Lovely Links

15 05 2010
I am so very tired. These past few weeks have been hectic- getting together the school’s art show, scholarship after scholarship, senior presentations, getting ready for graduation, job hunting…. So I am off to take a nap after this, with my own cat. Enjoy the link roundup.
  • Yes, I am linking to xkcd again. Deal, because it’s amazing.
  • Are you a globetrotter? Yeah, me neither, but if we ever win the lottery, now you’ll know how to dress for whatever country you go to first.
  • Get a piece of paper, write the sentence, “She sells seashells by the seashore,” and then go here. You’ll find out all sorts of interesting things.
  • Barefoot devotees, unite!
  • I don’t think I’ve ever read anything negative about Switzerland in the news. This is possibly the best thing they’ve ever done- one more step into changing the ‘pets as property’ view our legal system holds here. I would totally be an abused animal lawyer…. 
  • I have a vague feeling I may have linked to Someone Once Told Me before, but too bad. It’s great, go (re)visit it.
  • An incredibly rare Buddhist flower bloomed in an even odder place. This flower looks as if it belongs on some blasted silvery moonscape- beautiful.

Rarely seen Buddhist Udumbara flowers, which blossom every 3,000 years, found under washing machine, Lushan Mountain, Jiangxi province, China

  • Aaaah! Monsters! In real places!!! Run!
  • Charlotte the Spider could, perhaps, use some work on her vocabulary.
  • Taking photos is fun. Having to look at photos like these is not. Be original, escape the nineties, people.
  • A-a-Achooo! Oh, god, there goes my eardrum/vertebrae/eyeball. Crap. Who knew sneezing was so dangerous?
  • This is an alphabet, but better, because it’s comprised entirely of cuddly, fluffy, adorable baby animals.
  • The eleven species that ‘win’ the Animal Kingdom Olympics.
  • Ten profound truths the author wishes she had known sooner in life.




Wear This.

5 03 2009

Wandering idly through the vast internet on my lunch break, I came across the online dress shop Courtesian Boutique. While the prices are in British pounds, it has a wide selection of really lovely dresses that could work for bridesmaids, prom goers, maybe even a very modern wedding.

Also: Check this dress. Cute, nothing super original but with some nice tulle layers… But the name is what blows this gown out of the water.

Bossy Knickers!

Yes, you heard me. This is the Bossy Knickers dress:

Hee hee. I would wear this with no panties, just to be a smart ass.
