#FF: Curated Favourites: May 2011, Part 1

Earlier this week during a conversation @alisonwestwood expressed enthusiasm regarding my Twitter favourites, which is (mostly) a curated collection of my favourite humorous, pithy, witty, sweet, cute, thought-provoking, and artistic tweets. When I'm having a bad day I often dip into it as I find it to be an instant mood lifter.

Twitter being what it is, much of this just vanishes into the stream history, so I'm going to start posting a curated selection on my blog twice a month, if I have enough, to give them a bit more permanence.

To begin, here's my selection from the first half of May.
