Here are 12 things I learned in March in no particular order:
1. Keifer Sutherland has a twin sister. I don’t know how I never knew this, but I didn’t. Now, because of this photo, I won’t ever forget it. And, you won’t forget it either. You’re welcome.
2. Evaporated cane juice is sugar. Nice try, though.
3. Natural peanut butter is not nearly as gross as I made it out to be in my mind. In fact, I don’t think I will ever go back to the . . . unnatural kind.
4. Evidently my idea of a long post and your idea of a long post is different. It seems people don’t care so much about how long a post is as long as you have something to say.
5. Everything is a Remix. This concept isn’t new to me, but watching this video drove the point home.
6. Omelet? Yes. French toast? Meh. I did not know this about myself until last week.
7. Audio books are the best thing ever. I learned this several years ago while listening to Jim Dale read Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire, but I promptly forgot. And so I re-learned it this March. (This time it was The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society, if you must know. I’m often 5 years behind the world in reading books. I know this.)
8. I also learned they might be filming a movie of the book staring Kate Winslet as Juliet Ashton. This would be a win for everyone.
9. Dreaming with my husband is more powerful and life-giving than dreaming on my own.
10. I have seen 20 Julia Roberts movies (if you count her voice work for animation). This is still shocking to me. I don’t even consider myself a big Julia fan, but when I went on IMDb and clicked on Julia Roberts filmography and started counting, well. These are the kinds of things the internet makes possible for us to know about ourselves.
11. The actor who plays Deacon on Nashville and the actor who played Jim’s boss at the Stamford branch in The Office have always looked a lot alike to me. But I finally googled it and realized they look alike because they are THE SAME PERSON. Charles Esten. Mind equals blown.
12. It takes me a long time to process what I’m learning on a soul level. I knew this to an extent, but doing these posts have made that even more clear to me.
Last week I sent out my first real newsletter of the year. If you know you were signed up before Tuesday March 26 but didn’t receive it, email me with “newsletter” in the subject line and the email address you used to sign up and I’ll make sure you receive this next one. We had a few hiccups last week. If you haven’t signed up but want to receive tomorrows newsletter, you can do that here.
What is something you learned in March? (Clearly nothing is too insignificant. See also 10 Things I Learned in February.)
