A Coffee and Some Fluff Friday

A Coffee and Some Fluff Friday

Have you ever taken an aptitude test? Or had to list your strengths/talents? I’ve never liked such things. Maybe it’s due to my ongoing “learning what it actually means to be humble” process. Plus I’m pretty stellar at downplaying what I am good at, or at simply saying I’m not really good at anything at all. It brings to mind a comment I heard recently from a co-worker: “I do cool things by association. By myself, I’m boring.” I feel like I’m talented or good at things because the people I associate with are good at them. On my own, I’m a no-talent hack. Or so I sometimes feel when tired, a bit stressed by other things, and fighting a bit of a head cold. Maybe it is a good thing I haven’t posted much here this week … (Though I am working on an idea rolling around in my head about little Christs and bridges versus platforms.)

But thankfully I made some fun/interesting discoveries this week to share with you here, which I hope you enjoy:

  1. Want to broaden your vocabulary? Then take a look at 56 Delightful Victorian Slang Terms You Should Be Using which was compiled by Erin McCarthy for Mental Floss. It’s nanty narking, y’all.
  2. If you have never viewed any film in the Star Wars franchise, you may not fully appreciate these photographs by Zahir Batin. Or maybe you will, because they are chock-full of whimsy.
  3. The first days of spring here have been far grayer than I would prefer, but Songza’s Walking on Sunshine playlist has helped brighten things up while I’m work or at home tinkering with, say, a blog post.

And I’ve spent the last half an hour looking for a fourth item, but I really need to get cracking with a couple of other things. So happy Friday, all! And thanks for reading!
