Although I don’t avoid difficult subjects in this blog, I try to stay away from the political. Sometimes it is unavoidable, like when the Gulag of NH pulls its little fun with society’s most vulnerable. This week I’m including two political things I read this week because they are so full of wtf-ery. Nursing homes and libraries are now under attack. Oh… of course they are, why not?
In other parts of the Internet this week, I learned:
Facebook alerted me to March 15 being World Sleep Day. I celebrated accordingly. Mark your calendars for next year.
So much Internets, so little time. Must have more coffee. To the rescue is Alton Brown’s blog post about coffee. He suggests using about a quarter teaspoon of kosher salt added to about six tablespoons of grounds when brewing. I tried it this week. It works. Read the article for why and how. I also noticed that Alton hasn’t posted to his blog in about a year. Anyone know what’s up with that?
Do you know what the best-selling book (NY Times, fiction) was the year you were born? Do you want to? If you do, just type in your age to the webpage at wordery.com and poof, your answer and book will appear. Mine was Anatomy of a Murder, which I’ve never read. I also haven’t seen the movie. I have put both on my to-do list. In fact, I think it might be a fun goal to read each #1 book ever since 1958. (Note to self.)
Finally, also from Facebook, from I’m Not Right In the Head, was the humorous play on words that I would really, really, so really, like to be able to do during an interview. (And, yes, I’ve been asked this question many times.) MsJadeLi over on Tao Talk reminded me of the meme-inspiring Radiohead video that would be just the performance.
Best. Interview. (Dance.) Ever.
