Don't worry, I didn't run away. I ended up being super busy. I don't have much to say about that, so here's some interesting reading material:
Results oriented work environments--I think this is an awesome idea. More flexibility and enjoyment in the lives of employees, less overhead for employers, and probably more productivity. Being a big socializer, I get far more work done at home (or I did when I had a job...) than I would if I was chatting up co-workers, taking lengthy bathroom breaks, making trips to the water cooler and starting to pack up my stuff at 4:45 p.m. each day.
Space walk description--Wow! He does a pretty good job describing something that must be indescribable. I wish I could go. It sounds quiet up there and I like quiet.
Math + Fantasy= Alice in Wonderland--I thought this was pretty interesting. I love Alice in Wonderland and I hate math. I'm glad Lewis Carroll was subtle about it.
True story of Zeitoun--I've been meaning to read the book Dave Eggers wrote about this guy, but now I'm afraid it would make me very angry. Unbelievable.
Bedazzle your vag--No really, don't. This is the dumbest waste of money I have ever heard of, I don't think it looks that good and frankly, I think it would be uncomfortable during sexy time.
Ellen rocks--She gave a college scholarship to the lesbian student whose entire prom was canceled because she was bringing her girlfriend as a date. Seriously--fuck the Itawamba County School District. Ignorant bastards. A hotel owner has offered to host a private prom for the school but whatever "grown-ups" decided canceling prom was the reasonable solution should lose all future decision-making abilities since they are obviously idiots.
Tea Partiers--Clearly these are classy, reasonable people and are the perfect group to reform our nation to its former greatness. And they aren't racists or bigots! Gentlemen and scholars, every one of them. (/sarcasm)
Owl cam--this is not an article, but we need something warm and sweet and fuzzy so we can forget about the Tea Party trash. So, here's a live feed of an owl waiting for her eggs to hatch. Awwwww!
I'm heading to the pool to work on some skin cancer. I hope you all are having a nice weekend!
