clever cards

I know these are all over but the messages are just so cute and clever. I appreciate a good "just because" card.

taking to heart

I read the following advice on BrownChickenBrownCow a few days ago and it has stayed with me.

"Only own clothes in which you’d feel comfortable letting your partner pack for a surprise getaway without your input." 

I'm definitely the type to have a stash of clothes in the back of my closet that I don't wear but I can't bring myself to get rid of. I think this is the kick in the butt I needed to finally take a good hard look at the things I don't wear and edit my wardrobe.

ted talk: the birth of a word

I've been really obsessed with TED Talks lately. This was partially brought on by my need to find multiple research topics lately, and further fueled by meeting TED's creator Richard Saul Wurman. In my browsing I came across this great talk by Deb Roy who charted his son's language development. About 80% of this video went over my head but the overall idea just floored me, particularly his 40 second clip that traced the evolution of his son's vocalization of the word water.
