The Weeklies #233

The Weekly Affliction. Exhaustion.

The Weekly Accessory. Cufflinks.

The Weekly Name. Uma Thurman's kid? Rosalind Arusha Arkadina Altalune Florence Thurman-Busson. Or Luna for short. Naturally.

The Weekly Feat Of Awesomeness. Felix Baumgartner's 24 mile skydive.

The Weekly Read. In what seems to be an ongoing trend of angst-driven, moderately humorous family dramas, I read Matthew Norman's Domestic Violets. While it doesn't rise to the stellar levels of the previously reviewed The Revised Fundamentals of Caregiving and One Last Thing Before I Go, it was a strong book and well worth reading.

The Weekly Office Supply. Binders.

The Weekly Asshat. Flavor Flav. Though that's really not restricted to this week.

The Weekly Question. What is your most treasured possession?

Its odd, but its the coffee mug I use at work. It took me a long time to find one that was just the right size, was sturdy, kept my coffee hot, etc., so if I can't find it for whatever reason, it just throws me off my game until I'm able to track it down. Completely not rational for something that only cost me $5, but there it is.

An old pitcher painted with flowers in fall colors that was my late mother's. I doubt that it has any monetary value, but it reminds me of her + simplier times. I'd grab it first on my way out the door during an emergency.

The crucifix that my mother's best friend and her father had as part of their funeral masses. I feel like God watches over my home, wherever it is, more because they're in heaven and loving me, too.

The locks of hair that I clipped from my daughter just before she passed away.
