What are you as much as this weekend? I needed to let you know, in case your ears had been burning, that my good friend Jason Kottke wrote a beautiful post about Cup of Jo commenters: “The truly marvelous thing about Cup of Jo is the comments. That’s right, the comments. They are always good, often great, and occasionally sublime.” I 100% agree with him, and I couldn’t love this neighborhood extra. Thank you, thanks, thanks for being right here. Hope you might have a good one, and listed here are a few hyperlinks from across the net…
The film I’m Your Man seems nice. For three weeks, for a analysis research, a scientist in Berlin should reside with a humanoid robotic designed to be the proper life associate for her.

What’s your favourite movie from the ’90s? I’d say Fargo.

Plus, two reader feedback:
Says Dana on 11 reader comments on childhood memories: “In first grade, I did a worksheet where you had to fill in the blanks in common idioms. Not many six-year-olds know the phrase ‘a stitch in time saves nine,’ so I didn’t exactly ace this assignment. The best mistake I made was: ‘Don’t count your buffalo before they’ve sat!’ I remember coming home, bereft by how badly I had done on this worksheet, and my mom assured me that it would be way too hard to count a bunch of roaming buffalo, so it was an excellent guess. And for the past 30+ years, any time someone is counting their chickens before they’ve hatched, we warn them: don’t count your buffalo before they’ve sat!”
Says Nicole on do you have a lucky meal: “Self pity pasta. During COVID, I’ve procured a habit of ordering pasta with vodka sauce, topped with a big hunk of burrata, when I’m having a bad day. Paired with a crisp Diet Coke…guaranteed to delight.”
