A Year in Review Protest + Little Links O’ Love

xmas 2012_blog

I refuse to make this a review of all the crap on the internet from 2012.  That being said, I’ve read a couple of those & realized that I missed 99% of what they were talking about.  I’m out of the meme loop & I am above and beyond fine with that.  Ok.  I confess the ERMERGHERD’s were pretty damn funny.  Brian & I spent an entire evening looking them up & laughing our asses off (ERMERGHERD SKERSGERD!)…and I did get completely annoyed by those f’in Marilyn memes, but aside from those two exceptions I remain blissfully unaware of them.  I have never been one to pay much attention to popular media.

So instead of a yearly roundup I give you all sorts of new link-y goodness for you to peruse & enjoy.  Happiest of Happy New Year’s, kids.  I lurves ya!

  • Bob Hope & Katherine Hepburn did a movie together?!?!?!?  How did I, lover of all things Bob, not know this?  I came across it while looking Turner Classic Movies rare movie section, The Vault Collection.  I am sooooo adding this to my shopping list.  Hell yes.
  • So my honey & I have been talking about buying a house, which is only completely intimidating.  Needless to say I was happy when I stumbled across this first time home buyer’s guide on HGTV’s site.  It walks you through the home buying process step by step, which totally helped quell my anxiety.
  • Guinea Pigs are so freakin’ adorable…and don’t even get me started on those funny little noises they make.  CUTE!
  • I wrote 52 Doses with the belief that we can change our thoughts & learn to be happier…and numerous studies agree.  Kick ass.
  • I think I’m going to give my closet a makeover by following this plan to purge.
  • I’ve been coming across a lot of comments on other sites about political correctness & cultural appropriation which led me to google “I’m sick of political correctness.”  That’s when I came across this post.  What do you think?  Are we becoming a culture of thin-skinned wimps?  Do we need to toughen up or does political correctness create a kinder society?
  • Have you ever wanted style advice from Dita Von Teese?  Now you can get it.  Read Dita’s words of fashion wisdom here.
  • Want to make your dull winter skin glow but can’t afford the price tag that comes along with a spa visit?  Gala Darling teaches you how to make your own pumpkin facial peel.  I’ll be testing this recipe tonight.
  • Andrea over at the Creative Dream Incubator talks about chasing your dream while dealing with haters.
  • Did you miss The Walking Dead’s Christmas Special?  Yes.  That’s what I said.  A Zombie Christmas special…because Little Links O’ Love wouldn’t be the same without zombies.
  • This week we’ll close with something sentimental: Steve Martin & Bernadette Peters singing “You Belong To Me.”   Not only is this song 100% sweet, but Steve Martin was one of my first crushes (he came after Bob Hope, so I must have been about 3 or 4 years old) & my honey & I danced to it at our wedding.  Awwwwwwwwww.





Holiday Kisses & Merry Chaos,
