I would rather have a mind opened by wonder than one closed by belief.

The great-great-great grandchildren of Dickens take a selfie with him on his 202nd birthday.

Although the author himself hoped to avoid such commemoration, a statue of Charles Dickens was unveiled last week just in time for his 202nd birthday. 

hahahahahah

Celebrate Valentine’s Day with Avid’s Blind Date with a Book!

This is utterly adorable — and, as team member Beth says, now we’ll never have to look for books on OKCupid again!

Hehehe Blind Book Date… I like it!

Uhm. I love “We Built This City”…hello… Didn’t you see “The Muppets”? What other song could make a cleaning montage so great?!

The year of oddities

Dude. Tumblr has so many more customizable options than it did before! It makes me want to blog again…but I think I’ve got to refocus my tumbling. I should really write more, or at least share interesting things. But for now, I’m trying to learn how to be an adult with one full-time job. And keep myself entertained during the day while at work. 

I’ve decided while 2014 is the year of the horse, it is also the year of the weird. Less censoring, more free-flowing oddities and stream-of-conscious ramblings that may eventually lead to something more interesting. For the entire month of January I was incredibly bored with myself. 2013 was an awesome year for countless reasons, so I think I’ve been underestimating 2014. But no year should go to waste. I want to rekindle my ability to entertain myself, simply in my own head…and I’m pretty easily entertained so that really shouldn’t be too much of a challenge.

Here’s to 2014!
