Here is this week’s list of blog posts and other tidbits from my favourite corners of the web.
The Girl Who Would Live Forever. This article has been haunting me all week. What would you do in this situation?
Black Sheep via RealSarahC. I don’t normally like to tell my readers what to expect when they click on these links, but this time I thought I should. This post is about living in a dysfunctional family as well as what happens to people who try to become healthier adults. It was excellent.
Yes, You Can Catch Insanity. It will be fascinating to see if this turns out to be true.
10 Words You Should Never Use via AndieDelicacy. Scroll down to these specific numbers if you want to know which words on this list make me cringe: 9, 7 and 2. The rest don’t bother me at all, although there are other words in the English language that do annoy me.
From The Worst Parents Ever:
This was the son of a well-off family escaping consequences by saying he’d always avoided consequences. It was proof of separate justice systems in this country, one for the rich and another for the poor, and Ethan became the face of wealth and privilege.
From I Know My Value via Whiteliphant:
I got my first anon-hate last week through ask.fm. Yay, I guess. I mean, I’m not necessarily happy that somebody I probably know hated-commented on something that I work very hard to keep alive, but as a best friend said (in quoting someone else): “You know you’re doing something right when you are pissing someone off”.

I really enjoyed the 10 Words You Should Never Use post! I have to say that I don’t really have a problem with the majority of the words on her list, but it is interesting to see what sorts of feelings various words conjure up for different people. My picks on her list are 2 and 1.
I’m so glad you liked that link.
What is it about word #1 that bothers you?
I don’t find it offensive or anything. I just find it to be sort of silly/weak and not quite up to the standard that particular piece of clothing deserves. I’m not sure that is quite the right way to describe why I find it irritating, but it is along that line. I prefer to say underwear.
