Does your family have inside jokes that you, after nearly thirty years, still don't really understand? There is one pun that still, always, makes my parents giggle like school children. It's a pun on the name of the great architect of the House of Commons, Augustine Pugin, and the great Pugett Sound, in Washington State. I don't remember the punchline (I never remember punchlines), but no matter what: when someone brings up Pugin, Dad says something like "You know, I've always wanted to visit that part of Washington." and Mom gets a fit of giggles and we three kids look around perplexed. All of which is to say: you should read this great piece on Pugin at 200 by George Weigl. (First Things)

Last night was our first official night of summer: we went to the local dive, and drank about a pitcher of Yeungling each. Needless to say, trying to explain to Stearns what a tumblr was, was pretty funny. Relatedly I have a new favorite tumblr: couture sandwich. (via Cup of Jo)
