We live in a neighborhood that's more convenient than charming. But whenever I feel a complaint coming on I remind myself of the things that make me forget about jungle of high rises surrounding me. Like how easy it is to stop at a bakery for dessert on my way home from work, then meet friends at a gourmet donut shop the next day to swap books. By the way, those conveniences factor strongly into my plans this weekend. I hope yours will be similarly sweet.
Here are some of my favorite links from the week:
- DIY quotation mark bookends. These don't look to hard but, then again, DIY is always tougher than it looks.
- Hemingwrite, a distraction-free typewriter. Sometimes I find not having distractions is even more distracting (#fomo). Know what I mean?
- Would you re-cook an unboiled egg? A real question I asked a coworker this week.
- Best noodle restaurant trademark fight of the week. Chubby Noodle vs. Fat Noodle.
