Odds and Ends


1. My love for Andrew Bird will never die. Have you seen his new duet with Fiona Apple?

2. No one writes about divorce and single parenting from a father’s perspective better than Serge. Love his latest.

3. Have you spent much time on Reddit? Apparently, there are some amazing beauty tips on there.

4. What causes love to go away. Deepak always makes you think.

5. Tips on living a creative life. Kick fear to the curb, for one. (Oh, like it’s soooo easy.)

6. How to be painfully condescending to women without even knowing it! Mansplaining.

7. Oh, and by the way, women need more sleep than men because fighting the patriarchy is EXHAUSTING. Heh.

8. Get ready to cry your face off. For real.

9. President Obama does the tango. I love that man.

10. Speaking of dancing, you will never be able to unsee this, people. MY EYES.

11. How do you feel about clogs? I love all things 70s and will be partaking this summer.

Happy weekend to all of you! I’ll be enjoying March Madness and Easter festivities with my family.

      Nope, not getting divorced, but I think both articles are highly relevant to many people in today’s society.

    I’m from Argentina and we loved Obama’s visit. He is warm and bright. Michelle Obama is so inspiring and they are all, as a family, so warm.

    My friend went to prom with Andrew Bird, which I mention anytime anyone ever says the name Andrew Bird. It’s as close to glory and fame as I’ll ever get.

    You need to put an NSFW tag on that Prudential ad. That was amazing. And I totally cried my face off.
