Friday Links 6/23: The Drought is Over

I had an emotionally trying day, so let’s turn to the profound depths of the endless internet to drown my troubles.

Thankfully, after two weeks of fairly few links, I stumbled this week across a lot of interesting things (hope you’ll agree!) Continue reading “Friday Links 6/23: The Drought is Over”

Friday Links 6/16

It’s Friday! Which means it’s time for another links post, and somehow June just keeps on slipping by.

What are your plans for this weekend?
I have a visit from my aunt and her new guy (new because I haven’t met him, though they’ve been together for I think over a year). I love Aunt Susan- we’re kind of a lot alike, in how we think.  Do you remember when, growing up, you stopped feeling the disconnect between yourself and adults? And how amazing it was relating to them as actual people (as opposed to caregivers or cousin-argument-arbiters)?
And Sunday is Father’s Day- we’re planning a nice family brunch at The Friendly Toast (which looks delicious- except I can’t for the life of me tell what is vegan and what isn’t). Continue reading “Friday Links 6/16”

Wonder Women (Non-Spoiler)

Untitled

I saw Wonder Woman yesterday and the above is what I posted to Facebook afterward.
I have a lot of thoughts on the film, most of them positive, and I’d like to talk about them and what I feel like the film means- because despite being ‘just a film’, it’s really tempting to point to it as being something more. In part because I want to see more of these strong leading ladies- and hopefully the film’s critical success will pave the way for that.

I’m going to be careful not to spoil this film in the following post (anything that is a spoiler will be blocked out- highlight it if you want to see the text) because I do recommend that people see it. Continue reading “Wonder Women (Non-Spoiler)”

Friday Links 6/2

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”
