Web Time Wasters



How was your week, friends?
  I finally, finally tried Barbette's transcendent pomme frites with saffron aioli, checked out Jonathan Adler's new store (amazing!  and so out of my price range!), ran around Lake Calhoun without dying or throwing up, and workedworkedworked. 

But enough about me!  Let's talk about the interwebz!

Yes.  Calling women 'crazy' is something that has to stop.

Cute!  Bite sized brunch!

I love Target (Minnesota represent!) and want to believe the best of them.  And yet .... are all mega chains the same?

Have you ever wondered what life as a magazine style editor is like?  My friend Katie Dohman tells us!

If this video of the 1987 Crystal Light National Aerobic Championships doesn't make you grin, perhaps you need to reassess your life.

I appreciate this take on bikini wearing: just rock what you've got.


What happens if you accomplish all of your goals?

This is sad/interesting/haunting.  Indigenous tribes on India’s Andaman Islands are severely threatened.  Tourists are offering so much money to be able to see the “uncivilized people.” Protected by isolation until the stone age the most isolated tribe only made contact with the outside world in 1998.

Shuuuut uuuuppp.  A WAFFLE MAKER THAT MAKES TINY WAFFLES IN THE SHAPE OF FURNITURE.

I might actually consider wearing pastels if they always looked this cool.

Cute new legs for that ubiquitous Ikea couch!

Amazing tattoos.

It's important to remember that frustration has a place in the creative process.

  1. You always collect such varied content! I loved the article about not calling woman crazy anymore. I remember when I went through a bad break up, I kept apologizing for being "crazy" when in reality I was just reacting like any normal human being in a sucky situation.

  2. Yes to the "stop calling women crazy!" Very few actually deserve that title, and it's just harkens back to women being diagnosed with "hysteria".

    On another note, this is my new favorite web time waster: http://nothingsgonnastopmenow.com/
    I heart Balki.

  4. Shannon,
    Thanks so much!

    Liz,
    My "run" was more of an "expedited shuffle" ;)

  5. I love these posts, always so many interesting things to read.

    The article about calling women crazy is really interesting, and made me realize that I call my friends or even myself crazy all the time. I should probably stop that.

  6. Another YES to the "stop calling women crazy" article, and the Crystal Light National Aerobic Championship? Pure comedy gold.
