Weird Wednesday: Scaphism

Growing up, I had dreams of one day becoming a forensic entomologist. I was obsessed with Forensic Files. I thought it fascinating that scientists could determine cause of death, toxicology findings, and the location of an incident by studying insects.

Of course, being that I'm irrationally afraid of bugs, it probably wouldn't have been the best career choice. Even still, I find the role of bugs after death quite fascinating.

Scaphism, however, is disturbingly fascinating. It deals with bugs causing death—and not by anaphylaxis or a single infected bite. We're talking sheer agony. We're talking bugs consuming the flesh of a living person while they're conscious. We're talking Persian torture methods.

Winc Wine Club: A Wine Delivery Service

I don't know much about wine. Really. My lack of knowledge has led me to stick with the same wine every time I shop for it. The last time that I tried a new wine, I ended up giving it away because I didn't like it. So, I've become the girl that sticks with the tried and true (which is usually a Moscato).

Frankly, I'm bored. But finding one that I like seems like a never-ending battle and a waste of money.

But not anymore! Winc has come to my rescue and has finally taken the guesswork out of wine for amateurs like me. Even better, they deliver wine right to your front door!

Weird Wednesday: Vladimir Petrovich Demikhov and The Two-Headed Dog

I figured I'd kick off this new series with something absolutely disturbing—and while I love all things weird, disturbing, and morbid, even I am uncomfortable with this story.

I'm an avid dog lover. So, being that this particular gruesome story deals with these lovable, cuddly, loyal-to-a-fault, furry creatures, I find it incredibly hard to digest. I've been known to say, "There's nothing better than a good dog, except for two good dogs." But, you know, I didn't mean a medically created two-headed-dog...

Decor Inspiration: White Kitchens

A crisp, ivory kitchen evokes a sense of pure cleanliness. Because I'm a messy cook, however, I don't think a white kitchen is for me. It'd probably be marked with splatter stains from various wines and children's spills. Sometimes that pesky red coloring is no match for my cleaning supplies. Of course, that doesn't stop me from "ooh-ing" and "ahh-ing" whenever I see such a pristine, sparkling, white kitchen in someone else's home.
