SHORT THINGS TO DO ON THE LONG DAYS OF SUM­MER

Elle (Canada) - - Radar -

So many hours of day­light, so lit­tle time be­tween pa­tios! Here’s our hit list of short(ish) ac­tiv­i­ties to fill the gaps on the lazi­est, hazi­est days.

21 MIN­UTES Read “Win­ter in Yalta,” a story about two mid­dle-aged women be­hav­ing badly in NYC, from Antonya Nel­son’s new collection, Funny Once. 60 MIN­UTES Reac­quaint yourself with Josh Hart­nett (and his eye­brows) in Penny Dread­ful, pre­mier­ing May 11 on Show­time. Be­cause if you’ve ever asked “What would hap­pen if Drac­ula and Dr. Franken­stein hung out?” this show has the an­swer.

53 SEC­ONDS Play one round of QuizUp, the vi­ral Tri­val Pur­suit app that’s this year’s Candy Crush.

11 MIN­UTES Scroll to the bot­tom of some­one’s In­sta­gram pro­file and do a lit­tle “deep lik­ing” (ap­pro­pri­ate for flir­ta­tion, friend­li­ness or mind games— as you please). 17 MIN­UTES (plus 10 hours of fly­ing time): Head to glo­ri­ous Vi­enna and take in a quick flick at the Vi­enna In­de­pen­dent Shorts fes­ti­val (May 23 to 29), where no fea­ture can be more than 30 min­utes long. (Bring us back a schnitzel.)

3 MIN­UTES Feel “fancy,” like Aussie rap­per Iggy Aza­lea’s so-ti­tled new sin­gle is com­mand­ing you to.
