I Loved Baby Driver (Spoiler Free)

baby-driver-1

I loved Baby Driver (trailer here!) extremely much but it kind of took a backseat to other things going on in life. Things like 1) AMERICA (‘MURICA) and 2) FRANCE and 3) TRAVEL to the quiet wilds of Pennsylvania.

So now let’s get down and dirty and talk about Baby Driver because it’s really excellent (assuming you like any one or combination of the following: heist films, gangster films, action, car chases, and/or music- should be most people, I think). Continue reading “I Loved Baby Driver (Spoiler Free)”

Friday Links 6/2

dc4a6cadfcee4b43732d4f2f6cef78f0

Happy first Friday of June! It’s hard to believe we’re almost halfway through 2017 already.
And as I know you’re wondering, a brief update my spring summer resolutions:

  1. Yoga everyday: Successful, but mostly because I’m zealously practicing upside down tree pose (aka, a handstand)
  2. Dry brushing: Also successful- I’ve dry brushed once every day.  It’s been good for my skin I think, especially because it helps me remember to moisturize.
  3. Daily meditation: Failure. I haven’t meditated since I posted indicated my intent to do so.

And the image above is my new monthly desktop background. Alright, I think that’s all the updates.

Oh, no it’s not, I lied. Excitingly, this May that just ended was the highest-viewed month that List Mimsy has had, tallying at over 1,000 views. Thanks everyone! Continue reading “Friday Links 6/2”

A few disclaimers before we get into the meat and gristle of this here post. 1) I do know that I’m stealing the title of this post from a book (Mom’s a big knitter- go check out Stitch ‘n Bitch: The Knitter’s Handbook by Debbie Stoller on amazon) and 2) have I been talking about shopping and fashion a bit too much recently? I don’t think so, but I’ve some movie and book lists on the burner.

I’m not a very crafty person.  My idea of DIY is more my Dad’s (power tools for the win!) than Mom’s (knitting and quilting) but I do have a great appreciation for handiwork.  Particularly when that handiwork hits just the right balance between the tenderly personal and the gleefully subversive.
