Back in 2008 I found myself inspired by a dress worn by Suri Cruise — who was, at the time, all of two years old — and that made me a little uncomfortable.

Today, I saw a photo of Usher with his two adorable sons, and again I’m feeling a twinge of sartorial inspiration:

See the cognac leather (pleather?) jacket on the little one on the right? That is basically the exact jacket I’ve been looking for for months! And probably in the right size, too — since it’s clearly too big for him, and I am hoping for a shrunken look. (Armed with this photo of Blake Lively, my mom even tried to track down a jacket for me, but was told that cognac was so two seasons ago. “You mean, two seasons from now, right?” I responded.)

(And no, in case you’re wondering, I did not just type this question into the search bar and then take a screen shot; I actually found this image floating around the internet. Sheesh.)

This is the background on my laptop right now. Every time I look at it, it makes me laugh!

21 kids at age 29There’s a lot that can be (and has been) said about the larger, more political issues that come into play in this story about a 29 year old man in Tennessee who has fathered 21 children with 11 women—including child support payments and welfare, for example—but really, is it not kind of unintentionally hilarious to see, in this list of child support hearings at a local court house, the same name 11 times in a row?

“I don’t consider Frank a duck. I just consider him a friend.”

Jezebel featured this adorable story the other day about a duck-hunting trucker who bought a fluffy little duckling as a joke some time ago. The duck, who he named Frank, has now become the trucker’s constant companion on the road. The video of the two buddies cruising around together, seen in the link above, is just precious!
