Friday Finds – June 8, 2007

Sara’s Friday Finds

– I know somebody famous! Remember when I posted in Friday Finds about hanging out with Flight of the Conchords in Edinburgh? Well, I knew they were headed for big things, and now they’re everywhere! They’ve got an HBO show that premieres next weekend. And Conchord Jemaine Clement co-stars in the film Eagle vs. Shark, which opens next week. NPR interviewed him about it yesterday. I’m sure those guys wouldn’t remember me from all of the other half-drunk redheads they met at the Fringe Festival, but I sure do remember them. They’re hilarious, and they deserve their success. Check ’em out!

Cara’s Friday Finds

– Hi-tops are here again. What style of this popular Reebok shoe did you wear in 80s? Mine were black with a white stripe on the shoelaces. In case you never owned a pair, here’s your chance. They’re back for the 25th anniversary.

– Diamonds are a WMAG’s BF… especially when they’re free.
The next time my husband wants to visit a national or state park for vacation, I’ll suggest the Crater of Diamonds State Park in Arkansas. It’s the only diamond-producing site in the country that’s open to the public. If you find a diamond, you keep the diamond! On Tuesday, a young girl found a 2.93-carat diamond along a park road. Kids, grab your shovels… we’re going digging.

The price is wrong, bitch. I mistakenly posted a couple weeks ago that Bob Barker’s last appearance on the “The Price Is Right” was May 16. Well, his real last taping of the show was this week, and it will air during its normal time on June 15. Sorry for the bad reporting!

  1. Love the link to the Reeboks! I took the quiz and came out CLASSIC houndstooth, which was exactly what I wore in the ’80s. Awesome. 🙂
