Wow. I’m not sure. I was on and off tumblr for a while, and I barely have time to read my dash these days. It looks like she deactivated her tumblr, and I’m sure she had her reasons for doing so.
FromNoonaWithLove, hope you’re doing okay out there!
When your neighbor plays music that you like, plaster yourself up against their door and use your phone to Shazam it.
These illustrations by Billy Nunez take the cast of The Wizard of Oz and transports them waaaay away from Kansas, into a mystical Chinese realm. And yes, before someone mentions it, there are koalas in China. Also, if the Lion is now a Tiger, who is the Tiger?
“In English,” Professor Austin said, “a double negative forms a positive. However, in some languages, such as Russian, a double negative remains a negative. But there isn’t a single language, not one, in which a double positive can express a negative.”

- Me, playing with BF's 4-year-old niece: What are you going to do with that shovel?
- Niece: I'm gonna dig in the dirt.
- : :1 minute passes::
- Niece: I'm bored. There's nothing here.
- Me: Why don't you try planting something?
- Niece, looks around: What can I plant?
- Me: Why don't you try planting this rock?
- Niece, mystified: Can I really plant it?
- Me: Sure, you can.
- Niece: What does it grow into?
- Me: A bigger rock.
- Niece, skeptical: Is that true?
- Me: Sure, it is. Where do you think mountains come from?
- Niece: Rocks?
- Me: That's right. Haven't you ever seen a mountain?
- Niece: Yes...
- Me: And what's a mountain?
- Niece, enlightenment dawning: A big rock!
Guys, guys! Day 3 in New Orleans and I am absolutely in love.
The food’s fantastic, the people friendly, the rent affordable, and I’m currently at a coffee shop that makes my top 3 list, hands down. There’s a built-in PC cafe in the place, they’re bumpin’ punk music, and the BF’s playing Go with one of the regulars. The bathroom graffiti features book recommendations and references to Monty Python.
I want to move to here.
The only cons I can see so far are: The weather’s hotter than Harry Shum Jr. on a grill, and there’s a notable lack of Asian food. But seriously! Smoking cigarettes and drinking $5 beer at a jazz bar? Perfect.
This review of the “soccer mom” porn, or whatever they’re calling it, Fifty Shades of Grey, is hilarious.
I really liked this part too:
I’m not even going to condemn it because I’ve seen better storytelling in an evening news segment about a raccoon who got a peanut butter jar stuck on his head in a Wendy’s parking lot. What I do take issue with is that an author is making money off of people who are too technologically illiterate to find GOOD porn out there and are getting stuck with this nonsense instead because it’s the one part of Computers they can’t just ask a nephew about.
I just laughed quite hard.
The whole of this review is just full of snarky genius.
