Friday Links – Who Cares About the Numeral?

“Well, look on the bright side, you know, when life gives you lemons, make lemonade.”
“I’m allergic to citrus.”
“Well, look on the bright side, you know, when life gives you lemons, swell up and die.”
– Scott Adams, Dilbert

Sorry for the delay, well-beloved minions, but (as I might have mentioned) this week has been insane, and the Universe saved her biggest punch for the end.  We got some rather surprising news – J.’s start date has shifted until September.

You may imagine the series of emotional shocks we’ve weathered in the last 24 hours, our internal seismographs are shot.  We’re reeling a bit here at the Small Dog Headquarters, but already sneaky plans are formulating to combat the slings and arrows of outrageous fortune.  I’ll admit to a full half hour of hysterics, but never fear, it passed (many thanks to Peregrine, Mum and Dad).  We’re bloody but unbowed.  I’ll keep you updated.  In the meantime, and in the spirit of Just Getting On With It, here are your links.  I’m spending the weekend working on the MP and scheming to restore equilibrium, what are you up to?

I approve of modern takes on classical art.

Welcome, our future canine overlords!

There is a reason I refuse to eat these!

I’m kind of excited that Jay Z is involved with the perpetually delayed Great Gatsby film, let’s celebrate by testing your knowledge of hip hop and the Jazz Age.

Here are two NYT Magazine articles I enjoyed this week.  Tell me your thoughts!  I particularly loved the second article, but it does come with a trigger warning for sexual crime.

Downton Abbey is back, and the drama is alive and well!  Here is the Evil Overlord himself in a fun interview where we get some insight into the inspiration behind Violet, Dowager Countess of Grantham – aka, my spirit animal.

If you’re grumpy (and goodness know I am) have a look at the most cheerful thing on the planet.  Damn happiness…

Here’s the weekly sheep.  I dunno, I’m sort of getting bored with them, I think it might be time for a new creature for a new year?  What say you, minions?  Sound off in the comments!
