A little weekend reading for you all. Have a good one! X

Break-ups. We’ve all been there. And here’s what it does to your grey matter, from Scientific American.

Still trying to get my hubby to fnish the quiz in Love Birds by Trevor Silvester – a book about the ‘types’ we fall into and how couples can understand each other better. Quite spooky how accurate it is.

Hands up who remembers their first love? A guy recounts running into his at a party, in this Good Men Project piece.

Ridiculous time-wasters do amuse me, so I love this Tumblr, Oops, Wrong Number – the results of sending strange texts to random numbers.

The proposal that ended a friendship. Yeah, I’d be pretty dirty if one of my hubby mates asked him to come over and choke the chicken, too. From Salon.

I’m a little late to this, but I love Conversations With My 2-Year-Old, and now there’s episode 2!
