Stuff & Things & Links & Stuff
This week… I don’t know. I hibernated and it has been rough and I am glad it is over. I sprinkled cinnamon and nutmeg in my coffee grounds this morning and plan on venturing to Eastern Market for honey roasted peanut butter so I suppose it isn’t all bad. I also did a bikram yoga class again after hating it 2 years ago and I think I might have loved it? So confused. I need summer.
I have an awesome giveaway for a book happening on Monday, which has me excited. You all know how I feel about certain blog giveaways, but when it is a product I really love and helps support the creative work of people I think are super fun and talented, I am all about handing out some swag. Stay tuned!
I did a lot of reading this week. Here’s a few good links.
> Currently reading “Things Go Wrong For Me” by Rodney Lacroix, aka Moog. He was one of the first humor bloggers I ever read so I knew I had to get my hands on a copy of his book. It’s just as funny and ridiculous as his blog. Check it out here!
> Stop Apologizing! Why Are Women So Sorry All the Time? Ugh, I am so this person. I’m sorry.
> Why camera angles are critical. These will give you a good laugh.
> Fanning The Fight & Mastery. Robyn is such a wonderful writer and inspiration.
> What to Do if You Can’t Pay Your Taxes. For my fellow freelancers.
Can we agree to put the value of family over the value of fat? Can we just accept that the weight you’ve been trying to lose for 5 years might actually just be a part of what you look like . . . and that if this magical day does come when you’re acceptably thin you’ll STILL regret not having any pictures of you with your kids from ages 5 – 10? Can we acknowledge that the insecurities we have in our heads will never be a part of how our children, husbands, and friends see us? Can we just please let our loved ones remember the YOU they love?
5. Eating foods that you get to dip. I think this derives from the magical tastiness that was Dunkaroos, but now it extends to various things from chips and queso, to chicken nuggets and dipping sauces.
> Do Less.
> Did you hear that Megan Phelps, the Westboro grandchild who pioneered their social media presence, has left the Westboro Baptist Church? I was shocked, but it makes me happy because I always thought she seemed too smart to stay on that path her whole life. I hope she finds something much more meaningful and productive to do with her life.
