Weekly Wrap-Up (6.29.12)

Boy Bands, Round Two
Last week I wrote a little my love for and posted the music video of One Direction's smash hit, "What Makes You Beautiful". A week and several mocking text messages, Facebook messages, and emails later, I still love the song, no matter how dorky and childish that makes me seem. And I still love the song after watching/listening to this hysterical parody. (This video is only appropriate for adults - send your One Direction-crazed tweens out of the room before watching.)

Duct Tape
This is a picture of my brother-in-law. Duct taped to a wall. You see, he's a principal of an elementary school and when his students accomplished some kind of goal having to do with a food drive, he let them tape him to a wall and pull the stool on which he was standing out from under him. I think it's also important to note that he's 6 ft. 3 in. tall; it takes A LOT of duct tape to make sure a man of that size sticks to a wall.

Say What?
I realize this video was posted to YouTube years ago, and that many of you have already watched it (or chosen not to watch it, if you're the kind of person who doesn't appreciate talking cats), but I'm going to post it here anyway. When I'm having a bad day, a quick viewing of this video cheers me right's been viewed more than 6 million times, and I estimate that my sister and I are responsible for only like 140,000 of them.

Red Cross: Summer Shortage
Unfortunately the 4th of July and a shortage of blood on hospital shelves go hand-in-hand, nearly every single year. Find out more about how you can help by clicking here!
