Weekend Link Love – 02.21.2011

I can’t believe it’s February 21st already! A year ago today…

  • Perfect Sunday. Quote: “And now I will either go get frozen yogurt or relax in front of the olympics. I don’t know how much I like the olympics. It seems like everyone in them has serious food or body issues. Did you notice that?”

I think that is about it. I am going to try to do more posts this week; I have been swamped with work, and then I had an IBS-C attack last week (Weds/Thurs) that I think was due to stress. I’m chilling out now, but it’s something I gotta work on. Thank goodness for days off: happy President’s Day! Did you know that Presidents’ Day is actually celebrating Washington’s birthday? It’s okay to spell it Presidents Day, President’s Day, Presidents’ Day, or just Washington’s Birthday. His actual birthday was February 22 (born 1732 – he died December 14, 1799 at age 67) but we celebrate his birthday on the third Monday in February so we can have a long weekend (see the Uniform Monday Holiday Act – oh, the important issues our elected officials debate over). It will never actually land on his real birthday because of this – it’ll always be between February 15 – 21. The day was first celebrated in 1880.

What did you do with your holiday weekend?

My sister came to visit (she did a guest post for me once on running) and so did Bobby’s and my good friend from college. Julia is a vegetarian/vegan and our friend is vegetarian so we went to a bunch of good places. Friday night was Gobo with Julia, then Saturday afternoon we went to Brooklyn (Williamsburg) for Urban Rustic, then Saturday night was Good Health Cafe. Sunday they both left and Bobby and I had a non-vegetarian cheat day (we have decided to take one day every other week or so and eat meat – but we find that when we do this the meat is strangely disappointing). We went to China Fun for dinner and our “cheat” was beef fried rice (we only eat beef for both health and humane reasons – read Eating Animals if you are confused by that). During the day on Sunday we went to Ikea in Brooklyn and took a really cool water taxi.
