My mother came over today so that I can get some rest (but we all know the real reason she comes over is to see her precious granddaughter), but instead of doing what I was supposed to do — take a nap to relieve my body of the insomnia it has been suffering — I ended up being on my feet the entire day cooking, cleaning, and taking a trip to the Korean grocery store.
The two hours between the time that my mother left and J arrived home from work was torture. Comang was being a brat and wouldn’t stop barking. Claire was overtired and kept throwing mini tantrums. My entire body was aching, I was having painful Braxton Hicks contractions, and all I wanted to do was lie down and close my eyes…
But hey, at least our condo is the cleanest it has been in months! 😀
I still haven’t gotten any proper rest — how could I, knowing that I haven’t checked email or Google Reader for the entire day? (I know, priorities!) So here I am, skipping out on writing a quality blog post by linking to the three most interesting items on my subscribed RSS feeds today. Enjoy!
1. Scripting Language Comparisons
“An extensive side-by-side reference sheet of four scripting languages (PHP, Python, Perl, and Ruby) with which you can compare how the different languages handle variable declarations, concatenations, objects, and hundreds of other things. Great cheatsheet for learning a new language when you’re already familar with one of the others.” (via kottke.org)
2. Capturing NYC’s Day and Night in One Frame
“Photographer Stephen Wilkes has created a project called Day to Night where he merges together beautiful day and night photos of various iconic New York places seamlessly into one. How does he do it? For a minimum of 10 hours, he photographs one scene from the same perspective until he captures day to night within a single frame. His wonderful series will be on display at Chelsea’s Clamp Art Gallery in New York starting September 8 and ending October 29.” (via My Modern Met)
3. Indiana Jones World Map + Creation Video
“Artist Matt Busch has created a Lucasfilm approved world map that shows off all of the locations that Indiana Jones has made all of his archeological discoveries over the years. The map doesn’t just include his discoveries from the movies, but also includes locations visited in the novels, comic books, video games and even the Young Indiana Jones TV series.” (via Geek Tyrant)
I adore that NYC shot!
That photo of the Flatiron building is fantastic!
That photography exhibit looks awesome! I’m going to take my mother in law and aunt in law (?) when they visit in October!
