Friday Round-Up ... or as much as I can muster while forcing myself from lollygagging. (But I mean seriously, 58 degrees on January 6th?!)
#1: So first off - VERY exciting - at long last Downton Abbey returns to PBS Masterpiece Classics this Sunday. It's already aired on the BBC (they kept punishing me with provactive facebook updates). At last, we get to see what happens in this Upstairs/Downstairs soap opera. And I agree with Slate: O'Brien is an excellent villain.
Between that and the new "Sherlock" in January, I have not been this excited about PBS since all of "Sesame Street" discovered Mr. Snuffleupagus was real. (Thank you, Urban Dictionary, for letting me know the #2 definition of "snuffleupagus.")
#2: The top 23 cities with the best work - life balance article came with an interesting counterpart this week - what people in EU countries find taboo for discussion. Check out where Denmark ranks in each.
