Results May Vary

*Amazing reader Chelsea started a Tumblr inspired by Love 365! I'm so, so flattered and thrilled. It's really awesome and you should check it out!

*Are you all psyched-up for the Puppy Bowl? It's happening this Sunday at 3 PM on Animal Planet. If you won't go for the puppies, go for the kitten half-time show. (P.S. If you're in the market for a pet, these fuzzy football players are all shelter animals looking for a loving home!)

*For as little as $11, you can help an Indian girl go to school instead of be sold into sexual slavery. The Girl Store gives you the opportunity to purchase essentials like books and uniforms to help give children a chance at a brighter future.

*Gena at Choosing Raw addresses the phrase "cruelty free." What does it really mean? 

*One of the saddest things I've realized is that I'm 22 and will never dance like these incredible 8- and 9-year-olds.

*I've been hanging on to this since Thanksgiving and never incorporated into a Results May Vary. Maybe it's not "timely" anymore, but it's poignant nonetheless. Give thanks.

*The Lawrence/Julia & Julia Project is the unexpectedly hilarious blog in which a man chronicles an entire year of watching the movie Julia & Julia every damn day.

*Do we overprioritize health in our culture? Two women's studies professors say yes. (Also check out this post on the real issues we deal with when we talk about obesity).

*Oh, and finally, do check out the Post Punk Kitchen for scrumptious vegan recipes. I just got three of their cookbooks because I'm hoping to transition from lacto-ovo vegetarian to vegan over the summer, and because I've tried their peanut butter cupcakes and absolutely died (my omnivorous boyfriend claimed they were the best cupcakes he'd ever tasted). Incredible, seriously. So check out their recipes-- even if you're not vegan.

These are some of the things I'm loving lately, but results may vary. Tell me what you think in the comments!

Oh my gosh, those dancing boys are amazing! I don't think I would be that good if I practised for my whole life! Loved all the other links too. :)

My boyfriend and I saw a commercial for the Puppy Bowl today and omg. We want to see it soooo bad. Baby animals are amazing.

Do you know a way to watch it if you don't have that channel?

I know this is off-topic but how do you get your blog to look so nifty?

Jem said...

Every time you do a results may vary post- I will admit I squeal with joy- I always look forward to seeing what you will write about. I love the photograph of the ballerina on the beach. It is so beautiful and makes me want to put on my dancing shoes. :)

Laells: I know I'm too late but you can probably check for clips! There might be some on Youtube by now, too.

Jon: Hi, John! This one of the templates. I only messed with a little bit for width. I'm not a web designer by any stretch of the imagination lol. Go into "Design" and then "template designer." The template I'm using is "picture window."

Thanks to the rest, glad you enjoy these!
