Silly Site o' the Day

Nothing new to report, except more art history memes. Carry on.

Silly Site o' the Day

Back to work and well on the road to being 100% healthy again. Trying to keep things low-key in the meantime, although certainly not enough to blend into the background...

Silly Site o' the Day

Just finished watching the SAG Awards, always a good excuse to plug Rotten Apples (via The Mary Sue), of which there were definitely a few in the bunch of actors tomight...

Silly Site o' the Day

Still under the weather, but the weather's getting better outside, at least. No more cleats needed, our driveway is ice-free! Made driving around a lot easier; the weird high-pitched squeaks even stopped when I started 'er up at the supermarket for the drive home. So maybe things are starting to look up. Meanwhile, people who don't know how to and have no desire to govern have of course broken the government (temporarily, one hopes), so I'm hoping the sorting hat (via BoingBoing) will put me in a saner place.

Sily Site o' the Day

I don't know how I got through today. When I wasn't running to and from the bathroom I felt like my head was in a fog. But I got everything done that I needed to, and now I've collapsed for the weekend. I really need to see kittens eating a strawberry, don't you?

Silly Site o' the Day

Going downhill fast, but at least I have cleats for all that inclined ice outside by us. That's part of what's making me so exhausted in the evenings (well, that and my suddenly-increased workload as the admin whom I back up was out sick today). I've had half of Mom's chicken soup, and I'm now going to crawl into bed with more Sir David. Speaking of which, he did NOT do this one:

Silly Site o' the Day

I may be starting to come down with something. This morning around 9 I had the worst dizzy spell at work that I've ever had. I came close to fainting. So I'm glad I've been taking it easy at home, letting our DVR fill up whilst watching lots of David Attenborough on the Beeb. Much better than going anywhere and being afraid of tourist scams (via BoingBoing).

Silly Site o' the Day

Woo-hoo, a clean bill of health from my endocrinologist! Have to stick to the plan, particularly the stationary bike, so my blood glucose numbers stay where they are and I'm not subject to related health issues. Easier said than done but hey, let's just say this is my New Year's resolution and leave it at that. Right now I'm more concerned with whether I have enough cheat sheets (via Wil Wheaton) to cover my new responsibilities at the office...

Silly Site o' the Day

Back to work on a quiet day with lots of folks out, but I have several new short-term assignments backing up an admin who has yet to be hired so it was a day of introducing myself to "new" partners and finding out their needs. Far easier than figuring out what these companies do (via BoingBoing).

Silly Site o' the Day

Well, at last the mane is trimmed. No book-shopping at the mall though, that's why we have websites that can compile all the worst book covers for you!
