algernonmoncrieff:

I’m sure you already know about this Louisa May Alcott quote, but just in case: “I am more than half-persuaded that I am a man’s soul put by some freak of nature into a woman’s body … because I have fallen in love with so many pretty girls and never once the least bit with any man.”

EVEN WITH ALL THEIR SCIENCE THEY CAN’T EXPLAIN THIS

Yoko Ono’s “Cleaning Pieces”

1 Share

acehotel:

CLEANING PIECE I 

Write down a sad memory. 

Put it in a box. 

Burn the box and sprinkle the ashes in the field. 

You may give some ashes to a friend who shared the sadness. 


CLEANING PIECE II 

Make a numbered list of sadness in your life. 

Pile up stones corresponding to those numbers. 

Add a stone, each time there is sadness. 

Burn the list, and appreciate the mount of stones for its beauty. 

Make a numbered list of happiness in your life. 

Pile up stones corresponding to those numbers. 

Add a stone, each time there is happiness. 

Compare the mount of stones to the one of sadness. 


CLEANING PIECE III 

Try to say nothing negative about anybody. 

a) For three days 

b) For forty-five days 

c) For three months 

See what happens to your life. 


CLEANING PIECE IV 

Write down everything you fear in life. 

Burn it. 

Pour herbal oil with a sweet scent on the ashes. 


CLEANING PIECE V 

Let a list of arbitrary names come into your mind as you go to sleep. 

Say “bless you” after each name. 

Do this with speed, by keeping a constant rhythm, so, in no way, you would hesitate to bless them.

MeFi: Urban and Urbane Crows Are With Us

1 Share
Crows, and all corvids actually, fascinate me. It seems as though a new facet of corvid behavior is discovered every week or so, and this article is a good summary of what's been learned so far and how the scientists go about learning and testing.

My husband doesn’t believe me that shaving your legs is difficult and time consuming. So long story short he is about to shave his legs for the first time.

Update: he is part way through one leg and regretting his decision. I got him to switch from his men’s razor to my woman razor (his is for face shaving) and it’s going slightly better.

He is hating shaving his legs. HATING it.

Update:

My husband from the shower: how many notes does your post have?

Me: roughly one for every YEAR you have been in that shower!

Update:

BEFORE:

AFTER:

He says it was ridiculous and he can’t imagine having to do it again in a few days time, it’s much harder than shaving his face (he had previously claimed they would be abut the same). He says he feels he has learned a lesson!

Edit: He also pulled a muscle while shaving his legs! He said it was like exercise. “Yoga in the shower with razors” indeed!

Update: he has been rubbing his legs together in bed for ten minutes.

Honestly, this feels like it could have been an actual part of that story. Bilbo wakes up to find that he’s made some agreement with a bunch of dwarves, and while he was asleep they assembled his new dresser.
