What are you looking forward to this week? I’m meeting up with my son’s ex-girlfriend for coffee. Is that odd? They are no longer a couple but she and I have stayed in touch. Plus, I love being around millennials and giving them crap face-to-face, which they richly deserve. (Okay, kind of kidding.) Honestly, I do believe that the secret to brain elasticity is learning from young people.
Here are my procrastination links from Friday’s post if you need a little break from your week…
- I just got cut from the last round of NYCMidnight's short story contest and am quite disappointed. Ellen shared this encouraging post with me and it cheered me greatly. Maybe you will find it helpful too.
- The inspiring work spaces of singers/songwriters/authors.
- My fellow blogger Valerie shared this photo of high tea on Instagram. Just hilarious!
- Do you collect vinyl? These ten albums are worth big bucks!
- The twelve most popular libraries in the world.
- I don't like to criticize creative people but the Kips Bay Show House bothered me. It is gaudy and awful -- a testament to a new kind of gilded age.
- Talk about a new gilded age, San Francisco has 107 millionaires per square mile. This TedTalk really moved me.
- A two-minute tribute to the comic charm of Harold Lloyd.
- Chicago-area peeps, my friend Linda at Past Basket has organized a Charity Kitchen Walk. Such a cool idea!
- I need THIS tattooed on my ass. Seriously. Thank you Lisa.
- Antiques of the Week: This collection is so delicious! Also, celebrate the better-late-than-never arrival of Spring with this set of vintage garden tools.
