Silly Site o' the Day

Happy Thanksgiving to my fellow US citizens and residents. One of my favorite days of the year - it's still autumn, I get to eat lots of yummy things and see some of my favorite family members, I get four days off, and my birthday is less than a week away! Apparently kittens like to celebrate as well:

Silly Site o' the Day

A nice quite day at the office, with almost nobody in. I held down the fort and had meetings with myself, using the Office Meeting Quote Generator (via Brand Flakes for Breakfast).

Silly Site o' the Day

Another 10-hour day squeezed into 8 hours; boy can I use this break! I plan on spending an inordinate amount of it on the internet, or the web, or something. I'm so confused about all this, I think I need a TED explanation:

Silly Site o' the Day

I'm hoping this shortened week will allow me to catch up on blog reading, as it occurs to me I don't have any Thanksgiving-related silly sites. I hope the gods of the internet pantheon (via Laughing Squid) look kindly upon me as I undertake this venture.

Silly Site o' the Day

Didn't quite make my ironing goal today, as anxiety dreams and general malaise kept me in bed far more than I'd have chosen if my body hadn't somewhat broken down. Still, I've started to make a dent in my comics reading and the DVR is a lot emptier, so there's that. Among other shows I've cleared is the current one with Neil DeGrasse Tyson, which isn't as sharp as I'd hoped but, still, a little bit of Neil and Bill Nye is better than none at all:

Silly Site o' the Day

Spent a great day with Robin today; when you're in love even routine stuff like errands is fun. The eye is still bothering me, but at least I have the moistener now. Glad I can see well enough to prevent this from happening to me (via Cute Overload)...

Silly Site o' the Day

Well, that's a relief - turns out the problem I've had with my eye all week isn't a reappearance of my corneal ulcer, just a scratch. Hurts like a mofo but it should heal in short order, I just need to keep it lubricated with regular over the counter stuff. Whew! All else checks out okay. Can't be too careful with one's eyes, they might wind up all googly and covering books and stuff (via Laughing Squid)...

Silly Site o' the Day

It's been pouring for a few hours now. It really puts me in the mood for some tea - Earl Grey. Hot.

Silly Site o' the Day

Another photo shoot day in the bag! Not really complaining, I like watching my work colleagues get all gussied up for their head shots, it's just a really large chunk out of my day. And the photographer, although a really nice guy, doesn't really do things like superimposing stills over everyday backgrounds like this guy (via Laughing Squid)...
