Some stuff from the internet you may enjoy (and continuing the theme of having a goofy picture with these posts…)

All of us were devastated by Robin Williams’ untimely death last week. This is probably the best Robin Williams tribute I’ve seen.

You should also read Mara Wilson’s post.

Super cute dog comic.

My friend Laura created a very important tumblr.

Maisie Williams sees Saved By The Bell for the first time.

I want to give this one hour dress tutorial a try.

I liked this post about not complaining during pregnancy.

And this surprise wedding post from March is adorable.

I’m planning on getting one of these travel wedding dress boxes for our big day. Anyone else travelling with their dress? When I worked for Air NZ we’d often hang them up in business class, but I think I’ll take it in one of these to be sure it stays with me.

I’ve always wanted to write a novel. Writebox looks like a great tool.

And as always, The Toast delivers – Ayn Rand’s The Devil Wears Prada.

He ran from the Nazis for a decade.

A man-hunt for a man part.

Dave Barry reads 50 Shades of Grey.

It’s fascinating to look into the lives of people in Iran, somewhere I will never go.

This tongue-in-cheek Buzzfeed article is pretty great.

An old prank, but I just saw it.  Kiwi blokes plumb their mate’s place with beer.

Karen Carpenter sung beautifully by a blind woman in the Philippines.

I’ve never been a big Zach Galifinakis fan, but his Between Two Ferns with Obama is pretty neat.

And I loved this stunning NY Times piece by a father who reached his autistic son using Disney movies.

103am Stuff I enjoyed around the internets lately (all open in new tabs/windows)…

Watch six minutes of really weird Japanese commercials. (Oh and Previously.tv is awesome, btw).

I’m never going to get tired of squirrels. I can’t wait to share the story/pictures of the squirrels I fed (!) in the Botanics a few weeks ago.

I re-posted this poem on my tumblr the other day and I think it’s beautiful.

I love the New Girl autotune.

I wanna do this to a t-shirt.

The Civilian (New Zealand’s version of The Onion, so if you’re not Kiwi, you may not get it) really makes me laugh sometimes.

Like hot drinks? Like cats?

Fascinating article about an unconventional video game that I will never, ever play.

Amy Poehler + Game of Thrones = win.

It’s fake, but still hilarious.

I tried to get #sweatybaws trending and failed miserably. Sweaty baws!

Man on toilet attacked by fox. With hilarious re-enactment photos.

High five to Taylor Swift for this one,

well done, Morrisons,

of course even more well done, Andy Murray (squeeze that toothpaste!)…

…and freaking huge kudos to Matthew Perry.
