Yeahhhhhhhh! It’s Thursdayyyyy! Are you excited?! Ok, well I tried. It’s been a while since I did a TILT post, so I thought, heck… why not? Here’s some crap I recently enjoyed and now you’re about to enjoy it too.
This Star Wars themed Meyers-Briggs personality type chart from Geek In Heels. I recently took two different Myers-Briggs sort of tests, and one said I was an INFP and the other said I am an INTJ. So I’m either Luke Skywalker or Palpatine… I’m going to blame that on being a Gemini, because I can sort of see both of those personality types in myself. In the past, I was always an INFP so the recent possibility of being INTJ is quite the development, but I surely have changed over the past few years.
This bug print dress from ModCloth is pretty freakin’ adorable. Beetledress, Beetledress, Beetledress! Huh. I was hoping that would make it appear in my closet, but nope.
This video about the Mantis Shrimp had me laughing for a good portion of the night. (Also check out this comic from The Oatmeal about Mantis Shrimp… they’re CRAZY!)
Morrissey sweaters from Viva Moz. I’m normally not a sweater-wearing person, but I need several of these… in case you were wondering what to get me for Xmas.
This site, what-would-i-say.com creates Facebook status updates for you by mashing up previous updates and comments with amusing (and sometimes eerily accurate) results. A few of my favorite funny ones were:
“That was the following Pilgrimage to Portlandia. Stay away from the 90s”
“err… emphatic suggestions… anyway”
“Alk3 put out”
“I don’t want to marry Zak Bagans‘ hair”
“Andru Bemis. Now, HE’S got an asshole.”
“I’m now being thrown in pachyderm prison, which I get”
“I have to use the unborn babies”
These two blog posts from Hyperbole and a Half about phases of depression.
Part 1: Adventures in Depression
Part 2: Depression Part Two
It’s definitely the most honest, accurate, relatable way of describing it I have ever read, and I think maybe the semi-humorous way it’s handled would make it more palatable to people who have never been depressed or don’t understand it. I’ve always felt like an idiot trying to explain what it feels like (or doesn’t feel like) and she does a great job. I especially liked the part where she talked about consciously trying to make the right facial expressions. And all the other parts. I think it’s a really important read for everyone.
And on a lighter note here’s a conversation that I had with a friend’s daughter the other day:
“How old are you?”
“I’m almost 6, how old are you?”
“How old do you think I am?”
“700 years old because you’re a vampire, because you look like a vampire.”
… I’ll take it as a compliment? I was trying not to bust up laughing because she seemed like she was being really serious.
