Weekend fun

A pile of backlogged goofy links to keep you busy over the weekend (or on a dull Friday afternoon):
  • Totally transfixing: a time-lapse movie of a drawing taking form. It actually goes through several incarnations, so don't cut it short.
    (via boing boing)

  • Lonely at your desk? Try visiting this cyber-kitty -- try playing with it now and then, and be sure you have the sound on...
    (via Bitch, PhD)

  • More animal fun, of an even less literal (but more literary) type: typography zoo. pretty spiff.
    (via old pal GHW)

  • The Onion does its classic job of skewering public perception in this week's piece in which a guy finds beer with Bush not all he'd imagined...

  • Coffee can be good for you! or at least
    1. it doesn't raise your blood pressure as previously thought (although Coke does)[may require Salon pass] and
    2. is a great source of antioxidants (the study recommends decaf, but after the above result, forget it!).

  • Even better, chocolate could have positive medicinal properties:
    1. good for your heart, and
    2. source of neutraceuticals for many ills.

  • And finally, for those days when you can't stay awake (or off the web) at your desk, the work blind, a sort of cubicle equivalent of those sunglasses with open eyes painted on them...

The time-lapse drawing was cool. I sent it to Karen.
