What’d you get up to this week, guys?
 I went to a bad movie party, brunched and lunched, and co-worked and zoo-went.  The usual!Links!  Here they are!


I love these!  4 Totally Weird (and crazy effective) Time Management Tips

This is the most organized travel kit I’ve ever seen.  Like, evvvvver.

I appreciate the honesty of this bag.

I’m really fascinated by this Better Life Index.  You choose the areas of your life that are important to you (community? housing? clean air?) and it’ll tell you how your country stacks up.

Welp, I guess I have to go to San Miguel de Allende now.

I’ve had two Before Sunrise experiences in my travel life.  Here’s the story of the real couple behind the movie:

Lehrhaupt was several years younger, about 20. They met in a toy shop, and ended up spending the whole night together, “from midnight until six in the morning,” “walking around, flirting, doing things you would never do now.” As in Before Sunrise, most of what they did was talk, “about art, science, film, the gamut.” Did they kiss? Yes. Did they have sex? The Times went so far as to ask Linklater in a recent interview, but he said he wants to “leave a little mystery.”Things to eat/bake/cook/drink: spaghetti with parsley pesto, strawberry jalapeno margaritas, frozen blended white russian!

This is the sexiest one-piece swimsuit I’ve seen in ages!Two (very different) songs I’ve been playing on repeat: Bounce // Song For Zula

So.much.truth here.  10 reasons you don’t have a job.
4. If you take forever to write back when an employer expresses interest, you are communicating that you are not a speedy worker or at the very least, don’t care about giving this impression.

This movie looks hilarious!

This map comparing linguistic differences throughout America is fascinating!  (For the record, I say ‘soda’ not ‘pop.’)

I think every day would be better if I started it with coffee from this mug.

I’ve been looking for the perfect kelly green hobo bag for at least three years so when I saw this, I knew it was worth the splurge. Even better?  These bags are eco-friendly, super high quality faux-leather!  No cows were harmed in the making of this handbag.

Yup.  How To Be A Dick, Because Sometimes You Have To Be
Newton’s Third Law of Motion states that for every action there is an equal and opposite reaction, so if someone is dishing out dick casserole, they should be prepared to eat a bowl of dicks in return. This is physics; there is nothing I can do about it.

Old amusement park rides, smushed into a cube?  Oddly beautiful.

Yup. Do you want to be right or do you want to be free?

Well, this is the cutest.  Sandra Bullock and Melissa McCarthy are BFFs and they interviewed each other.
Sandra: the things we’re obsessed with outside of being a mom are the same, too: construction and house renovation…. We’re kindred spirits in that world. If we had a beer den, with Barcaloungers—but our version of that—it’d be great.”
Melissa: “There’d be fabric swatches everywhere. And reclaimed wood.” Embroidered bugs have never been so beautiful!

Hope you had a great week!

in the deep South, all sodas are called cokes until you express the brand you want. for example:
do you want a coke?
sure.
what kind?
um, is there any dr. pepper/nehi/rc cola?

or if you are truly old school:
do you want a co-cola? <–that is specifically for an ice cold coca cola in a glass bottle. nothing else.

I loved Before Sunrise and Before Sunset and I can't wait for the third film! These movies make me want to travel the world and walk around unknown cities for hours…
