Twitter, Titter, and Read

Admittedly, I am quite an old-fashioned fellow. However, there is no denying how delightful the internet is. So much information, right at my fingertips! Now, obviously, I still pour into books – I like the smell of ink and paper. I like the heft of the tomes and I like the way my library looks filled with information and I like the portability of books.

And after the incident last year involving my bathtub and a computer, books are necessary should you want to read whilst bathing. (A breath-taking woman in the North Country informed me she intends to put her Kindle in a Ziplock bag in order to use it in the bath. She’s smart as well as stunning.)

On a lovely and cool August morning such as this one, I sit on my veranda sipping coffee and peruse the inter-world. Here are some of my favorite findings.

Today, August 24th, is Jorge Luis Borges’ birthday. “I have always imagined that Paradise will be a kind of library.”

My cousin Amelia went into space in a homemade space ship. She never sent images like these back. No grudge held:

Thank you to all my feathered friends. You make life soar. The joy of feathers

Bubo did a little dance when she saw this: If you’ve never seen a great horned owl do a dance, I recommend against it.

This is absolutely beautiful. If you’ve been excused from work early, create something astounding.

It is never too late to start planning ahead, you know. Cryonics centers around the world:

That should keep you busy for quite awhile. Happy Wednesday, my dears.

  1. I’m deeply honored to have inspired a Bubo-dance, even if it’s a sight to avoid beholding!
