Lynda Barry ClassThere are a couple of heavy hitting things I want to write about but I am so bone tired that I am waiting for a more caffeinated day. (don’t worry – none of those heavy subjects are directly related to me — just STUFF I want to talk about.)

oooof. What a beginning, right?

Things I learned on the internet this week

1. Twitter has a new thing. It’s called Vine. I have downloaded the app to my phone. And that is all I have done.

2. Best headline of the week is from the Weather Channel Blog: Sperm Whales Adopt Disabled Dolphin

3. Everyone is sick. EVERYONE. And if you haven’t been sick you soon will be. There’s a new norovirus in town.

{side note: my friend Robin just bragged to me that she “does not get sick” because of her blood type. I did not believe this could be possible. So I went on the interwebs and turns out she is right!}

{side note #2: I have the blood type that will always get sick.}

4. Want to have some “I wish I could be there” emotions? Check out this class that is being taught by Lynda Barry at the University of Wisconsin-Madison: “The Unthinkable Mind” I keep reading the links within that post and smiling. (hint: It gives you permission to take a mental break and color.)

5. I read online that JJ Abrams is going to direct a new Star Wars. This reminds me that some day I need to tell the story about the first time I played scrabble. (hint: I played it with JJ.Yup.)

Speaking of Star Wars…check out this alphabet print.
