The weekly wrap-up is back!

Did everyone survive Black Friday? I barely made it out alive, having broken my vow to stay away from all things shopping. Never again! (until next year?)

Ok, I know it’s been a while, but it’s time to bring back the wrap-up, because I’ve found some really cool stuff.

Here’s the travel stuff:

I love me some Christmas markets, and really can’t wait to get a chance to spend the holidays in Europe. Prague FTW!

Got jet lag? Here’s one potential fix. Personally I’d want a little of a guarantee given that price tag.

I really, really hate those TSA full body scanners, so this drive to opt-out has my full support. I know in some places you can’t opt out, but I will where I can.

Via @JohnnyJet, the National Park service has announced their free days for 2013. I am an even bigger fan of the parks with all my trips to Yosemite and the Grand Canyon, and this is a great way to encourage everyone to get to the park!

Too fat to fly? This article points out that Air Canada will give obese people an extra seat if you have a doctor’s note for your ‘medical condition’. Sounds great, expect for the part where the rest of the passengers are basically subsidizing the cost of that extra seat. Not to sound heartless, but that doesn’t seem fair. How about just making the seats a little bigger in the first place?

No more nudity in San Francisco. Guess I’ll need more than a carry-on for my next trip!


And the non-travel stuff:

 This article about what happens to your blog when you die was interesting. I mean, I don’t make any money off this blog, what with my tens of readers (have I said thank you lately? Thanks!!!). Still, I hadn’t thought about this stuff before, so that was a good thing.

How does your dog smell? This researcher has figured it out, and it’s more complicated than you think.

Did you enjoy the Macy’s Thanksgiving Parade? Great – thanks for encouraging the destruction of life on earth as we know it. Or something maybe not quite so dramatic, but I digress. Who knew we are are running out of helium?

Ok, that’s it for this week. Hope you all had a fantastic weekend!
