Also, as usual, I am featuring many photos from my friend and amazing intstagram photographer Neil Kramer - of the blog Citizen of the Month - who was still in New York this month, beautifully capturing the spirit of our wondrous city.
It's a lot of posts this month. I've been a fair bit insomniac, which leads to lots of reading. Also there's a lot of autism related posts. (Maybe to make up for my not writing that much about autism myself lately?)
Whatevs. Without further ado... Enjoy!

This month Neil added a little twist to some of his photos - captions that transform them into perfect mini-dramas. Here are two of my favorites:
|"I'm not in love with you anymore," she told him the next morning. "I'm also sleeping with your brother." (Photo: Neil Kramer)|
|"Look at this schmuck, walking around with his phone out like he's married to it. You know he's not getting laid." (Photo: Neil Kramer)|

Hope you found something new and interesting to read. Or re-discovered an old "friend" of a blog that fell of your reading list.
And if you come across anything in the course of your reading that you think "This is a fantastic thing that is just up Varda's alley, she should read this and feature it in her monthly round-up post!"? Let me know about it via Twitter - @SquashedMom.
(And finally three more wonderful Neil photos, just because...)
