Friday Round Up
Yep, it's Halloween today! I must confess, I have not felt very Halloween-y this year. Truth be told, I am not a huge Halloween person to begin with, really. Yes, I did the whole trick-or-treat thing as a child and all of that, but I've only gone to a handful of Halloween parties past childhood, probably the most fun one I've been to having been back in the ole college days. Anyway, I have seen some fun holiday-themed treats around the web this week, but probably my favorite one has to be these Sugar Skull Cake Pops from Bakerella. Obviously they are more Day of the Dead than your typical Halloween, but that's what I like about them. They're so cute and fun! Also, for those of you who are Supernatural fans, you should probably recognize that pumpkin I featured above with the woman on fire on the ceiling shadowed onto the wall. Pretty cool effect.
On to other things! Some of you may know that Daniel Radcliffe is stepping out of Harry Potter's shoes a bit this weekend with his new movie, Horns. What you may not have known, is that he can rap! What? Apparently he's really into rap and even performed a fairly complicated song on The Tonight Show the other night. Impressive!
I don't know about those of you that read this here blog, but myself? I am a rather shy person in real life. Always have been, suspect I always will be. Yeah, I was the little girl hiding behind her mom's leg. Sometimes shyness can make life difficult when you're in the workplace, as our communication style is not quite the same as the more gregarious coworkers. This article talks about how managers should work with shy employees, and I was thinking a whole lot of "yes!" while I was reading it.
As if we needed one more thing to worry about, but apparently science is now linking the number of eggs a woman has to her chances of having a heart attack. What the heck! It has to do with the whole estrogen balance and aging in general, it sounds like, than more specifically the actual eggs themselves. But some women do go through menopause earlier than others, and they are more at risk for these types of diseases and such.
Have a Happy Halloween!
