Hoping y’all have a great one.
Betsy is still trying to get settled back into blogger life. She’s going to head over to her brand new home with the dude and kids to sledgehammer some kitchen cabinets and built-ins that must go.
Perhaps Sarah will be getting a start on all that landscaping she has in mind. She tried to enlist her family in lieu of birthday presents. How did that go, Sarah?
Here’s what is happening on the internet that we’ve been into lately.
Sure, USA doesn’t seem like the network where we’d send you for quality tv, but whoa! Mr. Robot is awesome. We were heavily influenced by Chuck Palahniuk’s FIGHT CLUB era back in our college days at UNCG. The narrative quality of this new show is more than reminiscent, it’s downright inspired. We’ll see if Christian Slater is Brad Pitt or not. Even if he is, we’re not mad about a highly paranoid dystopian vigilante hacker that flails between addiction and aim at taking down corporate America. It’s actually quite clever and we find ourselves feeling really proud for picking up on all of the nuance.
On personal Facebook, Betsy almost exclusively shares inspirations from her favorite site Brainpickings.org and this week’s was a doozy. Check out The Crossroads Between Should and Must. It might not be for everyone, but if you are ever on the quest for self understanding, and of the ilk of people/society pleasing – then this might help you self reflect.
Betsy found a Tshirt that pretty much sums her up.
And lastly, since you know we follow the goings on of the Ruffalo Home so much that we rank on the first page of Google for the search term, here’s who snagged it up after it passed from Ruffalo, to Zooey Deschanel. It’s now on to the Arctic Monkeys.
And now a quick word from our sponsors!
