As I mentioned last week, it's that time of year again for the New York City Walk with Us To Cure Lupus Walkathon. Tomorrow, something that happens about twice a year will occur, and only because of pure love and dedication: CB will get up at 8am on a Saturday so we can head out to the walk with our best friends to support Matt. If that's not love, I don't know what is.
An estimated 1.5 million Americans suffer from lupus, including our friend Matt, making the disease more common than leukemia, muscular dystrophy, cerebral palsy, multiple sclerosis and cystic fibrosis. So, while I usually save this blog platform for all things ridiculous and light, I have to make an exception because 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!
This week's book is one that I debated with my dad over last night because he was all like "Nobody's going to want to read about environmental stuff and the Great Lakes." And I was like "Um, just because I'm your daughter and I write about my underpants doesn't mean my audience is not multi-faceted and environmental."
So, if you want to prove me right, click here to check out "The Great Lakes Water Wars." Being from Michigan, it's obviously a fascinating topic for those of us directly affected. But lets get real - water is the new oil (like orange is the new black), so I think this is a subject we'll be hearing more and more about as the years go on. Get ahead of the curve, people! (and, again, prove me right). Enjoy!
Now, the Video of the Week. And it's a twofer you guys! The first video is courtesy of CB because this morning, on our way to the train, we heard this song on the radio and it took us both back to middle school when we rocked rooster hair and pegged pants. Also, CB likes to point out that he had moves even back then and girls would "line up to dance with me." And then I supportively roll my eyes.
But I'd never seen Part I of the Video of the Week until he told me about it, and so perhaps you have all missed out as well.
And then obviously, the Video of the Week. Enjoy, and happy Friday, everyone!
