I’m sure most of you are already familiar with Picture is Unrelated, but it’s worth mentioning.  Looking at random and interesting pictures is a lovely way to waste a few minutes.

kisses are a better fate than wisdom

29 Jul

since feeling is first
who pays any attention 
to the syntax of things
will never wholly kiss you;
wholly to be a fool
while Spring is in the world

my blood approves,
and kisses are a better fate
than wisdom
lady i swear by all flowers. Don’t cry
–the best gesture of my brain is less than
your eyelids’ flutter which says

we are for each other: then 
laugh, leaning back in my arms
for life’s not a paragraph

And death i think is no parenthesis

–e.e. cummings

Fancy Frame

27 Jul

Newest pretty thing I made: faux frame.  I’m going to be doing a bunch of these.  Now taking orders, my friends.




Scary Babies

27 Jul

I thought the dancing baby thing was totally played after Ally McBeal (well, let’s be honest: before) ended.  But apparently Evian begs to differ.  Prepare yourself for this video.  It’s terrifying.  Babies climbing up chain link fences terrifying.

Lorin, I don’t know whether to thank you or curse you for making me aware of this.

The 100 Best Books

24 Jul

Newsweek recently posted a metalist of top ten book lists from all overy the place- libraries, magazines, Oprah- and came up with this.

I’ve decided to try and make my way through the whole list, just for kicks.  There are many books on the list I’ve read, but more that I haven’t. So I’m using a random interger generator to come up with a number 1-100 and will then read the corresponding book.

I’ve just finished my first read, To Kill A Mockingbird. Somehow I managed to make it through all my years of schooling without reading this classic.  It’s a beautiful book.  I always love stories told from a young character’s point of view, that describe complex and difficult situations with the limited language and understanding of a young person.  So far so good.
