Friday Distractions -- Random Links & Recipes Bookmarked

Ready for the weekend? I always am, even more so today as I'm off to Northern VA/DC for it! To help you pass your Friday here are the highlights of what distracted me this week online, what I bookmarked that I hope to one day eat and a picture. Happy weekend!

How to Start a Gratitude Project on Tiny Buddha has reminded me that I dropped the practice of posting one thing I was grateful each day. I plan to start that again on Twitter asap. I really liked the author's choice of this Lao Tzu quote "“When you realize there is nothing lacking, the whole world belongs to you.”

I tried Mango Coconut KeVita recently and it was a delicious, healthy self-indulgence. It makes me even more interested in trying Graceful Fitness' Kefir Soda idea.

I dare you to resist laughing while watching this ridiculous video narration on The Honey Badger (via Meg and Katie)

A mini-history of gender and clothing colors. (via Jason Kottke via Courtney)

Laurie David discusses antibiotics in meat. You may have noticed I don't seem to eat much meat; that isn't an accident. This worries me and I don't have the money to buy organic. Marion Nestle briefly addressed the question "Does Factory Farming Have A Future?" and it was thought provoking.

5 free Sondre Lerche songs (love his music!)

Ramón González, a very passionate principal, works tirelessly to improve his school P.S. 233 in the Bronx.... I never have thought teaching was an easy job and this article provided additional evidence. (NY Times via Yana)
