In the event that you find yourself eating lunch out of the vending machine at work, why not attempt some Office Snack Gourmet? I particularly like the Tom Khaa Ramen, created from a Mounds candy bar, some ketchup packets and a box of Ramen!
I’m oddly obsessed with hanging things from the ceiling, so I’m obviously all over these Boskke Sky Planters. Herbs! In Pots! Hanging upside down from your ceiling!

Can you name these movies, based only on six drawings and no movie stars?
What are your plans for Easter weekend, you guys? I’m getting a fancy, non-$13 haircut on Friday, going to a zoo-and-curry date on Saturday and meeting up with my aunt and grandma for a lovely Sunday in a little historic town on the Mississippi. I have high hopes that I will get some sort of basket and that everybody will give me the black jelly beans that they don’t want.
If you’re lucky enough to have a long weekend or are feeling overwhelmed by all the family and candy that accompanies Easter, why not sneak away and peruse these links?
* When scientist Neil deGrasse Tyson classified Pluto as a non-planet, he didn’t expect he’d get hate mail from third graders. “Some people like Pluto. If it doesn’t exist, they won’t have a favorite planet anymore. Please write back, but not in cursive. I can’t read cursive.”
* I’m alllmost finished with Operation Fancy Lady Closet (glass drawer pulls! mirrored trays! artfully displayed stuff!) and now I really want to try this DIY jewelry holder bust.
* I’m in love with the fashion blog My Edit. Nearly everything she wears is thrifted and she puts it all together in a way that is somehow stylish/sexy/grown up/bo-ho-y … which is a market I’d like to corner.
I’m taking today and tomorrow off of work to catch up with an old friend who’s in town from Oz, get a questionable haircut, eat cherries and pick the brains of other writers over many cups of coffee. You probably deserve a break from work too, right? Peruse these yummy links!
What rock have I been living under that I didn’t know about Alexa Chung? I love her accessible, mishmash style.

Happy Labor Day! In the event that you’re worn down from all that barbecuing/Corona drinking/ bonfire watching – a few links for you perusal! Have you seen the This is Home project? Designers and writers send in submissions for what home means to them. I love this one. Okay, and this one.Did you know that my girl Winona (of DaddyLikey fame) wrote an effing book?

For all you rugged travelers out there: taking freight ships is apparently a cheap-o alternative to cruises. I am so intrigued by this!
I find this list fascinating – 15 Smart Celebrities. I’m not sure how they got a hold of her IQ score, but being a smartie is just another reason that I love Shakira. I also love her because of She Wolf – now in the running for The Most Awesomely Ridiculous Music Video Ever.

I love Mika’s sweet, joyful music. And his single We Are Golden is, as per the usual, Teh Awesome. And I’m not just saying that because I, too, love dancing around in my underwear to mix tapes.
The gorgeous visuals of this Kid Cudi video and the clever split screen effect are almost cool enough to make me overlook those questionable lyrics.
This incredibly brave woman is having 100 cups of coffee with 100 different men in an attempt to find true love. That is some serious stamina.
Because it’s Friday! And, at least here in Minnesota, it’s rainy and cold and a perfect day for wasting on the internetz. Happy clicking!
