Because Quinn Miller is a genius and deserves to go viral…
New Yorkers are a the nicest people. I see proof of it all the time.
Take today, for instance.
The wind instantly picked up the bills and scattered them in the street. Did the rude, me-me-me New Yorkers of TV and movies jump upon them and run for it?
Not a chance.
Instead, three people stepped on the loose bills and stood waiting for me to retrieve them. We all shared a laugh as I collected my change and thanked them for their help.
Nice folks. Yep, we’ve got lots of ‘em here in NYC.
I stole this image from my cousin’s Facebook page.
She was encouraging her children not to feel the need to follow what everyone else is doing — to strike out on their own.
I couldn’t agree more.
But here’s another thing to keep in mind — not only do we see the lone bird first, it’s far easier to take a shot at him. So if you take a different route, be prepared to defend your choice.
(Don’t worry — it’s totally worth it.)
Did you know the Internet was international? Seems obvious, right?
Apparently not to some.
Dan Stevens, who played the recently deceased Matthew Crawley on Downton Abbey. Chris O’Dowd of Bridesmaid and Girls fame. But they were quickly corrected by pushy, ethnocentric Americans that “Mother’s Day is still a couple of months away.”
I was at once embarrassed and entertained.
Cable television and the Internet may make programming and actors from other countries available to us here in America, but it doesn’t mean we’re necessarily going learn anything.
Well…at least we’re predictable.
While The Sticky Egg is no doubt your favorite egg-y blog — thank you for that — chances are you prefer eggs cooked in a somewhat different style.
But what does your favorite egg prep say about you?
MindLab International researched the psychology behind this consumer choice in a study conducted for the British Egg Industry Council. Here is what they found your egg choice says about you:
Strangely, the study didn’t say what a preference for The Sticky Egg says about you….
Brilliant? Good looking? I’d say that’s a pretty safe bet.
Hank or Mark?
If you are a devotee of Parenthood, this quandary makes both perfect sense…and is perfectly frustrating.
When Sarah (Lauren Graham) and Mark (Jason Ritter) initially began dating, I was thrilled. Is there a cuter couple in TV-land? I challenge you to find one. Their engagement was the only logical conclusion.
Get them to the altar, tie the knot, add a jaunty bow.
But then Ray Romano joined the cast as Hank — crusty, blustery, more-age-appropriate Hank. He and Sarah made sense, too. (Plus Mark suddenly turned into a woman…so really, what else could Sarah do?)
Now Mark has found his balls and is challenging Hank for Sarah’s hand — who will she pick? More importantly, who do you want her to choose?

Emma, I have seen your future, and you are a success!
Let me explain.
My brother recently posted this picture of his granddaughter Emma sporting reindeer antlers at her school’s Christmas concert. Her holiday headgear and mischievous smile reveal a lot — a fun-loving, entertaining youngest child.
No, I’m not talking about me (although as the baby of the family, I have been known to grab the spotlight from time to time). I mean Emma’s actual doppelganger.
I’ve met her.
She’s an MBA candidate at the Boston University School of Management. And when I showed her Emma’s photo, she was quick to agree that the two were kindred spirits.
Emma, you are in excellent company.
