Links for a week during which I wore both a down jacket and shorts.

Weeks like this make me want to go back to Portland. Stat.
Hello ladies! This week was full of poster-making for two upcoming conferences (Sackville and Berlin!), so unless you want to be regaled with stories of Adobe Illustrator, I don't have much to say. It snowed. Then it was warm. I was confused. Oh, Aaron and I have finally found a place to rent in Sweden and it has the requisite sauna and looks perfect for us. comes with a cat!

Anyways, with all the sitting at my computer I of course wasted some time on Google are some things that caught my eye this week.  Enjoy!

I just can't imagine Stephen Harper slow jamming.

This link can only be explained by the fact that I have cat costumes on the brain due to the fact that we will be cat-sitting for a year in Sweden. Does that explain it?  Maybe not. (This is for the dog lovers.)

Walk-in showers?  Yes please.

This colour is everywhere, and I want it!

Going traveling? I have used this site many times over the past few years to book accommodation, and have only had good experiences.

Anyone have 839 Euro they want to give me? It's worth it.

Talented people with waterproof cameras can take some amazing pictures.

And finally, there's been a lot of buzz around this new tv show "Girls" (and lots of comparisons to "Sex in the City").  Have you watched it?  What do you think of it?

Hope you all had a great weekend!!

Weekly links.

These are kinds of photos I take on fly fishing trips when we don't catch any fish.

Hello ladies!  Spring has finally sprung and that means that it's time to crawl out of my dark winter hole. I've always noticed that as soon as the days start getting longer, I start getting up earlier, I get into a more regular work out schedule, and I spend more time drinking beer on patios with friends. All good things!

While I'm on this roll, I wanted to start something that I've been wanting to do. I love the weekly round-ups that many bloggers do, so I'm going to try my darndest to do something similar, and try to post at least one photograph each week with the post. If anyone else feels so inclined to also do this, that would be very very cool.

Math + 90s television show = my favourite kind of joke.

I've been thinking about buying a watch and I think I'm drawn to classic styles with a twist. Like this. Or this.

Grammar wisdom.

I'm still watching this Gotye video over and over again. You've probably already heard this amazing cover, but if you haven't, you're welcome! (Update: my friend just sent me this video, making this the longest series of linked links of all time. (But it's totally worth it.))

This fish identification issue has been of great interest to me, and is often a source of internal conflict.

Would it be silly to buy a smart phone just so I could deck it out with this?

Some interesting information (and of course, amazing footage) of The Last Waltz. RIP Levon Helm.
