Damn You AutoCorrect!

The "25 Funniest AutoCorrects of 2012" is, by far, the funniest thing I read all year. Enjoy.

Not McLovin that McRib...

Quite possibly the most disgusting thing I read all year was the Yahoo Finance story 11 Amazing Facts about the McDonald's McRib.

Scary quote:
The entire McRib sandwich contains about 70 ingredients — including a flour-bleaching agent used in yoga mats.
It's enough to make you go vegan...

Recipe on Repeat

The recipe I cooked most often in 2012 (aside from oatmeal and scrambled eggs) is this quick zucchini saute from Smitten Kitchen. It's an older recipe, but I found it this year.

Simple. Easy. Delicious.

The Blog Posts That Influenced Me Most:

Miss Zippy's "It's never the right time" struck a chord. Among other things, I've been putting off quitting my day job to pursue teaching/consulting. Sometimes today IS the right time... MCM Mama's "You don't own busy" was similarly inspiring.

Kim's New 2 U Cross Training Challenge has been a monthly adventure throughout 2012.

The Wannabe Athlete's Twitter tips also came in handy as I made the plunge into the Twitterverse.

Random Acts of Kindness

I'm a sucker for random acts of kindness stories. The news is filled with stories of crime and victimization, but every day people do nice things for one another...

My favorite acts-of-kindness stories this year were (in no particular order):

Seasons Greetings!

Quote of the Week:
"An optimist stays up until midnight to see the New Year in. A pessimist stays up to make sure the old year leaves."

Happy 2012, friends!
