It’s been a while since I’ve had a light-hearted post so now seems like a good time to write one.
Let’s start with treehouses: http://www.complexmag.ca/art-design/2012/05/gallery-15-awesome-treehouses#16
Some of these are overexposed on the Internet, but this is the first time I’ve seen number 15, which I quite like. And it might have been just yesterday I came across this whole other kind of treehouse: http://abcnews.go.com/GMA/video/tiny-door-tree-opens-imaginations-san-francisco-community-18845366
I don’t do whimsy much, but I think that little door is just a heckuva lot of fun. Wish I’d thought of it.
Ever been to Bora Bora? Me neither. But we can always dream: http://blog.otel.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/11/four-seasons-bora-bora.jpg
Darth Vader remains awesome: http://www.buzzfeed.com/donnad/darth-vader-would-have-been-a-great-dad (the book this guy wrote about Vader and Luke is cute, too, and I think I saw it at Coles).
Holy sweet mother of awesome, there’s a PB & J day…and it’s today! (They call it jelly but we know it’s jam: http://www.buzzfeed.com/rachelysanders/ways-to-eat-peanut-butter-and-jelly-recipes)
Zines are wicked. You should make one. These people did: http://www.torontozinelibrary.org
So what if Africa got lions, leopards and cheetahs? We have these: http://www.richarddumoulin.com/photos/wildlife-nature/animals-animaux/Grizzly_bear-Ours_grizzly-Ursus_arctos_horribilis/Grizzly_bear-Ours_Grizzly-_Ursus%20arctos_horribilis__IMG_3240.jpg
(Cheetahs are pretty awesome, though: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7_iAQXyDJns)

I picked up a diorama by this guy at the Autumn House art auction – love it: http://www.nsfolkartfestival.com/include/barry_colpitts.htm
Wanna build a dory? Well, here’s a second excuse to travel to the South Shore: http://www.doryshop.com/classes.html
My car won’t need replacing for another couple years at least, but it doesn’t hurt to start researching now: http://www.mortarinvestments.eu/products/tanks-2/t-72-42#currency=USD
I’m joking, of course. Too impractical. This is a much better choice for errands into town: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=STzZM7jZaEs
Stephen King is underrated: http://www.thenation.com/article/165310/you-cant-always-get-what-you-want-stephen-king#

Fifth wheels are awesome, but can you pull them behind a motorcycle? http://www.golittleguy.com/teardrops/
Finally, the news you’ve been waiting for – series 10 is out this month (I tried to get it on the front page of the paper, but I was overruled): http://www.brickset.com/browse/themes/?subtheme=Series%2010&theme=Collectable+Minifigures
