Lorie’s List for 11/08/2013


This week has really flown by! A freelance project I’ve waited on finally came along and with NaNoWriMo in full swing I’ve been eyeballs deep in my computer all week! (On a side note, I’m behind in my word count for NaNoWriMo, but I’m alright with that – thanks to carving out time and focusing I’m not too far off the pace.) I did manage to dig up a few  (probably) random, (rarely) newsworthy and on (nearly every) occasion strange or unique stories, Maybe you’ll find something to share with your aunt during sewing circle this weekend.

  • A German shepherd is a baby’s best friend. At least, it is for one baby in Great Britain. A man and his dog were walking in a park when the dog was attracted to something in a bush. The man was expecting to find some sort of small game, maybe some abandoned kittens. He wasn’t expecting a new-born!
  • They call it a prank. I call it awesome. See what happens when 3 guys get into their buddy’s pizza shop after hours as part of prank involving 30 pizzas and the homeless.  
  • The skinny on a new World’s Record. 805 people in Bal Harbour, Florida took off their clothes and took to the water to take their place in the Guiness Book of World’s Record to break the skinny-dipping record. Event officials are preparing the official paperwork as well “video footage and high-quality color photographs” for Guinness officials – video and photos have not been made available. (Considering that the people skinny-dipping are usually not the ones you want to see skinny-dipping, no one is complaining.)

I’d love to hear from any NaNoWriMo folks out there about how things are going. Leave a comment below and share how week one has treated you.

If you have any ideas or if you’d like to Guest Write The List, I would love to hear from you! Send me a note here and we’ll get you on the blog!

Have a great weekend everyone!
