Good Reads on Good Friday

Let them eat cake!!!

Chocolate cake for breakfast = weight loss!. (Please please please please please let this study be true?!?)

I’ve said for years that chocolate is clearly a vegetable.  I mean...hellooo...cocoa BEANS!!!  Need I say more?  Now there is scientific evidence to sooo prove I’ve been right all this time.  Everyone make a note...this is one time I can say (whole heartedly and with feeling) I love science! 

Oh...and there is a sentence in there somewhere that says it can be psychologically damaging to avoid sweets entirely.  Yeah...THAT explains a lot. J  I know a few people who should avoid dieting for this reason alone.

True Facts about Bottled Water that Science doesn’t want you to know

And we’re back to hating science!  Yes...short lived, I know.

This information was released by the True Facts Institute of America, so it’s gotta be true! Right?!?  From now on I will only drink water that originates in heaven.

Thanks again, Internet.

Extreme Parenting 101 : Why you shouldn’t shoot your daughter’s laptop

Ok...I’ll be the first to admit...there have been times I was pushed to the edge of chunking my laptop out the front door while screaming explicatives loud enough for all the neighbors to hear...and my neighbors aren’t that close.  But seriously...firearms never crossed my mind.   Really!  But each his own, right?

Snails....They’re not just for lunch anymore!

I’m sorry...snails remind me way too much of leeches with shells to allow this to happen.  Much less to PAY them to do it.  I mean...can’t they just find snails out in the woods somewhere and try it at home...for free?  Just weird.

The beauty salon is the only one in the region using the snails' method, which is believed to help in speeding up regeneration of the skin, eliminating wrinkles, scars and traces of burn marks, according to the owner Alyona Zlotnikova.   REUTERS/Ilya Naymushin

I had NO idea Obama was a cat person!

MOSCOW - President Dmitry Medvedev reassured Russians on Wednesday that his cat Dorofei was safe after reports that it had run away made him an object of satire on Twitter.  - 28 Mar 2012

Ok...I would love to hear the captions you come up with for this photo.
As for a few Good Reads that will carry you through the weekend, here are a few books that might be something to check out.

If you're up for a real life "haunting" I recommend:

220 Fifth Street by Patrick Meechan
A terrifying true story of a seemingly ordinary house in a small mid-western town, 220 FIFTH STREET rivals the all-time great novels of its genre. This time however, there is no Hollywood hype. The story is entirely true and will have you on the edge of your seat, rethinking what you thought you knew about the spiritual realm. Finally, a haunted house story of truly Biblical proportions!

For a feel good, love is in the air but no one wants to acknowlege it story, I recommend:

Bloom by Julie Anne Lindsey
(I plan to read it in its entirety this weekend.)
In a town filled with her past, she never expected to find her future….
Seven years ago Cynthia left Honey Creek with a broken heart. Three years ago Mitchell arrived with one. Now Cynthia’s come home, and these two hardened hearts can’t stop arguing. If they’d only take a break long enough to find some common ground, they might be surprised to find love can grow anywhere.

If they let it, love will find a way to Bloom. if this book isn't alread popular enough...
The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins
(It really is better than the movie!!!)
In the ruins of a place once known as North America lies the nation of Panem, a shining Capitol surrounded by twelve outlying districts. The Capitol is harsh and cruel and keeps the districts in line by forcing them all to send one boy and one girl between the ages of twelve and eighteen to participate in the annual Hunger Games, a fight to the death on live TV. Sixteen-year-old Katniss Everdeen, who lives alone with her mother and younger sister, regards it as a death sentence when she is forced to represent her district in the Games. But Katniss has been close to dead before-and survival, for her, is second nature. Without really meaning to, she becomes a contender. But if she is to win, she will have to start making choices that weigh survival against humanity and life against love.

So....that concludes my Good Reads for Good Friday post.  I do hope you will check out my post on Everyday Sideways today as well.  I've been blessed beyond what I deserve...I hope & pray each of you are as well on this Easter weekend.  

Happy Easter!!
