Yesterday was our last full day at home before I leave for Korea. 😎   The reason for my week-long (9 days with travel time) trip back to the motherland is a cousin’s wedding. I was actually supposed to visit Korea earlier this year for another cousin’s wedding, but decided to cancel the trip in light […]

3 Flowcharts [Sleep, GoT, and World Cup Edition]

My head is a royal mess right now. Packing. Cleaning. Making sure the girls don’t kill each other. Laundry. My 15th rendition of “Do-Re-Mi” (C&A’s favorite song at the moment) today. More cleaning (because I can’t leave for a trip without cleaning first). In case you have more free time than me today, here are three flowcharts you may […]

“Why Did They Have to Die?”, Game of Thrones Edition [Infographic]

Although the most popular complaint against A Song of Ice and Fire series is the callous and unexpected ways in which George R.R. Martin kills off beloved characters (have you seen this?), my biggest complaint is that there are just too. Many. Damn. Characters. And as someone who is horrible with names — especially names that are difficult to pronounce (you […]

Honest Video Game Box Art

Honest Video Game Box Art is a Facebook page that edits video game covers to more accurately depict its gameplay, and/or what it does to the people playing it. As you can imagine, it hosts some pretty funny revisions.  😆  Here are some of my favorites — the Contra cover has to be my favorite! You […]

Grumpy Cat Meets Disney

Digital artist Eric Proctor imagines how the internet’s crabbiest cat would fit into the world of Disney. All the illustrations in the series are delightfully amusing, and a few are laugh-out-loud funny.  😆  Be sure to check out the titles for each piece as well for a nice diversion this dreary Friday the thirteenth! “Part of Your No” “Some […]

Green Meadows Farm

This past Memorial Day, we decided to visit Green Meadows Farm, a “petting farm” 45 mins from Manhattan. My daughters seem to be city girls. Aerin wasn’t too impressed with the farm animals, while Claire was scared of most of them. We weren’t able to get too many pictures because we had to keep holding the […]

How Well Can You Read Others’ Emotions? [The Eye Test]

I can be awkward in social situations, but I like to think that I’m sensitive to people’s moods and emotions. So when I happened upon this “mind behind the eyes” test by University of Cambridge professor Simon Baron-Cohen, I expected myself to score well… And I did.  🙂  I got 33/36, which indicates that I am […]
