Friday Finds


I know. It’s been a minute. Every year (about this time) I say I’m going to plan for how FULL May is and then each and every year I just get gobsmacked. I have a list of birthday intentions to share. I have shows and books and projects to talk about, but it’s Friday so I’m going to share my list of random internet things instead.

  1. This is my life right now.
  2. What type of friend are you?
  3. Based on my buffet food choices, I’m a magician.
  4. The pleasure of being mediocre.
  5. Very cool balloon animals.
  6. Lessons in kombucha making.
  7. I grew up in an area with a large migrant worker population and found this very interesting.
  8. What number of kids makes parents happiest?
  9. Food choices and their environmental impact.
  10. Summer vacation prepping.
  11. I think this book sounds beautiful.
  12. Just a random, interesting thing.
  13. When you have to laugh because it’s just so sad/true.
  14. Political opinion long-read.
  15. Can we design to tech to bring out the best in us?
  16. I think I’m going to adopt a noticing wall.
  17. The Case for Doing Nothing
  18. They ruined the best show ever made and yes to everything written here.

Hope you all have a wonderful weekend!!

  • Hi Kate!
    I’m glad to see a post from you 🙂 .
    I loved the middle season article—it’s SO true, and the statement about the cuteness of teenagers vs babies made me laugh. (I read it just before I had to cajole my 14-yr-old into coming out of the house with me, and, well, yeah…)
    Were you able to pick out only ONE type of friend you are? I saw bits of myself in 6 types out of 8! (I am definitely NOT a Connector or an Energizer, though.)
    Oh gosh, that noticing wall idea…I love that. I wonder if my 14-year-old is too old for it…
    Just curious—did you read GofT? Or just watch it? (With all the hype, I’m thinking I should try to read it again. I got about halfway through the first book a few years ago and gave up; maybe it’d be a good summertime read? I haven’t watched any of it, though, since we only have Netflix.)

    Have a good weekend, Kate 🙂 !

    • I definitely saw myself in more than one but not quite so many as six!! What a good friend, Marian!

      I did read GofT and preferred the shows – at least while George RR Martin was attached. They were much more condensed but the themes were still there. It started going downhill in season 5 and the last two seasons were simply AWFUL.

      And I don’t think your 14 year old is too old! I’m 41 and I think it would be fun for ME!!
