this weekend i am:
enjoying a quasi three-day weekend! the current plan is to catch up with some people over breakfasts and drinks, make some headway in my new book, write a few postcards, watch this month’s documentary, and hit up the first kitsch mandi of the year on sunday afternoon. it sounds like a lot, but it’s all things i’m looking forward to!
interesting things from around the interwebs:

the funniest florida man headlines of 2015. these are hilarious.
