The first is written by a woman named Nicole Moore. Nicole was a dorm-mate my freshman year at Williams College (woo hoo, Fayerweather!). Back then she was hi-larious and smart and a crackling live-wire of amazing energy. She's probably still all of those things. Lately I've discovered that she's also a writer with a blog called theHotness, which she describes as "a website that reflects and celebrates the individual style, passion and unique culture of young urban women. Launched in March 2000 as an ezine, theHotness has evolved into a multifaceted blog and newsletter that features music, book, art and film reviews, exclusive interviews, and style updates alongside stories on women’s health and global activism, proving that being political and grassroots can take on many forms and personalities. theHotness promotes another face of feminism that is nuanced, hip, accessible and edgy." Cool, right?
Then there's Tea Party Jesus. This website takes the words of, well, let's face it, mostly people I don't like, and puts them in the mouth of Jesus. Ouch.
Now that many of my friends have small children, how and where and when babies sleep has become one of our primary topics of conversation. So I was particularly interested in this article from Salon (courtesy of Adventures in Fertility and Mortality). FYI, some of my friends are "Cribs" and some of them are "Beds." You know who you are.
I DO love my stuff. And yet I'm constantly trying to simplify my life. So thank you, Zen Habits, for this article on that very conundrum.
My neighborhood is abuzz with controversy over a flea market that pops up every Sunday morning at the park near my house. Some people thinks it's cool, others think it's an eyesore that illegally overtakes public space. Me? I dunno where I stand. What do you think?
Finally: Laugh. Out. Loud. Real Delia linked to this piece from McSweeney's, and I had to pass it on. This font has ATTITUDE.
Now that we've laughed, I want to thank you guys again for the comments yesterday. They meant a lot, and they helped.
