Conversation with my ten-year-old yelling at me from another room:
Hailey: Mom? Where are you?
me: I’m in here.
Hailey: No you’re not.
Wow. It starts so early.
And now, the weekly wrap-up…
Shit I made in my shop (Named “EIGHT POUNDS OF UNCUT COCAINE” so that your credit card bill will be more interesting.):
- Nothing. Sorry. I have bronchitis and a minor lung infection. I’m moving in slow motion this week.
- Rory the Raccoon is seeing the world. THIS IS WHY THE INTERNET EXISTS. (If you don’t want to get a pinterest account you can hack it by using this:right-click the transparent banner, select “Inspect Element”, right click “UnauthBanner”, click Delete, close lower panel. HACKED!)
- Rogue Taxidermy
- You guys, someone make a kickstarter because I think we just found the Church of Bloggessianism.
- 40 Cringeworthy Men’s Fashion Ads from the 70s.
- Miss Piggy and Kermit are breaking up. None of us are safe.
Shit you should buy or steal because it’s awesome:
- A Manual for Cleaning Women. I got an advance copy and it’s haunting me. In a good way.
This week’s wrap-up is brought to you by the memoir Ezra and Hadassah: A Portrait of American Royalty, a real life tale which goes from the darkness of foster care to serious bleakness as sibling Ezra and Hadassah find themselves stuck in an abusive adoptive family with no way out. Unbeknownst to the children, their biological parents fight to the Supreme Court to get them back, changing case law for future families. After years of complete separation, the children reunite with each other and their parents, learning along the way how to let go of the pain of abuse and neglect. A compelling but hopeful look at foster care, abuse and mental illness. I’m reading it right now and it’s fascinating. Check it out here.
