Aunt Mabel Suggests…

picture 1 2 Aunt Mabel Suggests...Ever notice that the NYTimes.com most-emailed list is slanted toward an older demographic? Maybe because only folks over a certain age—like our Aunt Mabel—still use the email tool. Here’s a quick, annotated guide to what Grandma and Grandpa thought you might be interested in from NYTimes.com …

1. For the record, we didn’t have one salad this weekend. Tomatoes here and there, in a sandwich, or as a side, but not a salad. And we spent our weekend at a rather nice beach house with a lovely family who would have happily served us one, but maybe they were resisting Bittman as much as we were. Also, for the record, this is the longest-running story ever at No. 1 for Mabel.

2. Yaaay, ladies!

3. There we are! A Topic for Maureen Dowd. Skip Gates, a cop and Obama.

4. Do you know what the last sentence that will ever be written in an newspaper? “Robot builds robot.” (Thanks, Sara.)

5. And a rather lengthy editorial on health care! A guaranteed lock.

6. Krugman.

7 . Bears! Grrrrrrrrrrrrr!

8. We didn’t even read this. The blurb is too upsetting.

9. A little fashion Web site gets more hits than Style.com!

10. Very sad story from China.

Princess Olympia of Greece and Denmark 

The only daughter of Pavlos and Marie-Chantal, the Crown Prince and Princess of Greece, has quite the Instagram presence. Her posts include front row shots from NYFW, tacos with friends at La Esquina and soft serve at Cha Cha Matcha, all for her 98,000 followers. The Parsons School of Design student is also quite the jet-setter, spending time in New York, London, Los Angeles and Hong Kong (and that's just in the last month). She pulled the ultimate royal move and was rumored to have been dating her godfather's son, Prince Harry. She is his type: blonde and aristocratic, with a major penchant for hipster, Coachella-worthy ensembles, just like his ex Cressida Bonas. The 20-year-old princess counts Hollywood elite Sofia Richie and fellow royal (and cousin) Talita von Fürstenberg as pals. Unlike other New York City college students who celebrated their birthdays dancing on tables at Greek restaurants in the East Village, Princess Olympia spent hers in Mykonos, despite not speaking a word of Greek. Her mother worked for Andy Warhol before marrying into the royal family. Yes, her whole life is all very Gossip Girl.
