Some of the week’s stuff:
Morton Arboretum: I have always wanted to go here, and we Finally Made It this last Wednesday. The children’s garden is amazing and the kids got a ton of energy out. And I only lost SuperBoy once. Oh, wait, I have been to the Arboretum once – remember the oh so fateful first 5K? Ugh. Anyway, my love goes to the Arboretum and all it’s Arborialtorialness.
A book I’m enjoying this week. It’s dark comedy, but it is making me laugh. Some language issues, but I love the plotline of the man who bumbles his way through life, having accidentally burned Emily Dickinson’s house to the ground :
I also read this this week:
Rather teenagerish story of a girl falling in love with a vampire. Yep.
Seth Godin is an author my brother introduced me to. Well, not literally introduced me to. That would be embarrassing. Hey, Seth. Whaddup? Um. You rock?
Anyway, read his books if you have any interest at all in marketing issues or in leading the masses to follow you or in knowing when to quit (as discussed in his book The Dip.) You can link to his blog here. I’ve liked all his books and his blog insights on marketing… Although, I admit that the last thing I had to market was why the three children should indeed go to bed RIGHT NOW.
