Annie’s Yellow photos rock.

I had these links partially in draft for a while and never normally include two links to the same Fluffy links but this is a lovely piece of writing from Annie on relationships that deserves attention. Annie is a writer. One of these real-life talented folks who can reach that place in your brain that makes chemicals change. No she’s not LSD. I’m certain in the next while she’ll get some kind of writing gig or gig that uses her talent at storytelling. Go Annie.

See, I like this. Practical stuff from MJ on starting your business. All the basics you need to know.

Seriously. What the fuck? Kids’ Light sabres banned by UK airport cops. Please DIGG this.
