I started shifting into break mode with a really nice, if somewhat windy, rollerblade. It was my first outing of the season in long sleeves. We may even need to turn our heater on before too long.

SIGH. There goes another chunk of money.

Ezra Klein's interview with Elizabeth Currid-Halkett about class and group membership was really good and thought-provoking.

Happy weekend, everyone! I won't be posting links next week because of the holiday. I don't know if I'll manage to post something else since I won't be working. We'll see!
