"Mom did say that she was willing to pay for the haircut, but she didn’t say how much, and now you’re stuck with me. I’ve just sent some money - my own haircuts cost $20 (including a tip), so I started there. I realize that you women need to spend a little more for style, so I’ve added $7.50 to cover that.

Elena Shumilova is a Russian photographer who takes these beautiful photos of her growing sons. Most of the shots were taken on their own farm, with their ducklings, rabbits, and dogs.
Today some guy in the quad called out what sounded like a catcall until I realized he’d said “You have a very elegant jacket!” After I thanked him I heard he and his friends chatting about it like “Man, if I walked out of my apartment every day in that jacket I’d feel like I ran an international drug cartel,” and the whole thing is my favourite compliment in a while.
Watched some wicked Jan Švankmajer shorts in class, I really love this one. (mildly nsfw)
I’ve Pavlov’d my dog into running to the door whenever I put socks on. She’s yet to master the words for walk, park, and outside, but socks get her every time.
Rugby came up in conversation today and I miss it a lot. Gonna try to find a rec league this summer and see if my knee can handle it, even just practices would be a nice change from nothing.
Also that led to looking at old pictures from high school, and god what a majestic game.
for ten years now, leonid tishkov has traveled the world with his moon. here we see him in arctic svalbard magdalene fjord (1,5,7), new zealand, near rangitito (second and fourth photo, taken by marcus williams), the tian shang observatory near the border between china and kyrgyzstan (third photo, by po-i chen) and moscow (sixth and eighth photos taken by boris bendikov)
"the moon is a shining point that brings people together from different countries, of different nationalities and cultures - and everyone who gets in its orbit does not forget it ever. it gives fairytale and poetry in our prosy and mercantile world," leonid writes. "the moon helps us to overcome our loneliness in the universe by uniting us around it."
leonid adds, “the ancient ural peoples who lived in my home told a fairy tale about how a shaman goes into the next world, illuminating the path of the moon. so in all of my photos, i can be seen in my late father’s cloak, because he travels with me in this way.”
Today a prof of mine mentioned a drag king friend whose stage name is Titus Androgynous and that’s the actual greatest wordplay I’ve ever heard.
