Sometimes I see things on the internet and I think — man, everyone should read this/know this, so I might share it on Facebook or tweet it. And like four people probably read it.
But then I thought it would be better to post a little compilation of links to things you definitely should know about every so often. (And it helps me too, ’cause I won’t lose the links!)
Also, today is St. Patrick’s Day, a holiday which is largely ignored by the English, celebrated minimally by the Irish, and a really big deal to the Americans (particularly those in Boston and New York, it seems). Since I am an American from Boston in England of Irish descent (and traveling to Ireland next week), I am in a weird place for this holiday, but I do love it and feels like home, so I’m celebrating — Happy St. Patrick’s Day!
Now, here’s the list of things that I think we should all know about this week. Go, read, and be more knowledgeable!
This simple explanation of the female anatomy — some of which I honestly did not know, despite the fact that I have indeed been a female for almost 38 years.
How all 158 members of the Irish parliament feel about Beyonce. Hysterical.
Really great skiing-with-kids advice from a mom of two in New England.
Very detailed and specific information on how to get involved in local politics (and RESIST!) from a dedicated group of former congressional staffers.
Ruth Bader Ginsburg works out with a personal trainer twice a week. And she bench presses more than you do. (Fine, more than I do. But I have a bad shoulder, so…)
The oxford comma is important, necessary, and apparently worth a bit of money. (See what I did there?)
