Happy Friday, friends! What are you doing this weekend? I’m packing up and heading north to see ACS and visit my college roomie, Mel, and her husband, Joe. Mel and I lived together for two-and-a-half years; she is one of the best people I know and one of my closest friends. We always have a blast when we get together and I cannot wait to see her.
What about you? What are you up to? If you’re in the mood for some weekend reading, here’re some links that might strike your fancy:
This is a bit of a cheat, because it’s actually a collection of articles, but The New York Times Magazine’s “Inspiration Issue” is cool. Of particular note: “Junot Diaz Hates Writing Short Stories” (Diaz is one of my favorite authors; his The Brief Wondrous Life of Oscar Wao is one of the best books I’ve ever read). (The New York Times)
Photo above: My cat Oscar. Would also like to copy what he’s doing quite a bit this weekend. Would not like to copy the fact that he rubbed his head in something green last night and now has highlighter-green face fur. Alas.
