A Million Little Pieces

"If you don't get everything you want, think of the things you don't get that you don't want." ~Oscar Wilde

I just liked this quote...


So apparently Oprah apologozed to James Frey for lambasting him on her show after it was revealed that his best-seller A Million Little Pieces was not, in fact, a memoir. Why did she feel the need to apologize? I didn't read the book because as an author, I shared the feeling of betrayal...sure, I could market my novel as a memoir to get a publishing contract. But I didn't feel like lying to an agent/publisher/the general public.


Did you see this article about men in Saudi Arabia who can slap their wives for exorbitant shopping? Yet another reason I'm glad I live in the United States...


Turns out President Obama has a sense of humor. Did anyone see his speech at the White House Correspondents' Dinner? Not too bad at delivering his jokes. Here's a recap:

Thanks for sharing the clip. I had caught bits and pieces of it, but not as much as you showed.

Really enjoyed that one; had missed some of that originally - he has quite the sense of humor. I am pretty amazed and amused at some of the people he took on!!!
Glad you put that clip up!!
