Fanciful Delights for April 30, 2016


Dear Internet, Here are a compendium of things that struck my fancy this week. x0x0, lisa

Fanciful Delights

þ Before there was Chuck Norris, there were The Forgotten Female Action Stars of the 1910s
þ My paternal grandmother was from Mull, so that’s one of my connections to Scotland. (FUN FACT. My paternal grandmother was born in 1880 or 1890, I forget which. (My dad was born in 1927.)) I present to you 12 maps that show a variety of geographical and population information in / of Scotland.
þ If you’re not hip to your feminist history, Mary Wollstonecraft is considered to be the first modern feminist whose work, A Vindication of the Rights of Woman, was published in 1792. You may know her as the mother of Mary Shelley, the author of Frankenstein. To commerate Wollstonecraft, McSweeney’s Internet Tendency has recently published Women Who Should Be Pretty Pissed Off: Vindicating Mary Wollstonecraft.
þ Around Easter is when I start getting obnoxious about Peeps and next year, I’m totally making peepshi!
þ I am partially obsessed with French way of life which has recently been intensified by this curated link collection of 63 Things You Can Do Like a French Girl. (Psst: I’ve started reading How to Be Parisian Wherever You Are: Love, Style, and Bad Habits and French Women Don’t Get Fat.)
