And here’s this week’s best stuff on the Internet, according to me.

If you have yet to watch this video of grandmas smoking ganj for the first time, you are in for a treat!
You know how some people “can’t live away from the water”? I just stumbled upon this book that explains the science behind that. Sounds like an excellent read!
The reason I am still kinda psyched about my capsule wardrobe: a lot of smart, successful people do it to lessen their decision fatigue. I will say ALL of the people mentioned in that article are men, which annoys me. Do you know many successful women who wear the same thing everyday? Probably not. Double Standardsville!
Celebrating Friendsgiving? Here’s Tess Rafferty’s guide to not being a A-hole guest.
Some jerk took the time to Photoshop a picture of Guy Fieri without his human lava lamp signature hairdo… and I for one could not be more grateful.
And on a more serious note…
If you live in the Twin Cities, you’ve probably heard a little about Nora & Aaron’s love story, with some cancer. I don’t know these two, but we have lots of people in common. They’re about my age, have been married a few years, & have a really adorable kid named Ralphie. They’re funny, interesting and like to do the same kind of stuff I do– concerts at First Ave, watching Netflix all weekend. I see a lot of my marriage in theirs. However, there is one big difference:
Aaron is currently in hospice.
It’s sad and it’s unfair, but death doesn’t care much about that. I’ve in absolute awe of how these two have handled Aaron’s illness, and now his death. They’ve chosen to be brave and honest, something a lot of us aren’t when we’re talking about the D word.
Anyhow, you can read more about these two here. If you feel compelled (as I did), make a donation or buy one of these kick-ass shirts to help support Aaron’s hospice care/Nora & Ralphie through the next few months.
Keep these three in your thoughts.
