1. For the next few days, I’m the semi-proud driver of a Volvo. It was the smallest rental car available. Simon Bennett, the victim of a (very minor) sideswipe last week, is having his scratches and dents repaired courtesy of Liberty Mutual. I already miss him and his cute checkerboard top and his manual transmission – I really wish all American rentals weren’t automatically automatics.
2. For one of the funniest posts I’ve read in a long time, visit my friend’s weblog. (It’s short. And hilarious.)
3. A friend of mine is involved in a 10 Days to 10 Million project, seeking to share love with as many people as possible in the days between now and Thanksgiving. According to the website, one in three people currently feels some kind of sadness or anxiety – in other words, a third of the population needs to know that they’re loved and cared about. Given my own 23+ year battle with depression, I know how much a quick note or call to someone can mean. So, visit the site, watch the 3:45 film, read the text, and then let someone know you care.
