1. Hug it out. I've been watching quite a bit of the Late Show with Stephen Colbert. He makes me laugh and I think he's super cute. I've noticed that he hugs all his guests. I'm going to go on record as saying I'm in favor of hugging late night guests.

2. Grief fascinates me. I've thought about it often, and as a psychotherapist I spent many years in practice helping others cope with their grief. While there is a lot to be said about it, grief continues to puzzle me. My question for all of you is, does grief have a purpose? If it does, than what is it? Seriously, help me out here. Looking for scientific, spiritual, magical, thoughts and ideas of all kind.

3. Sometimes you just need to hear your bestie's voice on the phone.
