This weekend, I have mainly been working on a super long list of contacts for a project due Monday. I have officially become spreadsheet blind. I am dreaming in columns. As the task was time sensitive, I made to sure to leave enough spare moments for time wasting in my schedule as I know who I am. The best part of working on the internet is the random stuff that you find whilst casually doing your day to day job, this means I am never wanting for things to browse as my “read later” list is extensive. Here are some of the things I found on the internet during my breaks that kept me sane whilst I gently wept over my keyboard in between breaks.
The fact that there is a Moomin Theme Park.
I shit you not. All your childhood dreams have come true and you can actually travel to Finland and visit Moomin valley. Moomin World is Located in the island of Kailo beside the old town of Naantali, near the city of Turku in Southwest Finland. I mean, LOOK AT IT. It’s marvelous. How happy do they look in that picture? And whats that, they have a replica of the actual Moomin house? My inner ten-year-old self cannot contain herself. I’m adding meeting one of my fashion icons – “Little My” onto my bucket list immediately.
If anyone knows where I would be bale to stream this show, I would love you forever.
The woman engaged to a chandelier.
I love this story far too much. Sometimes a story just casually pops up into your news feed when you’re feeling blue and you have no idea whats going to happen when you click the link. All that you do know is that it won’t be boring. This was that story this of the week for me. To summarise, this fabulous creature has decided “screw men, this is exhausting” and set up house with a cornucopia of chandeliers, one of which she is engaged to.
The woman, Amanda, seems sincerely happy with Lumiere, her fiance – so good for her enjoying her polyamorous relationship with not just any old lamp, but instead, with the Liberace of lighting options.Way to go extra, Amanda, I applaud you.
We all do that thing where we spot an image (pictured below) and it captures us and it leads you on a random adventure. Well, that was my story this week with Pauline Boty. She had been on my mind ever since I first saw her picture at the V&A “So you want a revolution exhibition” (Fabulous event – I really want a youthquake!) and I found myself researching her more.
With the recent death of the Cristine Keeler, this painting she made during that period was brought up in a feed of mine and I was drawn back into a Wikipedia whirlpool trying to find futher information about her. So much so, I am currently working on a post about her. Very fascinating woman.
Literally digital crack, I discovered this game back in sixth form and haven’t been able to give it up since. The concept is simple, capture as many bees in bubbles (hence the snazzy name) within an allotted time as you can and try to beat your best score. Add a saccharine piano accomplishment to do it and et voila! The best way to waste a few hours of your life without feeling dirty afterwards… or something that will haunt your dreams. You decide.
There are loads of wonderful games on the Orisinal website, so I highly recommend giving it some time on a rainy Sunday..on that note:
The fact that it is snowing. I was having a wonderful Sunday Morning until I woke up to find world coated in fresh snow. It’s all well and good when you can practice hygge in your onesie in your flat, surrounded by cats but something else completely when you have to get up and commute in it on Monday morning. Sometimes, I am too forward thinking for my own good but I can’t help feeling glum about the fact that it is winter. How do you guys make yourself feel better in the colder months? I need all the help I can get – my housemate has recommended whiskey in my tea, I do wonder….
