But I always have time to screw around online, especially while watching the Olympics! There was so much awesome ice dancing and ice skating last week, clearly the highlight of the Winter Olympics.
Biggest Laugh: There have been so many amazing parodies of the amazing song "Let It Go" from the Disney movie Frozen. With all the crazy weather, an Ohio weatherman put together the most charming, the most earnest parody, telling drivers "Just Don't Go."
Best Frozen Analysis: Speaking of Frozen, the Internet is undecided on how feminist or unfeminist the movie is. I've stayed out of it, aside from sharing well-written articles on the subject. A major critique is the lack of POC in the film, an issue Disney still hasn't overcome. While the all-white cast is problematic in and of itself, the blind refusal to acknowledge that maybe Frozen could have included at least ONE POC in the film is a disgusting example of white privilege and racism. I found this great post on tumblr explaining how crazy the debate has gotten.
Biggest Literary and Historical Discovery: We've all heard of the famous six-word story by Earnest Hemingway. "For Sale, Baby Shoes, Never Worn." Except, it turns out Hemingway didn't actually write it! This why I always do my best to google famous quotations and find multiple sources before I quote them in my blog.
Best Mailbox Surprise: About a month ago, I signed up for Influenster, a network that connects brands and bloggers. This week I received my very first VoxBox, the J'Adore VoxBox. Clearly I was pretty excited that my first VoxBox had a French theme. Anyway, keep an eye out in the next two weeks for my reviews! Meanwhile, check out the pictures I've taken on instagram!
