Book trailers are a thing, and other weekend amusements.

So yeah, books have trailers now. I know that because I am au courant (which is French for “knowing the newest information and trends…eventually”) and a zeitgeist (which is German for “I’m on Twitter”).

The New Yorker posted the trailer for B.J. Novak’s (The Office) new book, “One More Thing”. Novak is a smart guy. He featured Mindy Kaling and referenced Sartre in the same trailer. So funny. I’m getting the book based on those two merits alone.

When you’ve finished being impressed with the unbelievable beauty and complexity of Mindy Kaling, here’s some more amusing links to like this weekend:

Director Adrian De Sa Garces’ unreal personal photo journal of his home town Walvis Bay, Namibia.

A vocabulary test that will tell you how many English words you know! Crucial information if you are, like me, a writer, a teacher, and a nerd.

These recipes featuring eggs that look so good I want to cry.

Just ordered this book on Amazon based purely on this intriguing blog post and some of the comments that follow. This is the first time I’ve ever bought a book that I knew nothing about.

A leather jacket I totally want.

Also, this helpful little primer gives practical suggestions for dressing your age. Maybe no leather skinnies for me after all!

Motawi’s brilliantly beautiful new additions to the Charlie Harper collection of ceramic art tiles. I’d love to redo all of my backsplashes with a few of these lovelies.

As a faithful wearer of red lipstick myself, I thought this was a good tip to avoid ring-around-the-mouth.

Have a great weekend!
