What We Like Right Now: Miss Ollie’s, Oat Scones, Twitter

I'm in love with the oat scones from Arizmendi Bakery (I've had them for breakfast the past three mornings in a row). With a hot cup of coffee in the morning, it's about as close as I come to nectar and ambrosia before noon on a work day. — Lenika Cruz

Luke’s already said basically everything that needs to be said about Miss Ollie’s, but I’d like to add that I went there recently and was literally moved to tears by the fried chicken. Like, WATER CAME OUT OF MY FACE UNBIDDEN BECAUSE THIS PIECE OF MEAT WAS SO GOOD. You need to go. — Ellen Cushing

This chicken made Ellen cry.


I have no idea why this Tumblr consisting solely of baguettes being used strange and creative ways is so great but it really, really is. — E.C.

There are some Twitter accounts that just deserve to have everyone following them. Here they are:

@NeinQuarterly Described as a "A Compendium of Utopian Negation," this account specializes in putting a spin of "cynical whimsy" on everything from existentialism, German philosophy, German grammar critical theory, pop culture and of course, despair. It's more fun than it sounds.

@love_that_goku This guy, whoever he is (he's fake, but who cares), LOVES Dragon Ball Z. I have never watched Dragon Ball Z in my life, and I still think this dude is hilarious. This last week, he was on the warpath against homophobia, suicide, and bulling. He recently discovered that bastion of feminine strength and beauty, Nineties supergroup TLC.

A horde of V.F.L.s (Very Funny Ladies): @juliasegal, @MelissaStetten , @KellyOxford, and tons of others I can't think of right now. — L.C.
