Fridaaaaaay! Links

13th January 2017

This long weekend is a friend’s murder-mystery birthday party where I’m a trashy nogoodnik* and Brad is a trumpet player. Later, we’re attending a birthday where the host wants us to bring items to help compile care packages for people in need. Isn’t that nice? I think so too. Also a trip to the zoo, meeting a friend’s new beau in wine country, and so much laundry. So very much. Some nice links I saved for you:

The best podcast of all is My Favorite Murder. Do you listen to this? It’s not for everyone, but it’s probably for you, because you’re here reading this website so we sometimes like the same stuff. Bonus, the hosts are two ladies! Muuuuuuurdeeeeerr.

Dear person adding monsters to thrift store paintings, let’s hang out.

Did I ever make you listen to young Adele singing Sam Cooke? Do it! Or do it again! Gah. So good.

What are these flowers?! And when can I get them at Trader Joes? The world is ripe with crazy stuff that only rich people can access, until they figure out how to make the things more portable. Bring to me the monster mums, Economy.

Oh Happy Day did a sound reference post on how to hang party decorations. Useful.

Scott Weaver spent thirty-seven years building a toothpick sculpture of San Francisco. On exhibit at the Exploratorium.

As more states legalize, weed subscription boxes are popping up everywhere. See aforementioned point regarding portability.

Elisa Chavez’s poem “Revenge.” (via Kottke)

Attending the San Francisco Women’s March like. I hope you come too.

*Note to entrepreneurs: trashynogoodnik.com is available. I’m as surprised as you.

    We called those “Football Mums” because they had them as corsages at homecoming (although some are incredibly fragile, not really the best for corsages….). I think there are dahlias that are similarly dense. Here’s a link you might enjoy. http://lovenfreshflowers.com/ten-favorite-mum-varieties-for-cutting/ with lots of pretty pictures. Here in MN potted mums are available in fall – not quite as big as the ones you shared, but REALLY prolific flowers. And they’re available at Trader Joe’s (I’m not even kidding!).
