Friday List!


 Jill's List:



Someone was just telling me about Brodeos.  I don't really know what a Brodeo is, but I imagine it to be something along the lines of this event, which included quotes such as:

He crushed putts and celebrated like, "What now, you lumpish boar-pig?"

Gotta love Bill Murray. He should come to the Brodeo.

Someone sent me this article and suggested that I use it in my sex-ed class.  It's going to be the best Current Events discussion ever.

Joanna and Alex do it.  So do Sarah and Adam.  And Johan and I are totally into it.  For us, right now, it's all about Homeland.  Read about "it" here.

My dress is made with Kofi Annan's brains?  Yeah, that's right.

To mark the release of this book, the follow-up to Bringing Up Bébé, here are a few links to other demi-Francophone Mom bloggers. And an early review of Bébé Day by Day.

Almost, almost as beautiful as Vlisco pagne, are the Cosby Sweaters. There really are some similarities, no? Here's Cosby himself reflecting on those sweaters

I really love this woman and this article was a little hard to read because I had to accept the fact that she's not actually Tami Taylor in real life. But is she really a "late bloomer?" Is 45 old? Evidence that is it not. I love how she says, "My life just got awesome five years ago."

P.S. We really love it when you send us ideas for links. Keep 'em coming small army of Mama Congo researchers.
