Weekend Roundup

the bewildermentWe're taking off early for the holiday, and whether poolside, beachside, couchside or face down on your bed, we've got your weekend reading covered: some revised children's books (The Tree That Said 'Fuck It' and Left The Boy to Follow Her Own Dreams); advice about how to live in a place you hate (get off your knees, says Baba Yaga), how to be fancy as hell for a reasonable amount of money (must learn about this thing called "consignment shopping"), and also, heartbreakingly, how to make it through a miscarriage (Gatorade, remembering that people love you, one breath at a time). We've got headlines from the beautiful futureghost stories from Chicano culturecopper-wire IUD earrings and an Alito voodoo doll and a story of love and second marriage; we'll you back here on Monday, and thanks, as always, for hanging out.

Rookie (not the magazine) (not that there's anything wrong with that)

Okay, let's liven this up with some actual human commenters, the way things should be!

I was away last week (and what a week to miss, with so much content, losing Frosty, and finding out that Emma will be moving on) so how about 5 Things I Liked in the last two weeks?

1. I went to Seattle last week and the people and the food were so great! How did it take me so long to find out that the Pacific Northwest is awesome?

2. Met up with a friend who lives there, and we had only ever interacted on social media before. She pulled out all the stops: took me shopping, bought me lunch, drove me to the airport. So grateful for her.

3. The super-nice airline employee who basically fixed everything for me when I missed my flight on another airline (by literally two minutes).

4. Wild honey flavoured cough drops

5. Happy hour! I think this might have been the first time I ever went to a "real" happy hour, since I usually finish work around the time they're supposed to end. (In theory. Anything in Montreal that involves alcohol usually lasts until closing time, anyway.)


@Rookie (not the magazine) (not that there's anything wrong with that) Yay Seattle! I am headed that way next week. And also yay for human commenters! Spambots piss me off.

My week was mixed. On the plus side, I finished a big job. On the minus side, I sent it back to the client a day early and received zero, zip, bupkus in response. So now I am wondering if I will even get paid. On the plus side again (and related to your cough drops), one of our two beehives swarmed and I saw the swarm and my dad and I caught it and put it in a new hive. On the minus side, on Thursday the other hive swarmed and went 35 feet up into a tree and I spent all day trying to lure it down (called a tree-climbing friend who used a giant slingshot to shoot a rope over the tree so we could haul up a comb with brood in it that they would supposedly swarm to) to no avail. So those bees are a lost cause. But on the plus side yet again, today is beautiful and when I finish my work I will go canoeing on the river with beer and a friend. So all in all, I think the pluses win.

HIV/AIDS is a terrible disease, if not for my Husband and the help of the great Dr. OZIEGBE my life would have been a mess! I was diagnosed with HIV in 2009, my husband encouraged me, and told me not to lose hope, I manage to give birth to a baby Boy who was free from the disease, and my Husband was always there for me! One day he came to me and told me that he have found a man who can cure me. Base on scientist, they said there is no cure for HIV; he told me that he has seen many testimonies about him on the internet. We decided to contact him, we filled his Herbal home form, and he asked us to buy some items which we did! Three days later he asked me to go for HIV test, faithfully I went to do the Test, and Behold, I was cured, the virus was not found in my Body… My Dear Husband and my Father Dr. OZIEGBE, God will surely bless the both of you, till the end of time, in Jesus name.. If you have any problem kindly contact he on DROZIEGBESPELLHOMECURE@HOTMAIL.COM or you can call him on +447418362812
