Lundi links: Miscellaneous Monday reading material

Mondays (lundis in French) sure feel different when you've worked on Saturday and Sunday.  They're a bit less painful, because it's not like you're leaving a break to start working again - it's just a continuation.  It's easier to keep going than to stop and start.  If anyone already has their eyes on Friday, check out some of these articles/posts to give yourself a short break:

  1. I cannot believe I'm not getting any credit for sending you three of the five links. Never again!

    1. You sent me THREE of those? I really thought about adding a line below the second article to say it was thanks to Herm. But the first article I saw all over facebook from various people later that day.
