Ten Amazing/Strange/Inspiring Things I Saw on the Internet Last Week
#1: A man who spent $158K on plastic surgery in order to resemble a human Ken doll insults a woman who wears makeup and hair extensions in order to look like a human Barbie doll.
Already I need an aspirin.
#2: Bruce and Melanie's Steampunk Victorian House
Bruce and Melanie, adopt me, please. Or let me be your housekeeper.
#3: "Don't break anyone's heart
They only have one
Break their bones
they have 206"
My next hobby: evil cross-stitch.
#4: Google adds the temples of Angkor, Cambodia to StreetView
This is one of the places in the world that I've always wanted to visit but likely won't, so I'm totally in love.
#5: Sakura, Sakura ~ the cherry blossoms of Tokyo
Sigh. If I ever visit Japan, it will have to be during March or April.
#6: The 25 Stages from Courtship to Marriage (in hand-tinted stereograph)
My count is 24 -- apparently one of the cards is missing -- but still, quite charming. Also a good reminder of how lucky we contemporary women are for not having to wear those long skirts and all the corsets, crinolines and petticoats that went with them.
#7: What happens when you and your family stop eating sugar for a year.
I lost forty pounds my first year. Still sugar-free, too.
#8: The Ten Types of Writer's Block and How to Overcome Them
Number 11: You spend your creative time reading articles about writer's block instead of writing.
#9: Woman throws shoe at Hillary Clinton during speech.
Everyone thought this was funny but me. Probably because I'm thinking how it could have easily been a grenade instead of a shoe.
Sony's version of Sakura, I guess. If more commercials were this inventive I might start watching television again.
