At the moment, I’m fretting over which pair of shoes won’t make the cut for my trip to New York this weekend. But by the time you read this, I’ll already be there–possibly regretting my choice! I’m visiting my old college roommate/best friend/Cool Ranch Dorito partner-in-crime, and we’re going to spend some time in the city (which we’ve NEVER done together), as well as hang out in her hometown of Bay Shore on Long Island. I’m psyched to make the trip up there via Megabus. Only $26 round-trip. I don’t know why I don’t do this more often. Last time I visited Justine (the Dorito-hoarding friend in question), I drove there. Which was fun and all–driving over the Verrazano was the coolest/scariest part–but it cost around $60 one way in tolls, not including gas. So this is a no-brainer.
Anyway! I leave you with this week’s interwebz delights for now, and I’ll be back in a couple of days with updates from New York.
You know how a lot of universities have started to offer free courses online, for anyone to take? Check out this philosophy class from Yale: Death. I’m intrigued.
The overnight bag I take to John’s (and on weekend trips to New York) also doubles as my gym bag. I usually just try not to think about the fact that my sweaty stuff and clean stuff all co-habitate together. Or I could just get this genius thing.
We all know that famous photo from the end of WWII of the “kissing sailor” and nurse. The couple’s identities have been revealed, and it’s an inconvenient truth for those who view the photo as a treasured American symbol. Why? That kiss was one-sided.
Finally, for laughs: honest Facebook photo captions. The fact that they’re all pretty accurate makes it that much funnier.
