What a strange afternoon. We just had a thunderstorm complete with lightning and rain, while the sun was happily shining outside. Durban weather has been particularly bizarre the last few weeks that I really don't know what to wear on any given day! Thursday actually felt like the return of winter! Anyway, enough chit chat about the weather, here is Things I Love #20:

The Oatmeal is on of my favourite time wasting sites on the internet. Here is a handy guide to preparing your pets for war.

You've got to love some of the stuff you can find on Tumblr...like Cats That Look Like Pin Up Girls. Hilarious!

I love this Flying House photo series by Laurent Chehere. So unusual and whimsical.
Sakir Gokcebag makes the most amazing installations using toilet paper.
Here is a preview of the Apocalypse 3-inch Dunny series. I wish for this one:
This list of things that would happen in a perfect world has got pretty much everything covered. I especially like the ones about texts and movie sequels. Oh and the one about everything coming in your favourite colours!
Kate MccGwire is an artist who "probes the beauty inherent in duality, exploring the play of opposites - at an aesthetic, intellectual and visceral level - that characterises the way we conceive the world." Her work is definitely worth a look.
I wish I was more competent in the kitchen because I'd really like to make these dumplings. Yum!
