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.

Warm fuzzies, kind words from a friend or stranger, never fail to make me smile. I would be delighted to find a bit of poetry grafitti sewn into clothing during my next thrifting adventure. (via The Improvised Life)

That artist's efforts made me think of Operation Beautiful, which encourages people to place post-it notes with positive messages around for people to find them. On a similar yet different note, Things We Forget places post-it reminders in public places for people to discover. (via Courtney, indirectly)

Courtney also pointed out this Firefox Add-On, ShareMeNot, which prevents third-party buttons (such as the Facebook “Like” button or the Twitter “tweet” button) embedded by sites across the Internet from tracking you until you actually click on them. They can track you, even if you have third party cookies blocked. I installed it immediately.

This sentiment rings true for me sometimes.  

If you are heading to or living in NYC, this guide to Cheap Eats in NYC (less than $10, put together by food bloggers) looks promising. (via Blondie and Brownie)

Isabella Rossellini's Green Porno series detailing the sex lives of animals is interesting and charming just as The Improvised Life noted.
