Did this week go by fast or WHAT? I can’t believe it’s already Friday. I have the day off, and I’m looking forward my three-day weekend. I’m secretly thrilled that there’s lots of rain the forecast for the next few days, because even though I should be outside working the garden, I actually just want to spend my time deep-cleaning the house and going gangbusters on some freelance projects that I’m really excited about.
Oh, also! I’ve dutifully answered all of your questions to the best of my ability. I apologize for my shortcomings in some of my replies, and I promise I will get working on a post about the whole non-driver thing ASAP (I had no idea there are so many of us in the same boat!).
Meanwhile, here’s some stuff I tweeted this past week…
+ The USDA’s new “food plate” is disappointing. I agree with this assessment, especially about the protein/dairy.
+ I really need to redesign my portfolio website, but until that happens, I’ve updated the existing site with some recent work.
+ Speaking of recent work, this post that Jen from Honey Kennedy wrote is pretty much the most amazing feedback a designer can hope for. Sniffle!
+ I finally bought a pair of Urbanears Medis headphones, and I love them. They’re the only in-ear headphones that don’t fall out of my (giant? shallow? dunno) earholes.
+ Really, is there any greater tragedy than a tattoo with bad kerning?
+ If you’re a grammar and spelling nerd like me, you’ll enjoy this NPR story about the new food guidelines section of the AP Stylebook. (Prepare to start spelling “french fries” with a lower-case f!)
+ I still really like the “For Like Ever” poster—ye olde standby of 2006. Maybe I’ll buy one. Not tired of seeing it after 5 years, so…
+ These wood & glass Limpid Jars from Merchant No.4 are serious porn for storage jar lovers.
+ Shilo Byrd will teach you how to make super cute summer braids with a bow around your head.
+ HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO PRINCE!!! Do yourself a favor and celebrate his 53 years of awesomeness by making your way through djbrainchild’s Swift.fm playlist.
+ This video of 9-year-old Robert Jeffrey lip-synching to Madonna’s “Vogue” in front of a green screen in the summer of 1991 is sort of the best thing ever. Enjoy!
