Our GOFOURTH Diaries
America: Back-to-Back World War Champs, home of the free, the brave, and marriage equality. We love our country something fierce and what better way to celebrate than with a grand old sale?

+ Giving the fantastic Toddy cold-brew coffee thingy a real workout, for the third summer in a row. $35 well-spent, y’all.
+ Dying over NPR’s playlist of all of the songs of the summer since 1962. Finally, an excuse to listen to “The Boy Is Mine.”
+ Learning so much about avocados from Food52—including that fact that sailors spread them on toast way back in the 1700s.
+ Ogling all of the amazing lighting by the Vegas-based co. Onefortythree—ideal for our Of a Kind office makeover?!
+ Signing up for so-brilliant We Think Alone, Miranda July’s latest project in which you receive emails culled from the “sent” folders of folks like Lena Dunham and Kareem Abdul Jabbar.
+ Discovering the wonder of cheese paper via Formaticum’s handy little storage bags—game-changers for cheese lovers who stock their fridges with the good stuff.
+ Scrolling for ages through National Geographic’s tumblr, full of amazing pics from throughout the decades.
+ Realizing Wendy Davis wasn’t the only one wearing sneakers with a suit last week.
+ Getting psyched at the prospect of a swimming pool that sits in the East River acting like a giant Brita filter.
