Friday List!

Sarah's List:

I love the line from this article: "When I imagined my journalism career, I never pictured myself standing shirtless in a unisex bathroom in the White House." America, you're so, so, so behind when it comes to making it easier for mamas. Remember this?


Check out this beautiful and totally bizarre Namibian slide show/fashion show. Colonization at it's best. Or weirdest. You can get the book here.

JacksonPollock.org. Pretty sneaky and totally addicting.

Be sure to check out this new blog: How Babies Work: Emergent Thinking About Emergent Humans. At a party last night, I really resisted the temptation to bring up this post about animals as breast pumps.

If you are between the ages of 25 to 35, I dare you not to smirk. So true, thank you Facebook. Obnoxious Friend Won't Stop Attaining Major Life Milestones.

Seriously, cool it with the achievements. From here.

Floor plans of all your fake friends' apartments.

In the age of vanity sizing and internet shopping, this tool seems ridiculously practical. Find out What Size Am I according to each store.

Haunting vintage photography.  I used to spend hours with dusty copies of my grandparents' ancient National Geographic...

Still fascinated with ultra-humans.

Making plans for this year's Kima Mbangu 5K Run/Walk with friends from Les Fonds pour les Femmes Congolaises again this year.  Congolese women working for Congolese women.



Ten Years in Ten Numbers.

And if you like numbers...  Numbers on the DRC.

Pili-pili eggs by J. Humphrey.
  

Dreaming of Istanbul.  Layover Summer 2013, here we come.

Gorgeous photo from Adventures of a Good Man.

A dreamy blog talking about a dreamy skincare line.  Sigh.

And. Giving my family of four hope that one day we might be able to squeeze stylishly into a teeny-tiny apartment.

Apartment tour a la Cup of Jo.


Finally.  On repeat at my house:  Low & Lucinda Williams.  Both really, truly incredible new albums. Especially the Kitchen Tapes and all those tracks by Mimi.  Go listen right now.
