Web Time Wasters

How was your week, guys? I went to another Book Club // Dinner Club (we read this and I brought this) and I lunched with my BFF and explored lovely Northfield, MN. Lovely!

Links!  For you!

A fascinating, long read (written by a Minnesotan) about what it’s like to attend Princeton.

My first semester at Princeton, I had four roommates, who resembled no one I’d ever known: A foppish piano prodigy with a moustache, who dreamed of writing Broadway musical comedies and spent his free hours in robe and slippers, smoking Benson & Hedges Menthol 100s and hunching, vulturelike, over his piano, plinking out show tunes about doe-eyed ingénues who’d been seduced and ruined by caddish millionaires.Wouldn’t this be the perfect dress for fall?  With these boots?

In other ‘Famous Minnesotan’ news: an examination of why Mitch Hedberg’s short, weird jokes were so funny.

An unquenchable passion for work might be a panic-stricken way of concealing the fear of a lack of passion for life itself. If you are what you do, what are you when you stop doing it and you still are?A reminder that analog is still good and useful and important.

These wood and leather iphone wallet/cases are goooorgeous!

This dress would be so, so versatile.12 quotes from comedians about work.

When things are going really well for me, I frequently think “Who am I to have everything I want?” As such, I appreciated this post on how to deal with ‘The Crack of Doom’

I love these etched apothecary bottles that you can fill with ‘acidic wit’ and ‘creative juices.’
