Pretty Things

What do we all need on a daily basis? Yeah, yeah, apart from the whole “food, water, air” triad. Well, one of my yoga teachers (via DVD only, sadly, but that still counts, right?) says, “Space” which is as good a suggestion as any. A bumper sticker on my kitchen wall says, “Chocolate” which is an excellent answer most days. “Whatever the hell gets you out of bed” also works — unless it’s an illegal substance or something which contravenes someone else’s human rights.

But one of the things I think we all need more of are pretty things to look at! Who doesn’t need something lovely to look at while cubicling the day away? (And I say this as someone who really kinda likes her cubicle.)

So here is a selection of “Pretty Thing Providers” — i.e., Tumblrs.

WhoQuotes. It’s kinda all in the name here, folks, but you get a great assortment of quotes (Whovian, of course) and images on here.

I love classic horror/sci-fi images. And the Swamp Thingy blog meets that craving beautifully; great combo of animated and static images and lots of other fun blogs to find if you enjoy link-surfing (and who doesn’t?) It’s like a daily Godzilla quotient!

Lazy Self-Indulgent Book Reviews. The Lazy Book Reviewer is neither lazy nor self-indulgent but she does give you some of the funniest, sharpest, most amusing Tumblr commentary you’re likely to get: on books, TV, movies, and her dog.

book lovers never go to bed alone. Bookshelf pron. Book pron. Bookstore pron. Are you literate? Do you have a thing for books? Then this is for you. You may wish to put something over your keyboard before you start looking at the images; drool can short out your keys, y’know.

fuck yeah dr who — while I may not agree with their spelling (I prefer “Doctor” to “Dr.”), I love what they do! Old series; new series; it’s all here.
