On occasional Fridays, I point you towards some recommended reading around the blogosphere:
a. Regardless of your politics, this is a truly inspiring – and funny! – animation explaining the origin of President Obama’s “Fired Up! Ready to Go!” slogan.
b. At the other end of the spectrum, everyone will enjoy this hilarious video of real people reacting to (real) online dating messages.
c. John Seabrook’s account of his relationship to drinking in The New Yorker is absolutely beautiful.
d. I’ve only been to Germany a handful of times, but I loved this list of German faux pas. Watch out for that red man!
e. Nathaniel Edward Davis compiles a list of things he pretends that he’s read. Allen Ginsberg. Check.
g. Finally, I was thrilled to be featured over on Sixty and Me with a guest post on five signs that you need an encore career.
Have a great weekend!
