Whoa. Did you hear the Radio Lab podcast about the Japanese paper balloon bombs? The government used the jet stream winds to successfully propel unpiloted Fu-Go balloon bombs to the U.S. during WWII. When the bombs started detonating, thousands of them, the U.S. government requested that the press keep quiet for national security purposes. And they did.

This sexy legs contest addresses a very specific kind of fetish.

I feel like my grandma would have loved to wear this around the house with her little heeled maribou slippers.

Do you know about right-eye miniatures?

Vintage Dries Van Noten sweater. I have a thing for giant bows lately.

I like to shop for shoes and then not purchase them. Exhibits A-E:
Simple Mules, $130
Lace-Up Full Foot Sandal, $59
Triple Strap Oxford, $135
Wave Slide Sandal, $300
Dries Van Noten canvas wedge on eBay, $200

The Sphaerocoris Annulus is a really good bug.

I’m hoping to give birth this weekend. What are you up to?

    So the story about the balloon bombs is totally geeky for this geologist too. They figured out where they were coming from by studying the sand in the sandbags that were used as ballast. The sand was unique to a certain coastline in Japan. SAND!! crazy cool, but not as exciting as giving birth this weekend! Good luck!

    Faith, hope, and love –
    the greatest of these is love:
    jump into faith…
    and you’ll see with love.
    Doesn’t matter if you don’t believe
    (what I write).
    God believes in you.
    God bless you.
