Friday Fragments are bits and pieces of your week that are usually brief; too short for a stand-alone post, but too good to discard. Collect humorous observations, "Heard" items, and other small gems and put them together in a Friday Fragments post. Friday Fragments are the brainchild of Mrs.4444 and you can find more at Half Past Kissin' Time.
On Thursday, we received our ballots in the mail for the Primary Elections in WA. In our state, all voting is now done by mail - no more going to the polls. The only thing I don't like about it is that I will never get a little oval shaped "I voted" sticker - I think they should send me one with the ballots.
ANYHOW, I opened it up to see what we were voting on this time around and started laughing. Please see exhibit 1: Scanned ballot (thanks Justin!). Read the highlighted entries.
WHAT IS HAPPENING WITH MY BALLOT?! First there is Goodspaceguy. Then there is Mike the Mover. Here is a screenshot of the front page of his website (click to enlarge):
I feel like a crazy person, but am also kind of excited both of these people got on my ballot.
Also on Thursday, we went out to lunch at one of my favorite places in Bellingham, The Bagelry. Then we walked around, then got ice cream at Mallard Ice Cream, a local place that makes their own ice cream and often has cool weird flavors like Yerba Mate, Earl Grey, and Lavender. Today I tasted Cookies & Kremlin, which is cookies & cream but with their version of a 'White Russian' ice cream - coffee & white chocolate - and Hibiscus Mint Leaf Ice. OMG. I almost couldn't choose they were both so good. I went with the Ice because it was weird and refreshing.
Justin and I got to go out last night to a movie, and we went and saw "Salt." I liked it! I am not always a giant fan of Angelina Jolie, but I really enjoyed watching her in this movie. It had a good twist. Also Liev Schrieber and Chiwetel Ejiofor are two of my favorite actors, so I was happy they were both in it.
I have finally started using Firefox again after the other day I had about a billion tabs open in IE and Justin said it was taking up a lot of memory. Then I remembered the plugin for Google Reader that allows it to open up the original page right in the reader. OMG, SO convenient! Now I don't HAVE to open a billion tabs because I can just click through and comment right away. So nice.
Can we talk TV for a minute? First off, this week's Psych was probably my favorite episode ever. Freddie Prinze Jr was hysterical and I think I laughed out loud about 15 times. Also, is anyone else watching So You Think You Can Dance? There were some REALLY good routines this week, choreographer Stacey Tookey was ON FIRE. Guys, I am not one to usually get all emotionally involved and cry, but I totally cried at the end of Robert & Kathryn's routine when she picked up the bag and walked away. Then Billy & Ade? Rocked it. I am having a hard time - before this Wednesday, Kent was my fav for sure. I LOVED watching his Broadway routine, I could watch him dance that style for hours. But Robert was SO good this week! And Lauren is so good! Also, I totally love Adam Shankman for his fast talking and saying "balls out" on national TV.
This video hardcore made me wish I had been at ComiCon.
Do you watch The Daily Show & The Colbert Report? We do. And love them. This week my favorite thing was Stephen Colbert interviewing Kevin Kline.

I watched the first season of The Guild online this week. It's a web series about a bunch of people who play a World of Warcraft type game together and start meeting IRL. I thoroughly enjoyed it, and am looking forward to watching more. I think Felicia Day is pretty great!
Have a wonderful weekend everyone!
