The Week: March 22, 2012

Posted on

The first day of spring was on Wednesday, and Seattle’s weather almost seems to be complying with the season. Which I guess means I’m going to cave and shave my legs. Probably. Maybe. Eh … there’s a fifty-fifty chance.

You know what? I’m just gonna wait it out. If it gets warm, I can wear long pants and tank tops.

Which means, dammit, I’m gonna have to shave my underarms. Probably.

While I contemplate these difficult decisions, you enjoy these links.

I really need to start using some of these wonderful obsolete words. Spoiler: “spermologers” and “queerplungers” are not as interesting as they sound.

—————

Oh, man. Once again, The Onion hits the nail on the head, and reminds me of just how damn lucky I am that I can spend so much time on this silly little blog of mine: “Do what you love … in between work commitments.”

This video from the Anti-Defamation League is only a minute long. That doesn’t stop it from being utterly amazing. Watch it immediately.

OMG OMG OMG. 33 animals with their plush equivalents. I die from the cuteness. I DIE, PEOPLE.

My friend Pam is writing a series of letters to Canadian Astronaut Chris Hadfield. Her latest missive is nothing short of brilliant.

Just released, more of the artwork of George W. Bush.

In a rather genius ad campaign, Oreo (yes, the cookie) commissioned Portland physicist David Neevel to come up with a machine that separates the little chocolate cookies from the creamy filling, and discards the latter (which is PURE BLASPHEMY, but to each their own). Check out the video of his creation in action.

I’m a sucker for street art. Check out this collection of some of the most impressive works of 2012.

—————

I have a new favorite verb! It’s “to bard.”

—————

Strictly No Photography lets you share those photos you weren’t supposed to take in the first place (like those snapshots of Michelangelo’s David you managed to sneak in when the security guard wasn’t looking).

—————

Smithsonian Magazine just released their list of the 20 Best Small Towns in America. One of my personal favorites – Astoria, Oregon – made the list at number 5.

Seriously, is there any way I can pretend I’m wearing fur leggings with my sundresses? No? Dammit. I gotta go find my razor. Have a great weekend, folks.

P.S. – I just got back into town this week, and I’ll be on the road again in a few days, so the blog might be a *little* slow next week or the week after. But hopefully not. I’ll keep you posted.
