  1. Hahahaha. I can’t believe you included my post up here. ;) Thank you! A truly fabulous list, though, I must say, I’m loving this cold weather! I have discovered fleece lined stockings – did anyone else know about these? BEST invention ever.

    PS. We should rename this week Celebrate the Awesomeness of New Zealand week (Hobbits and all).

    PPS. Thanks especially for the Judith Butler interview link. How had I not already read this when it was posted in 2010?? <3
