Everyone has good days and bad days. But even after the kind of week this has been, I can take comfort in the fact that I am not a lady who is addicted to stinging myself with bees. And for that, I count myself among the lucky ones.
Yeah. This was totally the subject of “My Strange Addiction” this week and it’s f’ing insane, you guys. She stings herself more than 10 times a day because she thinks that it helps her arthritis. But riddle me this: aren’t you sort of just trading one pain for another while also being completely insane?
I mean, it’s sort of like when you have a headache and you decide that chocolate will help, and so you eat a piece of chocolate, but then you still have a headache, and so then you drink some coffee for the caffeine and then your stomach starts to hurt because you not only just ate chocolate and coffee for lunch, but you totally still have a headache that’s now making you nauseas…or was it the chocolate and caffeine?
See my point? Also, that totally never happens to me.
But what was even weirder than, you know, having a ton of bees sting her on a daily basis, was that now it’s apparently some sort of aphrodisiac that she and her husband swear by. Also, she plays to the flute to them.
And no, sadly, I did not make any of that up, which should terrify all of us.
Anyway, these are the things I’ve experienced this week while trying to unwind. I’m a good time.
So are you guys ready for the Oscar’s? CB and I have been trying to make our way through some of the nominees, as you may remember from my recent post about Argo. Still the best date of CB’s life.
And so far we’ve seen "Argo," "Zero Dark Thirty," and "Flight."
Also, wtf, "Flight"? You wigged me out.
Anyway, who do you think is going to win on Sunday? If you need a re-cap of the nominees, this should help.
This week’s book review is Mr. Penumbra's 24-Hour Bookstore by Robin Sloan. I haven’t read it, yet, but my dad (obviously) did and it actually sounds like something I might be picking up. So, check it out here for yourself – and enjoy!

And now, the Video of the Week.
It’s been quite a week for CB and his family, but all of your comments, emails, thoughts, prayers, and anything else good you’ve sent our way has been so appreciated. Thank you! My readers are the best. And I promise to be back next week with brand new posts.
I know, right? You can barely contain your excitement.
Anyway, in the meantime.....this is for you, DK.
