Oh, Interwebs!

Amazing photos of mountains of water by Ray Collins.
Found on LifeBuzz (Thanks, Margot!)
Welcome to my periodic round-up of things I've found online that make me smile, cry, laugh, think, shout, or drop my jaw. 


Books + cake = Perfect.


A woman uses her eyelids as canvases: these are great!


The Frisky's Kick-ass Woman of the Day: Mary Engelbreit, Children's Illustrator. She is causing a bit of a ruckus with her recent illustrations, posted on Facebook, in honor of the one-year anniversary of Michael Brown’s death in Ferguson:

She has faced a backlash from her fans, which makes me sad.


Mallory Ortberg at The-Toast does it again, this time with a ranking of the paintings of Mary Magdalene in order from most penitent to least.
And, if you have learned nothing else from this occasional series, it is that European Renaissance-era dudes loved nothing more than injecting sexy babes into their Biblical tableaux. So Mary Magdalene is often painted repenting of her numerous sins…sexily.    

Sexiness and repentance, by the way, are two very difficult feelings to paint simultaneously in the same person. Guess which of the two usually won out?
