What are you doing this weekend? Happy Lunar New Year, to those who celebrate! We played network code names with my parents and sister, and actually works really well. We have another match tonight! Have a good one, and here are a few links from all over the web …
A ridiculous cure for boredom.
What it feels like to be Chinese in America during COVID. (I this title.)
The thinnest house in England.
Five people describe entertainment during a pandemic.
You love the texture of this fisherman’s sweater (and the discount is 30%).
The best broccoli, of all things.
These bachelors they are really fun if you deal with such things. 😉
New movie Minari it looks beautiful.
What snow it really looks like New York.
12 Valentine’s Day gifts from Joe’s.
I love all things house hunting, so I devoured it this story about hunting houses.
Plus, three reader comments:
Danielle says I realized the perfect evening activity: “I love an Instagram account @poetryisnotaluxury to recall favorites and meet so many poets. I will forever have a mild place for Richard Brautigan:
The widow’s cry
It’s not cold enough
to go borrow firewood
from a neighbor. “
Erika says parental nostalgia: “My three children are 22, 19 and 16 years old, and if I had one wish, it would be for the doorbell to ring and for it to be their little self, who at that moment at any age stand with bags overnight packed to spend the day or two with all of us. To relive those moments (to pick up those little faces I miss!) And to think about how they would react and communicate individually and collectively – they “then” and they “now” – well, just thinking about it makes me laugh and every time you narrow down . I can only hope this will be grandparents. “
Katie says what you talk about with the people you live with: “We started holding mini TED talks on topics that one person knows a lot about and the other basically knows nothing. Latest topics:
– High school drilling team
– How to make the perfect smoothie (he used to work at Jamba Juice)
It’s really dark, but it’s interesting to think about all the things we all know and others don’t, even though he’s the person I know best!
