What does the fox say? (& Friday links)


Have you seen the music video, “What Does the Fox Say?” That song has been spinning over and over in my head (or rather, just some of the sounds from it). So funny!

Any little foxes around your house for halloween? We have a rabbit in the works… though I’ll no doubt be putting in some time with felt and a hot glue gun tonight. I’m excited that Halloween falls on a Saturday this year so that we can all celebrate together. We usually head downtown for trick-or-treating and a showing of Charlie Brown at The Varsity before meeting up with lots of other families for a small get-together. I love seeing all the creativity that people put into this holiday. (Though I’m a total scaredy-cat, so all the haunted-house side of it is not for me.) I’ll post a photo on Instagram.

And then on Sunday, I’m taking Hudson to the Mondavi center for a children’s play. I can’t believe it will be November! (And the end of daylight savings!)

What are your plans for the holiday? Will you dress up?


Some links of note if you’re online…

Last-minute Halloween inspiration (and my favorite costumes for kids this year).

The NYT tries to parse the (scary) link being made between some meat and cancer.

And on that note, egg and mushroom pizza anyone?

Good grammar to get the first date. (Interesting that it’s more important to a man’s profile!)

Thank you for all the wonderful comments on the post about sharing! This is also an interesting take on the subject.

The Facebook foxes. And the cutest video of a fox hunting in the snow.

Also, we’re meeting at our bookclub to talk about The Vacationers on Thursday. What good books are you reading lately?
