A E I O

Mostly reblogs relating to science, books/reading, and photography. Sometimes some original content. I also blog about whiskey, my teenager, and my forties elsewhere. I'll share if you ask nicely.

Well, %$#%$*^*%

  • I did a factory reset of my phone to once-and-for-all deal with some ongoing storage and memory issues.
  • me: Oh man.
  • me: I just realized one thing that I've lost that it will take me FOREVER to get back.
  • friend: Oh no...
  • me: All my swear words.
  • friend: *snortgiggle*
  • me: I taught my phone so many swears.
  • me: SO MANY.
  • friend: *proposes marriage*
  • Holy crap, y'all. It didn't reset the dictionary!! It didn't reset the dictionary!!
  • I am beside myself. I am gleeful.
  • Seriously. This was a vast and well-curated collection of profanity. There were 15 variations of the word 'fuck' alone.

"The Favorite" by Omar Rayyan

Favorite what? Demon?!

Loving the fact that whatever it is is wearing a matching flower.

I love how “favorite” implies that there are more.

that is just about the most badass little girl in all existence

I’d actually like this in print form, please.

California-based Yarnboming artists Jill and Lorna Watt of Knits For Life (previously featured here) recently transformed a pair of unassuming benches near the San Francisco Ferry Building into adorably ferocious monsters, complete with six awesome orange feet. The irrepressibly inventive sisters created this delightful yarn installation for an upcoming episode of CCTV America’s new show Full Frame.
