The Week Links

It’s week’s end, here is some good stuff the internet gave to me that I thought I should share:

♠ I am beyond excited to get supplies to make my very own clouds in my house, c/o The Farm Chicks. I may even have to make some to leave at people’s doorsteps, just because I’m weird like that.

♠ I can’t even explain how many tears immediately came to my cheeks when I read this, from yesterday’s Washington Post article: “On what today would have been Bradbury’s 92nd birthday, said Michael Meyer, NASA’s lead scientists for the Mars Exploration Program, ‘In his honor, we declared the place that Curiosity touched down to be forever known as Bradbury Landing.’  ”

♠ This is Meags Fitzgerald. She just finished a trans-Atlantic photobooth expedition. She draws, she makes mail art, she has adorable glasses. I wish I could be her BFF.

♠ I just found out that despite having two folder full of squished pennies, I have a LOT to go. 🙂 (NERD ALERT)

♠ I have been trying to figure this out for a while, maybe this will help: How to Add Clickable Images to Blog Sidebars

♠ These are posters of romantic comedies, with the faces swapped. Some of them are truly alarming, but dang, Sandra Bullock looks cute with Ryan Reynolds’ hair, no?

♠ Did you know such a science went into beach towel design?

♠ What is the fastest way to learn a foreign language? Shadowing and scriptorium worked pretty well when I learned French.

♠ You can now view all of the voters nominations for Greatest Films, including Quentin Tarantino’s. I absolutely agree with Bad News Bears and His Girl Friday.

♠ The Art of Manliness (seems like every week  link to them) has a great article about the Art of Small Talk. While I am not usually fond of making small talk, as someone who deals with strangers, visitors, and tourists daily, it’s something I need to be constantly working on.

Well, that’s it for today. All I can think about is how I get to go mingle with some bats this evening! (more on this Monday, I swear.) Stay tuned for My Home Bar, where I explain how I had to make two margaritas because I *forgot* to photograph the first one.
