The Week in Travel: November 11, 2010

This was my first full week at home in ages, and I got to do all the things one dreams about while on the road: cooking elaborate meals in your own kitchen. Picking out clothing from a seemingly endless selection. Driving places and knowing exactly where you’re going. I suppose it’s not that big a deal, or that grandiose or special, but there’s something to be said about sleeping in your own bed.

And so, while I relish in being in one place for a little bit, here’s some fun stuff that I found on the internet this week …

Do not bother reading the following paragraph unless you were, at some point in time, obsessed with The Babysitters Club (seriously – it will make no sense. For those of you BSC die-hards, read on: the brilliant gal behind What Claudia Wore started her own meme – Incredulous Kristy. And my submission made it to the site. SWEET.

I … I have no words. This is pretty much the best headline ever written.

My inner child is apparently alive and well, and she giggles like a fool every time she sees a rainbow.

This is how Michael Caine speaks.

Can’t we all just get along?

Birds on wires, transcribed into music notes. The music is so hauntingly amazing, that I can only hope it’s an accident. Because if it’s intentional, then clearly birds are highly advanced creatures and their logical next step is world domination.

If you’re a fan of Legos (seriously, who isn’t?) then check out Alex Eylar’s photostream. He’s taken inspiration from movies, T.V., and his own imagination to create some terrific vignettes. His take on the creepy twins from The Shining is one of my favorites.

And speaking of Legos, I love this.

Had a healthy giggle over the Table of Condiments That Periodically Go Bad, until I saw #61. Now I’m just scared.

In 1911, Niagara Falls was so cold, you could stand on it.

This is sage advice. I hope you don’t follow it.

Alright, folks – that’s it for this week. I’ll be back on Monday with some (hopefully sort-of) exciting news.
