Some kind of Easter baptism service happened on the beach approximately 6 yards from our front door at 9am.  This thing had everything: people dressed all in white, dramatic hats, walking out into the ocean, and crazy awesome singing included.  It might be the most surreal thing that has ever woken me up.

To bring attention to the unveiling of its 2014 list of the “World’s Most Beautiful,” set for April 23, People brings us back in time, showing us what some of the best-looking celebrities looked like years or even decades ago.

I find this horrifying.

Illustration of girl reading about Jonah by Dorothy P. Lathrop from Hitty - Her First Hundred Years by Rachel Field. The MacMillan Company, New York, 1929. First edition. Classic Tale of Phoebe Preble’s Doll. Newbery Award.
"There was a painful picture of a man being swallowed by a large fish."


I have very nostalgic memories of reading this book, but we don’t own it so I totally forgot the title, the author, etc.  All I remembered was the doll’s name started with an H.  A couple years ago, I spent a whole work day figuring out what the book was, and I did it, and the library I worked at had a copy, and it was basically the best day.

I made the ugliest, most depressing deviled eggs this weekend. It was bad enough to pretty much cancel out the amazing spudnuts I made earlier in the week.
