Web Time Wasters

You guys!  How was your week?  This was my last week in Wellington, New Zealand (over wrought emotional post to come) so I spent most of it having drinks/coffees/dinners with friends.  Next up, I’m heading to Melbourne, Sydney, San Francisco, Sacramento and then back to Minnesota for a few months at the lake with my fam.  In preparation, I’ve been paring my 10 belongings down to 7 belongings and walking along the bay drinking coffee.  Like, every day.  Sometimes twice.

Who cares, Sarah?  Stop talking about yourself!  Bring on the links!

Interesting post about why we lie. How often do you lie – white lies or otherwise?

Creating a blog that reflects who you are.

I ate one of the best meals of the year yesterday at Eateria de Manon – an adorable European place tucked down an alley in Newtown, Wellington.  For $50 you get five courses (including fancy palate cleansers!), a roaring fire and sweet French music.  Absolutely perfect.

If you follow The Post College Survival Kit on twitter or facebook, you can take part in our upcoming webinar on loan consolidation, debt, savings and having fun even if you’re broke.

What do you think about the internet’s obsession with girl-like women?  Always with the cupcakes and kittens and dresses with tights?  I found this article really interesting: Don’t Fear The Dowager: A Valentine To Maturity.

On the Every Buddy message board we’re talking about making friends while we travel, sharing blogging tips and tricks and the tv shows and movies we love.

I have three more openings for people seeking hook-ups in June’s Network of Nice and heaps of spots for people who can provide a hook up.  If you’ve got expertise to share, email me!

Also: I’d love to do a pair of True Story interviews called “True Story: I’ve Had 70+ Sexual Partners” – one interview with a man and one with a woman.  I’m pretty sure I’ve got the male interview lined up, but I haven’t found a woman yet.  Is that you, or anyone you know?  If you’re feeling shy, you can (obviously) do the interview anonymously.  Drop me a line at sarah (at) yesandyes (dot) org.

Love these web time wasters!

Good luck with your travels. SF is fabulous. I lived there for a couple years, and miss it.

I'm also returning to MN in time for the summer! Did you hear about the record-high days they just had? As long as it's not record-high-mosquito-count, I think I can deal. 🙂

Hi Sarah, wow I can't believe this is your last week in Wellington. I live in the Wellington region and it would be a pretty cool coincident if we ran up to each other accidentally. xD

The gorgeous blog clip art is very neat. *Printing some cute stuffs out*

That story about the Child Brides is heart breaking.

My friend's daughter is 5 – I can't even comprehend her getting engaged/married at that age – to her marriage is when a mummy and daddy love each other – or prince charming meets the princess and they live happily ever after.

My "little sister" is 12 – she's not really my sister but she's as good as a sister so I look at her that way. She's sitting her end of year exams this week and again I can't even imagine that in those cultures she'd be getting married.

Both of these girls come from Christian families and so when the day does come that they look at getting married then parents and church family will be involved I'm sure to make sure that they know about the decision they are making is a big one.
