• I can’t figure out why it’s spelled T-O-R-O-N-T-O but I pronounce it as “Toronno.”  I do not have a lazy mouth.  I speak reasonably clearly.  Why is my tongue tangled on this word?

  • I wander onto this site last night and it is so aptly named:  The Happiest Place on the Internet.  Once I was past the “Hey, they are hugging the … okay, they are hugging the computer” mindset, it was really lovely to watch.  The song is tear-jerky.  The Bobba Fett hug is quality.  The one where the grandmotherly lady says, “Oh, hi sweetie!” and issues a hug with her teacup by her hip made me cry.
  • This post from Melissa is amazing, and inspiring.  I like her pledge.  I already pledged to run like a velociraptor is chasing me.

  • The Glucocoaster?  Hell yes – who hasn’t gone for a ride now and again?  (Mostly now.  And then again.)
  • “Why do dinosaurs have big tummies?” “Do Thanksgiving turkeys speak French?” “Why isn’t there cookie salad?” “Can we live on the moon next year?” “Rhinoceroses are jealous of spoons, you know.”  Life with a three year old is getting pretty fucking weird.
  • Good ol’ Jerry the Bear made Upworthy.  And that makes me beary happy.  (Shut up.)
  • “And so instead of getting mad at myself for not having done a ‘better job,’ whether it be as a crime victim or a diabetic, I’m trying to be more gentle towards myself. I’m also adopting a new motto: ‘Don’t be an asshole.’  It’s a message that I’d definitely like to suggest to my mugger — but it also applies to my relationship with myself.”  Must-read post from A Sweet Life’s Catherine Price.
  • More coffee, please.
