Laugh Break

I’ve been battling a hideous cold this whole week. All motivation and gumption ran out of my nose, along with some other unmentionables. However, they say laughter is the best medicine, and I think it’s true – I actually got out of bed to post this! Ryan Gosling mixed with feminist theory, total GENIUS! Just too good not to share, unlike my cold. So laugh, it does a body good.

Hola y Adios

Adios mi amigas y amigos! I’m headed to Mexico this afternoon for a week-long excursion with some girlfriends and I’ll tell you one thing, after thirty rainy Portland days a sunburn is sounding mildly pleasant. I’ll be taking a technology break for a week so I won’t be posting, e-mailing, or perusing the internet. I think it will be good for my brain to not have to do a thousand things at once. However, Kim, the other half of  Whim, will be emerging from the rabbit hole to post in my absence – yay!

Have a lovely week!

Laugh Break

Just popped over to Unhappy Hipster for a much needed work break and a little injection of some funny in my day.  

“As the silence stretched on, the coolness of the furnishings failed to overcome the flaws of Craigslist Personals.” – Suzy W.


“As usual, a supper of sliced fruit was easier than trying to figure out which panel hid the stove.” – Lizzy Kate G.



To do: alphabetize mail, dust table legs, de-lint upholstery, finish wall installation of enlarged bank notices, tweeze eyebrows, call finish carpenter.

Happy Friday! This has been a week full of Fridays for me because I’ve been on vacation and lovin’ every minute of it!  We just returned from our mini ski vacation last night and it was really a great time spent with friends, with lots of laughter, good eats and a rewarding tiredness that comes from energy well spent on the mountain.
