Slink’s Links

I started writing for a new show on Entertainment Weekly. It’s called Welcome to Sweden. I have a ton of IKEA and meatball jokes, ready to go! You can read my recap here. #clickclickclick

I received this link from my friend Some Guy in Austin. Let the new “Hey girl…” pregnancy memes. My favorite is the third one!

And my friend Rose sent me this link via Facebook. Brian Williams writing a bachelorette blog? I’d totally read it.

Which kid from the Harry Potter series is all grown up now?

While other kids were out partying in college, I was in my apartment watching That Thing You Do. I loved the Wonders/Oneders and I affectionately to this day still call them the Oh-need-ers. Here are 21 facts you may not have known about the movie! Amy I the only one who owns this DVD? And VHS? And soundtrack?!

When I was in fourth grade, I won the Citizen Bee award and was called up to the podium in front of the entire school. Of course the principal looked at my uniquely spelled name and enthusiastically instructed “Linky Ray” to join her on stage. I looked around for the foreign exchange student who was lucky enough to win such a prestigious award and was quickly ushered out of my seat by my teacher.

Needless to say, Linky stuck through high school, morphed into Slinky and was later shortened to Slink. To this day, a handful of people call me Slink, including my high school friend Julie, my niece and everyone standing around my niece at any given moment because she has never heard of this stranger named Lincee.

LIncee – I was thinking about you when I heard the news about the baby – I hope you are not too devastated! Love the “Hey girls” but my favorite is the one about looking good in elastic pants!

I recorded Welcome to Sweden – I hope it is good!

Hahaha! Brian Williams talking to Seth Meyers about “The Bachelorette”… I don’t think there’s anything better than that.

I really hope you and Linda Holmes, from the NPR blog Monkey See, know each other because I think you could be best friends. But hey, no hanging out without me, okay?

I owned the VHS version of That Thing You Do until I could find a DVD. Still love that movie! Who doesn’t wish they had said that line about wasting thousands of kisses on a boy who wasn’t worthy?!
