Jon’s Tumblr Thing-y


  1. In Which I Realize Something About Myself

    I realized tonight that I really only know how to cook from scratch without a recipe the following: Italian food (pasta al forno, pasta carbonara, fettucini alfredo, a tasty ragú, etc.) and delicious breakfast/brunch food (waffles, french toast, pancakes, Swedish pancakes luchen, omelettes which invariably turn into scrambled eggs because it’s hard to flip things, German Puffy pancakes, etc.) and the World’s Best Grilled Cheese Sandwich™ and you know what?

    I am totally OK with this.

  2. And Bourbon, Of Course

    The simple joy of dashing through sprinklers after a run.

  4. Happy Friday, everyone!

  5. “Ask Me Jon” by The Ocean Blue

    This song always makes me a bit melancholy for reasons I’ve never been able to quantify.

    But hey, my name is all over this song!

    (My middle name is “Ocean.”)

    (It’s not. It’s “Ask.”)

    (My parents were a-holes.)

    The English Beat - “Save It for Later” (Live; O.T.T.; March 27, 1982)

    Stellar.

    Want to make Jon start dancing involuntarily? Play The English Beat or an old Michael Jackson song.

    I love that they had a guy on stage playing the cello.

    Stellar, indeed.

  7. We got it at RUUM, the 11YO’s most-est favorite-est store du jour.
