A Sleepy Friday’s Weekend Essentials

The combination of rain, a very painful (but much-needed) massage and a sleepless night has left me way too tired to write much. But lest I end the week without posting at all, I’ve rounded up some weekend essentials.

Read:

Trendwatching.com reports on it’s July/August trend: “Newism.” What do you think: is there anything all that new about the need for faster and newer?

Also, a bit of shameless self-promotion: a post I wrote on a separate blog was Freshly Pressed, so if you’re interested check it out.

Eat:

Hungry Hannah’s Honey Lime Baked Chicken. I had my eye on the recipe and finally made it the other night when I needed a no-fuss recipe that was still reasonably healthy. It’s so easy to make and still winds up incredibly flavorful and moist. The cayenne adds a real kick, and it’s easy to adjust the heat level to your liking.

Fast, good dinner

Watch:

The Olympics closing ceremonies on Sunday! Apparently the Spice Girls will be making an appearance, and if that doesn’t get your pulse up than you clearly aren’t a girl born between 1987 and 1991 (and also aren’t my friend).

Listen:

If you’re a fan of the xx you have to listen to their newest single, Chained. I absolutely loved Angels, and from the sound of their first few singles Coexist is going to be a good, although not revolutionary or fresh, CD.

Laugh:

Check out SceeneShoes’s hilarious assortment of hand-painted bras on Etsy. For the gamer in you, there’s the xbox 360 controller bra, but I’m partial to the Ninja Turtle motif. The Ninja Turtles and I go all the way back to my first hand-me-down TMNT bike, so they have a soft spot in my heart.

Carry Donatello wherever you go
