Dragon wedding cake
Done my wedding wrong. Obviously.
now I know what to do in my wedding….
Maybe I should rethink this whole “marriage is for the birds” thing…
Science Penguin [x]
i enjoy that every single human’s reaction to penguin is unrestrained delight
And penguins lack large terrestrial predators, so their reaction to humans tends to be, “HELLO STRANGE GIANT PENGUINS, WHAT ARE YOU DOING? DO YOU HAVE ANY FISH?”
SO HAPPY TO SEE SCIENCE PENGUIN ON MY DASH.
Speaking of weddings and Scotland…. I wrote about one you may have heard about recently. Shoutout to Outlander fans: Don’t tell the other fandoms, but you are kind of the best.
Anyway, I just realized a few things about my own wedding. A number of my Scottish relatives came and celebrated with Dave and I when we got hitched in 2000. (Forgive the quality of the images — they’re pictures of pictures. I was too lazy to scan them.)
The top picture is of me and my cousin David Shepherd. Awesome kilt, right? Also in attendance at our wedding that spring: A couple of other cousins, Mary and Jimmy Fraser.
Several years ago, when we visited the Frasers in their home in the town of Auchtermuchty (the greatest name of any town EVER), the house they were living in at the time faced the Firth of Forth. Jimmy went out into the bay and caught us some lobster. As you do. Also, Scottish people win at naming things.
On that visit and in other visits to Scotland, we could not have asked for more amazing hosts. When I was in England for my junior year of college, we went up to Fife for Hogmanay and had the most amazing night. The stamina and generosity of Scottish people never ceased to amaze me. They were only a little judgmental when we went to bed at 6 am on Hogmanay. They were still going strong. What is in that whisky, you guys?
So, I wasn’t thinking about my Fraser relatives or my Scottish trips when I wrote about the show. But did I have a subconscious bias toward Outlander because I have Scottish relatives and some of them are named Fraser and all of them are awesome? It’s possible.
I accept that.
Oh, and the second picture of my wedding dress is there because I want to make it clear that my wedding dress rocked. (My husband is the guy at the top right of the second photo, btw.) The ladies at the wedding dress store called the color “Champagne” but let’s be real: It was GOLD.
That’s how I roll.

Animated Streetart GIFs by A. L. Crego
Fantastic project by the Spanish photographer and motion designer AL Crego , the variety Street artwork and murals, which run everywhere so his path, photographed and later created from animated GIFs. On his tumblr blog there is also another, very interesting things to discover, I’ve subscribed to the just. The best GIFs we have down here for you:
“An ongoing project for Spanish photographer and motion designer, AL Crego is taking various works of street art to animating them into some great GIFs.”
The thing about this is that sculptures like these in art history were for the male gaze. Photoshop a phone to it and suddenly she’s seen as vain and conceited. That’s why I’m 100% for selfie culture because apparently men can gawk at women but when we realize how beautiful we are we’re suddenly full of ourselves…
Girls don’t let anyone tell you loving yourself is vanity.
“You painted a naked woman because you enjoyed looking at her, put a mirror in her hand and you called the painting “Vanity,” thus morally condemning the woman whose nakedness you had depicted for you own pleasure.” ― John Berger, Ways of Seeing
