I loved Jim Hines's Seuss poem! Wow, he did a great imitation. I have to pass that one along.

It's a classic, but my favorite this week is the 'Where the hell is Matt?' video. I must have seen it a dozen times this week and I can't stop smiling throughout :)

I just watched it now. And I hadn't seen it before. It definitely brings the world closer, in a joyous way. I'm thinking wouldn't it be nice if bits of it were shown between everyone's TV shows at night, maybe once a week. Because I think we feel something in the moment and then too easily forget.

I've added it to my favorites. I plan to watch it every Monday morning, to get my week off to a good start :)

I've only known her a short while, but that Jenn is one smart lady :)

I also liked the one by that Hoover bloke ;)

That is a good one, but what about my 'Here's a complete list of everything I had for breakfast during the last eight months' post? :(

Jim Hines - that was brilliant! I confess I haven't got around to the others, except the rejection letter one, that was funny too :)

It is great that you compile these lists. I don't know how you find the time to trawl the internet but I'm happy you do!

It does take a little time, but I'm reading them anyway, so it's not much extra work.

I do recommend 'Because...', in fact, I just watched it again :)
