What are you up to this weekend? I am feeling very misophonic today and can’t wait for some quietttt time. I’m also looking forward to watching Hacks and cheering at the boys’ sports games. Hope you have a good one, and here are a few links from around the web…

I wrote a Mother’s Day gift guide with my favorite NYC jewelry shop. (How gorgeous is this ring?!)

A bunch of our neighbors saw Challengers this week and all loved it.

Wishlisting this perfect spring color.

The best Trader Joe’s products right now.

Ooooh, a cool matching set.

Would you attend a silent book club?

Laughing out loud while reading Adam Roberts’ tale of leaving Noma, the world’s best restaurant, halfway through the meal. “In the bathroom, I splashed cold water on my face and took some deep breaths. I didn’t feel like I was going to throw up, but I also didn’t not feel like I was going to throw up. I figured ‘mind over matter,’ and tried to will myself to feel better. I prayed that the next course would be somewhat more palatable, maybe a PB&J or a matzoh ball soup. Instead it was raw squid on grilled koji.”

The best baguette in NYC competition. (NYMag)

Omg this hat is awesome. Can you imagine giving one to all your exes?

Two more Mother’s Day gifts: moms rule and Paris.

What is chaos gardening and should we all try it?

Hahahah, a website simply for copying-and-pasting the shrug emoji. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ (Via Kottke, of course)

Today’s Big Salad issue is a book lover’s dream! Also, the pretty shoes everyone’s wearing right now.

Busted, lol.

Plus, three reader comments:

Says Wink on exciting news: “The 1986 movie with Helena Bonham Carter and Carey Elwes was my favorite teenage sob-inducer. I rented it on repeat just to lie prostrate on the rug of our TV room weeping over poor Lady Jane. I would get so worked up, my mother finally banned me from renting it. In my twenties, I visited the Tower of London just so I could see where Guildford had carved Jane’s name on the wall of his prison room. Needless to say, I cannot wait for Gemma’s revisionist take.”

Says Rachel on exciting news: “Reporting back from the land of young adult children: my 20-year-old son texted to tell me he and his twin brother had a long-delayed video chat with their high school besties — and they did ‘roses and thorns’ to reconnect. Parenting: it’s a long game!”

Says Elizabeth on would you play Bitey: “Of course I’d play Bitey! It reveals so much about the other person — do they want their mouth on me, how gentle are they, how playful are they, do they get mean, do they want to be hurt, will they really hurt me? It’s a window into how they’d be in bed and how they’d be in a relationship. The person who bites with relish is not the one for me, the one who starts gentle then bites a little harder and a little harder while making intense eye contact? Let’s find an empty closet somewhere.”
