Here is this week’s list of blog posts, comic strips, videos and other tidbits from my favourite corners of the web.
There’s light everywhere, even in these darkening days. You just have to look for it.
Do I Look Fat? I often get uncomfortable when other people bring up weight loss/gain. It’s too easy to unintentionally offend someone so I end up saying nothing at all.
Open Thread: Book Recommendations. Someday I’d love to invite all of my readers out to dinner. We’d eat and drink delicious things and talk about books all night. Who’s in? 🙂
How an Invitation to Tea Curbed a Slew of Suicide Attempts. What would you do if you moved to a new house and realized that it was across the street from a cliff where desperate people often chose to end their lives?
Marriage Was Not Designed to Make You Happy. This isn’t to say that marriage was designed to make you miserable, just that there’s no such thing as being completed by another person. Love is wonderful but it isn’t a magical potion that fixes all of your problems.
From Silhouette of a Sparrow:
I was born blue. Life ripped me early from my safe place and thrust me into the world. It was all so astonishing that I forgot to breathe.
My mother gave me life that day, but I was the one who decided to take it. I claimed it for myself.

I think asking people the question “Do I look fat?” is setting them up for failure. it shouldn’t be done.
No, marriage is not meant to make people happy. I think marriage is meant to provide comfort, in which you will be as miserable or as happy as you were before getting married. It is just that once married you have someone else to share the s*t with.
I agree. Some questions jus shouldn’t be asked.
Good thoughts about marriage.
