Happy Labor Day! If you’re feeling like reading something new and interesting on this lazy day, how about…

… admiring sci-fi and fantasy ladies showing off their guns and posing as Rosie the Riveter for Labor Day? My fave is Princess Leia. 🙂

… reading about how the coffee cup sleeve was invented? Did you know that the idea has been around, and patented in various forms, since the 1920s?! (The Smithsonian did.)

celebrating libraries in airports? This year marks the 75th anniversary of the Nashville International Airport, which in 1962, became the first municipal airport to include a public library. This post includes links to other notable airport libraries — how very uplifting!

… testing yourself on Friends trivia with this list of 25 fascinating facts you might not know about this TV show. (FYI, my husband and I, longtime devoted fans of Friends, knew 23 of the 25 on this list — can you guess which two factoids we didn’t know about?)
