I hope everyone enjoyed a festive holiday celebration. A Merry Christmas, Frohe Weihnachten, Joyeux Noël, Feliz Navidad, Vrolijk Kerstfeest to all! Weekend Links is a collection of the interesting bits and pieces that I’ve come across on the streets and online. The weekly post is my chance to share with you a few things that I have enjoyed, in a list compiled during the weekend. I hope you enjoy them as well.
A few things I enjoyed over the last week:
1. Reading the article Why Making Dinner is a Good Idea (via something changed, image via Skånska Matupplevelser)
2. Finding two lists of the best articles and essays of 2010 (via spaceships)
3. Eating an ocean roll at The Sparrow Bakery in Bend, Oregon (image below)
4. Dancing to Sufjan Steven’s Come On! Let’s Boogie to the Elf Dance with my family on Christmas morning
5. Watching Thomas Balmes’ documentary Babies, which follows four little ones in four different countries around the world
A little late this week, but here it is! Weekend Links is a collection of the interesting bits and pieces that I’ve come across on the streets and online. The weekly post is my chance to share with you a few things that I have enjoyed, in a list compiled during the weekend. I hope you enjoy them as well.
A few things I enjoyed this week:
1. Starting to see the ‘best of 2010’ lists. Some favorites: NPR’s Best Books of 2010 and Totally Cool Pix top photos of 2010 part I and part II
2. Scoring an ‘impressive’ on the CNN cultural landmarks test. I was more pleased that I have been to six out of ten of the landmarks (Berlin Wall, Big Ben, Angkor Wat, Eiffel Tower, Alcatraz and the Collosseum in Rome) than I was at my correct answers (via @kfar53)
3. Making enough cranberry sauce for a year. This recipe is delicious over plain yoghurt (image above via here)
4. Still loving Breathe Owl Breathe and this wintery tune
5. Reminiscing about the lovely Sunday Market at Westerpark (image below)
the3six5 project. 365 days. 365 individual voices writing a collaborative diary to chronicle the year of 2010.
I just received word that I am on board for the project initiated by Len Kendall and Daniel Honigman. On May 28, I will write a 250 word entry about my experiences throughout the day. One day. One person. There are a few famous writers, comedians, TED speakers, etc. in the mix, but for the most part the journal will be crowdsourced by people who just want to write and participate.
A published book is planned, depending on the amount of funding raised. Make a donation at Kickstarter.
