Let’s try something new and exciting for a change, shall we? This week’s obsessions are brought to you bright and early (for me), because I find the last thing I want to do after a long day in front of the computer is … be on the computer more. Be sure to let me know if you love this or hate this or are indifferent because you love me regardless.
- Skype: Our digital world is wonderful for keeping in touch, but there’s nothing quite as special as seeing your loved ones’ faces. Covered in chocolate. Giving apartment tours and taking lobby walks has never been easier with Skype.
- The Oscars: As awards season comes to a close, Sunday brings us the 85th Academy Awards. I can’t wait to see what host Seth MacFarlane will say and what BFF Jennifer Lawrence will spew. Watch it on ABC at 830 EST.
- Texts from Bennett: Fake or not, this compilation of texts from the author’s 17-year-old (white) cousin is hilarious. Many thanks to my friend Jess for reminding me of its existence.
- Taran Killam as Robyn: Tina Fey’s “Bossypants” mentioned the late-night antics of SNL’s writers’ room, and this is definitive proof. Wild and wacky, his tribute to “Call Your Girlfriend” is fantastical.
