Here's What You Missed This Week 9/29/13 - 10/5/13

I had a very busy week. I've been overwhelmed with all the fall TV. It's officially Halloween Season, so I erected a graveyard on my front lawn. Then, my husband was home sick for a day and a half, so I had to make tea and matzo ball soup. Also, there were two days where, for a few hours, I was so damn cold, I had to wear socks. The horror!

Oh, and I burned myself with hot glue. I escaped without a blister, thank goodness, since it was my touch-screen finger, but it was still really crummy for a while. It will all be worth it soon...

What I Wrote

I've had something stuck in my craw for a while now. Normally, when one has something stuck in their craw, they excuse themselves to the ladies' room to floss it out in private. What did I do? I excused myself to In The Powder Room and complained to the whole damn internet about it. To be honest, I was a little nervous about alienating my fellow bloggers with this one. How do you feel about it? Am I a dick? FYI (if you're a blogger)

Theme Thursday this week was about collections. I thought I had one collection. Then, I walked around my house snapping pictures, and discovered that I'm pretty much a hoarder.. But I hoard cool things! Holy Crap, I Collect a Lot of Stuff

What I Read

Poor Starr of The Insomniac's Dream was sick. That's the bad news. The good news is, while she was bedridden, she finally caught up on The Walking Dead! Hooray! Maybe she'll live-tweet the season premiere with me?

I have always been an advocate for the elective c-section. It was a no-brainer for me, I've never regretted it, and I will recommend it to any woman I speak to. But never was I more glad to have opted out of giving vaginal birth than I was when I read Robyn's article on In the Powder Room this week, because otherwise, I would have soaked my couch in pee. I still needed a Kleenex for the laughter-tears, though (so not hyperbole).

This one is super important. Are you paying attention? October is Friggin' Everything Awareness Month. One of those everythings is domestic violence. Last month, Kelly of DeBie Hive welcomed an anonymous guest author. She let us peep through her window and see what life is really like for a victim of domestic violence. The post left many readers wishing they could do something to help. Last night, we got an update. Anonymous escaped her abusive husband. She and her children are now safe, happy, and loved... But it might not last. She needs a lawyer to keep her family safe, and she needs one by Monday. That's in two days, people. I know this is weird, because you don't know who Anonymous is, but I can personally assure you that this is a real person, her story is real, and she must stay anonymous for her own safety, and for the safety of her children. If you could stand to skip that Starbucks for one day to help keep her and her kids safe, it would mean the world to them. Please click here to read their story and maybe donate a sheckle or two. Please.

Begin awkward segue to funny tweets now...

Tweets I Enjoyed

The neat thing about this week's tweets is that I have pretty much thought all those thoughts, though maybe not as eloquently. That's why I follow those funny bitches; they're eloquent.

Now, I'm off to wait by my mailbox for the styrofoam head that should have arrived from China three weeks ago (and that was Halloween hint number three, if you're counting).
