office is that?? Mike’s??? Hahahahaha. Also no to KK as a blonde. And you really liked Aziz Ansari live? I like him on Parks & Rec but hate him on every comedy cut I hear on Sorius. That said, I still feel like I should give him a chance.

      Sirius. I fixed that twice and it still autocorrected. What is a Sorius?

        Ha! I’m not sure, but I feel like it would be in the Harry Potter books.

      Burks’ office 🙂 I do like Aziz Ansari, live! At the Oddballs tour he was SO much better than Louis C.K., who was headlining. I’m not a Louis fan, but the people I went with are and they agreed Aziz was the best part of the evening.
