Friday Funtimes!

Posted on

What a week! Can it really be Friday again? I am in dire need of some distractions. What about you? First up is a little short film.


For years now, the kiosk has been Olga‘s little home simply because her sweet tooth and monotonous life has made her bigger than the exit.
To distract herself, she reads travel magazines and dreams of being far away. An absurd incident starts the beginning of her journey.

This week I found some coloring pages that are also paper dolls so not only can you distract yourself by coloring them in, you can practice your scissor skills by cutting them out too! They are all historical women, perfect for March and Women’s History Month.

Rosie the Riveter!

Amelia Bloomer, ever hear of bloomers? As in pants? Those were named after her innovation.

It’s Juliette Gordon Low, founder of the Girl Scouts

I found this whole coloring book of great ladies, you have to scroll through them all. They have Bessie Smith, Marie Curie, Susan B. Anthony, and many more, including the following Pocahontas page.

Here are two more videos to get you through the rest of the day.

In A Heartbeat

“In a Heartbeat” – Animated Short Film by Beth David and Esteban Bravo

A closeted boy runs the risk of being outed by his own heart after it pops out of his chest to chase down the boy of his dreams.

Domestic Policy

In 1919, a tea lady eavesdrops on a top-secret government meeting called to solve the latest, gravest problem facing the British Empire… A satirical comedy which wryly suggests that today’s obsession with female appearance was borne out of one official government meeting.

If like me you watch the BBC miniseries North & South every other month you will recognize Lesley Manville. She’s also in many other projects including the Phantom Thread. All the dudes in this short film will look familiar too, as they are all in every British show that ever has been made.
