On Kohl’s website there is a Black Friday list on which Kohl’s has kindly suggested the best three things for me.  

The first two are a watch and a Keurig.  Okay.  

But then there is a Playskool Mr. Potato Head Super Spud???  I’m not sure what you’re getting at here, Kohl’s.

Ummm.  GIMME.

Seriously, this is beautiful.  I love it.  I want it.

So back at Mother’s Day my brother sent my mum a box of Godiva chocolates - it came in a really nice foam cooler with a reusable ice pack.  I have since taken both of those things as they are great for transporting water bottles.

THE ICE PACK IS - I SWEAR TO GOD - THE BEST ONE I HAVE EVER USED.  Takes FOREVER to melt even a bit.

Damn, Godiva.

Jon Stewart’s Priceless Response To Fox News On Ferguson

Jon Stewart is back from vacation, and he’s not wasting any time going after one of his favorite targets: Fox News.

Watch his the full brilliant 10  minute monologue on racism and Ferguson  here.

But I am just in love with this shot.

- Cat chewed through second computer cord
- Cat chewed through headphones
- Pizza order entirely wrong

I’m currently trying to decide whether or not to take a rather large risk.

It could go one of two ways - either it gets me where I want to go or it’s just semi-wasted time.

My life has largely been risks and for the most part they have paid off.  But I’m still sitting here at a loss trying to figure out how to get into the life I want to be in and I have found a possible door.

But it would mean putting off university (something I need to finish and soon because I won’t have my current health insurance after next July) and banking on something I’m not sure will pay off in the end.

I hate wasting perfectly good food, so I put it in tupperware, forget about it, find it a month from now, open it, gag, THEN throw it out.

All of the news and stories that have been pouring out about the situation in Ferguson is heartbreaking.

My mum compared the situation and images to the race riots of the 1960s.

I think it’s terrible that the town’s political and law enforcement leaders are trying to cover up the story and prevent media into the city.

It is unacceptable behaviour all around and we should not stand for it.
