It’s not even Thanksgiving yet but yesterday I was struck by the Christmas presents dread that usually hits me later in the season. I am secretly hoping I will be working on Christmas Day so I will not have to worry about packages under the tree. Am I turning into Scrooge??
One. Africa, elephants and a road trip. Sofagirl thinks this is one for the bucket list. I would be happy to leave tomorrow. What a wonderful gift it would be to give to myself!
Two. When it comes to gifts, I often fantasize about making actual things for people. My skills don’t go beyond baking so I will keep on fantasizing but I do make things for myself for the sake of it. Apparently, according to Austin Kleon, it can get you unstuck.
Three. Remember Oasis? Among the gossip and the Abel and Cain fighting, there was great music. Liam Gallagher has a new album. I am a sucker for good pop and this is as good as they come. And an apology of sorts, dare I say.
Four. What has to be the most beautiful library ever built turned out to have a lot of fake books on its shelves. Still…an amazing structure.
Five. Yes, a bloody dog video. Have a great weekend and stay out of trouble.
