friday link love

This morning run was beautiful. #latergram

Hi friends, happy Friday, Passover, and upcoming Easter. I hope this is a good weekend for you all. We spent some time in Massachusetts with family for Passover and had our fill of brisket. Every year, around this time, I fall hard for matzo with cream cheese or salted butter, only to forget about it as soon as the holiday ends. Much like my apples and honey craze around Rosh Hashanah, this one doesn’t linger much longer past the required time frame. In any case, I’m hopeful that our farmers’ market has more than just tubers this week – spring onions, perhaps?

Wishing you all a beautiful holiday weekend ahead. See you next week! xo

According to science, beards are now over. No one in Brooklyn panic.

The one and only, spectacular Fiona Shaw, reading the Wasteland like nobody’s business.

A pretty long but interesting article on the Putin doctrine – and how the West is trying to decipher the man.

Why babies cry at night – a theory. Pretty genius if you ask me.

Well, there you have it folks: parental involvement is overrated.

The polarized partisan geography of inequality. “Of the 10 richest House districts, only two have Republican congressmen.” Might this be why Democrats are so focused on the issue?

How much does your doctor really make? How to read those confusing numbers from last week.

Valeria Lukyanova, the human Barbie doll.

A Red Sox fan falls for falls for Liverpool soccer. But I have a question for Elinor – how does Jonathan feel about the Red Sox?

    In answer to the Sox question re Jonathan: we watched the World Series together and he was most certainly rooting for Boston. But please don’t think me a wanker (he has a British accent) for having new team loyalties.⚽️ Baseball now seems very slooooowww to me. And I now call American football…”American football.”

    Elinor – baseballs is certainly slow, but definitely a ton of fun to watch live, I think. On tv – not so much. Football (american) I struggle with because of all the head injury controversy. And I love watching it but it’s definitely a conflicting feeling. Ha – wanker!
