Suggestion Saturday: October 1, 2011

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

20 Ridiculous Complaints Made by Holidaymakers. One of the funniest things I’ve read recently. Oh, the things people complain about!

Butterfly Surgery. I never would have guessed such a thing was possible. Hopefully the patient went on to live a full, happy life.

The Nuances of Deaf Culture. A fascinating post about some of the differences between deaf and hearing culture. If anyone reading this is deaf or has deaf friends/family members I’m incredibly curious to hear about your experiences.

Wild Geese. This is why I love poetry.

Dr. Seuss for grown-ups:

Oh The Jobs (Debt?) You’ll Create! from Marketplace on Vimeo.

If you like young adult, post-apocalyptic mysteries Ashes is the book for you. Alex is a teenage orphan whose brain tumour is slowly killing her. In an effort to come to terms with  this she heads out alone for a fairly impromptu camping trip.  And then the world ends.

Word is that Ilsa J. Bicks has two sequels to this book coming out in 2012. I look forward to seeing where she goes with the story!
