It’s my birthday today and I’m sharing some fun and light reading I’ve been doing.
I would love to hear what you think, and see what you’ve had open on your desktop this week.
Here’s what I’ve been reading:
Mondegreens … at Ramblin’ With AM. This begins, “I have some problems with mis-hearing song lyrics.” Well, friend, me too. Just ask my family. Did you know that in Toto’s hit song, ‘Africa’ what they are NOT saying is, “There’s nothing that 100 men on Mars could ever do.” Because they are definitely not saying that. My husband, upon hearing me sing said line, turned the radio off, looked at me and said, “Excuse me?”
6 Etiquette Tips for the Powder Room … at Shop Girl Anonymous. She says what we’ve all been thinking for years, ladies. Fair warning, if you’re a squatter who leaves pee spray all over toilet seats– you don’t need to read this, it’ll just upset you.
Just Because I Can, Doesn’t Mean I Always Do … at Heavenly Homemakers. You know that all natural is healthier. You know how to make things from scratch. But sometimes you don’t. Laura’s been there and asks,
Does this mean I’m a hypocrite? No. This means I’m human.
How about you? Human much?
Heroes Come in All Types – How Newt Scamander is Breaking Stereotypes … at Honest Heart and Mind. Any Potterheads out there? How about folks who know and love someone on the spectrum? This article suggests some really interesting things that escaped my notice when we saw ‘Fantastic Beasts’. Could this be our first hero on the Autism spectrum? You decide.
Myer-Briggs Personality Indicator … at Lonerwolf. I have always loved the little quizzes that used to come in magazines and now show up on Facebook or Pinterest and lure me to find out which Disney princess I’m most like (Jasmine) or which breakfast food I am (Pancakes). This personality test is quick (less than 5 minutes) and seems as accurate as much longer tests I’ve done. I found it in looking for career planning tools for my son. I’m ENFP, what are you?
Best Ever German Chocolate Cake … at A Dash of Sanity. Normally I don’t list recipes in my Food for Thought posts. But today happens to be my birthday, and were someone to offer to bake me a cake, I think I’d pick this one. Heck, I’d bake it myself if I wasn’t the only one in my house to eat it! I know, I know…I could make it anyway. But really, with my goal to grow my blog and shrink my body this year, I hardly need an entire cake in the house that only I will eat! Still…it’s pretty, isn’t it?
*update* I had the sweetest friend see this and bake this cake for me. She brought over just enough for me to enjoy. Blessings on good friends!
