What are you up to this weekend? Alex and I are trying the new-to-us restaurant Corner Delhi on Saturday night, and I’ve been stalking their beautiful menu online. (Do you ever map out your order days before?) Hope you have a good one, and here are a few links from around the web…
Anton and I watched this movie and he was GRIPPED.
TV and movies are finally celebrating older women. “If you were 45, or certainly 50 or over, these were the parts you could get: a dying patient or a meddling, horrible mother-in-law.” (New York Times)
Loved this podcast interview of Amy Poehler.
On the hunt for the moist-est banana bread. Apologies for using the word moist.
Disgustingly beautiful mold art.
Is this the sexiest neckline?
Bravo, little chess players! “I can’t really be a basketball player because I’m pretty short. But chess I can be amazing at because I have the brains.” (NYMag)
Legitimately cool travel illustrations.
Would you paint a room dark green? We are thinking about it.
Plus, two reader comments:
Says Claire on why we told our seven-year-old that the tooth fairy wasn’t real: “My son was a skeptical thinker; he wanted all the answers. By four, he knew that in our family, his dad and I were the one who did the work of Santa, the Easter bunny, the tooth fairy… I thought he got it completely, but then one night as he was falling asleep, he asked: ‘Mama, how does it work, do all the adults share one bunny costume or do you each get your own when you become a parent??’”
Says Danielle on do you and your partner have a song: “My boyfriend and I are each other’s first serious relationship after both of our divorces. Four months into our relationship, we were in Nordstrom, holding hands on the elevator, when Ray LaMontagne’s ‘You Are the Best Thing’ started playing on the speakers. We awkwardly looked at each other, and our body language shifted. After a weird, tortured silence, he finally blurted out, ‘This was my wedding song.” I looked at him, wide-eyed and completely shocked, and said, ‘THIS WAS MY WEDDING SONG, TOO!!!!’ We both immediately burst into laughter, and now, every time we hear that song, we grab each other and say, ‘IT’S OUR SONG!’ In such a weird way, now it totally is.”
