clicky clicky.

Today is a good day for the internet. Yes, other days are bad. Sometimes very bad. Look what I found already!

Super cute Parisian girl at the Sartorialist
Even her cigarette is stylish! How is that even possible? (and omg, the shoes. the shoes.)

The World's Best Candy Bars? English, of Course. [NYTimes]
It's so true. I would eat a cadbury milk bar nearly every day and still managed to lose weight while studying in London. (Again, how is that even possible? Answer: lots of walking and soup. And chocolate.)

Is My Hybrid Turning My Kids Into Eco-snobs?
[Slate]
Funny. I don't know if it's just one of those selective observation deals or what, but I feel like I see Priuses everywhere now. While reading that I also confirmed an earlier discovery that my nytimes login, taken from bugmenot, is a New York Times SELECT ACCOUNT. Take that, New York Times! I am not thwarted by your little orange icons!

Helina was just telling me about the Slate article this evening on our way home, so I'm glad to see it here, too. It's hard -- I think we should be careful not to turn our kids into jerks, but still remind them that the earth needs some TLC. But what disturbed me was the "I drive a Prius because of the statement it makes about me" part. Ick.

Well...I think with kids, they sometimes don't know how to NOT be jerks. Y'know? They'll grow out of it, hopefully.

And yeah, that's a lame reason to buy a Prius. I didn't realize they discontinued the Insight, which is totally lame...that thing gets way better mileage than the Prius.
