Turn Me Well

What a shocker, it was another slow-to-start Minnesotan Monday morning. Wherein the lad and I each had difficulties emerging from our respective blanket cocoons to face the day. But we were oh so cozy. Sigh. Five good things to make this Monday morning less painful:

  • An interview with Sheela and Emily, our local cupcake (and more!) ladies.
  • Far superior to and less depressing than Fuck My Life, I give you My Life is Average. Their fairly simple tagline “life is pretty normal today” belies the humor in its users’ posts.
  • Anything but a normal life, I am fascinated by the barefoot boy bandit.
  • I’ve just discovered Seed Magazine: “Science is changing our world. It is behind the transformations—social, economic, artistic, intellectual, and political—that are defining the 21st century. Through this lens, and with the newest tools of media and journalism, we aim to tell the fundamental story of our world today and to provide information and knowledge to help you prepare for the story tomorrow.” Nifty.
  • Lastly, and the best thing ever:
    A recent episode of the Fuji TV variety show Mecha-Mecha Iketeru! featured a group of Ultraman monsters dancing to Michael Jackson’s “Thriller” as part of a mock audition for the new Ultraman film “Mega Monster Battle: Ultra Galaxy Legend The Movie.”

    Watch the video here.

And to further soften the blow of beginning another long week we will continue with our newish routine - that involves swimming and hot tub time after school. Yes.

    Is the title a Micachu shout-out? If so, I LOVE that song. In my top 5 of the year. Also, that picture is fantastic…looks dated in a beautiful way.

    Yes! I’ve been on a Micachu kick that won’t end, and I’m ok with that. And thanks, but I have to give credit to one of CameraBag’s fine filters :-)
