Sorry, did I just get that Shins song stuck in your head?

You know what Shins song I'm talking about, right? It's this one:

If you had any emotional attachment to Garden State (I was 13 and living in New Jersey, shut up) I hope you're enjoying this cascade of ~*feels*~. I still maintain that Garden State and Sofia Coppola's Marie Antoinette had the best and most transformative soundtracks of the past 20 years, but I'm happy to fight you in the comments about it. 

Speaking of comments (because of course we are, did you miss the title?) and slang, you all provided two excellent new phrases for me to work into my vocabulary. 

First up, from "I Talked to My Son About My Period When He Was Four Years Old": 

Third date? Time to invite them home and bring out the fine china (just kidding, bring out the fine china whenever you want). 

And second, from "How I Went Gluten-Free and Dairy-Free Without Losing My Damn Mind": 

I guarantee in about two months you're going to see some Swedish techno duo called MTHFR (à la Alvvays, CVLTS, and STRFKR) climb out of the musical woodwork and start opening for every band you've ever loved, but in the meantime, I think we can start working on an Urban Dictionary entry. Random food allergy come out of nowhere? Mthfr gene. Did your body decide to fall apart for no reason? Mthfr gene. 

Hope everyone is having a good weekend!
