+ 13 punctuation marks that you never knew existed. I must admit, I totally knew a few of them. Come on, the interrobang is my favorite punctuation mark!
+ Vintage Posters from the Golden Age of Travel, 1910-1959. Simply amazing.
+ ‘Space Chronicles’: Why Exploring Space Still Matters, an NPR interview with Neil deGrasse Tyson about his new book. So good.
+ Being Nice, a user’s guide.
+ How I Stay Productive and Get Massive Amounts of Shit Done. Great article, super useful. Very David Allen-ish, so of course I love it!
+ Hey, the Oscars happened! And I watched them! I actually had a lovely time following live blogs and tweets, especially @fuggirls. Best tweet: “I don't know why everyone keeps talking about how old Plummer is. He's Capt Von F'ing Trapp and he'll RIP YOUR NAZI FLAG RIGHT IN HALF -J”. Listening to the Pop Culture Happy Hour Oscar-themed podcast beforehand also added to the enjoyment factor, especially since I had only seen 3 of the 9 nominated movies for best picture (Midnight in Paris, The Help, and The Artist). The telecast itself was made awesome by the lovely ability to fast forward it. I ended up watching it a little late, but skipping all the boring or cringe-inducing bits made the experience speedy and less yawning was had by all. Efficient television watching achieved! I’m really happy the The Artist won, since I adored it, just sad that they used spoilers in their clips. Arrrg. Anyway, it made me want to see Hugo and My Week With Marilyn! Oh, and as always, Emma Stone charms the pants off everyone. That is all.
