Things I've stumbled on recently:
I love sites like Parent Hacks. Who could not find it lovable to stumble on a site that is excited about the variety of uses for denture tabs? Or, that shares this post heading: Fun toilet cleaning? Use baking soda and vinegar!
Yup. Any site that will will combine the words "fun" with "toilet cleaning" and make the whole thing exclamation-point-worthy is my kind of site. This is my realm.
The Word Detective
I get tingly just at the name of this one. (Don't mock me. After "fun with toilet cleaning" I would think that playing around with language could be considered an admirable hobby.)
We found this site when I was looking for the answer to my kids' question: "If what we call 'cookies' are 'biscuits' in England, then what do they call biscuits?"
We eventually went straight to our source on all-things-England, The Bookworm. She explained that biscuits are basically scones. Then we asked what they call scones, since when we think of scones, we imagine (and consume) something much sweeter than a biscuit. She replied that perhaps we're just eating "scones gone wrong" and that across the pond they have sweet or savory biscuits, but nothing exactly like this.
And now, unbelievably, I am out of blogging time for this morning. (That linkage always takes longer than you think it will.)
I will leave you with my favorite recent Google searches that somehow brought people to my blog:
"Existential Crisis Mother" (Yes. Sadly. That's me.)
"Objective of Chocolate" (Huh-what? You don't know that? Chocolate is proof that God loves us and wants us to be happy. I know that Ben Franklin actually said that about beer, but it applies to the objective of chocolate as well.)
