Things Just Because - The Rice Bucket Challenge

image

Well this is a nice twist: “Manju Kalanidhi, a 38-year-old journalist from Hyderabad who reports on the global rice market, put her own twist on the challenge. She calls her version the Rice Bucket Challenge, but don’t worry, no grains of rice went to waste.

Instead, they went to the hungry.”

Cutting the cheese never looked (or smelled) this good.

Stop cutting your cheese wrong.

Bob’s Burgers won the Emmy Award for Outstanding Animated Program - I knew this show was great. Why? Because in Tina, we trust.

Things Just Because - Julep!

image

Hello Tumblr world, meet Julep! The new addition to our family, and quite possibly the cutest in the house.

She’s a Doberman mix (maybe a bit of German Shepherd?) we adopted over the weekend from the SPCA, and while they called her a “delicate flower,” she’s starting to come out of her shell little by little. She’s still not a fan of new things/new dogs, and will need some socializing, but she’s definitely going to encourage us to be more active. For now, she’s a gangly teenager (7 mons. old) who is still getting to know us and the house. I’m sure you’ll see plenty more pics posted here soon enough.

Books on the bookshelves
And stacked on the floor
Books kept in baskets
And propped by the door
Books in neat piles
And in disarray
Books tucked in closets
And books on display
Books filling crannies
And books packed in nooks
Books massed in windows
And mounded in crooks
Libraries beckon
And bookstores invite
But book-filled rooms welcome
Us back home at night!
Things Just Because - Hop Shack

image

Are you into craft beer? I know San Francisco has a some nice breweries, but it sounds like Hop Shack is going to cover a great deal more.

So what’s the point? The company is hoping to educate beer fans about where the beer is brewed, ingredients, beer similarities, etc. Like a mini encyclopedia of beer in app form. Sounds good to me.

If you’re so inclined, check them out on Kickstarter:

Completely unrelated to anything, I like that they’re from Louisiana.

Happy Friday!

Things Just Because

Would you eat this pear? Even if it came in the shape of small baby? I guess China already had the “peach butts” craze, so why not throw in some pear babes, too.
