The scale of words and dodo birds

Here are a few interesting reads I’ve been enjoying lately:

♥ Another great entry from the Smithsonian blogs, this one about the rise and fall of the chemistry set.

♥ This interactive scale of the universe blows! my! mind! (And there’s a story in combining a human, a dodo bird, a beach ball, and a giant earthworm. Sam, I may have found your next writer’s notebook challenge!)

♥ Every day for over a year (!), this awesome third grader has chosen and dressed up as an historical figure from her book 100 Most Important Women of the 20th Century. Fashion + books + influential women = 😀 x 100

♥ I loved reading this interview with lexicographer Erin McKean, who not only is editor-in-chief for American Dictionaries at Oxford University Press, she also has a style blog over at A Dress a Day. LOVE.

  1. Challenge accepted! I’ll work it into one of the “Museum” stories for my NaNoWriMo project.
