Friday Wrapup

Yes, I realize that I only blogged once this week and I didn't even get to #2 on the Bali list! That will be next week. SPOILER ALERT: it won't be Monday since I'll be traveling back from a work trip. So check back on Tuesday and I promise to post three times next week! Now we can all breathe easy.
Let's get to it!


Well, this kid pretty much nailed it. Plus, CB sent this video to me the other day and said "I read about it and am sending it to you before even watching it since I can tell it's going to be something you love." Does he know me or what?


This week's book is "Lawrence in Arabia" - not to be mistaken for "Lawrence OF Arabia" which is what I kept thinking it was and I was like "I'm pretty sure CB has made me watch that movie on the old timey station before, but I never knew about the book." And then all of that thinking about Lawrence of Arabia was for naught because it's not even what this book is.

Anyway, click here to check out the great review! Also, thanks for all of your feedback on "Gone Girl" - I'm 100 pages in and think Nick is kind of a jerk. But I'm hooked, so thanks!


A friend of mine posted an article on my Facebook page about Ben Affleck visiting the MSU Spartans football team yesterday. She said: "Had this happened when we were there, I am confident you would have been arrested for stalking. 100 percent."

It's nice to have friends who understand you. But I mean, COME ON. Look at the man. I'd happily go to jail.

Anyway....let's go Spartans!


So this week's video came to me in the middle of the night last night. I woke up, couldn't fall back to sleep, and started thinking about how my dad was having a frustrating week and I'd suggested to him yesterday that maybe not everyone had heard of our family motto: "Don't be a dick" and perhaps we needed to make flyers to spread the word. And then this song popped into my head, I laughed, and fell back to sleep.

Don't worry, dad, be happy!

Happy Friday!
