Silly Site o' the Day

I'm really getting burnt out by this protracted presidential campaign. Can we please have reform, someday, that limits the campaign to a few months? Here, have some bad lip reading:



There, that's a little better. Via Susie.

Silly Site o' the Day

All Hail Eris; Hail Discordia! Today is the Goddess' holy day, as I recall from a few lifetimes ago, the numbers "5" and "23" being big deals and all that. It's in the book, somewhere. So am I, by the way (page 11, birth name). But that's neither here nor there. What's a good, Discordian silly site, then? How about Pangram Tweets (via Laughing Squid)? That's some nice symmetry there.

Silly Site o' the Day

Today is my office's annual Family Day, and this year it's at Shea Stadium Citi Field! Here's something to get me in the mood:



Can't wait!

Silly Site o' the Day

Must be graduation day around these parts. When we pulled out of the U-shaped driveway separating our row of flats from the actual street, there was nary a parking space to be found, and here on the Bronkers border there's almost always something available. Thank goodness nobody knows there are tons of spaces to park along our driveway! Hope some of those graduates were smart enough to use LOL My Thesis (via Laughing Squid)...

Silly Site o' the Day

Good day at work, but far busier than I expected. Nice dinner out with Robin, but an unnecessarily long bus commute home. Internet, please make me feel better with awkward pictures of men and cats!

Silly Site o' the Day

My workload has precluded me from catching up on blog reading in my downtime, as there hasn't really been any this week. But if there were, I'd be reading 50 Nerds of Grey.

Silly Site o' the Day

Photo day at work again today! In honor of which, I present some rudeness done to classical paintings:

Silly Site o' the Day

Back to my how-do-I-get-all-this-done-in-a-day routine, a sharp change from yesterday's leisurely lunch and relaxed jeans-clad meeting. I felt not unlike a classical painting inserted into a modern setting.

Silly Site o' the Day

Home from work early today, as I had attended a lunch then meeting in our NJ offices. A breezy 40-minute commute against rush-hour traffic mostly through Rockland and Westchester! I'd forgotten how relaxing a car commute can be, but I wouldn't trade it for my current 1-hour plus express bus ride, particularly in inclement weather. Anyhow, the meeting reminded me to post this meeting-speak cheat sheet (via BoingBoing), even though none of the expressions therein popped up at the meeting. Schlepping the laptop and my shoes back into Manhattan tomorrow!

Silly Site o' the Day

Ha I went up against the weekend and won for a change! Errands then lots of reading and napping yesterday, an actual social life today as I met up in NJ with former coworkers, then earrings sorted and finances all caught up! How am I still awake? And darn it, but I forgot to tell one of my gal-friends today about the yummy KFC nail polish:
