What I'm reading

Growing up on Facebook

Interesting article on what happens when you recap your life for your family and friends, and how that idea of staying connected may mean something completely different for younger generations.


Radio Lab

Podcast Alert:

It's the best science show I've heard, and they take normal questions, like 'Why do we sleep?' and answers them in very interesting and well-written ways.  It's available on iTunes and they even have an archive on this site.  Check it out, find a topic that interests you, and tell me what you think.

:) Enjoy


An ode to meatloaf

Oh, lunchtime meatloaf
even better left-over

a way to make an all crust
meatloaf - ideas?

grace in small things - 2

7.   The sun is shining today and the sky looks like a periwinkle crayon.
8.   I'm getting together with friends from grade school this saturday for dinner.
9.   I have eighty-nine podcasts on my phone waiting for me.
10. I ate breadsticks for breakfast.
11. I found a huge chunk of music I don't know yet, by artists I love.
12. I remembered my gloves today.

I listen to a lot of TAL, and I'm not sure if you've all had the pleasure... 

This episode is about sleep, and the lack thereof.  Act one is about a man whose body's lack of dopamine caused him to sleepwalk, and act out his dreams.  Fascinating.

1980 Paul Simon article 

For my mom, who's stuck at the airport/renting a car/not on a beach while she starts her vacation.
Here's hoping that tomorrow brings you the sunrise and a good book.
