links and a parrot

In case you don't follow me on the instagrams, a guy sat beside me on the bus yesterday with a parrot in his lap and he eventually let me hold it after taking these pictures. It's a long bus ride.

"I brought him into Lulu Lemon today and he sat on all the girls' shoulders."
"Oh yeah."
"He really loves attention from girls."

Yeah pal, I can see that "the parrot" loves the attention.

This photo is brilliant.

5 extra years. It's kind of horrifying if you think about it.

Frankly, I don't care what a lot of people's tattoos "mean", but these illustrations and the stories are neat.

Let them eat cake. And also let them read really really bad books. I read the entire V.C. Andrews Flowers In The Attic series when I was a kid. And every single Peter Straub/Stephen King etc. horror book I could get my hands on.

These Great Showdowns!! Awesome.

31 strange and unusual McDonalds around the world.  I've been to the one in Las Vegas, when I was thirteen. There are slot machines inside it.

I have to admit, this camera would be super fun to play with.

Here is every reason you need to get out from behind the camera and into a photo or two.

Must leaders be gregarious?

I think these posts can show a lot about a person; what their current interests and moods are probably dictates what links they find interesting enough to share. So...let me see, this week I must be obsessed with being introverted, life being short, and the secret goodness hidden in all humanity.

Yeah that sounds about right. 

Have a great Sunday.
