I’m back

toastOver 2 years ago I abandoned this blog. It was a lonely orphan wandering the dark sleezey streets of the internet. In a curious and delightful way we’ve reconnected and you’ll be able to find me here….blogging. As a side note–I know we can’t change “blogging”, but writing it down and seeing it on screen makes me feel kind of squidgy. I’d welcome some recommendations for a new name of whatever it is I’m doing.

Anyway. Howdy internet! For the start of the week here’s a few links to get reacquainted:
We’ll start here at I love charts  because they’ve got a great diagram of toast.

And last week, the DailyMail had a silly article about women, here’s the the actual study if you want. From this article it looks like someone got a gift bag from Saphora and turned it into a science fair project. I’m not really sure what to make of it. When participants of the study were shown faces  of women with make-up on they were considered more attractive, competent, likeable and trustworthy. (Do not ask me how mascara makes me more competent or trustworthy. It just does.) But when participants were looking at the make-up face for longer periods of time, the faces with heavy make-up were considered more attractive, competent, likeable, but not trustworthy. In all cases, not wearing makeup apparently makes you a looser.  What’s the take away? Next time I pile on the makeup I’ll make sure to keep moving.

This man’s art will make you feel better.

Once you’ve done that, you can join me leaf collecting. Then we’ll sit around and make these while we drink tea and chat about how much we love fall. We can also sit around an look at pics of Ryan Gosling.

I’m going to be posting about what I’m reading and writing, along with my misadventures here in Asheville. Stay tuned!
