Weekend reading: Street food, cuddling, and assholes

It’s Chinese New Year on Monday! 2012 is (going to be) the Year of the Dragon. It’ll be rung in by families setting off fireworks all night long. If you want to know why, check out this video from the cheeky folks at NMA.tv. 
Thanks Ed Chadwick!

Cuddling isn’t just necessary for health and sanity, it’s a reason to party. Let expert cuddler, engaging writer and real man Dave Johns take you on a personal journey through the history and science of cuddling.

Add a little sexy to your weekend with the incomparable, utterly inflammable Thao Nguyen. This video isn’t new, but if you haven’t heard this tune, you really ought to. Dance a little and see if you don’t feel like a million-dollar stripper.

As for me and my weekend, I’ll checking out a local winery and hosting a Chinese New Year hotpot dinner. 新年快乐!
