Friday Distractions -- Random Links & Recipes Bookmarked

Ready for the weekend? I always am... 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.

This bunny is SO cute. Our bunny would never permit this and that makes me a little sad.

Spotify is coming to the US. I signed up for access already... If you like music, you should consider doing so as well. Jeff showed this to me a few years ago and we were able to listen to full, new albums for artists for free. (via Lara)

Are you a have-runner? I am! I miss that feeling. I've had a nagging pain in my left hip flexor area for quite a while now in spite of taking a month-long break from 95% of exercise. I suppose it is time to suck it up and pay the money to get that checked out. Sigh. (via Sarah)

An ocean wave made of maps... This is in the same vein as Liesl Pfeffer's travel art that I highlighted a few weeks ago.

iPhone/iPod touch users there is now an app to create your own animated gifs! Neat. (via Courtney)

A thought-provoking Op-Ed on our choice to lose our privacy. I will never think of supermarket loyalty programs in quite the same way. (also via Courtney)

Greek Nachos at Not Without Salt

 Lighthouse in Maine, July 2008

I left for Cape Cod this morning! If you leave a comment, I'll get back to you but it might be a bit. Spending time at the beach with friends and celebrating Rachel and Peter's wedding is the perfect way to reward myself for having finished Microbio. Regardless of how the class turned out.


  1. Those Greek nachos look really good. I will keep that idea in my file. Love the lighthouse. Makes me think of Nova Scotia!

  2. I thought they looked perfect for warm weather! Rather light and delicious...
