Web Time Wasters

 

Goodness, but I love Kurt Vonnegut.  Even the assignments he gave his students were written in an engaging manner.Mind = blown. (The ridged side of the bobby pin should face down?!)

Things to eat/bake/cook: sweet potato and quinoa burgers with red onions and blue cheese, toasted pecan and blueberry couscous salad, blueberry chia seed jam.

THIS IS WHY I CAN’T HAVE A DOG. (I feel overwhelmed and anxious just watching these gifs.)

A helpful guide to which produce is in season.

Such a clever shopfront!

I loved these portraits of Cosplay enthusiasts in their homes.

Is there such a thing as a ‘cool girlfriend‘?

I don’t really want to eat this kale salad you suggested as an appetizer on our date. I mean, it’s fine. I’ll take a bite. But I’m not like “Oh, yes, let’s definitely get the kale salad. That sounds delish. Is it ramp season?” I don’t know what a ramp even is.

Holy cute. Tomboy flowergirl outfits. (Sidenote: as a child, I named my dresses and refused to wear turtlenecks because they were “for boys.”  As an adult, I’ve never learned how to walk in heels.)

Want to know which images are the most popular on your various social media platforms – right this second?

Isn’t this house tour lovely?  (I love that cat pillow!)

Do dudes care about ‘having it all‘?

And I was thinking about this a while ago, and I wonder if I never think about having it all because I’m a white dude, so I pretty much get what I want. I think maybe the question of having it all is an intrinsically sexist question. I realize I’m not the first person to ask this.
I mean, I’m in a happy relationship, we split the domestic duties, I have a job that I love. I guess I’m having it all. Hooray! (But I’m not interested in procreating, so maybe I’m not having it all. Booooo.)An interesting cultural division of America (I’d have to agree.)

Let’s live in a Cyndi Lauper video, shall we?

My inner 15-year-old realllllly wants this.

A great idea for creating your own big, statement art.

I liked Henry Rollins’ thoughts on ‘selling out.’ 

Studies now show that yelling at kids has the same negative effects as spanking.

Kids of parents who yelled or used “harsh verbal discipline,” especially with cursing or insults, were, no duh, “more likely to be depressed or have behavior problems.”

 

Kicker #1: It didn’t make them stop doing whatever they were doing that was so bad in the first place.


Kicker #2: It didn’t even matter if the household was otherwise “generally warm and loving.”


So the whole “doing it for their own good” thing doesn’t really cut it, Yelly Pants.

hahaha the dog gif! My dog is a lot bigger than that and she still follows me around like such, hilarious. I'm still dubious about the shift in the bobby pin universe…we shall see *shifty eyes*

I recently made that discovery about bobby pins and was mind blown, too! It's crazy the things like that which we can still be learning once we've grown up and think we have at least some aspects all figured out!
