Just for Fun

a well-penned (imaginary) toddler

I love the internet for all sorts of reasons.  But last week, I loved it a whole lot more when I saw some quick wit and a sharp tongue being put to good use on Pinterest.  Tiffany Beveridge has created a board called “My Imaginary Well-Dressed Toddler Daughter“.  Her page utilizes the now ubiquitous high-fashion editorials for children as documentation of her fictional toddler daughter, Quinoa.  Hitting on just about every upper-class white person trend, Quinoa is living the high-life.  She is the perfectly curated organic-eating, vinyl-listening, photo-styling, sartorial little girl… with damn funny satire to boot.  Kudos Mrs. Beveridge… kudos, indeed.

Here are a few of my favorites!

Imaginary Toddler

first day of spring

The weather was simply marvelous today.  Although I’ve been crunching numbers for the majority of my waking hours, I kicked off a little early today to make my trip to the track count.  I was even inspired to run the stands with the warm sun on my face and cool north wind blowing my hair.  I have said it a thousand times, but there really is nothing quite like Texas in the spring.

This photo collage of Olympic fingernails made me smile.  See original and more Olympic coverage here.
