I am out-of-my-mind busy at work today, so here are some links that will entertain you on my behalf:
- A Little Help from Your Friends
Okay, this one’s not that entertaining (the rest will be, I promise!) but I wanted to share it out of the goodness of my heart. Kids need books! Do you have books? Send them to the kids!
This was not the first Hyperbole and a Half post I ever read, but it was the one that cemented my love for blogger Allie Brosh. She’s hilarious, not always safe for work, and adorably neurotic. (The rest of these links are from her archives.)
- Cake Versus Pie: A Scientific Approach
Personally I like cake better than pie, but I found myself unable to argue with Allie’s scientific reasoning. Thwarted by logic again!
- Boyfriend Doesn’t Have Ebola. Probably.
a.k.a “A Better Pain Scale.” After taking her boyfriend to the hospital, Allie realized that their little frownie face pain charts make no sense. She made a better one. It’s fantastic.
- My Childhood, In Pictures
This is how it all began for Allie. And me. Minus the drawing and the sibling. I just spent a lot of time alone in my parents’ office while they worked. Writing was my entertainment.
