Friday Fragments - Better Late than Never!

Friday Fragments are bits and pieces of your week that are usually brief; too short for a stand-alone post, but too good to discard. Collect humorous observations, "Heard" items, and other small gems and put them together in a Friday Fragments post.

Friday Fragments are the brainchild of Mrs.4444 and you can find more at Half Past Kissin' Time.


I'm a little late today, but it's still FRIDAY. So, here are my fragments, and I'm freakishly awake even though it's late, so once I hit publish I'm off to visit YOUR Friday Fragments posts and see what's going on.


I'm a big fan of portraits, and Entertainment Weekly often has some really good celebrity portraits. I was browsing the portraits from Comic Con on their website, and this one caught my attention. Beautiful.

So, we're moving. Once we made the decision, it happened pretty fast. I have a whole post to write about it soon, but for now I just need to say that I HATE PACKING. I am looking around my house wanting to do it, but at the same time, it's such a pain in the butt. I was hoping that I would not be moving again for a VERY long time, but obviously that didn't work out the way I thought. Send me some kind of 'be really productive' vibes if you have them, okay?


Do you ever look at Improv Everywhere's website? Their most recent video is "Say Something Nice." Take a look.

Pretty great. Spreading the positive is ALWAYS a good thing, isn't it? To Infinity and Beyond!


Sam got his 'back to school' haircut this year - he was quite shaggy.

He told me that morning he wanted to get all his hair cut off. I was kind of surprised, because I've asked him a couple of times this summer if he wanted Daddy to buzz his hair and he said no. So I asked if he was sure, and he said yes, he wanted all his hair cut off so it would be like Daddy's. AWWW! It's nice being able to see his face again, but they always look SO much older after a haircut!


Here are a couple of things that made me laugh out loud this week.

Another thing that might make you laugh if you have some spare time is reading bad boyfriend stories over at Temerity Jane. I just started reading her blog earlier this year, and it quickly became one of my favorites. She always makes me laugh, and I can totally relate to so much of what she says.


This week I also read about how PETA has decided to have a Porn Site. You guys... Something is really wrong with PETA. So, basically they are going to put all the naked photos they've taken up.. and randomly insert horrible animal cruelty photos? I don't get it. Then today I randomly came across this old blog post about how earlier this year for 'infertility awareness week' they were offering free vasectomy (coupons?) to men who had recently had their pets neutered. Way to OFFEND people by not understanding the meaning of infertility and how hard it is for people. I am just as against animal cruelty as the next guy, but I think that PETA should take a good, long look at their methods of trying to expose the plight of animals and convince people to change it. Their message is so lost at this point it's not even funny.


All righty, I think that's it for this week. Hope everyone has a fantastic weekend!

That angel picture cracked me up! 
The PETA people are so warped.  They are doing so much more harm than good for the animals they claim to love.

That angel made me laugh!!!  So funny!!  I love little boys in buzz cuts and it TOTALLY makes them look older!!

I am so sorry you have to move.  Packing is no fun!!  I remember the time we moved across town in Chicago.  We got to the point where we didn't want to do the 3 flights anymore and just stepped out onto our balcony and tossed bedding and bags of clothes over at the truck ;-)  I would happily come help pack, I actually love unpacking!!  I guess I have to, right?? :-) 

Very little respect for PETA.  There are better ways to get the message out about animal cruelty.

Moving is a huge chore.....good luck with the packing.
I think the buzz cut is as cute as can be.

I love portraits too..people are just beautiful with all their differences! :0)

That Improv Everywhere video made me tear up, I love hearing people be positive. We all have it in us, it just needs to be remembered and encouraged.

That is a very pretty picture of Rutina. Are you a fan of True Blood?

My aunt who was like my best friend growing up (she was 11 years older) used to use my hands to slap my face (lightly) and tell me "Stop hitting yourself." And I'd laugh and laugh.

I'm in your boat with Peta and animal cruelty. I'm not in anyway for animals being hurt but I don't believe people should be cruel to other humans as well. Their tactics are hurtful.

great FF post!

The portrait of Rutina Wesley is beautiful and the cartoon made me crap up. I can't watch the video because I'm at work, but I'll check it out when I get home.

Oh, packing is such a chore.  I am so horrible at it - just toss everything in and hope nothing breaks.  THEN I think I'll slowly unpack it all so I can go through and get rid of stuff we don't use and I never end up doing it because all I want to do is get unpacked and put everything away!  Good vibes for you for sure!! 

Spunkydiva said...

Totally agree with you on PETA.  You need to be nice to everyone, not just animals.  Not all people are going to 'get it', but that doesn't make it all right to vindictive {which I think they are a lot of the time} to try and get you point across. 

Hope your packing went/is going well.  Think of it as a decluttering excercise.  everything you give to charity or the trash can, you don't have to unpack, LOL!

PETA never ceases to surprise me.

I'm confused about the mustache thing...please advise...Thanks :)
