Just sitting here, balancing my bowl of Special K on my knees. The box promises that if I all day/every day  do bowls of their cereal, I'll drop a jean size in two weeks. What have I got to lose? (sorry, couldn't help myself.)

I'll let you know in two weeks. In the meantime, this week's edition of In Case You Missed It, some of the best, brightest, funniest, sweetest, saddest, all around good reads on the internet. How I love the internet, it's like an endless issue of Ladies' Home Journal. With a whole lot more self disclosure.

In Case You Missed It: This was good on the internet

--My friend, Mark, of Our Simple Lives. I love this blogger: his photos together with how you know he knows what's important, always sets my day on the right course. A few seconds there is all you need today, with his Ode To Christmas with Children. He says it all with one photo, one phrase, "And so it begins."

--One of the  funniest things I read today: from the must follow Gawker site. The highlights of Lindsay Lohan in Liz and Dick. Funny, funny. Example, "She breathes heavy a lot. She cries a lot." Gawker with "Here Are The Highlights of Lindsay Lohan's Atrocious Acting in Liz and Dick."

--Tomorrow is #GivingTuesday. For everything you need to know about this special day, click over to Alexandra Sears of Alexandrawrote. Click over and get the give out. Anyone can do their part, there is no such thing as "too small," and there are more ways to give than through money.

--This made me laugh out loud. Louis CK's SNL skit parodying the movie Lincoln. Saw the movie with my teens and fell in love with it, but this "Lincoln: The Man" via SNL is hilarious. (seeing "lincoln" doing stand up: priceless)

Have a great week, everyone!


  1. I've often wondered about the Special K diet. I think it says you need to use skim milk. The lowest I can go is 2%. I just might try it myself.

  2. I have a feeling that if ALL I ate was Special K, I still wouldn't lose weight. I think it's permanently fixed!

  3. nice...i enjoyed marks picks...comments were closed or i would have said hello to him....smiles...

    loading up the SNL skit right now...ha...this should be fun...smiles.

  4. I love Mark!
    I don't always comment on ICYMI but I always click over to who you recommend. Because if you say they're awesome, they must be.

  5. I heart Mark and wish he would put his damn comments on again. xo

  6. Excellent roundup! Hope you had a lovely Thanksgiving!



  7. I love Mark's blog as well!
    Why can't it Special K taste like Lucy charms? I could surely eat that for 2 weeks

  8. Oh, I love Mark. Sadly, I haven't stopped by his home in entirely too long. Thanks for this reminder and for all the wonderful bloggers you always introduce us to!

    Also, am I the only one who hasn't seen Liz & Dick yet? I'm dying to, for the sheer absurdity of it alone... but that Lindsey. I just can't stomach her.
