Les Catacombes - Paris 2012
400 ft below the surface of Paris exists one of the scariest and coolest places on earth. The bones of over 6 million people are still interred here. Now they are organized and placed respectfully, but in the beginning the officials of Paris were just cleaning up the surface of the city by dumping the remains from full graveyards into the old rock quarries that built the city. Spooky! Great place to pop the question to your girlfriend!
All of the photos in this set were long exposures with no flash. If you ever get to go, don’t forget the remote and/or tripod!
Bury me in this.
California-based Yarnboming artists Jill and Lorna Watt of Knits For Life (previously featured here) recently transformed a pair of unassuming benches near the San Francisco Ferry Building into adorably ferocious monsters, complete with six awesome orange feet. The irrepressibly inventive sisters created this delightful yarn installation for an upcoming episode of CCTV America’s new show Full Frame.

For those who have been following me, you know I live and work in China. You also know that I’m now in the middle of a divorce, I’m living on my own in a foreign country and though I hate to solicit funds, I’ve been trying to raise money to get my cats back to the US.
That goal has changed. I was hospitalized with pneumonia a few weeks ago, and I’m currently hospitalized again due to currently undiagnosed stomach and intestinal issues. I have been out of work and my paycheck has been completely exhausted. My new plan is to recover enough to travel so I can move back to the US to live with family and get medical care in a more familiar and less stressful setting.
Any funds donated will go towards getting me back home and getting settled back in the states, as well as any medical expenses I may have. The ex-Man has offered to take off a week of work to help me get back home, so funds might go towards his ticket as well.
I REALLY hate asking, but I’ve gotta get back home. Being sick in another country where there is a language barrier is not fun. 0/10. Would NOT recommend.
If you are wondering about the cats, the girl who gave me Thor is going to care for them. She loves them as much as I do, and I trust that they will be well taken care of… Even though I’m heartbroken at the idea of parting with them. Putting them through the stress of moving across the world may not have been the best idea anyway. If you previously donated for the cats and you wish for me to refund your donation, message me privately and I’ll take care of it for you. No hard feelings.
***Note! Due to being in in the hospital without a VPN, I’m currently unable to change the info on the gofundme page… So that’s what this post is for.
Thank you guys. :)
Lex is a lovely lovely lady who is sick in China and needs help getting home. Donate if you can!
