DISGRASIAN’s Summer Reading: We All Scream For Ice Cream

August 24th, 2010 | 4 comments | Posted by Diana

We’ll be away from our desks the month of August, carrying on with the non-bloggy aspects of our lives, watching mindless movie blockbusters, and indulging in summery drinks made with generous pours of bourbon. During this month, we’ll be linking each day to a different website that we ♥. Hopefully you’ll discover something delightful and new while we’re gone. If not, you are a serious Captain Crankypants and are probably in dire need of a summery drink made with a generous pour of bourbon.

‘Til September, lovelies.





Summer shmummer. Guys, it’s too fucking hot in Los Angeles right now to do anything. Too hot to walk, too hot to think, too hot to blog, too hot to be nice. It is literally too hot for me to like anybody else’s site enough to send you there, so I’m breaking the DISGRASIAN vacasian rules.

Instead, I am sharing a video of a Japanese robot serving ice cream. It’s the only thing that can make me smile at this particular moment because I am COOKING INSIDE MY OWN SKIN. GOD HELP LOS ANGELES.

Thanks, G Scott and Doug!

Here Come the Holidaysians

Call us grinches, but as much as Jen and I love presents the winter holidays, it’s unlikely that anybody’s going to get a personalized Season’s Greetings card from us this year. It’s not because we don’t like everybody, or that we can’t afford card stock, or that we don’t have a design aesthetic in mind. It’s just not likely. Here’s the truthier truth: I’m just not that kind of person–the kind that sends perfectly-penned handwritten thank-you notes after a dinner party, or puts updated photos of my friends’ children on my refrigerator. Frankly, I’m not even feeling all too festive this year. And maybe Jen is (she does write a lovely thank-you note), but, well, she’s a bit hampered by her partner in this situasian.

All points aside, I’d hate for you to spend the holiday season without proper joyous treats. So in the meantime, please enjoy Big Bang’s holiday Baskin Robbins spot (made in their homeland), to keep you in the jingly spirit:
