Links: Knitting, Regé-Jean Page, & More

Workspace with computer, journal, books, coffee, and glasses.It’s Wednesday and wow, what a week already.

Let’s all take a breather with some Wednesday Links.

Have you all been watching the Olympics? I’m usually pretty neutral about it, but my roommate has been staying up or waking up at ungodly hours to watch certain events.

Do you have a favorite?

Want to know what’s next for Bridgertons‘ Regé-Jean Page? It’s a reboot of The Saint.

TONIGHT: An event that may be of interest to some of you! Debut author Margot Rood is doing an event with Veronica Roth virtually through the bookstore where I work. Her debut, Fresh is a new adult retelling of Emma set at my grad school alma matter! The event is also free and we’ll have signed copies.

Speaking of the Olympics, enjoy this wholesome image:

And then speaking of knitting, have you heard of The Drunk Knitter? It seems like a fun and wonderful resource for crafters. There’s a podcast, classes you can take, and YouTube videos.

Don’t forget to share what cool or interesting things you’ve seen, read, or listened to this week! And if you have anything you think we’d like to post on a future Wednesday Links, send it my way!

    We watch the Olympics every night. I used to hate when earlier shows would give away the results, but honestly, since 2015, I want no surprises, not even good ones. Just give me the information and I’ll handle it.

    Also will watch Regé-Jean Page in anything.

    If someone is in the mood for some light, fluffy escapism with a dash of nostalgia, might I recommend generazione 56k on Netflix? I would characterize it as a bit of Sleepless in Seattle crossed with How I Met Your Mother.
    It’s really just an Italian rom com movie plot stretched out over 8 episodes and it’s not anything super deep (boy meets again the girl who had a crush on them when they were kids, but oops he doesn’t recognize her), but it’s sweet and sentimental with some funny parts. Lots of shots of beautiful places (Procida and the Bay of Naples) and not to be shallow, but beautiful people (Daniel Spagnoletti and Cristina Cappelli among others).

    Olympic tiktok kept me interested in the olympics this year. Seeing the Olympians hang out pre and post event and watching other people watch the Olympics made me want to watch them.
    Rugby 7? Don’t really get the game at all, but I watched them after watching the US Women’s team over tiktok for a few days. (along with other olympians & commenters) Then, I just kind of kept watching.

    Me? I was all over the “Rave Horse,” aka Mopsie (his nickname) who took the interwebs by storm with his dressage freestyle.

    ^I haven’t watched any of the Olympics, but did see a clip of the rave horse. I didn’t realize at first that the music was what was actually used in the competition. It’s hard to laugh when your jaw is on the floor in amazement, but I think I managed it.

    One of my favorite sports to watch in the past was women’s indoor volleyball. LOVED it.

    I love the Olympics and am so glad that I can watch the OBS feeds of sports that NBC routinely ignores like archery in favor of endless hours of beach volleyball women’s butts.

    OMG Page will be so perfect in The Saint!

    Love watching Daley knit; he was told it would help calm his nerves and help him perform better and apparently it works. One of the things I love best about this Olympics is how countries that have never had Summer Games medals seem to be getting them left and right. Switzerland getting a swimming medal with nary a snowflake in sight. Island countries with just a few athletes getting medals. Italy and Quatar tying for Gold in high jump because they were still tied after 30 minutes of competing against each other and the judge wanted to wrap up before sundown. The first openly trans contestant placing in Weightlifting. A 12-year-old getting Gold in skateboarding. It’s been a quirky celebration of marginalized countries and people and curious circumstances influencing events. To me that’s what the Olympics are supposed to be about.
