This and that

I have about a million jokes, links, and pictures stored in my computer. About three dozen files are categorized, but they aren't quite full enough yet to pull up and publish. Lately, I've had a problem surfing, in that I look at all kinds of things and I think, yeah, that's cute, but it isn't funny ENOUGH for my dozen or so readers. And I have also been quite busy, trying to make myself clear this mess of a house up since I'm going to have company this weekend. I bought a turkey, but haven't done anything else to get ready for Thanksgiving (which I am cooking, DON'T LAUGH). So I am going to throw a few MissCellanious funny things at you today, see how you like it.

This music video is cute, funny, and sad all at once. Everyone Else Has Had More Sex Than Me.

The Good Earth: pictures of our world from outer space. Lovely!

You’re gonna waste your time tossing paper wads in the can across the room anyway. Do it online, so you don’t have to pick up the litter. (Thanks, Del!)

I found an awesome acheivement in editing, and the kids will like it, too. The gang from Peanuts does Hey Ya!

I Love Egg has a series of very strange flash animations starring eggs.

A game that might drive you crazy: Red Square. I had to pull myself away. About 12 seconds is my best attempt.


The Order of Brilliant Bloggers
was created to recognize those who put a real effort into their blogs, and to encourage wider blog readership. They are currently taking November nominations for best site and best entry in Political, Serious (non-political), Comedic, and Photo blogs, plus another award for Best Comment Trails. You can nominate a site by leaving a comment. There is also a category for Best Historic Post, for any that predate November. Go give a look at the sites that are already nominated, and suggest others if you like! You can vote for the November awards during the first week of December.

New tongue twister!

I prefer the term "overeducated hillbilly". ;-) There would be many more left-wing hillbillies if they thought more globally and less locally.
