Because I know you want to know.
1. The Worst Witch.
Best. Halloween Movie. EVER.
So, me and my sister grew up with this when it was a seasonal HBO special. It's about a girl at a witches' academy who's a bit of a disaster and just can't seem to do anything right.
It may be needless to say, but as an 11-year-old, I could TOTALLY relate.
This year, I discovered that I could buy it on DVD on Amazon, and I flipped out. We've been watching it all week.
2. New Hunger Games Posters.
The fabulous Lori Lee linked to these on Twitter and I had to take a good five minutes out of my day for deep breathing and composing myself.
Hold on. Gonna have to take another minute.
3. Jelly filled challah.
So, remember when Francesca was hungry on Monday? And you know how my Jewish mother genes get all twitchy when I hear about hungry students? And how I started freaking out and brainstorming how I could create a shippable Toaster Pastry?
Yeah. This happened. I think this is better. (Of course I taste tested it. And then, um, ate a whole loaf.)
And here's the big big superhugest news of the last three months.
The first draft of ONE is done!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I am too giddy and have waaay too many posts to write about this first draft, its messiness, its beauty (at least to me!), and its relentless pull at my heartstrings. But for now, I'll just share my very favorite most beloved line(s) of the whole thing so far.
The ground beneath my feet buzzes, like it’s too solid to handle me, like I don’t even belong there. Not anymore.
Eeeek! Can't wait to share more with you!
So - What about you? What were you obsessed with this week?
