Digest 11/06/09

Honest to goodness, I’m loving the end of Daylight Savings.  Faced with the end of the year crunch in both school and work—and the need to be super efficient so as to negotiate the upswing in holiday season parties—I’m finding the early darkening to be delightfully work-inducing. At home and at work, I’ve got a nice workspace by a window, plenty of elbow room, and a bright, low-hanging table lamp.  Jethro Tull and Carla Bruni radio take turns on Pandora.  I’m bunkered in by ever-growing assemblage of coffee mugs, nearly-finished pints of tea, and a tumbler with the sweet-smelling residue of Cutty Sark. Yes, it’s quite cozy.

Get cozy and read these:

No need to reinvent the wheel. During the week, I collect my five favorite articles and then post them Friday. Look for a wide spectrum, and I welcome you to send suggestions.

1.  Now this is sad. What would Hemingway think? I hope it alarms you.

2. Another shocking event, from this week, almost 3 decades ago. So tragic, I can’t believe stuff like this happens.

3.  H1N1 is on everyone’s mind. My sister Chelsey weighs in.

4.  Chanel is all about jade this season. Gucci also goes green, in a different way.

5.  MAD MEN: Did you read this? Read this one, too. And do let me know what you think, if you get a chance.

Off to the symphony tonight…my first trip to the Kennedy Center…cheers! Courtney
