I only have a few links this week. Some weeks the internet is full of link love nuggets and other weeks I find myself searching high and low for interesting articles.
Random Links of Love
Gena @ Choosing Raw linked to a really insightful article on HuffPo about the half lives of eating disorders. Gena does a much better job dissecting the article than I could, so I encourage you to check out her thoughts on the matter. As a recovered ED-person, I found myself nodding along with both posts, and I think anyone with an interest in mental health would find them intriguing. Liu delves into the genetic aspects of ED susceptibility and personality traits associated with the disease.
I’m sure most of you have seen the various “Sh;t XYZs Say” videos floating around lately, but just in case you haven’t, here are some of my favorites:

Bounjour again from Paris! We are here until Sunday in the wee hours of the morning. (We leave around 9ish France time which is 3am NYC time.) We’re having a lovely time and I will be sure to post more pictures soon. I just can’t stay away from blogging. I’m glad I have a hobby that is cathartic and calming and makes me feel at home even when I am halfway round the world. Anyway, today I wanted to share some things – Clare has recently been doing this meme and I thought I might try it as well this week. I always have things to tell you guys about.
- Clare is giving away a t-shirt. It ends tomorrow (6/11) at midnight.
- I am in love with cutoff jean shorts. I just saw two today – on Little Tin Soldier AND on What Would a Nerd Wear. I cannot resist any longer. I will have to pick up a pair of thrift shop jeans when I get back to the states and hack away.

Today was a nice, relaxing Sunday. We ate in for breakfast – oatmeal and eggs (same meal for each of us… except I finished Bobby’s for him). Scottish style oats (1 cup, split between us) cooked in water (2 cups) with a dash of salt. Topped with a bit of sugar. 2 eggs (each separately; 1 egg each) cooked like a pancake in peanut oil.
This afternoon we headed across the street to Enliven Body Works for a Couple’s Massage. I just wrote a review of it on Yelp. This place is great. They seem very TCM-y and they gave me the deep (and almost painful, but amazing) massage that I wanted/needed. This was our second time there and we’ll definitely be back.
