Weekend Odds and Ends


V is For Vulnerable: This inspired and inspiring book is written by Seth Godin and illustrated by Hugh Macleod.  It sure looks like a book for kids, with the entire alphabet outlined in the spirit you see above. But with phrases like A is for Anxiety and F is for Feedback, you’ll quickly discover that the actual plan is to get under your skin and give you a new way to think about your work, with an added bonus of putting a smile on your face.  If you have been giving high school and college graduates a copy of the book “Oh the Places You’ll Go” to inspire them on their journey. This year you might want to consider this book instead.  Scroll down to see how you can win your own copy!

  1. Love Odds and Ends. It is fun. The mood swing picture is too funny.
    W is for Woods and Wave, I like both!

  2. “D,” of course!! It’s for Debbie, Dallas, and Domer!

    Great customer service listing. Interesting mood swings picture — hadn’t thought of it that way, ha!

    • Excellent!! I thought the swing were very clever. The customer service listing mentioned several of my favorite stores. I love and support anything that makes my life easier/

  3. a lesson learned at the apple store that can’t be done as well in class. kudos teacher!
    the video just reinforces more wariness with cats.
    had no idea cows could act like dogs & horses!

    • The cat video was a little frightening. I didn’t know that about cows either, they seems like such slow moooving animals.

  4. Of course I like the Canadian cartoon. And if you’ve ever driven to Canada and crossed at a land border crossing you would know how true it is.

    Matt’s favorite letter of the alphabet is G because that’s the seventh letter and 7 is his lucky number. Matt is, in case it wasn’t obvious from that, a numbers guy.

    Me, I’m a person of letters. I like all the letters of the alphabet. I’m not sure I could even pick a favorite. B for Ben maybe. But how about M for Matt. Or C for Chicago and Canada. Or Y for Yellow, the happy color. And then there are all the other great letters. I really can’t decide!

    • Glad you saw and liked the cartoon.
      Matt, being a number guy is a good thing,based on his line of work, right?
      Y does seem happy—it’s even throwing it’s arms up in a big YAY sign.
