It's raining, it's chilly, it's fall, and I've got a long weekend ahead.....it must be Friday! Let's get to it.
Ok, so this week I'm recommending this book to CB because (a) I think he'll really enjoy it and (b) I want to read it after him, but I have a long list and so I'll give him first dibs on this one. Check out "1491" by Charles Mann by clicking here and peruse the site in general for some really great suggestions (if I do not-at-all-humbly say so myself.)
It's that time of year again! One of my best and dearest friends participates in the New York City Walk with Us To Cure Lupus Walkathon each year. And I, as well as many other friends, family, and colleagues, have been walking along side him every year as well - and this year is no different.
An estimated 1.5 million Americans suffer from lupus, including my friend Matt, making the disease more common than leukemia, muscular dystrophy, cerebral palsy, multiple sclerosis and cystic fibrosis.
- The exact cause of lupus is unknown
- Lupus has no cure
While Matt and his family deal with the realities of lupus every day, I use this as my opportunity to help show support. I know that economic times aren't easy for many, and that's entirely understandable. But if you feel compelled to donate, we will be eternally grateful. If not, I just appreciate you spreading the word to help raise awareness about this disease.
I usually save this blog platform for all things ridiculous and (hopefully) funny, but this is far too important to me not to mention. So, please click here to donate and/or learn more about ALR. And thank you!
Um, last night I walked into the bedroom just as CB was turning off the light. I assumed he'd just finished reading, but as he started tossing and turning I was like "Dude, cut it out." and he was like "I shouldn't have done calculus right before bed."
So it turns out that CB is even weirder than you already thought he was for choosing me as his wife. He voluntarily did calculus "for fun" last night to "see if I could still do it." And then I made gagging noises because math is my nemesis and he started showing me the piece of paper that had the evil math on it. And I was like "I don't even know how we're in the same bed right now. It's like I don't know you at all."
So I'm taking a poll: do people actually do math for fun? Is this a thing? Or can I continue to tease CB about being a math nerd at each turn? You tell me.
Oh! And while we're taking polls, should I be watching "American Horror Story"?
This needs no explanation. This is the Video of the Week.
