We made it!  Another week down!  Eleventy-billion to go!  (anyone else notice that’s my favorite fake number? k, just checking)

But really people – I know all of you are so excited about the subject of this post….the websites I visit most often.  No?  I bet you’d be surprised!  Keep reading if you care…and keep reading if you don’t! kthx

Before I get to that….today’s agenda is set for a light 4 mile run and then teach a kickbutt Spin class.  The rest of the day will be spent doing….things I will not tell you about but let’s just say it’ll be fun and something I’ve been looking forward to all week!  I also have a jam packed Saturday consisting of Swim lessons, some ventures out in the evening….and a long run with my friend Mindy on Sunday morning.  Woot!

Eh em…..(also this is all meant to be read with drips of sarcasm – sort of…..if you don’t read it that way, it’s not my problem)

1.  FACEBOOK – Like, duh.  I can not tell you how many times I check my facebook on a daily basis because, well, let’s be real – 1.  How many people ACTUALLY count the times they go on facebook in a day? (don’t answer that – ESPECIALLY if it’s less than 2 – go away – stop judging me)  2.  It’s the greatest way to stalk someone without it being creepy (don’t act like you don’t do it too!)  and 3.  How else will I be able to check and see if 720 of my 725 friends that I don’t talk to are still living?  EXACTLY. I knew you’d get it.

Facebook is – well – an addiction.  Don’t even act like Myspace was better.  The only thing myspace had over facebook is the ability to post music to your page and lesbihonest (pitch perfect, anyone?)…you turned that ish down as soon as you went on to someone’s page because you were all like, “EWWWW, what is this SONG?!  The truth hurts sometimes.

I’ve had friends give facebook up for Lent and/or an undisclosed amount of time…..why?  WHY?  Isn’t the reason for giving something up, TO GIVE SOMETHING UP?!  DELETE IT – don’t just go away for a little – that’s kind of not the point.  And besides, then you have to spend twice as long trying to catch up on what happened when you were “away”.  Trust me.  Save yourself some time.

I do have a few friends that don’t have a facebook.  It’s true.  I know, I can’t believe it either.  Why am I still friends with these people?  Truth is, they need ME….I’m their ‘dealer’.  I get them the info they need when they can’t get it themselves….you know what I mean, jellybean??

2.  Weather Channel Dot Com – is the bomb…..aaaaaand I’m done rhyming.  For many reasons – mostly because I want to know whether it’s an outside running day but also because….think about this for a second…..when you have a conversation with someone – doesn’t it ALMOST ALWAYS go back to the weather at some point?

People eat that ish up!  People LOVE to talk about the weather.  Don’t believe me?  Think about it….

When a conversation is going south…..”did you see the weather for tomorrow?”

When you don’t know what to say on a date…..”hey I heard it’s supposed to be nice tomorrow”

When you don’t know HOW to start a conversation….”doesn’t this rain suck?  Do you know when it’s supposed to clear up?”

When you’re saying goodbye to someone and don’t know how else to say goodbye…”I hope this heat wave ends….stay cool!”

(so take a minute….think about it….YOU KNOW YOU DO THIS!!!!)

3.  Slashdot.org – because, as I’ve proclaimed before – I am a nerd.  I am proud of it…and I like to be smart and know random stuff when I am entertaining at parties.  HA!

Ironically, this was slashdot’s poll of the day yesterday:

Screen shot 2013-08-01 at 6.13.59 PMDon’t want to click on it?  It asked how long do you think facebook will be around for???  Yeah.  OKAY PEOPLE WHO SAID: “Who uses facebook?”  YOU’RE ALL LIARS.  There, I said it.  You are!

I owe the finding of slashdot to my friend Joey – you can visit his wedding website and wish him and his fiance Jen a very happy future!  They get married in November!  Can’t wait for that!!!

Back from my tangent….anyway, Joey told me about slashdot nearly 6 years ago…and I’ve been keeping tabs on it ever since.  It’s not flashy.  It’s not spectacular..but it’s informative and good to read.  It’s news for nerds.  Stuff that matters.  Boom.

Screen shot 2013-08-01 at 6.19.38 PM4.  How do I put this gently? – howdoiputthisgently.tumblr.com:  Just a semi-functioning individual navigating higher education with a cocktail in her hand and a tendency to embarrass herself.  Basically, I’m in Graduate School and (still) slowly losing my mind.    It speaks for itself, people.  Check it out.

This site is freakin’ hilarious.  Yes.  It’s a tumblr site.  It’s typically updated every day.  The girl who runs this has some pretty funny ideas.  If you need a good laugh…..go there.  Now.  Do not pass go.  Do not collect $200.  GO.  NOW.

It’s pretty self explanatory but basically I can not read this site while drinking any kind of liquid else it will end up all over my computer….

5.  Astrology Zone – http://www.astrologyzone.com

I KNOW, I KNOW.  Judge me.  Go ahead.  I don’t care.  I read my horoscope every day and every month.  Is it always right?  NO.  Do I like it?  Yes.

What I think I like this most is the “idea” that there is SOME kind of control over the days to come – even though in reality we all know there is no real control over anything.  It’s relaxing for me.  I think what I really like to do the most is read it and then as the month nears it’s end, read it again to see if any of it was true.

What’s that you say?  I’m crazy?

Listen, honey – I’ve been called worse.

I just like it – and it’s okay if you don’t but I’m being truthful here – so, there’s that 🙂

What sign am I?  Cancer.

What sign are you? :-p

And so there you have it – the five websites I look at the most.  Good, bad and embarrassing.  Take it or leave it!

What websites you do you read daily? 

What sites are you embarrassed to tell people you read? 

Don’t act like you don’t have any……

Have a great weekend!
