Weekend Links

“A lady, without a family, was the very best preserver of furniture in the world.”
― Jane Austen, Persuasion

Happy weekend, ducklings! At work this week we got our third big proposal out, quite possibly the biggest one to date, and on the home front we trying to shop for ideas for real, grown up furniture for the first time in our lives. We’re 30. Yikes. Lessons learned thus far can broadly be summarized as follows: we have excellent taste, and we have no money.

Here are your links, rapid fire this weekend, and let me know what you’re getting up to in the comments.

Tumblr find of the week.

Caitlin (the one in China, not the one in New York) made her own 101 in 1001 list, go check it out here.

Spirit animal.

A very important quiz.

Digging into the history of maroon communities in the Dismal Swamp.

Strong piece about a complicated topic.

Stacy London speaks wisdom.

  1. PRESSURE IS ON…trying to think of 101 things I really want to do. That’s less the challenge than…3 years? I can barely plan a month ahead these days.

    My quiz led to…imagine (my fave monarch) Queen E I. BOW, minions! 🙂

    Fascinating to learn that Curtis had $$$$$$ backing him. Still seeking my personal Medici.

    That hedgehog.

    The Great Dismal Swamp is real — have driven across it, in the rain. Unforgettable.
