Friday Fun Links: Teahouse Studio, Generosity Plans and Cookies

A list of some of the people, things, and events that inspired me, or added fun to my week.

• Finished Kathy LeMay's book The Generosity Plan, and interviewed her for the Big Vision Podcast. I'll post our conversation next week.

• Started Jane McGonigal's book, Reality is Broken: Why Games Make Us Better and How They Can Change the WorldI know next to nothing about gaming (the last game I played was probably Lady Bug on my Colecovision), so I'm finding it super interesting.  I'm looking forward to the chapters about social changey games like they have at Games for Change.

• Interviewed Kim Rosen, author of Saved by a Poem, for the Arts and Healing Podcast.  I'll post our conversation next week too.

• Ate plantains at Caña with the hubs. I meant to take a photo, but they were so yummy, I forgot (:

• Baked Chocolate Fudgy Oatmeal Cookies from Vegan Cookies Invade Your Cookie Jar to bring to lunch with friends today. 

• Went to a wonderful gathering last night at Teahouse Studio.  Chatted with all kinds of creative ladies:

Andrea Sher
Mati Rose McDonough
Maya Stein
Jennifer Hewett
Jen Lemen
Jennifer Lee
Lisa Sonora Beam
Rachel Cole
Samin Nosrat
Sherry Richert Belul
Stefanie Reneé
Tiffany Moore
Willo O'Brien

• Listened to my 1-hour Get up and Go Morning Mix on my iPod each day.  Does anyone know how I can share my mix with you now that iTunes has gotten rid of iMixes? My favorite song of the moment is an oldie by Mama Cass, "Make Your Own Kinda Music." I've posted a video of her singing it below.  Enjoy!

  1. Yumm, those vegan cookies sound good. As far as the mix goes, check out

    Happy Friday, Britt!

  2. Check out grooveshark to share your mix on the web. You can add specific songs to the mix and it's open for others to listen to.

  3. Willotoons and Avi ~ Thanks for the music sharing recommendations! I'll try to use one of them on this Friday's post.
