I made these cookies last night and they are without a doubt the best cookies I’ve ever made (and I say that as a person who has made a lot of cookies). Even without the Nutella, the chocolate chip dough is the best I’ve had. The brown butter + ratio of brown to white sugar + greek yogurt addition + multiple types of chocolate chips + refrigeration really sets it apart from any other recipe I’ve made.
Make them, you won’t be disappointed. Or, find your nearest avid baker and bribe them into making them so you can eat seventeen of them and go into a sugar coma. Either way.
(Props to Molly for sending me the recipe!)
Pacific Air released the perfect album for summer this week. I’ve been listening to their 4-song EP on repeat for months, and the full-length album is even better.
This is the Newsroom Season 2 trailer of OS designs.
I’m not entirely sure how any of us have ever gotten laid.
One of my coworkers just told four of us the story of how he stole a car when he was 16.
It went something like this:
“Yeah, my friends and were driving around in my shitty car getting stoned, and we see this car in the front yard in the neighborhood with a ‘for sale’ sign on it. I went to check to see if they left the keys in the car, and they did, so we hopped in it and drove across the border from Michigan to Indiana, went to Steak ‘n’ Shake, and returned it the same night. The owners never noticed. It wasn’t until later that I realized that I committed grand theft auto and took a stolen car across state lines.”
We’re all slackjawed and silent in awe of the stupidity, when one of my other coworkers breaks the silence with:
“Wait. Steak ‘n’ Shake. Are you telling me they have steaks AND shakes there?”
The weather in San Francisco has been unbelievable lately, so I’ve been spending a ton of time outside. I feel so lucky to live here.
I’ve recently gotten into running because I’m an idiot who hates myself and I want to revive my running playlist. Can you help? Say you can help.
This weekend was absolutely beautiful and we were dogsitting Spoon the beagle, so naturally, we took him to the beach with a bunch of friends. A+ times all around.

Been working on some personal lists lately.
My mom watches her neighbors’ dog all the time (who is a straight-up clone of our family dog who died last year) and she sent me this picture today saying that he has to wear a t-shirt now because he has a skin problem.
Anyway, none of that really matters, here’s a cute dog.

Same goes for “White History Month.”
I took [unnamed SF ride sharing service] home from work just now because I was hauling a giant box home, and right when as we got within a block of my apartment, there two Comcast vans blocking the street that I live on so we couldn’t get through.
My driver goes “hold on” and jumps out of the car to analyze the situation. He jumps back in, drives into a driveway on the right, DRIVES ON THE SIDEWALK for several feet, and comes back out from another driveway onto the street to pass the Comcast cars.
He then started singing “This Is How We Do It” while waving his hands in the air.
