Here is this week’s list of blog posts, poems, rants, and other tidbits from my favourite corners of the web.
The Five Paragraph Method. I once had a teacher who strongly believed in this writing style. It has always come across as a lazy, boring way to communicate ideas to me.
Addy Walker, American Girl. Who else remembers this doll? This commentary on it is really interesting.
If Vin Diesel were your boyfriend, he wouldn’t mind that you spend every Sunday alone with your friends. “You’re not just friends, you’re a family,” he’d say while you get ready for brunch.
The man who died the night before is the same man I asked, “When is the last time you saw your kids?” while forgetting to change this language for a blind person. He thought it was funny, and he also thought it was funny when he told me that it’s hard to kill yourself in a hospital. I laughed too.
