Rand and I are on the road this week, which means that I put this roundup together last week.

So if something major happened in the last five days, the Geraldine of last Sunday (who is currently writing this post) doesn’t know about it yet. Hopefully, nothing I say will be too offensive in the context of recent events, which I presently know nothing about.

But just to be on the safe side, here’s template. Please fill it in accordingly:

I feel very __________ about _____________.

And with that, here are the links:

A single mom explains why we all need to stop lying in our Facebook posts.

I may be totally biased, but I highly recommend that you donate to the Veronica Mars Movie Kickstarter.

NPR explains that the first encounter between humans and neanderthals went, well … let’s just say better than expected.

A young boy greets the Duchess of Cambridge, and unabashedly picks out a present for her.

Serial entrepreneur Graham Hill writes about how living a life unencumbered by stuff gives him a lot of joy, and a lot less stress. It’s the perfect read to inspire your spring cleaning. And it’s a great reminder that if you not only have stuff, but actually have too much of it? Then you are ridiculously fortunate.

I recently made Smitten Kitchen’s white chocolate salted oatmeal cookies. Here’s the thing: I don’t like oatmeal cookies. Or white chocolate. So please don’t take it lightly when I tell you: these suckers are friggin magical.

It’s a Boston terrier … dressed up as Leeloo from The Fifth Element.

 

This “Follow the Frog” PSA, created by the Rainforest Alliance, is a great example of content marketing done right. And holy crap, is it entertaining.

—————

I’ve heard the story of teen activist Malala Yousafzai before, but for some reason, I found this comic of her assassination attempt to be more powerful than many of the other stories I’d seen about it.

—————

The clothing of the Herero tribe in Southern Africa is colorful, eclectic, and all together engrossing.

—————

This video, of 6-year old breakdancing phenom B-girl Terra, will make your jaw drop. It certainly did mine.

That’s it for me this week! Or that was it for me last week … or … Ack. Nevermind. Enjoy the weekend, folks.
