Well…I actually really do not love these lollypops anymore…we bought them for the kids when we went to Seattle. Um…three months ago? And somehow the darn kids made them last ’til now. Nothing like two little boys loudly sucking on phallic shaped objects for hours on end.
Annnnywayyy, I do still love…
Seeing what the back of your favorite web pages would look like if you could stand behind your computer screen on this tumblog.
This excerpt from Mindy Kaling’s* book “Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me? (And Other Concerns)”, about not worrying about being popular in high school.
*You know, she’s Kelly from The Office
Katie’s packaging tips for small businesses, featured on the Freckled Nest blog. It’s so true, what she says about the packaging making a lasting impression on the client. I remember when I ordered some moleskine notebooks from The Black Apple; everything was packaged so beautifully, right down to the business cards.It meant a lot to me, as though the extra thought and work was really personalized and sweet, even though I didn’t spend a ton of money at her shop.
14 pictures of Chernobyl, then and now. What the city looks like 25 years later.
These “Where’s Waldo”-esque photos by Max&Charlotte.
AmySchmamey’s photos of the insane storms, taken from where she lives, near-ish Joplin I assume… The rainbows! The lightning! The golden sky! It’s all very surreal. Note: none of them have been altered! Here’s one that blew my mind. It’s like…WHAAAT? I’d be terrified if our sky turned that color.
The Story Behind Our Photo of Grieving Chimps by National Geographic Magazine’s Jeremy Berlin.
This really cool experiment, where, using eyeball tracker devices of some kind, some smart science dudes were able to map out where and for how long eleven people’s gazes landed on the movie There Will Be Blood. Check it out! It’s so weird how most of the people are synchronized in how their eyes move.
This post on KristinChaos’ ‘losing myself’ blog. I sure love reading about her adventures. She’s working in India, helping with cleft-lip/palate surgeries. Just awesome. After I read this post I got something in my eyes.(tears)
Thinking about these “weirdo” parents who are trying to raise gender neutral children…I’m still not sure where I stand on this issue. I’m a little more with them than Kristine is…but maybe I’m biased, as I live with two young boys who have both had super long hair, and their favorite color has been pink on and off. They’ve been called girls…when I met them I thought they were both girls honestly…and they turned out more boy-ey than anyone. Guns, real subtle crushes on Selena Gomez, the works.
These “victorian era infographics” I saw on Public School.

Kaelah Bee’s post on Danielle’s blog re: self confidence. Very well timed for me to read this, indeed.
This tiny giraffe that I wish was real so very much.
This post by Chloe Rice on her new friend “Baby Midnight”. I just love it. People are so interesting.
