5 Things: Orange Hood Edition

Happy Friday! Hope you all had a great week like those of us serial typo offenders who learned that we might actually be getting an “edit” button on Twitter! What a massive relief. I can’t emphasize that enough. 🙂

Well, even if an “edit” button doesn’t quite fix the typos that you’ve experienced this week, it is Friday, dear friends. And you know that means it’s also time to set your inter-office messaging system to “away” and check out another “5 Things.” Enjoy!

This week’s episode of This American Life titled “Well Someone Had to Do SOMETHING” was particularly interesting. Some surprising and effective problem-solvers just get the job done. Dare I say that it was also inspiring?

Matt Gallagher and some fellow veterans went to Ukraine to train civilians. Matt’s account of this mission appears in Esquire. It’s a little bit of a commitment to read but the diary format and photographs are great. And an excellent reminder to continue to pray for Ukraine!

Hoodmaps.com is a hilarious site that gives the “real” (subjective, I admit) themes of local neighborhoods. You can check out Albuquerque (which is quite accurate), Edinburgh (also, accurate), and even Malaga!

The Orange Years: The Nickelodeon Story (now available on Hulu) was so much fun to watch. Sort of like a stroll down memory lane for kids of the 80s and 90s. My parents and I used to watch Danger Mouse. Then when my siblings were old enough, we were major fans of Hey, Dude! and Doug (also available on Hulu).

And check out the illuminations in this 13th-century health manual! Strange and beautiful at the same time.

Okay, that’s all for now. Have a wonderful weekend, everyone!
