This is my new most favourite site.

I could listen to this forever, I swear. I need it to play by my bed all night.
This is my new favourite thing: Globe Genie. Transports you to a randomly chosen place in the world via googlemaps. It's fantastic. I enjoy the back roads in the middle of nowhere quite a lot.

(Now if only it could physically teleport me there as well.)
I just stumbled on this page of old (mostly) candid photos of movie stars, and they're so lovely. There's lots of Gregory Perk, Katharine Hepburn (♥), Audrey Hepburn, Elizabeth Taylor, Frank Sinatra and others. The one of Peck and Ava Gardner fishing might be my favourite.

(And Gregory Peck sitting and reading that book? Oh lord, what a handsome man he was.)

Here is another, including very early Marilyn, Fred Astaire, Lauren Bacall, Rita Hayworth, Marlene Dietrich...

Oh, Ava ♥

A post just of candid Marilyn, one for Katharine, and (for you, Cath!) Audrey

I am made quite happy by all this :)
Wikipedia articles on things that I think are interesting.

Why? Uh, I don't know. Because they're sitting in my bookmarks of late and I'm sharing like the kind soul I pretend to be?

Things I would have posted had I remembered their names: the spark plug fossil, the Egyptian scientific clock, the bug that eats the fishes tongue and replaces it. Yeah, you all know what those things are, right, and I can't be bothered to Google
