Just found the best. bagel. place. ever.
Called Bagles & Schmear on 28th between Park & Lex. They have honey mustard tuna salad! I always ask for honey mustard on my tuna salad sandwiches…and they use h.m. instead of mayo! Amazing. This makes me incredibly happy. And this sandwich is so so good.
I have a friend visiting NYC from Milwaukee this weekend. Where should we go for dinner tonight? I’m thinking somewhere fun with great food… Last time she was here, we went to Yuca Bar. Suggestions?
Catching Fire: How Cooking Made Us Human →
krankmills:adeandabet:boutofcontext: NYT published an enticing write-up of Harvard biological anthropologist, Richard Wrangham’s, book Catching Fire: How Cooking Made Us Human. In it we learn how being “the cooking apes, the creatures of the flame” allowed fragile habilines to evolve and thrive. Along the way, Wrangham dismisses raw diets as neither optimal nor natural; focuses on how moving...

I could listen to British people all day.
Their voices are heavenly. My co-worker has two interviewing on speakerphone, and I swear it’s more relaxing than music.
NYTimes.com: Five New York City Food Festivals →
Each for a different culture and each absolutely mouthwatering, starting this Sunday.
I’ve found the perfect v-neck t-shirts. And they’re on sale for $5 each. And I got a $15 gift card in the mail for my birthday. This is by far my favorite type of mathematics.

MediaShift:QR Codes Connect Print to the Web →
I’ve been waiting for these codes to hit the U.S. since I read about them being used in Japan in PopSci more than four years ago. In a nutshell, they’re 3D barcodes that your cell phone can scan, sending info and a web link right to your phone. In Japan, they have them on magazine ads, movie posters, products at the mall, and more. It creates an incredible connection between print...
To Be of Use - Marge Piercy
The people I love the best jump into work head first without dallying in the shallows and swim off with sure strokes almost out of sight. They seem to become natives of that element, the black sleek heads of seals bouncing like half submerged balls. I love people who harness themselves, an ox to a heavy cart, who pull like water buffalo, with massive patience, who strain in the mud and the muck to...

Going to the Obliterati party tomorrow
Yay for Sweet & Vicious. I hope it’s beautiful weather.
Sheckys: Best Bars for Bathroom Sex →
I can’t believe they included Lit on this list. GROSS. I wouldn’t even pee in that bathroom, let alone do the dirty.

Worthwhile reading for anyone with a card. Sums it up pretty clearly, with bullets and all.

Some Thoughts on the Lost Art of Reading Aloud →
I really enjoy reading aloud. Its scintillating to roll each word around my mouth and so fun to light up a passage for someone with my voice alone. It is definitely a forgotten cultural gem and a practice that more people would enjoy if they thought to do it. One of the best ways to share a passion for reading, and not just for five year olds.

This is my friend Ryan’s blog: www.thisisryan.posterous.com. I just discovered it, and it’s pretty damn awesome. I’ve been tumbling for well over a year, but I’m really tempted to switch blogging platforms. I’m growing disenchanted with tumblr. I don’t feel like its system encourages the type of content I hold most highly. Plus, I’m getting really...
I think my tumblr’s going to take a major hit because of the new job. But I get summer Fridays, so it’s defintiely worth it! :)
Tumblarity down, productivity up. Also, happiness up. Hmmm. New job started today = awesome. Tonight, might be going to a White Rabbits listening party concert! Sent out my bday invite for this weekend. All in all, things are pretty rad.
Today was a great day.
Tonight’s going to be even better.
