Sorry I’ve been MIA for the past two days. My daughter caught a stomach virus and it’s been rough. She’s doing much better now. My car, on the other hand, still smells of vomit. C’est la vie.
Speaking of kids, I wanted to share this video from stand-up comedian Michael McIntyre, which cracked me up and spoke to me as a parent. (BTW, last year, he was reported to be the highest grossing comedian in the world. Who knew?)
Are you dressing up and trick or treating today?
I loved these 31 Splendidly British Ideas For Halloween Costumes via Buzzfeed (although I wasn’t sure what #1, 2, 14 and 22 were!).
As for me, I’m going to be an apple (to match my daughter, who’s dressing up as Snow White). Have a wonderful and safe Halloween!
I lived in Scotland for two years and it remains one of my favorite places on the planet! And so I really loved this Buzzfeed.com list of the 23 most wonderfully Scottish things that have ever happened. Particularly numbers 1, 10 and 20.
Raise a glass to these unsung British heroes. Each one is deserving in their own special way, from the chap who quoted Homer Simpson on the London Underground sign to the guy who photobombed David Cameron.
See the full list that was geniusly curated by Buzzfeed.
Well, if you’ve ever felt like “Downton Abbey” is missing a bit of feline flair (and who hasn’t?), keep an eye out for “Downton Tabby” by Chris Kelly, which will be released Dec. 3.
If this cover is an indicator of the quality read that awaits, we are all in for a treat!
Yes, you read that right! It could only happen in Portland! *Sigh* I ♥ Portland!
