Get a Tissue!

February 6, 2010

This is one woman’s beautifully written account of the day her daughter was born with Down syndrome.

It is such an honest, heart-wrenching story. And the photos are amazing!


Snow Day Links

Sleep Talkin’ Man: A mild-mannered Englishman becomes a foul-mouthed comedian when talking in his sleep. His wife started a blog to document the hilarious things he says.

Cake Wrecks: A collection of “professional” cakes that are just horrible. Lopsided, weirdly decorated, adorned with poorly spelled messages, or just generally disturbing.

Bad Parking: Annoyed citizens send photos of their local parking offenders. I may become a regular contributor to this one.

Red Pen, Inc.: Examples of failure to edit. Misspelled menus, signs with “unnecessary” quotation marks … the kind of thing nerds like me notice.

Passive-Aggressive Notes: Disgruntled co-workers, annoyed roommates, fed-up neighbors … they are all scrawling “helpful” reminders that end up on this site for ridicule.

Postcards from Yo Momma: Funny e-mails, instant messages and Facebook wall posts from mothers everywhere.

Lamebook: A collection of the stupidest conversations, photos, descriptions and status messages on Facebook.

Just Dance!

I love this promotional video for the new Wii game “Just Dance.”

How cute is this guy?

Christmas Lights

December 16, 2009

This house is about a block and a half from us. When you tune your radio to 91.7, you hear one of a handful of Christmas songs they picked out — and their lights are synchronized to go with it!

And they have their own Web site!

Also around the neighborhood:

Tacky Lights

Simple yet elegant

Merry Christmas, y’all!

The Berlin Wall

November 11, 2009

It seems impossible that 20 years have passed since the Berlin Wall came down. I can still remember the guards at Checkpoint Charlie, laughing at my passport photo.

The Boston Globe has a great collection of photos to mark the occasion. (Be sure to click on photos 12-15 for the interactive fun!)

This is for my Mama!

People falling down, news anchors laughing uncontrollably …

It’s like they filmed this just for you, Mommala!

A Quick Survey

My husband is pursuing a master’s degree in public relations, and his project for this semester is to create a strategic plan for the Philadelphia Eagles regarding Michael Vick’s return to the NFL.

He needs some responses to this survey to proceed. Please take a few minutes to answer 15 questions.
