Here is this week’s list of comic strips, lists, pictures, and other tidbits from my favourite corners of the web.
Good for You, Not For Me. I identify with this so much. Some things don’t change from one subculture to the next.
Rivers. Who else is mesmerized by this?
Why Wait for Spring to Walk Outside? Those of you who have followed this blog for a while probably remember how much I dislike being outside in the winter. This article raised some great points about the benefits of exercising outdoors at this time of year and how you can do it safely, though. It was written with senior citizens in mind, but the tips in it can work well for anyone.
Dispossessed in the Land of Dreams. If I ever win the lottery or become a best-selling author, I’m going to do something about this. Nobody should live this way.
8 Research-Supported Ways to Bust the Winter Blues. I’m planning to try all of them this winter.
How to Tell if a Canadian Is Mad at You. As a Canadian, I can confirm that the entire list is true. This include item #4. 😉
Childhood Lost. This is heartbreaking, especially once you see the photos of the lost stuffed animals.

Re: Dispossessed in the Land of Dreams
I was just reading that some are worried the same thing is going to happen in Kitchener (part of Waterloo Region, where I live). With all of the tech communications companies sprouting up in this area, they’re setting up swanky offices and condos and restaurants etc in the downtown core of the city. Which is good, for the most part. But they’re edging out the middle-class entrepreneurs and forcing out the homeless and disadvantaged who’ve called downtown Kitchener home for decades.
Micro-Gentrification, as some have called it. I wish I knew what the solution was.
