[And, we're back! I was a bit busy last week so I ended up skipping this, but we are now back to our regularly scheduled programming. Now it's also the long weekend, so we've got plenty awesome-ness to look forward to. Need to kill some time at home while vegging out? Look no further than here.]

On Travel:

The Golden Gate Bridge is turning 75, so Chris Christensen wrote up a list with 75 facts about the structure.

Here are some tips on how to save your dough on airfare. It's a good read, and there are plenty of resources online that can help your wallet.

On Comics and Happy Endings:

A four year old child didn't want to wear a hearing aid any more, saying superheros don't wear them. His mother then contacted Marvel for help, and here's what happened.

This  Iron Man costume is pretty awesome. It's made entirely of cardboard, but definitely doesn't seem like it.

Mark Ruffalo had it a little "ruff" when he was cast as the Hulk for The Avengers, and you can read about his thoughts here. He also says "thank you." (via TheMarySue)

On Writers, Books and those involved:

It's a Little Free Library! Click here to learn a bit about them and how you might help get one installed near you.

Neil Gaiman gave a speech at University of the Arts this year to the class of 2012, and therein lies some very good advice. I'm pretty sure "Make Good Art" will be a mantra for years to come.

On Geek Accessories:

It's another day that ends with "y," so I'm sharing yet another geek charm bracelet that I think is adorable. This time around we are looking at Legend of Zelda. (via Fasionably Geek. Purchase via Torres Designs)

[That's what I've got for you today. Hope you all have a beautiful weekend!]
