jees guys i’ve gotta tell you, Mid Week Distraction has pushed my internet combing to another level. i have a whole new respect for people who work for BuzzFeed and other mega online publications – where do they find the TIME to compile so many juicy lists? i mean, obviously they get paid for it (here’s hoping) but seriously, respect.

this week’s distraction took me a fair few hours to put together, so please enjoy the CRAP out of it!

  1. Hi Diana,
    I just wanted to say thanks for all the great links you’ve been posting! I look forward to them every week :)
    And I was so happy to see Open Toys on there – I worked at the Domaine de Boisbuchet the summer that Samuel was in the Patricia Urquiola workshop, and I got to see him work on the prototypes – so it was really cool to discover that they became an actual thing!

  2. How do you do it. Every week you bring me joy.
    I’m going to read “She Woke Up Like This” after I type this.
    The picture of the giant birdnest takes just one look to LOL.
    Yay! More Erin from The Office. Backed by Tina Fey so it must be good.
    The ‘Gurung Honey Hunters’ site is down. Booo…
    I can’t tell who she’s imitating, but Lauren O’Brien is funny, and so are the Hemingway in 15 sec vids.

  3. Dear Miss Moss, THANK YOU for this distraction, your work is much appreciated – and I enjoyed the HELL out of it!

  4. Love love LOVE. Your blog is honestly the only one that actually brings genuinely interesting things forward that haven’t been posted somewhere else! And such. Good. Taste.

    A favorite. Always.

    love from Spain
