If you read my other blog, Writing Between the Lines, you know that I’m taking a Facebook vacation. Since my blog posts to Facebook without my intervention, all my Facebook friends will see them, though. Nice loophole, huh?
The upside of my little hiatus is that there’s so much drama that’s NOT reaching me right now. The downside is I’m not seeing pictures of my children and grandchildren, although I’ll see them all on the 1st of November, when my vacay ends. Another downside is I have no way to share the weird, funky, political, and philosophical things I find on the web. So, in order to satisfy that need, I’ll just blog about them.
Today I was tooling around on StumbleUpon (almost as big a time suck as Facebook) and saw this.
Yep. Poo-Pourri. So that your poo doesn’t stink. Complete with a monogram bottle necklace. Yes, it’s a real product.
I found a lot of crafty ways to do things around the house at Tipnut.
I loved the wind chimes project. They also have a ton of DIY projects, household tips, cleaning information, and a bunch of other articles. Definitely worth a look.
I got lots of help on the internets. Who knew there was a correct way to fold a fitted sheet? Or that there were so many recipes for homemade laundry soap? There are videos on why you don’t send a man to the grocery store. If you’ve had more than one child, you’ll want to sit down before you watch that video.
Click on the picture for the actual recipe. I’m going to try this one.
Everyone knows that no woman is completely ready for dinner with the Boss until she has one of these on, and I don’t have one, so it was just a lucky coincidence that Heavenly Hostess ($4.95 flat rate shipping) appeared in my browser window.
And it comes in purple, too, among the other, less attractive colors. Should my husband ever have a Boss he wants to invite for dinner, made by the little woman, I’ll be ready.
I decided that I was on crafty overload, so I changed my interest to Gadgets. It was boring. I moved on to History. Then interesting sites came up – mental_floss for one. I love this site and the magazine. It fills my need to have masses of totally irrelevant information at my fingertips. Thinks like sneaky ways to wage war. There’s also a thing called the MOST INTERESTING Fact Generator. Here’s an example:
Go on, ask me who was the producer’s first choice to play Harry Callahan in Dirty Harry. And next time your spouse has the Boss over for dinner (don’t forget your purple hostess apron), entertain and mesmerize him with your knowledge of the top 10 real-life mob bosses.
Eventually real life beckoned, and I had to do other things. Besides, I got to the end of the Internet. There was nothing left to see.
