Around The Internet #6

It feels like forever since I’ve done one of these!  It’s probably been around a month or so, but it feels like a lot has happened since then.

That’s all for today, and I hope you have a great week!

Around The Internet #5

Hello!  Since it’s been a while, I thought I’d do another post where I share some of the interesting things I’ve found on the internet.

That’s all I have for today, and I’ll be back with another one of these posts soon!

Around The Internet #4

Well, it’s time for another round of Around The Internet, where I share some of the really cool things I’ve seen on the internet.

  • I could have sworn I had shared this list of space-saving bookshelves, but it’s something to consider.
  • It’s pretty easy to find good fish tacos here in San Diego, but this Fish Taco Bowl does sound really good right now.
  • It’s interesting to see why people don’t use star ratings on goodreads.
  • When it’s finally cool enough to use the oven and not die of heat, I plan on making this meatball parmesan casserole.
  • It would be interesting to see a lot of these books as some sort of tv show.
  • I don’t listen to audiobooks often enough, but I really need to start listening to the audio books I get from audible.  There are great things about print/e-books and audio, but at least there are different formats to fit what’s going on in my life.  I do like listening to audio books when I crochet and on my commute to work.
  • The library tends to be my default when I need to donate books, but it’s good to know there are other options.
  • I really love these pictures of bioluminescent plankton.
  • Airports are very interesting places indeed.
  • Lemon bars sound really good right now.
  • Speaking of food, unsalted tends to be my go-to because you can always add more salt, but you can’t take salt out.
  • I may have to try out some of these recipes– summer is when my crock-pot gets used the most, but I like the idea of recipes that require no cooking.
  • I want, like, all of these tote bags.
  • In general, I tend to be in the camp go with whatever scents you like, but it is interesting that I am both a Gemini, and a fan of lavender.  It’s an interesting idea, pairing scents with astrology.
  • I really like a lot of these book holders.  I’m pretty sure I’d only use a cookbook holder, but they’re still cool to look at!
  • I don’t know if I could keep my goodreads TBR shelf at 100 books, but I’m impressed with people who can.  I do go through it occasionally and get rid of books I no longer want to read.  And this year, I’ve been pretty good about actually reading books on it, so it feels like it’s getting smaller.
  • If you’re a Murderino, you’ll probably like this list of books recommended by the hosts of My Favorite Murder.  I love My Favorite Murder, and I totally recommend it if you like true crime and comedy.
  • I love my local library, and I’d be lost without it.  I completely agree with this blog post about how useful libraries are. I can’t say that I’m surprised that someone would write an article about how getting rid of libraries would save taxpayers money, but they always seem to be written by 1- someone who’s never worked in a library and 2- someone who’s privileged enough to not need the resources of the library.
  • I disagree with some of the frozen foods some of these editors won’t buy since it seems so much easier to buy frozen pizza and tv dinners for when I don’t want to cook and don’t have any leftovers to eat.  I think the only frozen bread I’ve seen is garlic bread…and I don’t get the obsession with Halo Top  that people seem to have.  Especially since they use the fact that it’s low-calorie to eat the whole container, which makes no sense at all.  But whatever floats your boat, I guess.
  • As a medical receptionist, I complete agree with #9 and #13.  Also #24.  I could do a whole post about those points specifically (as well as some other things I see often).  I mean, I won’t, but I could.  I think this list is something to think about.

Until next time, everyone!

Around The Internet #3

It’s time for another edition of around the internet, where I share some of the cool and interesting things I find on the internet.

That’s all for now, but I’m sure I’ll be back with another one of these posts soon!

Around The Internet #2

I thought I’d do another one of these, since I had a lot of fun putting the last one together.  I’m not sure how often I’ll be doing these, but probably when I have a bunch of really cool things I want to share.

Around The Internet

I’ve been meaning to do a post like this for a while, but I never manage to actually get around to doing it!  I figured now might be a good time to share some of the really interesting (and weird, in some cases) things I’ve stumbled across the last few months.

And here’s a few things that I would definitely file under “This Week In WTF:”

This one definitely went longer than I thought, but hopefully, I’ll do another one of these soon!
