Octopus > Your Mom

Why do I think octopuses are so amazing? Why do I insist on painting them, wearing them as jewelry, framing them to display on my walls and bookshelves, etc? Start by reading this informative, hilarious opinion piece by The Oatmeal.

Hilarity: in the form of a complaint letter to Virgin Airlines

Although this has nothing to do with craftiness, sometimes hilarity must be shared. This is one of those times.

Hands down, the world's greatest complaint letter (with pictures).

Happy Belated Bunny Day!

Considering my complete and utter lack of religious bent, Easter barely registers on my holiday radar. However, there are three things about Easter very much worth celebrating:

1. Bunnies. As a child, bunnies were totally my thing. I was bunny crazy. These days, I still hold them dear to my heart. Especially this kind of bunnies (which definitely makes my list of Top Five Favorite Animals Ever).

Angora Rabbit

2. Jelly Beans.

3. Dying eggs. My roommate extraordinaire and I created these little masterpieces. I am responsible for the top four (swirly blue/red, the owl, the paisley, and the swirly green/yellow to the right of "Jeff".) We jammed to Ray LaMontagne, Sufjan Stevens, listened to This American Life and had a ball.
