After a few weeks spent pounding the keyboard in the name of novels or grad school applications, I have to say my internet trolling has decreased considerably. Damn you, productivity!

LAUGH: Hommemaker (Orlando Soria)
Orlando Soria is a design/fashion/whimsy blogger with great personal style and hilarious style style, if you get my drift. (It’s been a long week and I’m running out of euphemisms.) For proof/elucidation, check out the HG’s Secrets from a Stylist assistant’s post about men’s haircuts. Or his entire blog.
PANIC: Dance vs. PowerPoint: A Modest Proposal
This video blends speech, movement and experiments in molecular biology to make a modest proposal: that PowerPoints, PhDs, or any complicated subject matter can most simply be described through dance. According to Dr. John Bohannon, “the fewer words the better.” I nearly had an aneurism, but I have to agree the man makes a good point.
Thank you to the Cool Hunter for this image.
IMAGINE: Inkjet Transfer Table Settings
Make these quirky linens using the easy instructions from Kate at Design*Sponge. It looks like a totally sweet way to customize your dinner table for the holidays. If I had a color printer, I would take pictures of my face and paste it all over Boyfriend’s dinner napkins as a fun surprise!
