Five Quirky and Possibly Inadvisable Things

Unicorn in Chalk

Finally, I found a unicorn!

1)  I kinda want to raid the closet of Nicki Grant from Big Love.  I love her blouses and belts!

2)  I cannot read a blog that uses center justification as its default setting for the text.  I just can’t.  It drives my eyes crazy.  (Note that I make an exception for photo captions here.  Photo captions are typically just one or two lines—that doesn’t have the same crazy-making effect.)

3)  Nobody has proposed to me lately, but if I did get married, I’d want to dance with my new husband to this song.  I especially love the lines, “I see friends shaking hands, saying how do you do…they’re really saying I love you.” 

What a wonderful world indeed!

4)  I am obsessed with the idea of making these cookies.  It just doesn’t get much better than chai spices and frosting.  Yum.

5)  This week I watched a wonderful TED talk from Sam Harris about science and morality.  Think science has nothing to say about moral decision-making?  Think again.  This talk articulated a lot of my thoughts on ethics, but Sam Harris does it so much more eloquently.  Please watch. 

Happy Friday, my dears!

Phew! Glad my photo captions have not made your eyes crazy and met with your ire. I love that you found a unicorn!

Of course not! Maybe my rant about center justification came out more harshly than I meant. I think people should do whatever they want with their blogs, but it's good for all of us to know that certain choices really are more difficult to read. I feel like it's a "thing" I encounter a lot with style blogs, and I wish they would not do that. (For what it's worth, I have the same feeling about white text on a black background.) Maybe I should write a post about formatting issues...at the risk of offending everyone everywhere.

I find your blog perfectly lovely and readable :-)
