Posts That Make Me Go BOOM! {3}

Happy Saturday to you!

I’m not sure about you, but my Saturday has started out sort of slow and lazy.  I mean, it’s almost 11am and I am JUST getting around to putting up this post.

And I don’t even feel bad about it because I was up late having dinner out with my best guy, and then both of my guys let me sleep until almost 10am!  That alone makes me go BOOM!

This week was unbelievably busy again, but this time it was almost all work-related.  End of the semester, you know.  So I didn’t get around to many of my regular spots.  But I did (thanks mostly to twitter and facebook), find some pretty sweet nuggets you should read if you haven’t.

Early in the week I clicked over to Jillsmo’s blog, Yeah Good Times, to read a piece she did about her opinion on the connection between vaccines and autism called Autism and Vaccines: MY Opinion.  The whole of my experience with autism comes from teaching teenagers and reading the occasional blog post.  I found this very well-written…and I actually enjoyed reading all the comments as well.

My friend Casey of Moosh in Indy did a post this week about telling stories with words and/or pictures called story pictures. story words.  I am fairly sure I have never met someone who could give encouragement so beautifully and sincerely to so many people.  I may have copied all the quotes from this post and put them around my desk at work.

Liz of A Belle, A Bean, and A Chicago Dog did a very short, concise, easy to understand post about where Google Friend Connect is going and what you should do if you want to read all your favorite blogs that aren’t using Blogger (ahem…THIS ONE) in her post SOS, RSS, GFC and Other Bloggy Acronyms. If you’re not on Blogger and you use GFC, you’ll want this info.  If you read blogs using GFC, you’ll want this info.

This post by Amy at The Pregnant Chicken was floating around facebook, but I never clicked over for whatever reason.  But then someone tweeted it TO me and I couldn’t help it.  And I am SOOO glad I did.  Even if you are not pregnant, you will appreciate the eye candy in Porn for Pregnant Ladies.

This week I am going to leave you with a very thought-provoking post by Rita at Surrender, Dorothy about the different ways girls and boys are treated.  Is this a sensitive perception?  Is this sexist reality?  I really loved the way she presented this with a mix of humor and seriousness:  Don’ts for Wives and Other Things that People Used to and Still Do Think About Women.

So there you have it.  Some weekend reading.

What did I miss?  Anything I should have included but didn’t?  You can tell me, I still have coffee left in this cup…I need something to read.
