Missing my best buddy and mischief-making partner this week! Can’t wait to see her again soon!
– Don’t know how I missed this wonderful story about gymnasts Jen Bricker and Dominique Moceanu. Jen was born without legs and given up for adoption at birth. As a child, she pursued her passion for gymnastics and her hero was Dominique Moceanu. Turns out they shared much more than passion for the sport. You should watch this story.
– Justin Timberlake is serving as the first ever Team Ambassador for the U.S. Team at the 2012 Ryder Cup. He opened the competition, by reading a poem – a poem about golf…hmmm. Nevertheless, it will make golf a little more tolerable this weekend.
– Emerson Fry has a $2500 giveaway for her fall line – sign up here! You do not want to miss this! And if you win, I really want a few things, so hook me up!
– I freaked this week, when I caught the Husband upgrading to iOS 6. Completely freaked. Besides the obvious issues of managing a joint “cloud,” his map app no longer shows subway stations or if it is faster to walk or may steer him to a neighborhood that doesn’t exist. Here is a story about how bad iOS 6 really is. Glad to see Tim Cook apologize today for rushing a product to market that clearly wasn’t ready.
– Tonight Jay-Z opens the Barclay Center and people are standing in the rain protesting as I type. I am really enjoying all the media coverage. In this article about the food served at the arena, my new favorite term appeared – “hyper-local.” For some weird reason it cracks me up every time I think about it.
– Finally, I read a great column today about how “journalism has an originality problem, not a plagiarism problem.” Excellent conversation starter about the state of creative thinking, problem solving, and expression of ideas in this country.
I hope you all have a wonderful and hyper-local weekend watching football, golf, and having a ball, like the two crazy kids below!
Please note that the photographer was most likely ambushed. Pop shot with a real camera and real film. I am sure he didn’t have time to adjust the shutter speed. But I like it this way – I think it captures our crazy joy and silliness on a fall day!
