Friday Flotsam


Who’s your favorite night show host?

OR RATHER – who’s your biggest night show host crush?

And if you say Jimmy Kimmel we definitely have work to do.

I’ll start! CONAN. Yes, Conan O’Brien. My crushness knows no end with Conan. He’s tall, he’s self deprecating, his nasally voice is perfect, he’s stylish (but he is though!), his hair could start its own Facebook page. I even think he’s cute! I seriously do. Have you ever seen the episode of Conan Without Borders, when he takes his producer Jordan Schlansky to Italy? IT IS EVERYTHING. We’ve watched it so many times and I cry each and every time. You MUST watch it.

I mean sure, Seth Meyers has that adorable smirky grin, and Fallon is painfully funny and creative. Corden could not be more snuggly. But Conan just does it for me. He’s the end all.

Who’s yours? And like, really break it down for me. What else do you have going on this morning?

Oh! I was the guest on the She Founders podcast this week, if you’re interested in listening. It’s almost two hours long though, so you can fold laundry or sweep the floors while you listen. If y’awnt. I’m breezy!

I think running a podcast would be so cool. I have no idea how or with who (whom? who? whom?), but I’d love to do that. Is it even called running a podcast? It’s like the Jerry Seinfeld bit about on the train, off the train, in the cab, out of the cab, take an uber. Does one run a podcast?

I have no idea.

Oh! I bought the shower cap. The Kitsch shower cap. And I love it.

One question: do you stick your head under the running water now that you have the hair protection? Just to hear and feel the water on your head? It’s sort of like the vaccine. You’re safe now. You can go places and hug people. Do you stick your head under the shower head? I will say, I did and it’s loud. It’s very loud. And it’s loud even when your ears are tucked underneath it because the sound is only amplified in your lil’ plastic helmet. But it’s also sort of exciting. That sound. It’s a weird hammering in your ears and you know your hair is going to look the exact same post shower. How thrilling is that!

Clearly I need friends.

You guys, what is Eurovision? Learn me.

Weekend plans?

I’m finishing Beach Read this morning and starting Invisible Girl tonight! A ritual Friday lunch at French Market, an outdoor garden launch party at Golden and Pine, maybe a run if all this rain will freaking chill out for ONE EFFING DAY. I’m fine.

Also, this is the last official Friday of first grade for Will and Nat. This time next week it’s officially summer break. How on earth did that happen? I mean my peonies haven’t even BLOOMED YET because it’s been theeee chilliest and wettest spring on earth, and we’re looking at summer next weekend? Mama Nay Nay is drunk.

From this week, in case you missed it!::: a quick Soba Noodle Salad for those nights when you need to slurp dinner in under 20 minutes. And then a Creamy Chicken Enchilada Pasta Bake for those nights when you’re really craving a snuggly mouth hug. Which might be tonight. Or right now.

Okay, tell me your night show host crush and what you’re eating this weekend! byeeeeee.

    Does Johnny Carson count? Because I loved him (showing my age). I loved the way he & Ed McMahon would riff off each other and sometimes their silliness and laughter was just so contagious. I'm not really into any of the late night guys these days. Mostly because I can't stay up that late! Ha!

    Trevor Noah. Smart, funny and brings a different perspective being from South Africa. Plus he is so stinkin' adorable. Not as cute, is the DryBar shower cap, but I am on my 3rd one. Keeps hair dry, has a soft lining, not mashed and can wash in the clean machine. Have a great weekend!

    Trevor Noah for sure! He’s getting even cuter with age.

    I thought I was the only one with a Conan crush!

    I am Team Conan all the way. I used to stay up so late watching him when he was on after the Tonight Show. Have you seen the time he takes Ice Cube and Kevin Hart out for a Ride Along? He is so smart and the things he comes up with on the spot are so hilarious. I loved when he and Andy would take his desk out for a drive too.

    I love Conan! He's the only late night show that I keep up with their content. His podcast is a blast too. The way he is able to riff with people is the best.

    Ohhhh Team Conan 100%! Do you listen to his podcast? He runs a podcast! It’s delightful!

    I love Conan! He *hosts* a podcast (?) and it’s a fun listen for cleaning or running. You should start a podcast! It could be a chatty version of Friday flotsam. Have your girlfriends on with you!

    Fallon will forever be my favorite...on a trip to NYC in 2017 we got to attend a show taping "reherasal", where they do the intro and the desk chat...and the writers sit in the guest chairs and gauge audience reactions to jokes, etc...and it sold me on Fallon. He was so relatable, silly, and SMART. I have the Kitsch shower cap for roughly a year and the plastic lining that keeps it close to your head is tearing apart?! Quality these days is annoying...even from highly reviewed products. I still wear mine, and it holds up decently, but still annoyed. I hope yours lasts longer Bev!
