Randomosity: Gangnam Edition

I just don’t get this video, and yet I think it’s fair to say that I’m obsessed with it. From the cheesy 80s dance moves and the doughy South Korean rapper to the unintentionally hilarious “Sexy Lady!” refrain, it’s completely awesome.

I love this: instead of prescribing drugs to people whose eating habits have gotten them into trouble, some doctors have been writing prescriptions for more veggies, and a not-for-profit program helps out with the cost.

Of course, moving around is just as important as what you eat. Even if you don’t have a huge backyard (we don’t) you can still get active with your kids. Here’s a post I wrote about small space play ideas, as part of my ambassadorship for Let’s Play, an organization started by Dr Pepper/Snapple Group that helps fund playgrounds.

Plus, more of me: I’ve got a new advice column for tweens (and their parents) over on KidzVuz.com! If you’ve got a tween, I would love to have your questions (or theirs). I can’t promise that I’ll help you, but I’ll at least try to make you laugh.

I’m a bit of a grammar fascist. I really don’t care if you make a typo, I make them all the time (and I can barely spell anything without spell check). But people who habitually type “its” when they mean “it’s” or have no idea when to use “to” or “too” drive me crazy. And don’t even get me started on all of the overweight people out there trying to “loose” weight.

If someone points out the mistake to you and you see it and understand why it’s wrong, then it was a typo. But if you simply never learned the difference, then you’re being dumb rather publicly (especially if you blog for a living). And I’m far from the only person who gets annoyed by this stuff, apparently.

And last, I’m not even going to pretend to understand half of the stuff going on in Japan.
