1. Dogs

    A twitter conversation I had a while ago:

    @spacevalkyrie: my dog is sorta like a fat little burrito http://t.co/k4D6oePD

    @lisa_lefteye:will pet photography be a successful genre in 20 years? reinvented and post-ironic?

    @spacevalkyrie: if it is I will be it’s queen I suppose

  2. Friday Thing: Long Weekend Edition

    Happy Friday! My dog wasn’t so happy in this shot because he had just taken a bath.

    Hope you enjoy the long weekend. I may or may not be having a certain children’s card game tournament at my house. Here’s some links to procrastinate to until you can go home from work:

    • Are you a woman or woman-identified artist? You should enter one of these shows hosted by the Women’s Caucus of the Arts. (Pssst: my image is next to the description for the “Bound” show)
    • Have you ever head of June and Jennifer Gibbons, the silent twins
    • A guinea pig on a skateboard
    • My favorite super easy and fast recipe for tomato soup.
    • I was going to link to about ten articles from KQED Science, so I figured I should just link to the tumblr instead. Good stuff here. 
    • “If I shave my bikini line instead of waxing it, the hair will grow back in the shape of the words ‘YOU IDIOT.’ And it will all be ingrown.” 
    • I take this personality test every six months or so, and I’ve always found it eerily accurate. Here’s what it said about me this time: ”Is stubborn and strong-willed, once her mind is made up it is impossible to change it. She does not ask for much, so she feels when she does ask her needs should be met.”
    • I DARE YOU TO GET THIS OUT OF YOUR HEAD

  4. We should not turn away from our natural gifts. 

    This well animated little short made me happy. I hope you watch it and it makes you happy too.
