friday link love

Ginger and scallion egg fried rice for lunch. #leftovers #nofilter

Hi friends and happy Friday. The week just flew by, and not because it was a short week. I was buried under a pile of work crawling out only late in the evening to watch and episode or two of a show plucked from us far too soon that finally (finally!) got released last weekend! [Praise be!]

I might think I have a lot of work now, but in about a week, I’m going to be three times as busy and I’m a little anxious about it. To combat the mounting anxiety that I actually might have bitten off more than I can chew, especially in the month of June, I’ve made a deal with myself: starting Monday, I have to get myself to the gym 3 times or more or I’m going to go batty. This means 6am wake-up, which lately I’ve been unable to do. But to stay sane and balanced, I need to start working out again. Some time ago, I got busy for a few weeks, and then it got too hot to run outside, and then too cold again (really, I was just being a wuss), and then I took a few trips and clearly didn’t make exercise a priority. But enough about that. This week’s links are a shortish bunch, but it was a shortish week, so there you go. And even though this weekend isn’t as long as the last one, I hope it’s relaxing and fun for everyone. Come Sunday, I’ll be cooking for my client, so there’s that.

How vegetable oils replaced animal fats in the American diet.

The scientific 7-minute workout. I have to do a modified version of this because of my wrist surgery (and subsequent issue with putting weight on flexed wrists) but it’s a great workout and can be done anywhere. Great for anyone who is busy and/or traveling a lot.

Thank you, NPR, for this Arrested Development primer/matrix/all-around genius creation!

27 delightful, obsolete words it’s high time we revived. Bonus: owls!

Prince Rupert’s Drop on video for the very first time. Totally amazing and worth watching especially if you’re in touch with your inner science geek. [thank you, Ann!]

With social media, who needs experts? A very funny piece by my friend, Josh Gad.

Kitchen portraits – fascinating.
