SHE SAID: Case of the Mondays?

April 19, 2011

I was in Boston yesterday watching my sister run the marathon.  It was amazing.  Between her finishing in an unbelievably great time, getting to experience the city on Marathon Monday and cheering for so long that my voice was horse and my son was telling me to be quiet, I had an unforgettable weekend.  I was also not near my computer, so I’m posting a day late.

Here is a really great article about how even though one might aspire to be well read, well listened, etc., there just isn’t enough time to digest all that is being produced.

Evian’s new ad is pretty cool.

posted … Tuesday night.

I have been so caught up with sports and watching sports and hearing about sports that I haven’t had time to watch the second episode, but Jeremy told me about this awesome new show called The Killing.  The pilot and first season were impressive and I’m looking forward to securing some couch time to watch the second episode sometime soon.  Maybe in a few months after the NHL playoffs.

After spending the week (yes, when the person you live with is putting together a pool it’s at least a week long event) talking about and watching the Masters, this Bill Simmons article was one of the best things I’ve read in a long time.  I think I would have been as impressed even if my week hadn’t revolved around the Masters.

Also, as a side note, my big sister is running the Boston Marathon Monday morning.  This Bill Simmons article about the event is also one of my favorites.

Another dating website. I think this one is a really good idea for Jeremy because it’s based on music taste.  I wonder if they have a filter for Red Sox fans.

I’m dying. I love this guy. He has started a website to get himself a wife. He’s got a great sense of humor and isn’t kidding about this – he’s already responded to me about one fabulous lady I nominated.

Oh, also, Jeremy, I have this idea for you ….

This is also a great source of enjoyment, but in an entirely different way …

Thanks, Rachel!

and here is the cover, already.

My friend Robbi posted this on facebook a few days back. I wish I were cool enough to have thought of doing this on my own.

This is a really well done piece – a guy recut Ferris Bueller’s Day Off and made a trailer with an “indie coming of age” feel.

I know I shouldn’t complain, because the weather in Florida was awesome and we went to the Honda Classic and a Red Sox spring training game … but I’ve been at JFK for hours, stranded because of weather in Vermont (2 feet of new snow) and I’m kind of wishing I had either stayed in Florida or stayed in Florida.  I found myself asking … myself, what would a stranded traveling Cyndi Lauper do?

And here is the answer:

Charlie Sheen is on fire of late.  Did you know that he published a book of poetry in the eighties?  Here is the link to some selections.

I had a conversation at dinner about how messed up Florida is, crime-wise, and that it’s one of the most dangerous places to be, as a child.  Oddly enough, I came across this link this morning.

According to The Slate, Facebook is now going to post a link on your wall if you “like” something. Awesome.  Another reason to get off Facebook.

Every once in a while I come across something online that lights up my life, even if only for a few seconds until my attention span lapses and I move on to something new and flash filled. This website was one of those rare finds that I have to share. I recommend the little blue fish. Thanks to Kate and her family for sending along.
