Here are the (more than) Five Things for Monday, November 19, 2012:
Hey, I’m back from vacation! Yes, I’m fully back this week… Well, except that Thursday and Friday are vacation days as well. But still, it’s more like “business as usual” as compared to last week.

Oh no! Maybe there seriously aren’t that many events today, given that it’s Flag Day in Brazil. As a result, our events calendar for today is a bit barren. If you’re having an event, please let us know in the comments. Also, make sure it isn’t left out in the future – Submit it via this link (as long as you’re logged into your Patch account).
Give the gift of food this holiday season. Children’s Dentistry of Wakefield is having a food drive from now until Dec. 19. For more info, click here.
Sign up for our daily newsletter! Hey, I realize we have a lot of neat features and knick-knacks on the site, so it can be confusing to keep up with it all. Want just one simple, easy to read daily digest? Sign up for our e-mail newsletter here then. It comes out between 6 a.m. and 7 a.m. roughly, every single day of the week. Amazing, I know!
Let’s go see some talkies, kids! On this day in 1916, Samuel Goldwyn and Edgar Selwyn founded Goldwyn Pictures. The studio would eventually become MGM, and you probably know them well for Leo the Lion.
You really should have done more episodes of Curb, then I’d like you more. Happy 51st birthday to America’s sweetheart Meg Ryan.
