Obama’s one-liners during his speech at the White House Correspondents Dinner.
-You can’t be tired of London. Samuel Johnson said, “when you’re tired of London, you’re tired of life.” -Obviously, the man was never in a long-distance relationship.

Few writers equal Austen in her ability to sum up a character in a pithy sentence or two. Below are some of her most devastating assessments.
10. John Dashwood, Sense and Sensibility
“He was not an ill-disposed young man, unless to be rather cold-hearted and rather selfish is to be ill-disposed.”
9. Lady Bertram, Mansfield Park
“She was a woman who spent her days in sitting nicely dressed on a sofa, doing some long piece of needlework, of little use and no beauty, thinking more of her pug than her children, but very indulgent to the latter when it did not put herself to inconvenience.”
8. Sir John and Lady Middleton, Sense and Sensibility
“However dissimilar in temper and outward behavior, they strongly resembled each other in that total want of talent and taste.”
7. Mr. Bingley’s sisters, Pride and Prejudice
“Not deficient in good humor when they pleased, nor in the power of being agreeable where they chose it; but proud and conceited. They were rather handsome, had been educated in one of the first private seminaries in town, had a fortune of twenty thousand pounds, were in the habit of spending more than they ought, and of associating with people of rank; and were therefore in every respect entitled to think well of themselves and meanly of others.”
6. Lady Catherine DeBourgh, Pride and Prejudice
“She was a most active magistrate in her own parish, the minutest concerns were carried to her … and whenever the cottagers were disposed to be quarrelsome, discontented or too poor, she sallied forth into the village to settle their differences, silence their complaints, and scold them into harmony and plenty.”
5. Margaret Dashwood, Sense and Sensibility
“Margaret, the other sister, was a well-disposed girl; but as she had already imbibed a good deal of Marianne’s romance, without having much of her sense, she did not at thirteen bid fair to equal her sisters at a more advanced period of life.”
4. Mrs. Elton, Emma
“Self-important, presuming, familiar, ignorant and ill-bred. She had a little beauty and a little accomplishment, but so little judgment that she thought herself coming with superior knowledge of the world, to enliven and improve a country neighborhood.”
3. Emma Woodhouse, Emma
“Emma Woodhouse, handsome, clever and rich, with a comfortable home and happy disposition, seemed to unite some of the best blessings of existence. … The real evils of Emma’s situation were the power of having rather too much her own way, and a disposition to think a little too well of herself.”
2. Mr. Collins, Pride and Prejudice
“Mr. Collins was not a sensible man, and the deficiency of nature had been but little assisted by education or society. … The subjection in which his father had brought him up had given him originally great humility of manner, but it was now a good deal counteracted by the self-conceit of a weak head.”
1. Mrs. Bennet, Pride and Prejudice
“She was a woman of mean understanding, little information, and uncertain temper. When she was discontented, she fancied herself nervous. The business of her life was to get her daughters married; its solace was visiting and news.”
yeah, she’s just a romance novelist
For almost every day last month Malaysian artist/architect Hong Yi (who often goes by the nickname Red) created a fun illustration made with common (and occasionally not so common) food. Her parameters were simple: the image had to be comprised entirely of food and the only backdrop could be a white plate. With that in mind Yi set out to create landscapes, animals, homages to pop culture, and even a multi-frame telling of the three little pigs. The project, which still appears to be ongoing, has been documented heavily around the web, but if you haven’t seen it all head over to her Facebook and read an interview on designboom. Photos will also be appearing on her Instagram at @redhongyi.
What’s your favorite term of venery? We enjoy of a shrewdness of apes, though a kindle of kittens is always nice to have around the house.
I’ve always loved murder of crows, but barren of mules and singular of boars are just the right amount of confusing/seemingly contradictory.
Everything we do is a choice. Oatmeal or cereal. Highway or side streets. Kiss her or keep her. We make choices and we live with the consequences. If someone gets hurt along the way we ask for forgiveness. It’s the best anyone can do.
