Friday Links XXIV

“So what are you doing next Friday night?”
“What have you got in mind?”
“We could try hitting each other with cars,” she suggested cheerfully.
– Josephine Angelini, Starcrossed

Just making it through the end of the week, minions, and then it’s off to London next Monday to get J. wrapped up in robes and officially done with grad school!  We’ll try to keep up with updates and pictures, but frankly you know how good the Small Dog clan is at that.  I can’t wait to be back in the city!

It makes me this happy!

In the meantime, well-beloved kittens, here are some links.  Let me know what you’ve been up to this summer!  Has it been crazy like ours, or something more mellow and serene, sitting on porches and drinking iced tea?

Huh.  I snack in my free time, but you know.  Whatever.  Show off.

Go ahead and try to be in a bad mood.  I double dog dare you.

Joanna Goddard, the fabulous blogger over at A Cup of Jo, and a former writer for Glamour magazine (among other publications) has done another work/life balance series about modern working women and motherhood.  There’s some good perspectives there, go check it out.

Dog houses fit for canine royalty.

You may have heard a bit about that  damned elusive (Pimpernel!) Higgs Boson/God Particle this week, here’s a short documentary about the search for it.

I like to think I’d last a couple days, but deep in my heart, I know that dropped into the desert I’m a goner.  Unlike this gentleman.

Here is a fabulous podcast that traces a creative lineage from Dickens to Geico.  Don’t believe me?  Check it out.

Alright, can we all just agree that these are great?

I am a good bad influence friend, ducklings, and I found you another place to spend money.  Lots of things are cute in this shop but I particularly love the Alice in Wonderland themed racks and hanger-hooks and currently covet them exceedingly.  And I’d be lying if the Napoleon key rack didn’t call to something deep and primal in my soul.

On the momentous day of July 4th, 1776 George Washington did what?

The weekly sheep.  I’m fairly positive your brain just shorted out with cuteness.

  1. Isn’t that series about motherhood and work fascinating? (Even if every one of the women featured makes a bazillion dollars and has a full-time nanny. . . )
