SHE SAID: Case of the Wednesdays?

March 23, 2010

Despite lugging my laptop along with me on my trip, the internet was broken.  To find other means of getting on-line was just too taxing, or, rather, I didn’t feel like driving 25 minutes to find some wi-fi so I could post on Monday morning.  I didn’t have internet for 4 days – the longest stretch I’ve done in years.  But, four books and 36 miles of running later, I’m back.

Lamebook.com.  I’m both awed and upset.  Awed at the amount of lame/weird/personal stuff people advertise on facebook and upset that while Jeremy and I have mocked our mutual friends who share too much, we didn’t think of starting up a site like this.  I highly recommend the relationship section.

Apparently this is the new thing to do as a teenage girl.  I’m so glad this stuff wasn’t around when I was in high school.

What would you do for five dollars?  I can’t think of anything right now, other than correctly load your dishwasher.

My friend came up with the term “bonsai’d” for when you’re getting pigeonholed at work and are allowed no upward movement, etc.  I am pretty psyched about the chance to use this phrase in conversation soon.  Until then, I think I might submit him for entry here.

SHE SAID: Case of the Mondays?

Lost

I was encouraged to get into this show over the summer and spent a considerable amount of rainy nights catching up.  Thankfully the weather was pretty terrible for a large part of the summer.  Had I realized I could have started the season fresh and blogged about the show having not watched a minute prior … well, I could have knitted several afghans and had several thousand people reading my bog.

Work Games

No, not something you’re going to play while sitting around the conference table.  These actually make it look like you’re working.

Lunch Lady Land

A teacher, who for some unknown and probably very insane reason, decided to eat her school lunch every day for a year and blog about it.  I’m guessing it had something to do with her being bored from living in the mid-west.  Although, her writing is very entertaining and it’s kind of like a public flogging – hard to refrain from checking out.

Leto

Remember when Jared Leto was hot?  Apparently, he’s doing everything he can to reverse that.  I think the metal studded pants make the look.

Localvores

“…locavorism may be about more than smug new-wave chefs blissing out over Vermont ramps and heirloom garlic: “Locavorism” might be the key to food security and better nutrition for all.”
