This Week on the Internet


Sprinklers, Chickens, Kids, Bubbles. This is life in Pleasant Grove, Utah. I like it.

That's all. :) Now for my plethora of Internet links since I skipped posting last week:

I'm done worrying about not eating breakfast. If I'm hungry I'll eat. If not I won't. Phew. There's nothing magical about breakfast.

I laughed out loud when I saw this. North Korea wants us to vote for Trump... Lots of levels of irony and ridiculousness with that one.

I loved these thoughts from Ralph Waldo Emerson on trusting ourselves and being genuine:
To believe your own thought, to believe that what is true for you in your private heart is true for all men, — that is genius. Speak your latent conviction, and it shall be the universal sense; for the inmost in due time becomes the outmost.

The great man is he who in the midst of the crowd keeps with perfect sweetness the independence of solitude.
I've heard this quote and lesson from Elizabeth Smart before, but I think it's an important lesson about how our good intentions with abstinence only sex ed can unwittingly shame and do more harm than good. There's better ways to talk about sex than vague metaphors that are confusing and imply worthlessness for the non-compliant.

Russell would love me if I made these Shrimp Tempura Sushi Burritos. My kids would hate me. Hmmm... what to do... what to do...

Oh I love Calvin and Hobbes so much! I love this short documentary about why it's so good, even years later.

I also love X-files. I know, shocker right? But I thought this thread about real life X-files was interesting. Reddit warning, may be some questionable content. Those crazy redditors, man.

You won't instagram my food, but you'll eat it. Haha.

These are two amazing pictures that make me want to go and see the world, but at the same time I feel pretty content to travel vicariously through others via my computer screen.

Andrew Bird is one of my favorite singer/songwriters. Whistle + Violin = Awesome

Finally, Avatar is the best, Working out with kids, and Tattling on Daddy.
