Al and I are heading to Philadelphia (New Jersey, actually) for Father's Day, and we'll get to accompany my sister Olivia to her very first Phillies game, which is an honor and should be great fun. I just can't wait to see her. She's such a joyous baby.
I've been painting away, so I haven't been exploring the Internet as much as I usually do, but here's a few new lands to visit:
VisuWords: I already use Dictionary.com and Thesaurus.com on a daily basis, but this may become my new favorite tool. Be warned, though: it requires a strong Internet connection. (Via StumbleUpon, which itself is a terrific tool of serendipity, like browsing in a never-ending bookstore. If you sign up, I'm radiogirl.)
Arts & Letters Daily: A collection of links to current articles of an assorted variety. I feel smarter just looking at this page, much less reading the articles.
My Drinking Bunnies: a fantastic stop-motion music video. (I don't know where I found this link, so I can't give credit; if it was you, my apologies.) The song is okay, but the construction and execution of the paper sets and characters are awe-inspiring and brilliant. (While you're in a stop-motion mood, there's the United Airlines dragon commercial. If you haven't seen it already, go watch it immediately. In fact, it's the kind of thing I think I should start every day watching.)
Poo-tique: my, oh, my. I can't believe I'm posting a link to a site that involves poo... but you just have to go check out this paper made of elephant dung. (Via Daily Candy.)
Enjoy and have a great weekend, my friends.
