Here is this week’s list of blog posts, poems, short films and other tidbits from my favourite corners of the web.

Learning About Liquor. If only everyone had this attitude about moderation!

Loom. At first I couldn’t believe this short film was animated. It does become more obvious later on in the story, though. I wonder how soon we will reach a point in which people won’t be able to tell if what they are watching was created on a computer or actually happened?

This quote from In Which I Promise Not to Call Myself Fat should be posted everywhere:

I will not criticise my sisters for how they look or live, casting uncharitable words like stones, because my words of criticism or judgement have a strange way of being more boomerang than missile, swinging around to lodge in your own hearts.

Butterfly People. Confession: sometimes I fall into the habit of believing that the image other people project (including but not limited to what we see in the media) is who they actually are inside and that I’m the only one who second-guesses my decisions, has bad days or just doesn’t know what to do in a certain situation. This is the funniest, most creative approach to butterfly people that I’ve ever seen!

From What Work Is:

We stand in the rain in a long line
waiting at Ford Highland Park. For work.
You know what work is—if you’re
old enough to read this you know what
work is, although you may not do it.
Forget you. This is about waiting,
shifting from one foot to another.

I haven’t read anything noteworthy this past week. What have you been reading?

    I’m reading this on my computer in the car, using Jim’s phone as a hotspot, as we travel north.  We are on the edge of the city near mountains and it still works.  Video is a little slow.  pretty cool huh?!

    I am only reading the internet lately.  not even a magazine ….

    • That is incredible! How long did it take for you to get out of range?

      I haven’t read anything outside of the Internet lately either. April or May-July or August I tend to spend much more time outdoors enjoying the nice weather. 🙂

        It worked for at least an hour.  my computer battery was low so I shut it down before we were able to see how long the connection lasted.  But it working well on 3G as we were farther from the city.

Hey Thanks Lydia, I aspire to be so tech savvy as to be able to do the link backs…I saw that you posted a comment, then couldn’t find it for the longest time, then i found the link back, then I saw your lovely comment here.  Love that you found me and continue reading, love that you challenge me to think about the vegan…no easy feat for this French girl, butter please, more butter.  And love catching up on your posts too.  Be Well, Yolande, The Innkeeper’s Daughter
