Things I Love Thursday

I started following a new blog the other day, and she has some excellent advice for how not to go insane when you have to deal with word verification while blog commenting. Seriously guys, ditch the word verification, but in the mean time, Expecto Patronum!

How to Get More Likes on Facebook.

Make any photo 3D in Photoshop!

Kurt Vonnegut's 8 Tips on How to Write a Great Story.  Somehow I don't think these tips will allow you to write like Vonnegut, but hey, worth a try eh?

I really liked Alice's post on history and those historical events people may not know about.

A Christian group apologizes at a Chicago Pride Parade.  This totally warmed my heart. My favorite line: "I hugged a man in his underwear.  I think Jesus would have too."

Worst Album Covers of All Time. Some of these are NSFW.  I think my favorite is the German Dwight Schtrute-ish one.

A Guide to Maine Slang. This made me miss home and feel like I was in high school again. Jeezum crow.

Vacationland: Rural Maine Chronicled in the Photography of Steven Rubin.  For the record these images weren't taken in the part of Maine where I grew up, but they easily could have been.

15 Things You Should Give Up to be Happy.  I think I might've posted this ages ago but it bears repetition. Thanks to Julia for this :)

The 21 Absolute Worst Things in the World.

Behind the Scenes "Star Wars" Photos.

63 Reasons why Boybands were Better in the 90s. I don't agree they were better or even passable but damn, those photos brought me back. I looked at every single one, and then simultaneously laughed and cried at myself.

When I had cancer at age 4 or so, my parents took me to Camp Rainbow, a non-profit camp for children with cancer and their parents.  I went almost every year until I was 14 or 15, and after that became a program aid and a counselor.  The camp is still going on and gets news coverage just about every year (my first year there I was in the newspaper!) and here is this year's article.  I was totally floored that the kid they interviewed, who is now a counselor himself, was one of my campers in Arts and Crafts class.

5 Reasons Women will Rule the Future.

Blooper reel from the Subaru "Dog Tested" commercials.  I'm amazed at how much smarter these dogs are than Cypress.

In case you were wondering, here is the recipe to that stew I talked about in my last post. Honestly, it could've done without the olives.

15 Important Moments in History (If Social Media was Around).

Most of you have probably read this but it's so awesome I'm posting it.  Ashley Judd Slaps Media in the Face for Speculation over her "Puffy" Appearance.  Fuck yeah Ashley Judd!

  1. Ashley Rocks! Have always loved her. Stew with olives? I love olives but...yes, maybe omit those and have them on the side (in a martini.) I'm not going to look at the worst things link because I can come up with enough of my own scenarios for that, and often do...i'm trying to stop. The Star Wars one is my favorite this week. Bookmarked it to show my man when he gets home. :)

    1. Yeah, the olives were pretty yucky in it. Rob thought they detracted from the taste. Luckily I'd added them right at the end so we could just pick them out! And the Star Wars photos were so cool. If I could be on any movie set it would've been those ones!

  2. Oh, and word verification...seriously, why??? I do comment moderation so that comments are sent to email and I will be aware when I get one but I don't understand the benefit of word verification whatsoever.

    Thanks for sharing the links!
