We went to the beach last week. Jared's employer owns a condo on the South Carolina shore and employees can stay there throughout the year.

The prime attractions, for us, were ocean waves right outside of the window, oodles of free time to read and do crossword puzzles-- always nerding up the joint-- weather at least thirty degrees warmer than at home, and the relative proximity to Charleston, where we honeymooned four years ago and where we were able to enjoy a lovely re-visit. (If you are ever there, eat at Basil!)

First the funnies.

Lolmythesis, where doctoral theses are boiled down to their essences. (Very funny but some language.)

Wondermark has suggestions for the Olympics.

If you've ever wondered how British cows moo, Patrick Stewart can tell you.

Love everything on this Pinterest board.

5)

Fifty things we didn't know this time last year. Cool.

Yes, Matt Walsh again. I do not apologize: Chivalry Is Out of Style. "Men should carry bags, and hold doors, and pull out chairs, and offer seats to women, not because women are incapable of standing or opening their own doors, but because of what these acts represent — what they say."

I wrote a guest post for The Mirror Magazine this week: "Paper Bags and Lipstick."

It's something of a followup to "Pretty Special Dust," a post I wrote last fall.
