Here is a list of the internet things I found interesting this week and the weekly roundup of what I did on the internets this week:
1. Video producer and father of four, Nathan Ripperger, has caught himself saying the darndest things to his kids. It’ just another day in the life of a parent, only Nathan decided to illustrate his most ‘introspective’ quips.
The series has become so popular that it has spawned a series of prints (8 x 10 and 16 x 20) that you can purchase from Ripperger’s Etsy Store. You can also view larger versions of each illustration on Nathan’s Flickr profile.
2. If you literally put your phone down on a flat surface for 10 minutes, corporate sponsors like Giorgio Armani Fragrances will donate money to the UNICEF Tap Project that will then be used towards water, sanitation and hygiene programs in the neediest countries. According to the organization, ”768 million people do not have access to safe, clean drinking water, and 2.5 billion people live without proper sanitation.” (I did it twice this morning)
4. Clap along:
5. How To Stop Giving A Fuck What People Think. Living a life that follows the ideal notions of what other people think is a terrible way to live. It makes you become the spineless spectator who waits for other people to take action first. It makes you become a follower. Worst of all, it makes you become someone who doesn’t take a stand for anything. READ THIS NOW and going forward, give ZERO FUCKS about what others think.
This week on Waldina, I celebrated the birthdays of Diana Vreeland, Elizabeth Taylor, Tony Randall, Betty Hutton, Dorothy Stratten, Zeppo Marx , Desi Arnaz, Dr. Seuss and Jim Backus. I also added Mr. Blandings Builds His Dream House to the the required viewing film series.
This week on Wasp & Pear on tumblr, I posted vintage photographs of Seattle, Hollywood, and New York, as well as continued with the Randomly Generated Wallpaper series. I celebrated the birthday of John Steinbeck and Larry Gelbart.

On @TheRealSPA on twitter, I questioned if I could finally now go back to ignoring Arizona again, I called Arizona “Uganda Lite”, I reported the breaking of my mobile phone (again), and the usual trash talk.
