I hope everybody had a great New Year’s! As for me, I spent it sick in bed. I’m forever talking about how I dislike New Year’s Eve/going out/making plans, so I think this year my body was like, “Oh yeah? Well how would you like a cold that forces you to stay in bed?!” It wasn’t a bad night, all things considered. I mean, I got to eat pizza, so, you know.
The bad news is that it’s hard to get this year off on a positive note when I’m still basically confined to bed. Oh well…we can always do Wednesday Links, right? Right!
I’m in love with this: “Nice guys” of okcupid. Nice guys. Friend zone. Bone zone. I can’t stop reading! For serious, though, these guys are the exact dudes I’ve seen in real life who refer to themselves as “nice guys.” They are always extremely conservative, controlling men who have serious issues with women.

Well, you guys already know I love Julie Klausner’s podcast, don’t you? Here’s another article explaining how great it is.
One of my favorite artists, Summer Pierre, has this great post about making your own 100 things/resolution list. “Putting it in a place that can be seen will keep it ALIVE for you and when you VISIBLY cross things off, you will want to do MORE. When in doubt remember this truism: Acting on your ideas, creates room for more ideas. This is totally TRUE!” Maybe I should revamp my birthday goals list and put it on the blog? Summer Pierre, you are always inspiring me!
I posted about Sucre a long time ago, but I finally bought their album, A Minor Bird, and I can’t stop listening to it. It’s dreamy, feminine, weird, and perfect to put on while working or writing. The song When We Were Young is especially great.

H’s fave artist is Jen Lobo, and we own 2 huge whale paintings of hers that we got at Urban Outfitters a few years ago (the image at the top of this post is one of hers!). You can buy prints from her website, and they’re all gorgeous! I’m thinking about getting some of the more girly ones to hang up. We’re just going to have an all Jen Lobo home, I guess.
In conclusion, I think this article is pretty dumb: “No Sex, Please: We’re Domestic Goddesses. I mean, maybe the reason these women don’t write about sex on their blogs is just because that’s a really personal thing to share and the internet is forever.
