Randomosity: Let’s Get Personal

One thing I’ve been carving out time for lately is reading more of my friends’ blogs. You’d think I would just naturally do this, seeing as I met so many of them online and was so happy to have our virtual friendships turn into real ones (sorry fake girlfriends, if I haven’t met you, we’re not actually friends, no matter how much we talk on twitter). But days are short, and there’s so much to do, and…and nothing. I’ve got the time, so included in this post are some of my favorite personal blog posts from this week (and an awesome – if non-personal – bonus).


My friend Charlene, who has run seven marathons and is probably in better shape than most people on the planet, has to get abdominal surgery because of a rare condition caused by her last pregnancy. I can’t even imagine how much this situation sucks. Let’s give her some support!


While I don’t know her anywhere near well enough to call her a friend (have we had more than a conference elevator meet-up? I can’t remember), I have a feeling that Mr. Lady and I would get along very well if we lived closer. Especially after reading this post about her daughter’s reluctant but growing independence.


This post from one of my favorite blogs, the Busy Dad Blog, is about what happens when a toddler learns the subtle art of manipulation. Read it, you won’t be sorry.


My friend Cristie needs help on this hardest of days.


My friend Jennifer wrote (more than a) cookbook, Homemade with Love, and it can be pre-ordered on Amazon. I’m so over-the-moon happy for Jennifer, and can’t wait to get my hands on this book!


And last, we’ll call this personal because I’ve seen Toy Story approximately 2,035 times. If you have two spare hours (yes, I said hours), somebody made a shot-for-shot remake of Toy Story, using real people and toys and puppetry and stop-action and it is AMAZING. There’s some background on this two year project here, and they’ve been chronicling the whole thing on facebook.

    Very honored to be in this roundup of things you like! Means a lot. Also glad I didn’t have to painstakingly arrange toys for a year to get here. Wow, that is dedication to craft!

    @BusyDad: Seriously. We were watching more of that last night and my husband kept saying “HOW LONG did it take them?”
