I ran across a feature today online poking fun at the titles of young adult novels.
I recently took a couple of classes in YA lit at NYU, so this naturally caught my eye. And of all the ‘what they really should be called’ entries, this one made me say, “Oh, hell yeah!”

The broadcast and online media outlets have all gone gooey-eyed over the way NBC Nightly News anchor Brian Williams announced his own daughter Allison’s casting in the plum role of Peter Pan in the network’s upcoming live action production —
No tears here.
I demand that the full investigative reporting resources at NBC News be hurled at this story, which reeks of nepotism, entitlement and…dare I say, piracy.
J.M. Barrie said it best:
“Dreams do come true, if only we wish hard enough. You can have anything in life if
you your daddy will sacrifice everything else for it.”

About this time every year, I am amazed at the pumpkins that folks create.
Not the pies — although I appreciate those, too — but the pumpkin carvings that I see on porches, stoops and online. They just get more extreme and extraordinary every Halloween.
In fact, I saw one today that touched my inner gourd.
Girl! I hear that.

Rory and I saw many interesting things during our early morning walk in the neighborhood.
A barefoot walk of shame. A ‘professional’ photographer taking snaps through a storefront window. Twinkling pickle lights.
Yeah, that last one was our favorite, too.
And now I’ve found them online!
Aren’t you just green with envy?!

If you’re like me, you get your news online or on TV, and don’t buy a daily newspaper. So you may wonder…
Do we really need them anymore?
This image from Leslee Cortez on Picstache.com answers that question once and for all —
How else would we give folks ‘newspaper head’ without ’em?

What do you do when you’re bored?
I read. Go to the movies or a show. Often just hop online.
Clearly that wouldn’t work for this guy.
Kudos to him for raising money for charity!
