Here is this week’s list of blog posts, essays, poems, comic strips, and other tidbits from my favourite corners of the web.

BED08 via JAHesch. What a tearjerker. It’s amazing how many different emotions a good writer can pack into such a small amount of space.

Don’t Speak His Name. This is exactly what the weather has been like in Toronto over the last several weeks. Based on reports from friends who live elsewhere, a lot of other people can say the same thing.

Woman Goes Viral After Shutting Down Racist Co-Worker in the Most Hilarious Way Possible. Okay, this is one of the most brilliant responses to racism I’ve ever seen. Kudos to her for handling it so beautifully. I hope no one ever gives her any trouble over her name again.

Why the Myers-Briggs test is Totally Meaningless. Fascinating stuff.

How My Bum Eye Helped Me Look in the Mirror Again via KW_Writes. This was such a great post. It reminds me why I like the body acceptance movement so much.

The Little-Told Story of How the U.S. Government Poisoned Alcohol During Prohibition with Deadly Consequences. This is the stuff of nightmares. It makes me wonder if similar things are still going on today with other substances.

My 10 Favourite Ray Bradbury Stories via MariaHaskins. I’ve read a lot of Ray Bradbury’s stories, but I haven’t read any of these yet. This needs to change. They all sound amazing.

What have you been reading?
