Drink of the Week:
Leinenkugel’s Summer Shandy
It’s like a lemon aid beer. I thought it would be gross but it turned out to be quite refreshing and summery.
Video that Made Me Sad and Inspired me at the Same Time:
I saw this on Rage Against the Minivan – by Kristen Howerton this week and had to share it.
I really think he should have shouted “Jesus wants the rose!”
Thing that Made me Furious this Week:
Our heroes deserve better than the rampant sexual assault that is going unchecked in the military right now. If you haven’t seen The Invisible War make it a point to see it. It’s on Netflix.
Best Blog of the Week:
“The point is, we treat sexual sins and the loss of virginity very differently from other sins, as a class of sin unto itself. And how do we make that happen? We accomplish this by framing these sins almost exclusively with purity metaphors. And in doing so we recruit a psychological system built upon a food-aversion system, a system driven by disgust, revulsion, and nausea. But instead of directing these feelings toward food we are now directing the feelings of disgust, revulsion and nausea toward human beings. More, we teach our children to internalize and direct these feelings toward themselves.”
TED Talk that Made Me Want to Jump Up and Cheer this Week:
What I’m Reading this Week:
The Lovely Bones by Alice Sebold
Song of the Week:
Little Talks by Of Monsters and Men. I love songs that sound super happy but are actually sad. I saw a great version of this performed by two middle school students this week.
