First of all, I'm completely at a loss for things to read. I've been reading The Rise and Fall of the Third Reich for 3 months now and, shockingly, it's not an easy breezy read. I've been making a list for my Christmas break of other books from the book blog that I'll be reading, but otherwise, do you guys have any suggestions? Because for real - in the meantime, guess what?
The other night, CB and I landed on something that we're unlikely to forget anytime soon. We'd managed to avoid it for this long, but in a state of weakness and desperation during one of his "we can't ever watch commercials so I'm going to frantically flip through every station I have until something is on" moments, we happened upon "Here Comes Honey Boo Boo."
First of all, does anyone else see the irony in the fact that "Here Comes Honey Boo Boo" is on The Learning Channel? I'm just asking. Perhaps we're starting to nail down the problem....

Whatever. When we landed on this show, I said "Oh no, we are not watching this!" and then we became transfixed almost immediately.
Uh, and we had to look up where they were from because this might be the first show I've ever watched where people who are speaking English are being subtitled....in English.
Also, CB made me promise never to tell anyone that we watched it for a few minutes and I assured him that I could never keep that promise.
As I mentioned last week, one of my best and dearest friends participates in the New York City Walk with Us To Cure Lupus Walkathon each year. I wanted to thank those of you who donated after reading last week's post - this means the world to me, Matt, and the millions of others suffering with this disease.
If you're still interested in learning more or making a donation, please click here. Thank you for helping us spread the word!
Love it, if for no other reason than because of what happens at around 1:27. Enjoy!
And now for the video of the week! If you want to check out the others, click here and here.
But this week, let's just shake it out, people, and enjoy your weekend!
