Good News Friday

Ryan and I have decided to reinstate Good News Friday, which I think is very good news. Here are a few choice items for you on this lovely, rainy, quiet kind of day.

1) Farmville. I mostly joined this app on Facebook to make fun of my coworker whose Newsfeed let me know that he was "givin' up city life and startin' a farm!" SO lame that I couldn't help but mock. However, once I started a farm of my own (expecting to delete it 5 minutes later), I admittedly got a bit hooked. And apparently I'm not alone. According to this article, 11 million users are joining Farmville daily, and in two months it will rival my other favorite, World of Warcraft, for highest online play. Probably because unlike WoW, Farmville only requires you check it daily and harvest whatever crops have bloomed. Pretty simple, pretty fun.

2)The original Winnie-the-Pooh drawings. These are so adorable, and I haven't seen them in a long long time. There's something simple and pure here that makes me very happy. Enjoy.

3) Sorry I Missed Your Party. It's pictures of other people's parties, from Flickr. Some of these are great. My favorite one is: "The 2nd worst rave I've ever been to."

4) The reason some girls stay single. HILARIOUS. Apologies if I already passed this along to you (namely, Ryan), but it's so great it's worth listening to again.

5) Baby Alice. My sister keeps rick-rolling me with this video, which I know Ryan has seen but it is oh-so-adorable, so I thought I'd post it here too. It makes me smile. Cutie pie.

Originial Winne The Pooh drawings are awesome. Is it wrong that I find myself just staring at them? Very peaceful.
