A Worrier’s Guide to Life

worriers-guide-to-life-gemma-correll

Full of comics simply drawn and clever, A Worrier’s Guide to Life is a fun, quick read. It is a little on the negative side, but so much of American humor is sarcastic or snarky, so I’m used to it, though I’ve become less so. Nonetheless Correll is clearly perceptive and funny. Her simple drawings have charm. It’s a book to get at the library for a quick read.

La Pere Nöel

Absolutely delightful, La Pere Nöel is a movie I could watch any day of the year. It’s a French film about a little boy around 7 years old whose father has died. He wants La Pere Nöel to take him to see his father.

While he’s struggling to sleep on Christmas Eve a burglar dressed as La Pere Nöel tiptoes into his apartment. The boy follows him out of the apartment and the bogus French Santa can’t shake him. He winds up getting the boy to help him steal gold because that’s what La Pere Nöel needs for fuel to power his sleigh and help the boy see his father.

The film has heart without being fake or saccharine. It should be a classic.

Trés drôle

To keep diners entertained while waiting for their food, a French restaurant made this video which is projected on to the table. Very clever, non?

Revolutionary! BookBook

I hope this catches on!
