What I’ve been loving, linking and lomogramming this week.
- New Girl and kale chips
- No matter the filter, I think it’s impossible to photograph kale in a way that makes it look attractive.
- Random Shetland Ponies hanging out in Hereford
Last weekend, I was back home in Hereford to send off Jen before she leaves for Canada. We went out for coffee with my mum on Saturday, which was really nice, before a wander round the shops to seek out the last things she needs for her trip. Saturday night, we met up with a load of old work friends. I haven’t seen some of those guys in ages, and with babies on the way and new houses being bought, we had lots to catch up on.
This week has been crazy busy. We’re having building work done at work, so instead of my job, I’ve mostly been dragging furniture around and helping get the new showroom set up. It’s going to be good when it’s finished though. I’m moving out of the workshop and into a new office! Exciting stuff.
In other news, I am officially now part of the editorial team over at Team AWOT. I’ll be contributing articles, editing and posting submissions, and helping run the site’s Twitter, which you can follow at @awot_uk. I am so pleased to be joining to the team over there. It’s going to be loads of fun working with the other women over there.
Anyone who thinks that street harassment is a compliment needs to read this Huffington Post article. Last week in Florida, a 14 year old was run over by a man after she refused to have sex with him in exchange for $200. Oh, a compliment indeed.
I’m still on the Grand Theft Auto is misogynistic schtick, but this post from Kotaku is actually really interesting. It explores the current female characters in the game and possible directions for future characters and storylines to take that would begin to address Rockstar’s clear issues with women.
