Friday Reading: Part 3

Well, it's been a crazy week!  We shared the news of our engagement with family and friends and then... life just sort of continued as if nothing had happened.  It's strange but nobody ever mentions that after the big moment, you still need to go to work, do the dishes, etc...   We're hoping to celebrate soon with a camping trip but work schedules and weather have not been cooperating. 

Yesterday, I participated in the selection process for the Toronto Real Estate Board's Government Relations Committee.  It was an intimidating but interesting process and the interview process was in the form of a focus group where we all had the chance to answer various questions.  Several of the other applicants were very distinguished and there was a former deputy mayor, former city councillor, the first brokerage franchise owner in Canada and a few former presidents of other real estate boards.  It was an honour just to be a part of the discussion but I was up late reading articles to prepare and I find that I'm pretty exhausted from the excitement of the week.

Corey and I also finished (we still need to paint but we still consider it finished) a little house project that I'm excited to share with you soon!  He's been knocking himself out (after finishing work after dark most nights this week) to finish it for me! 

I think we deserve a beer and maybe a day of lounging in bed and reading with our feet up.  How are you spending the weekend? 

For those of you taking a break at work, please enjoy some fun sites from around the web:

Crack the McDonalds Monopoly Game

Check out this cool gif showing how a standard key lock actually works

Try this Delicious Chicken Recipe.  I also put the sauce on asparagus before grilling it... Unreal!

I almost cried when I watched this video.  Can it be true that doctors saved this little girl by injecting her with an engineered version of the HIV virus?

Mr. Rogers deserves our respect... and for more reasons than I ever knew...

In case you missed my post on the subject, here's what happens when Toronto neighbours can't agree on whether to cut down a tree.

These videos of what life was like through the decades are so interesting!

Why are people afraid of the dark?

And in case you weren't terrified of the dark before, check out this picture of a bear without fur!  I'm not sure why, but that's not how I expected it to look.  This is the stuff nightmares are made of.

A cute idea.

Wouldn't these toys created from children's drawings make an awesome gift?
