I had to let Briscoe off his leash in the backyard this morning so that he could play in the snow. (Yes, I take him potty on a leash in our fenced-in backyard because he still hasn’t mastered the “Come!” command and is easily distracted by all of the squirrels and bunnies. I am also convinced he will escape through the slots of the fence or underneath.)  He wore his navy sweater to keep warm and to remain visible.

Yesterday, several of my Twitter friends were conversing using strange hashtags like #marcellattheclub and #marcelleatplay. It took me a few minutes to realize they were talking about Marcel, the protagonist from the stop motion video “Marcel the Shell with Shoes On” by Dean Fleischer-Camp and SNL’s Jenny Slate.

Check it out (and make sure your speakers are on):

How can you not love a shell that wears pink sneakers, serves salad to guests from upstate, has a pet dog made of lint and truly likes himself.

I may have had a giant ice sculpture of a telephone and a bevy of dancers from MTV’s The Grind at my Bat Mitzvah bash, but Jewish Forward web editor Gabrielle Birkner had DJ Paul Rudd at hers.

Can you say “mega-jeal?”

My 13-year-old self is, like, totally disappointed. Way to drop the ball, Mom and Dad.
