Things That Make You Go Hmm

This week has been extremely busy. Lots of working. And then lots of working when I get home from work. Then there’s the squeezing in time for workouts and after that there’s not room for much else. I had a few awesome runs this week and I’m hoping that’s good karma for my long run this Saturday. But I’ll talk about that later. First, we need to talk about this stuff.

1.  I know I mentioned this on Twitter and Facebook the other day, but I think it’s worth mentioning again.

I can’t even come up with a more unlikely couple in my head, that’s how much this threw me. And they met because they collaborated on a song for her upcoming record. Now, I can’t stop combining Nickelback and Avril Lavigne songs in my head to see what I come up with.

2.  I subscribe to Goop (Gwyneth Paltrow’s blog) because I love her posts about movie premieres and traveling abroad. Recently, I found out she sells various clothing items on the site including the limited edition “Goop tee.” It’s only sold in one size (small!) and for a bargain price, so I thought you guys might want in on it.

I hope that t-shirt is made out of rare baby seals for $90.00.

3.  I was shopping in the  accessory section on the Forever 21 Web site when I noticed this.

Another good deal right there. $2.80 plus shipping and handling and maybe you’ll get your Sour Patch Kids craving satisfied in 7-9 business days.

4.  I follow Alec Baldwin on Twitter. While I was in Texas, he tweeted a bunch of question marks and within 7 minutes, his tweet had THIRTY NINE re-tweets.

Who re-tweets that stuff? Why doesn’t anyone re-tweet all my question marks? I just checked today and that tweet is up to 87 re-tweets, which tells us that there are 87 confirmed idiots on Twitter.

5.  Did you know Megan Mullally is married to Nick Offerman from Parks and Recreation? I didn’t. But you know how I found out? Michelle emailed me this:

I’m thinking of replicating that with the hubs.


Normally, I would link to past Things That Make You Go Hmm posts but I’m too lazy today. If you need more of this ridiculousness, click the category on the right-hand side bar of the blog and enjoy. 🙂

And lastly, thanks to my friend Sara, I now have 35 (more) reasons to love Aaron Paul.

I’m just a little offended they stopped at 35.

    I love your forever 21 picture. It made me thing of Sesame Street “One of these things is not like the other” song.

  2. Other strange couples I never understood:

    Mila Kunis & Macaulay Culkin
    Alanis Morissette & Ryan Reynolds

    I actually did know that they were married, but for the life of me I can’t remember when I first read that. Probably when she started showing up on Parks and Recreation. I think it was Cosmo this month that had a whole page of unlikely couples. I wish I could remember any of them off of the top of my head because they were all head-scratchers.

    I was really shocked about Avril’s engagement, too…I thought she was still with Brody Jenner. Shows you how well I keep up with celebrity gossip. And you and your husband should totally do your own version of that photo–awesomeness incarnate.

  5. Literally laughed at the Sour Patch thing. How bizarre!

  6. Sarah S @RunningOnWords

    Avril and Nickelback Dude’s baby will be the musical antichrist.

  7. Chelsie @ Balance, Not Scale

    How did I not hear about that pair?! And I agree — that is THE strangest pair I’ve ever heard of … I actually just cannot lace them together in my mind.
    Paula, this post really, really made me smile. And yes, it really did make me go Hmm! So thank you for that!! 🙂

  8. LOL, I forgot I sent that picture to you. It is so disturbing and yet, I can’t stop staring. Helps that I share a birthday with him 🙂

    Don’t hate on my GOOP. She has good intentions. Except when she’s selling $300 plastic trays (oh yes that happened last month).

    • Paula

      I saw the plastic tray yesterday! There’s a picture of her working at a desk and that tray is sitting on it (with nothing in it). haha. Yes, that will make me buy it GP.

    You are hilarious! What a great way to kick off my Friday. Nicely done.

    Nick Offerman is awesome – he has a woodshop where he and others make beautiful furniture – check it out!

  11. Watermelon Sour Patches ARE the best. The perfect accessory, really. Until you run out.
