Weekend Links, 9.22.12

Lessons I’ve learned in the past couple days:

  1. If the peel on a banana slights breaks open and you leave it sitting on your counter anyway, fruit flies will invade.
  2. If your husband is at work and the plunger doesn’t work, dish soap and hot water will unclog a toilet.
  3. If you insist on picking a monster zit on your forehead, you will end up with a giant scab. (Lovely.)
  4. If you procrastinate too long, you will create massive amounts of unnecessary stress.

I’d tell you more about that last one, but I’m out of time. Seriously out of time. I have put off a major, big-deal, important-to-me-and-others project WAY too long and am currently at Def Con 5, Red Alert, heart-attack-and-ulcer-inducing panic stage.

So, while I flap around my house in a state of pure adrenaline and nonsense (and, I’ll admit it, a bit of self-loathing, because really? I KNOW BETTER.), you should check out these great posts from this month.

{I know. I KNOW. I said I would share posts more often to avoid giving you a crazy long list all at once. I did. I said that and then, what did I do? Pretty much the opposite. I’m sorry. I’ll try harder. But I promise – I promise! – all of these posts are worth a read.}

Two more things. I happened upon this and feel it’s my duty, as a devoted Gilmore Girls fan, to share it with you: The Rory Gilmore Reading Challenge. And, in honor of last week’s long-awaited and glorious return of Parks & Recreation, enjoy this video.

  1. Wow- that Rory Gilmore Reading Challenge is intense! I think I will stick to my own To Read list. Love the Adam Scott video.

    Hope you can get a little rest and relaxation time in this weekend!

  2. Thank you so much for the mention! I know what you mean about procrastinating. I’ve been trying to get out of the habit, but it’s so hard.
