Friday Favorites

Another Friday, another round-up of tidbits from around the web. Enjoy!

I never knew that the fashion industry was so salacious, it is hard to see past the glitz and wonder what is happening behind the scenes. I will have to read this book to find out more, I guess it shouldn’t come as any surprise that someone is being exploited in such an opulent industry.

I actually read something similar many years ago and always laugh at the poor fools frantically pushing the ‘Walk’ buttons πŸ˜€ My question is though, why waste the money to install buttons that are just for show? Seems silly and very American. Also, what if you are running from a serial killer and your elevator is just chalk full of placebo buttons?!

What did we even do before we Googled everything? We Asked Jeeves, duh πŸ˜€ Seriously though, I actually get annoyed when someone asks me a question that they could have Googled!

I wonder how many crimes would be thwarted if the perpetrator stopped to think about the fallout of their actions. Maybe when you feel that you hate something so much and you are to the point of killing, it doesn’t matter to you anymore? I can’t imagine. I was having a discussion with a friend who is Hmong-American, she said to me that it is easy for someone who has never experienced racism to see that it exists. But it’s also easy to overlook it when you simply aren’t a racist. When I leave my home, I see Americans and guess I am just naive to assume that’s what every other true American sees.

I have been curious about these Gravity Blankets since ever! I am not an insomniac, I can be asleep in minutes but these sound so cozy. My concern is that I have a small cat who likes to burrow under the blankets and I feel like that would be dangerous if I was not home. Has anyone tried one of these?

Crack me up, I love the candid photo posing πŸ˜€ I hope that it is left intact!

Can we see the freaking receipts already?! It’s all allegedly that influencer and supposedly this company, I need some proof! Everyone is having a fit over influencer’s offering this service but have brands paid for it and if so, who?

The leaders of the Catholic church have become nothing but an embarrassment to the congregation and it’s only within the last decade their crimes have been so widely exposed. Any person in a position of power within the last 30 years should be ousted, immediately.

I fee like the Syrian crisis falls in and out of the mainstream media spotlight, I don’t understand how it has gone on for so long. While we are ousting incompetent morons, let’s clean house at the UN too.

Hey, Starbucks – maybe all of those millions of non-recyclable paper cups sitting in landfills are contributing to the unseasonably warm temps. Global warming aside, it is legit too early to be pedaling the PSL – have some decency.

I hope that you have a lovely weekend!

    Agreed on the Google thing for sure! The other day an older coworker started a rant about how “young people” just Google everything. After a bit she asked a question and I went “you know where you could easily find the answer? Google”. Haha it was great. Thanks for sharing this great round up!

      Haha! Hilarious but seriously, there are so many resources out there and so much information available to us than even a decade ago and people don’t use it! Drives me nuts. Thank you πŸ™‚
