Weekend Links

“I believe that everyone else my age is an adult whereas I am merely in disguise.”
― Margaret Atwood

We had an almost uniformly lovely weekend. I did some vintage shopping, Jeff reaped the bounty of patient eBay stalking and took his “new” golf clubs out to the driving range he’s discovered right alongside the Thames, and we both did some general house tidying and food prep which resulted in a pleasantly smug, put together feeling. All in all a great success.

Here are your links, enjoy the rest of the weekend!

Investigating the hard topics.

The physics of one of the hardest moves in ballet.

Still interested in this story.

A journalist pens a thoughtful mea culpa.

FiveThirtyEight on women and the election (containing the line which made me fistpump quietly to myself, “This has been a pet peeve of mine in how the media talks about women, as if they’re simply another demographic group, like Latino voters or retirees. Women are a majority of voters, making up a roughly equal share of the electorate in every state.”).

Jenna Lyons on How To Spend It. It’s as if this piece were created just for us, kittens.

Bill Watterson and life wisdom.

And speaking of Bill Watterson, an excellent April Fool’s gift!

Hugely disappointed this exceeds my price point!

Nothing is new.
