Links: Better Than Chocolate?

by Ruby on March 30, 2010

Hopefully links are better than chocolate, since my office is swimming in Starbursts and chocolate eggs, and I cannot resist. Alison, Jen and I have been battling them all day, and all I can think about is the fact that I want more. One deliciously melt-in-your-mouth chocolate egg is never enough (although 6 might be pushing it… and when you can’t remember how many you’ve had today, it is probably time to stop). What makes it worse is that the bag never seems to get less full.

So it is time for a test. Can interesting reading keep me from darting across the room again, in search of yet another delectable chocolate bite? We shall see.

  • Well, this is a good start. For all of you Pasadena/LA residents, take a look at this story from The LAist. Four food trucks are getting together to mash-up their menus to the sounds of live DJs and a photobooth: Genius? Perhaps. Free, except for the cost of food.
  • One of my favorite authors ever discovered through high school (via The Handmaid’s Tale), Margaret Atwood, blogs about joining Twitter. I follow her now, I just wish her handle was margaret@wood (is that possible? Allowed? I don’t care, it is genius).
  • Although this post is several days old, now (an eternity in the online world, I know), and I have never quite had the courage to tackle read the book in question, I really enjoyed Kevin Hartnett’s essay about the effects of reading War and Peace on his everyday life. A lot of his points reminded me of why I love reading, albeit usually on a smaller scale.
  • Lat but not least, today is the last day to vote for One Book, One Twitter (#1b1t). Word is they’re going to announce the book in May. Prepare yourselves!

Well, that about half worked. So no, links are not better than chocolate. But they’re still pretty good!
