Web Time Wasters

I recently realized that I would be remiss in my duties as your internet BFF if I kept posting Web Time Wasters on Fridays.  Because, you guys?  Sundays are a snooooooooze on the interwebz! Nobody’s posting anything new, everybody’s off brunching or nursing hangovers.  But come 3 p.m. you really kind of want to hunker down and look at funny pictures of cats and read cultural commentary, amiright?

On an vaguely related note, the above photo makes me think that I need to make a post entitled “Cute Baby Animals in Buckets.  Also: Drawers.  And Maybe Flower Pots.”

Awesome stuff from the internet!

Help raise money for help victims of the Christchurch earthquake by taking part in this virtual 5k.  And my girl Alex is giving away copies of her Self-Promotion Toolbox to anyone who donates to the Red Cross.Exciting stuff over on the Yes and Yes Every Buddy Board!  Book recommendations, awesome (and bizarre) recipes, money saving techniques and beauty products we can’t live without.

 

How have I been on this earth for 31 years and not known about Socially Awkward Penguin?!

You guys know I love lists.  I particularly loved this list of things that Andrea saw out the window of her train during an 18-hour, birtday trip.

Oh my.  These wearble planter necklaces are magical.

Super interesting!  What it’s like to live on the road, in a hotel.

Do you think Jessica Simpson is stupid?  The media would certainly have us believe she is.  Yet girlfriend has a fashion empire that earns almost as much as Michael Kors.  Hmmm….

I knew there was a reason!  Why we all love websites and photos of neatly arranged stuff.

You may remember my daliances with online dating?  A good article on how to navigate match.com et al.

Illustrations of dogs wearing hats.  I’ll take 15, please.

Kyla has a million great ideas.  I love this post on making your own mentor.

Wow.  Lily lost her battle with Cyctic Fibrosis, but while she was alive she kept an amazing blog as a “resource for people living with serious illness and other health issues to help them lead fulfilling, positive lives.

I never knew Mindy Kaling was a writer and executive producer on the Office! How cool! She and Ryan are my two favorite characters on that show. I love her even more now.
