Weekend Surf Picks

  • PizzaDude – This site is just too cute! I love it. Download free fonts, clip art and more. Designed by Jakob Fischer, not only a kindergarten teacher in Denmark, but obviously a very talented designer & artist as well.(See what happens when you say nice things in my guestbook?)
  • Goodbye Mommy – Jeffrey Zeldman heartbreakingly struggles and seeks closure with his mom’s condition. She’s had Alzheimers for a number of years now. I can tell you from lots of good folks I’ve had to watch endure this… You don’t know what pain is, until the woman who has brought you into the world looks at you like you’re a total stranger. And you can’t do a damn thing about it. It’s like a part of you has been erased, in the cruelest practical joke nature has yet to fling at us.

    “My Mom loved me when I was a baby. She loved me when my brother came along. She loved me when I was a teenaged drug addict. A promising college student. A hopeful young writer. An ad man. A drunk. She loved me, she loved me, she loved me. That’s what Moms do.”

    As always, I wish the very best to you and your Dad, my friend.
