I was in the process of writing a post about Tolstoy and candles (I swear I'm not high... you'll see what I mean later), I had to quickly Google something and was excited to come across this! I instantly recognized Gregor Samsa from our reading of The Metamorphosis. Hovering over the image, I was informed that today happens to be Franz Kafka's 130th birthday. [P.S. Damn... I love Google Doodles! It's always a better day when there's a Google Doodle!] #franzkafka #themetamor
When I was little, I loved Band-Aids*. I was always waiting for my next boo-boo so I could put on another one. I also was, apparently, not very bright... because I found a box of maxi pads and thought they were giant Band-Aids* (in my defense, they are a very similar shape).

As you can see, most of my friends and family members have heard me rant on this particular topic many time
I saw this bumper sticker in my travels (and by "travels", I mean "the drive to my office to print out my last few paycheck stubs, stop at Starbucks and then drive home". My life is utterly fascinating these days). Although I'm not one of those smug "I never watch television" people (please, this whole challenge is predicated on a television show!), I found myself nodding in agreement as I read this.
Fight the good fight, brother! #fun
