Chances are, if you've been surfing the internet today, you've stumbled upon sites or Flickr images that have gone dark in protest of SOPA and PIPA. If you haven't yet read up on what those acronyms mean, do it now! I'll wait...
Oh wait! You can't Wikipedia it! Thankfully, while Google has their own protest, they've kept information about the acts live, including information on how to share your opinion on the matter (and a fun infographic).
I'm not going to preach to you about how you should feel about SOPA and PIPA (hint: you should hate them), but as an internet user, you really should do your homework. And if you also hate them, make your voice known! Write to your representatives in Congress! Grab the "Crafters Against SOPA" button at Strumpet's Crumpets! I already got my senator to revoke his support (j/k - but I did write him).
If enough of us speak up, Congress will be forced to listen!

While skimming my Google Reader on Friday, I came across a post on jesse.anne.o about bentos that piqued my interest. I used to be totally obsessed with Vegan Lunch Box and the fun looking food creations she came up with. Now I've got bento on the brain again.
Lucky for me, Jesse included links to the Vegetarian and Vegan Bento Flickr pools in her post. Look at all of this pretty, tasty goodness!
I guess it's time to bust out my copies of Vegan Lunch Box Around the World and Cute Yummy Time (and maybe ask for Yum-Yum Bento Box for my upcoming birthday?!?).
