1.) When Christmastime comes around I always start expecting treats every day. Because treats seem to be so prevalent throughout December, that on the days that there are no treats I find myself looking around for them. Surely there must be a plate of fudge somewhere in my apartment. Shouldn't there be a tin of brittle left on my doorstep? A bag of caramels? Cookies?
2.) Speaking of Christmas treats I read an article in which the author was disproportionately passionate in her loathing of grapefruit as a holiday gift. Is this a thing? Do people really give grapefruits as gifts? She was writing as if this was a common practice and yet this was the first I've heard of it. But then, every other person I know has a citrus tree in their backyard. If I gave a basket of grapefruit as a gift I would expect the reply, "Um, thanks?" She was also writing as if everyone hates grapefruit. Hogwash. I think it's yummy.
3.) It's not like I'm waiting at every door for a gentleman to open it for me, but this article on chivalry struck a chord. I think we need to bring it back. Or at the very least, encourage men to not shove women out of life boats.
4.) We were testing out Spenser's music video app at the institute. What can I say, it's finals week.
