I'll go...as long as there are plenty of my favorite math books.

We rather fancy dipping our toes in the water and relaxing on this white sandy beach...

Ooo, and that's Lena Horne (https://www.flickr.com/photos/vieilles_annonces/1294694625/) to Audrey Hepburn's left.  I'd recognize that winning smile anywhere!

The back of Theron's head and free books.
 
This group of IBL practitioners will be opening the 2014 Legacy of RL Moore conference. 

If you watch the second video, then at time stamp about 0:36 you get to see the back of my head! (so exciting)

Hmmmm, this conversation happened today:

High school junior boy (stress on 'boy'): Did you cut your hair?
Me: No just snipped some wayward hunks.
HSJB: Well, you look fresh!
Me: (rolled eyes heavenward)
...
HSJB: Okay, girl!
Me: I'm not your girl.
HSJB: You ARE my girl. We can't be friends?
Me: No, you're a child. I am your tutor and an adult.

Joe will be at this kid's next few sessions. We'll see if he can control himself in my husband's presence. Otherwise, he'll be finished.

Romulus Whitaker (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Romulus_Whitaker) has been searching for crocodiles at least 20 feet long (PBS Nature:Supersize Crocs).  He didn't find any in the PBS episode Supersize Croc , but this week he has his answer.

OOOOO! Haven't seen these before.  Had to read this first:  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Degree_(graph_theory)

Every kid should try this!
 
This is fun way to play around with and construct graphical degree sequences,, which I had never heard of before!

Perfect depiction of the Nimrods of the world and they used The Wilhelm!  The Wilhelm Scream Compilation
 
Via a Huffington Post piece entitled "Everything Wrong With Humanity, In One Short Animation."

Apparently, this came out in 2012.

It seems worthwhile to include the link below. The report deserves its own post, but I'm presuming that the news is no longer much of a surprise to anyone who has been following the news anytime over the last few decades.

I like this!  My first favorite definition:

http://www.dictionaryofobscuresorrows.com/post/57250260260/vellichor

n. the strange wistfulness of used bookstores, which are somehow infused with the passage of time—filled with thousands of old books you’ll never have time to read, each of which is itself locked in its own era, bound and dated and papered over like an old room the author abandoned years ago, a hidden annex littered with thoughts left just as they were on the day they were captured.
 
Words are sometimes enough, but there is not enough of them.
