Okay, let me just get this out there. How on earth is it November 18?!! This year is moving way too fast. Anyone figure out how to slow that down yet? Anyone? Bueller? *sigh*

Well, I plan on enjoying this Sunday at the very least and taking it at a nice slow clip. Here’s some reading and videos in case you feel like doing the same.

I thought this article on the Huffington Post was interesting about how Twitter is changing kids. It’s also a little scary.

For some reason Diwali was on my radar this week in a way it’s never been before. After watching this short video from National Geographic, I’d really want to visit India during Diwali now.


These photos are incredible. I’m happy if I can get everyone smiling. Try photographing insects.

There have been many posts written about the “R-word”, most notably this one, and I think it’s raising consciousness on the use and mis-use of it everywhere. My friend Lisa, over at Forever in Mom Genes, wrote this truly incredible post about how the “R-Word” was dropped in front of her and the surprising result.

By far, one of the funniest things I saw this week was The Haters Guide to the Williams-Sonoma Catalog. For the record, I love Williams-Sonoma, I could spend hours in that store. That being said, if you spend $72 for biscuit mix, you officially have more money than brains.

Yes, I have officially seen all of the Twilight movies. Every.Single.One. And here’s the thing about them. They are so bad they’re good. That’s my only excuse. For more, check out Kellidaisy’s review.

This story made me smile from ear to ear and restores my faith in humanity. Well done boys, well done.

If you write on the internet you MUST go check out The Oatmeal’s latest cartoon. He nails it with humour and dead-on accuracy. My favourite part? The comments beside the Mona Lisa!

My friend Heather is working with Right to Play, an incredible charitable organization that works with children in Rwanda.

This documentary, The Light Bulb Conspiracy looks fascinating! I can’t wait to see it.


Finally, I’m throwing in a bonus post this week because of the death of Hostess, makers of Twinkies. For those that will miss it, a look back at the “food” that will no longer be available.
