Weekend Reads: Weird Twitter, AZ Holidays & Star Trek

Arizona Holidays

That right there folks is an original Frijolita’s Mom ipad drawing. (Arizona holidays…in case you were guessing.) I’m having it printed, framed and it’s going up in my new apartment. Oh, did I mention I upgraded to a fancy new one bedroom last week!? It’s kind of great. It’s also a lot of space and sometimes I marvel at it and sometimes I don’t know what to do with it all. I’m a nester, so empty or un-cozy space is like kryptonite to me. While I go browse my 58234th furniture sale, here’s some links to get you through the weekend!

Avocados should be extinct?! What!? Nooooooo!

How to handle people who want to fight with you on the internet.

I love my home state of Arizona. Recently, the Grand Canyon filled with fog making it an eerie, almost mystical sight.

Two dads discuss their gay sons on the train one evening. Heart…melting….

Dogs are such funny little beasts. This one remembers his favorite song from puppyhood and sings along.
