- There’s a New Saved by the Bell Diner in Chicago and It’s a Superfan’s Dream Come True–I grew up watching Saved by the Bell sometimes before school, sometimes when I got home from school, sometimes both. I love this idea!
- The Unapologetic Introvert: I Had to Leave the U.S. to Stop Pretending to Be an Extrovert–“The Swiss valued quiet—it was reflected in the country’s hiking obsession—over 60,000 kilometers of trails crisscrossed the tiny country and if you weren’t enjoying their solitude every Sunday, you were culturally amiss. Reserved and contemplative, the Swiss didn’t even smile at each other when passing by on the street—which, thanks to my initial fake extroversion, I had to learn the hard way. Loud enthusiasm had no place in Switzerland—unless you happened to be a church bell.” I have experienced so much of what’s mentioned in this article in the workplace. The ping pong playing had me chuckling and nodding my head emphatically.
- These 80s Trends Are Back, and They’re Better Than Ever–Are you all kidding? Gold Lamé has NEVER been out of style in my book, but then, I’ve got mad grandma style. I’m glad these are being recognized as fashionable again by the general public, but I’ve gotta tell you, I’ve been on this for quite some time (see below). If it’s good enough for Elvis, it’s good enough for me.
- The Internet Needed This Bizarre Video of Cats Going Grocery Shopping–A friend shared this with me over at Facebook, and you need to see it, too. So good.
- An Open Letter to Women Over 40 And The 20-Somethings Who Write About Them –I’m not 40 yet, but I can relate as I close in on 35. I don’t appreciate society telling me what the hell they think it’s acceptable for me to wear. If I want to wear a cat shirt with outer space and cheeseburgers, I’ll wear it. “You know what women shouldn’t do after the age of thirty? They shouldn’t tell other women what they can and can’t do. They shouldn’t accept the bullshit that’s piled onto them by other women. They shouldn’t try to repress their true selves to fit into societal standards.”
- The Most Adult Movie Ever Made for Teens–I am a huge fan of Bernardo Bertolucci, and I’ve seen most of what he’s done. I love it all. When I was a teen/early 20s, I must’ve watched this movie at least 20 times. No lie. I’ve seen it so much, I could probably recite it in its entirety. The attention to detail in the movie and how Bertolucci captures the beauty in the minutia of life is one of my favorite parts of the film. The reality of the sex scenes, and the soundtrack! Oh, the soundtrack. Even if you aren’t in your teens, it’s a great film (trailer below).
So I only have one Google search that I saved this week, and I’m attributing that to a lot of worry about my sweet Meal. Don’t worry, I’ll be back at it next week. To tell you the truth, I mostly googled issues with Parvo and reverse sneezing this week so that was about it. The only one I managed to save before Mearl got sick is below.
