Things that make me go "hmm."


Happy St. Patrick's Day, everyone! Here are some interesting links I found this week:

If you learn one thing today, let it be this: It’s St. Paddy’s Day, not St. Patty’s Day!

Check out this magical combination of two of my favorite things: geography and college basketball. This game is addicting!

Types of books found in a bookstore. (If you like Letters or Note, you will love Lists of Note!)

In case you were wondering what the heck the Ides of March is and why we still recognize it. 

Have you always wondered what a hipster was? Now you know. (Essay from my favorite recent addition to my Google Reader: Thought Catalog.)

Chop Suey: Culinary history’s greatest prank?

These aren't photographs; they're paintings. Say what?!

Talk about a poor sport. What sort of example are we setting for our children? Sheesh.

What are you up to this weekend? Any fun plans for the holiday? I'm spending the weekend in Vail, Colorado, on a staff retreat. I can't wait to share my pictures with you when I get back! 

P.S. — In case you missed it yesterday, check out my outfit inspiration for St. Paddy's festivities.

Did you see the letter from Steinbeck to his son from Letters of Note featured on Cup of Jo a few days ago? CSI was down at the Rec yesterday, so I had a chance to catch up on my Google Reader and was almost crying over how sweet it was. Hope you had fun in Vail!

I did see that! It was about falling in love, right? How sweet. And I'm glad you were able to catch up—I have about 394 unread items right now! Haha.
