Friday Five and October Challenge

First off, I failed my own damn challenge.  I did not get my 10 projects done.  Theonlycat being sick took most of my time, money and emotional energy this month.  I'm tapped.  I did get a lot of small things done at least so that's always a good thing.  Anyone else challenge themselves this month?  How did it go?

Well enough of my failures, it's been awhile since I've done Five list.  So let's get on with it shall we?

Recommend Five!

1)  Recommend a book: Lamb: The Gospel according to Biff, Christ's childhood pal. - Christopher Moore. (linky)  Whether you're religious or not you will absolutely LOVE this book.  It's funny, it's touching, it's inspiring.  It really has it all in one book.  It covers what could have happened during the parts of Jesus' life that are not in the Bible.  Fantastic read.

2) Recommend a college/university/personal interest class: Any class about a culture that is not your own.  There is something about throwing yourself deep into another culture that really opens your eyes to your own life.  Plus the more you understand about people who are different than you, the harder it is to hold any kind of hate or fear of them.

3) Recommend a song:

You're welcome.  Really anything else by Stromae, too.

4) Recommend a website: I think several of my readers are already on it, but Ravelry.  If you do ANY form of yarn crafting this is the place for you.  This is probably my most visited site outside of my gmail.

5) Recommend anything else: Dance when you're alone.  Put on some upbeat music you love and just go.  Not only is it good exercise, it's good for the soul.  I promise it is impossible to be sad, or angry after dancing.  I have a playlist on my phone for those crap-tastic days and when I get home I close the curtain, crank it up as loud as I can go to town.  I ALWAYS feel better afterwards.

Happy Friday and Happy Halloween!!  I hope everyone has a safe and happy weekend.  Much love!!
