Web Surfing

I had this wallpaper of Twilight on my computer for months. Then, one day, I walked by my desk and in place of Edward's smooth skin and piercing eyes was a picture of a squirrel holding a machine gun. It seems that my husband doesn't appreciate vampires like I do. We finally compromised and now have a picture of the Earth as our wallpaper.

I can't stop playing typeracer. It's free and fun and there's no setting up an account AND it's highly addictive.

This site is a must if you design your own website. Even I could understand it and that says a lot. And I love this list of html color codes. It comes in very handy.

If you don't know about Tastespotting or Foodgawker yet, you're missing out. Yum, yum, yum. Gorgeous pictures of food--with links to the recipes. I've been lucky enough to have some of my photos accepted by both sites. I've also been rejected by both sites too. (Note to Foodgawker: my chicken tacos were NOT dull OR unsharp! So there!)

I could not clean my house without listening to a few of my favorite podcasts on my iPod. Keith and the Girl is hilarious but not for kids. At all. And not for some adults either. It's profane, vulgar and offensive. But I love it. The Lost Podcast with Jay and Jack recaps episodes of Lost. And I would be lost without it. Get it? Heh. And finally, there's Public Radio International's ShortStories. Every Monday there's a new collection of short stories read by celebrities. Last week's "Indian Country" read by John Lithgow was awesomely funny and moving. Check it out if you have time.

  13. I never really know what foodgawker is going to accept or reject. I think it just depends on their mood. I got a couple of things on there and since then it's been total rejection. It makes me sort of sad :P
