♥ A young boy’s dying wish was to see Queen Elizabeth, but when she was unable to, Helen Mirren — currently reprising her role as the Queen in a London play — invited him to her dressing room, and spent an afternoon with him in character. Yep, tears were shed. Helen Mirren is THE BEST.
♥ Judy Blume is also awesome. (I have been lucky enough to meet her in person, twice.) This post traces her career, including censorship challenges.
♥ And this cool artist provides floor plan sketches of famous TV homes. And yes, Sam, Monica’s apartment from Friends is included.
♥ This one-day beach library set up in Bondi Beach, Sydney, is a sight to be seen! (But is it wrong that the first thought that popped into my head was, “Oh no, all that saltwater on the book pages? They’ll be ruined!” 😉 )
