Silly Site o' the Day

So much football (most Yanks call it "soccer") on my DVR to review, so little time... Getting to the end of the English Premier League season, when I kind of wish I were in London, taking in sights like this...

Silly Site o' the Day

Man, that wind is brutal outside! I think this may usher in a whole new round of illnesses, I've already heard of more wheezing and laryngitis and body aches than expected in the last few days. Better take out Mom's chicken soup just in case! Also, life hacks for cats, because we all need that.

Silly Site o' the Day

Just got back from the cardiologist, and the old ticker's doing just fine, but got off the bus to an icy blast. Spring has decided to hide for a couple of days, I guess. Speaking of winter coming (around again), did you know there's a Yo, Hodor app? Of course there is.

Silly Site o' the Day

Happy Earth Day, and happy Administrative Professionals Day (US)! Earth Day doesn't predate me but I was surprised to find Admin Pro (or Secretaries) Day does. And as an admin pro living on Earth, this stuff is all relevant to my interests. Perhaps not so for all these local people with their arms crossed (via Susie).

Silly Site o' the Day

So the ad I ran here yesterday for 4/20 was based on Apple's famous "1984" ad. This parody is based on more current Apple sensibilities:

Silly Site o' the Day

After yesterday's events, which included sitting in a very uncomfortable position in a theatre whose seat backs actually touched my knees when I tried to sit like a normal person, I found myself in considerable pain today and opted to stay inside on this lovely day. Shame too, I was all set to animate street art (via Laughing Squid). No, not really, I'm not the artist in the family, and Robin pleads the Fifth.

Silly Site o' the Day

Had a great time today with a couple gals I used to work with back when KPMG was Rothstein Kass. I don't do many Girls Days Out, so this was quite special to me. Next GDO will probably be Jill and Anna in Reading, I hope. Anyway, great to hang out with a couple high-powered exec secretarial types in the bloom of their careers, who I'm sure can offer more than their fare share of helpful beauty tips for male Lego execs (via BoingBoing)...

Sad and Useless would like to remind us that camouflaged kitties are camouflaged!
