Silly Site o' the Day

White Rabbits, happy 18th birthday to our cat Amy, and happy April Fool's Day, everyone! Remember, much of what you read online today will be fake, and some of it may be cruel, but I'm hoping most of it will be clever instead. I look forward to adding to this thread throughout the day with some of the wittier sites. Here's one to start you off Warby Barker, via I Has a Hotdog.

ETA:Peter Capaldi punches a Dalek in the eye, is suspended from Doctor Who.

Silly Site o' the Day

Snow again, during my homeward-bound commute. I won't be sorry to see the end of March. The winter could have been worse - in fact, it was worse last year - but it was unpleasant enough. So let's look ahead. The TV seasons confuse me now, too many of them are ending and it's only March, but a few are starting up again, so this one's for the Game of Thrones fans out there - Yo, Hodor (via Laughing Squid).

Silly Site o' the Day

April Fool's Day is only a couple days away. I have a fondness for the day, considering my newsletter used to be called INSIDE JOKE and we use that day to celebrate Amy's birthday (she'll be 18 years old this year, quite a feat for a kitty!), but I also completely agree with John Oliver (of course):

Apparently it's a good day to wake up to Eggs with Bacon:

Silly Site o' the Day

This morning I finally binge-watched the Mindy Project episodes I've been putting off since the onset of the "Mindy and her coworkers suddenly forget they're gynecologists and act really stupid about her pregnancy" plotline, and after the first couple cringe-inducing episodes the show seemed to find its way back from the precipice of asininity, particularly the episode featuring Stephen Colbert as a priest. Which reminded me of this Open Letter to Stephen Colbert (via Mark Evanier)...

Silly Site o' the Day

Spring is supposedly here, even though a few snow showers are forecast for tomorrow (naturally, we're driving to and from Mom's so that's four hours of potential fun), so it's well past time to start getting rid of some winter stuff, lie Mr. Incredibeard here:

It's the kind of day only dancing origami can make better:

Silly Site o' the Day

This evening I found myself without my cell phone. I left it at work, and I knew it was safe where I'd abandoned it, but it was just... weird being without it. It was like jumping back in time a couple of decades. I chatted with the bus driver, and packed a book to read on the bus tomorrow. If only I felt better, I might have enjoyed the quiet commute. And it's not like I can't go elsewhere once I'm home to try and figure out what Illustrated Typos is all about (via io9)...

Sillly Site o' the Day

It's my mommy's birthday! Happy birthday, Mom! This optimal US road trip map which hits landmarks in all of the Lower 48 (via Laughing Squid) reminds me of your tales of the cross-country drive you and Dad took when I was a baby, although of course I have little memory of the trip itself. I'm still jealous you traveled Route 66 in its heyday!

As it's still Women's History Month, I thought it appropriate to pass this along:
