Silly Site o' the Day

More knocked out from yesterday than I'd anticipated. Paid for my driver safety course since the discount expired today but I'm not taking it until my next vacation day since it's like 6 hours long. In the meantime, I wish I could still eat Pop-Tarts, because this Jeff Goldblum's Wardrobe as Pop-Tarts Twitter thread (via Laughing Squid) made me very hungry. For what, I'm not sure.

Silly Site o' the Day

Wonderful visit with Mom today, despite this morning's rain. The drive down was much better than I'd anticipated, and the trees are all budding so nicely that the Garden State was a pleasure. Speaking of pleasures, let's have a tribute to 4:20 featuring Jimmy Page:

Because there's still a Game of Throne fan in the house:

Silly Site o' the Day

Very slowly I'm starting to get back into the mood to tackle fiction writing. I'm hoping this science fiction plot generator (via BoingBoing) sparks some ideas.

Silly Site o' the Day

Okay so, like I say below, I'm not really into Game of Thrones any more. But after hearing this song I feel like I could be Team White Walker:

Silly Site o' the Day

Okay, Robin will get these, but I haven't watched Game of Thrones since they decided to emphasize gore and very uneven nudity (lots of bare female bods, not so much with the guys), neither of which seemed to have artistic merit. But apparently it's back and people are meme'ing it here and here. So, um, enjoy? I know nothing, Jon Snow.

Sily Site o' the Day

Look what the not-inconsiderable wind blew in: celebrity face mash-ups. Now if I only knew who the mashed-up celebrities are in the first place...

Silly Site o' the Day

I did about as much ironing as my arm could handle, then we went for a walk so I could snap photos of spring blossoms. It was a good deal more humid than we'd expected so today's walk wasn't nearly as pleasant as yesterday's stroll through a local outdoor mall, but it was needed exercise anyway. Didn't spot any of these way cool license plates, though.

Silly Site o' the Day

We were both home most of the day (I mean, we had to get out and about during the afternoon what with the 70-plus-degree weather) but man, Zed was a needy boy. A good boy, but needy nonetheless. At least he's not a thief... today...

Silly Site o' the Day

Wow, it's not even May the Fourth yet and Star Wars fever reigns again. So let's take a look at the size of Star Wars planets and spaceships against Earth backdrops. And yes, I teared up when I saw those few seconds of Carrie Fisher in the trailer for episode IX...
