month of awareness

October is, among other things, Domestic Violence Awareness Month. the more you know. About three years ago, one of the people who works in the medical school area of my job decided to honor the month with a photo installation. She went around to all of the departments and took pictures of its members wearing purple, the color of domestic violence…

linky dinkys!

please excuse the title. i’m corny and it’s late. It amazes me how some weeks I am a fountain of things to say, ideas, pieces of wisdom and general hilarity. Other weeks I’m.. meh. I still don’t have much to say, but I’ve been poking around the internet and wanted to share some things that I’ve found. The only dairy…

Jenny knows what’s up

This is going to be a really quick bonus Jonas post. I was going through my reader and saw that the hilarious Jenny Lawson, aka The Bloggess, had made a post about the “death” of blogging.
