Each week, I compile a small collection of stuff I wrote, read, tried, watched, tasted, and fell asleep on ( last two are mostly a joke).
I wrote a guest post over at baby gooroo called 7 Things No One Ever Tells You About Pregnancy. It was fun to write, since I’m about two and a half years out from my pregnancy days, and it was neat to sort of go through all of those memories again (and then lie down on my bed on my stomach and eat hot dogs without worrying about listeria or whatever).
Walter White Boldly Goes Where No Meth Dealer’s Gone Before over at Adweek’s blog, AdFreak. If you’re a Breaking Bad fan, check it, but even if you’re not, the video is pretty cool.
Eating Out and Claiming Food Allergies? We’re Not All Liars by Tiffany Self over at Scratch or Sniff my site for parents of kids with allergies, asthma, and eczema. I’ll give you the TL;DR: Tiffany called out a few people with large followings (including Food Babe) who encourage their readers to lie about their allergies to get what they want at restaurants. Our stance is that’s dangerous and it dilutes the urgency of real, actual, life-threatening allergies. Food Babe responded and – frustratingly – sort of doubled down. We’d love for her to retract her statement altogether, along with Dr. McDougall, who, as it stands, is ignoring everyone completely.
Wisdom from the AC Guy by Joanna at Our Freaking Budget. I like this story. :)
This entire GoFundMe called “I need some white privilege” that Kristen Howerton posted on her FB page. It’s funny (and meant to be funny), and while a lot of people are offended by it, a potato salad raised like $50,000, SO.
10 Tricks to Appear Smart During Meetings at Medium. (I laughed out loud at “Will this scale?”)
You may have seen this video floating around social media. Kacy Catanzaro is the first person to complete some course on some show (neither of which I know anything about), but it’s super impressive and the excitement (from Kacy, the crowd, and the announcers) is infectious.
Catch you tomorrow for TIHIF!
