Happy April 25th!

Life's been busy and my 'Net surfing has been minimal because of it. I'm not sure if that's a good thing or a bad. I'm behind on the sites I usually like to follow, but I'm missing lots of 45 things that I simply don't want to see! So I guess it's a bit of both!

The Week in Tweets and Memes

Running a day late this week because of stuff. And because of stuff, I'm keeping it a bit lighter. 1) Because I'm doing the CampNaNo writer's challenge this month and it's taking way from my internet cruising time, and 2) because I lost a friend and his service was yesterday, which has been hard because I hadn't seen him in a long time, but thought there was time. So, I'm behind (on everything) and in desperate need of lighter fare!

(Okay, yeah, the Pepsi one isn't so light, but I had to sneak at least one in...)

History Recorded in Tweets and Memes

And this week's "Something to make us feel good".

History Recorded in Tweets and Memes

There seemed to be a theme this week! I was out of town for part of the week-- gone to visit my niece who has cancer and is starting her treatments Monday-- and it seems appropriate that everything I saw when I got home was about health care. (And my brother is still a Republican. But I love him, regardless.)

The Difference A Week Can Make

 Last Monday I took a picture of my neighbor's flowers as I walked to work. And this morning they're covered in snow. The sad thing is, our little pigeon left her nest long enough for snow to gather there, and when we looked, we found out the eggs had hatched and the chicks had died. And to make it even sadder, she came back and she's sitting on them again. As soon as she leaves, we're rebuilding the feeder and putting a back on it and turning it into a bird house. Then maybe she'll come back and we'll get a happy ending!

And here's one just for the fun of it!

Killing Me Softly With His Song

I kind of developed a thing for anime and manga a couple of years ago, and I stumbled onto Killing Stalking in mid-February while I was home battling the flu. It's a Korean manwha and I'm completely hooked. It's totally disturbing! It's about a young man who breaks into the home of the man he's obsessed with and has been stalking, only to find he's a serial killer. And he gets caught. Things get bazaar. I know! Right? I like to read the comments fans leave. Some call it a romance (which it definitely is not!) while others talk about the psychology of the piece (which is where my interest lies). The thing is, I'm reading a translation, and I've found that different sites have slightly different takes. I haven't gone back to compare some of the translations, but the one I've been reading has the lyrics to "Killing Me Softly With His Song" throughout the comic. I would love to know if the author really has incorporated that into her story or if it was creative license by the translator.

I would also love to get the song out of my head. I think it's going to be stuck there for awhile!

Welcome Spring!

These are from my yard. In Central Illinois. Today. March 5. But climate change isn't a real thing.

I love holding hands. The husband... not so much. He will for short times, a quick squeeze and release, usually. He actually held my hand through the whole of a friend's wedding last year and then said later it was the nicest wedding he'd ever been to. So, yeah. Holding hands is nice. And everyone should feel comfortable doing it. Which is why I appreciate the idea behind this ad from the Australian Bank ANZ. Read about it [here].

This Week in Tweets and Memes

This week's collection is short--mainly because I've been sick and haven't spent much time sitting at my computer! No, it's been a "hot-tea and badly written free books on my Kindle" kind of week. But I think I'm over the worst of it. This weather-- 50s one day, an inch of snow the next, and then 50 again. No wonder everyone is sick!

I've got the feeling this may become a regular thing!
