Friday Links XLVII (Last of 2012)

“The friend is the man who knows all about you, and still likes you.”
~ Elbert Hubbard

It’s after midnight and therefore technically the wrong day, but here are your links anyway.  I had to stay a bit after at work to finish up some chores (bless the long weekend) and then had a last minute chance to hang out with an old friend before she hopped back to teach English in South Korea again for goodness knows how long.  But the minions will not be denied!

Beefsteak is her mainstay!” is now a Small Dog Inc. approved catchphrase.  Ten points to the first duckling to employ it in everyday conversation and report back.

And in other interesting women from history news, there’s this lady.

These are all sorts of adorable.

Sorry for partyrocking?  (Honestly, people, stay off the UNESCO world heritage sites!)

Apparently, grenade launchers were turned in.  I have friends who range in opinions from “You can pry my gun from my cold, freedom loving fingers, you hippie!” to “Make love not war, man,” so I’d like to hear the minion coterie’s thoughts.

I have heard of this, but I still find it a funny problem.  The title rather sums it up for me.

Still in the mood to shop, but trying to balance it with New Year resolutions to be a better person?  Behold the solution to your dilemma.

So, we’ve discussed how I’m not a purist and love a good adaptation – here is a rather clever one in my opinion.  No joke, I took the whole series in in two sittings last weekend.  Start at number one and enjoy.
