Good Stuff

Well, I've been planning for a little while to draw attention to some new bloggers and some fun sites and it works out well for today since a migraine laid me out flat yesterday evening. Migraines have a way of killing creativity. So without further ado.

Check out these new bloggers who I think have something interesting and worthwhile to share.

Luann Dunkinson has a whole website as well as a blog featuring her watercolors. A mutual friend showed me her site and I think her paintings are really very lovely.

Misticblu is another brand new blogger who has already shared some interesting observations from life and her job. She said I inspired her to start blogging. Whoda thunk it? I'm flattered, and glad to introduce her.

Lulda is our third new blogger and although I know she is making the rounds through institutions like Friday 55 I wanted to draw attention to her. She's written some marvelous 55s and shared some terrific insights.


If you need a chuckle these sites do it for me.

Totally Looks Like is a collection of side by side shots of celebrities who either look like each other or celebrities who look like strange objects. The Phil Spector entry cracked me up.

Lolcats is animal pictures, mostly cats, with ridiculous captions. Ok, like the previous entry it is for those who are easily amused but I like it.

Cakewrecks
is for those looking for baked horror. It's a fairly new site but has taken off like wildfire. Who knew there were so many professional cake decorators completely lacking in any ability?


Other regular haunts...

Here's a game I am compelled to play every day. I have a deck of Set cards at home but no one will play with me anymore because I'm too fast. In addition to Set, I play the Quiddler game on that site as well.

Postsecret is part of my Sunday morning ritual. It's a confessional in art. Some of the secrets shared are silly, some are sweet, some are heartbreakingly sad.

Finally, when I am really trying to avoid any kind of productivity I head over to Mental Floss. It's got trivia, quizzes (not of the "which underwear style is my soul" variety though those sorts at Blogthings can be fun to shred like I shred memes), snarky t-shirts, fun articles.

EDIT: Published it hours ago with the wrong date so it's been sitting several posts down the line...that's what a headache does for me...

I'm always intereted (although also excessively burdened) to get new blogger recomendations, so I'll check those out.

I feel for you. I used to get terrible headaches but I do not think they qualified as a migraine. I just wanted to lay down in the corner somewhere away from everything as any light or sound just made things worse. Where is a sensory deprevation tank when you need one. Feel better soon.

I will have to follow those links later on. Thank you so much.

I have a person ache today.
That means it ALL hurts!

For two days I have been sewing cashmere blankets. Two of them were king size duvets with button holes.
Now, I just do what I am told by Mrs P, but Im telling you, those duvets are so heavy that once the comforter is stuck inside, the owners will probably be crushed beneath it while they sleep!
So my neck hurts, and my shoulders, arms, back, legs, and I have a HEADACHE TOO! My sinuses are probably stuff with cashmere fuzz, and I need a massage.
The things people do for money....

:P
But the good news is, my shop is hopping. Talent, hard work, and good luck finally paying off!
Yay!

Hope you are feeling better soon.
:)

Bwahahaha...ok, I'ms till laughing about that album. I look at post secret. I'll check out the other funny stuff. The serious stuff...well...I'd just scare them.

Queenie said...

I knew about cake-wrecks, will pop around the others. Poor you having a migrane....

Cooper said...

Think about warm beaches, sun, tropical breezes and the ocean...

lecram said...

I found it interesting that CSI - NY recently did an episode featuring a post secret type site. Last season I caught an episode that featured "second life". What next... an episode about a blogger who leaves clues to murders the pictures of quilts? ;)

Suldog said...

Luann has done some very nice paintings. Lovely soft color blends; tranquil.

I've been a LOLcats lover for a long time. Always find something there to make me smile. Some folks seem to hate it, or not get it, but who cares about folks like that?

Thanks for the other time-wasters. I'm always open to goofing off.

LuAnn Dunkinson said...

Hey Lime! Thanks for the props!
Big love!

Lime
Oh goody! I was in danger of getting some sh*t done today, whew. Glad I stopped by. Hope your noggin' is better.

Mike said...

Thanks for the list to check out. Hope the migrane subsides quickly. My oldest gets them and it just knocks her out completely...

Ella said...

that cakewreck site is a HOOT. being a student of the cake arts myself, i'm often critical of some of the "creations" my local bakery comes up with. i've had more than one "wtf?" moment standing at the glass counter.

oh - and another thing - SLEEPOVER?!?!?! go take some medicine, please.

Breazy said...

Ouch, I hope your head feels better today.

I checked out all three of the new bloggers you linked. I was lol at the Phil Spector look alike. The lolcats I will have to remember because I am all the time looking for something funny with cats to send to my family members who are as crazy about cats as I am.

I am not much on games online but the mentalfloss looks fun.

Hope you have a good day!

Lulda Casadaga said...

Thanks Lime for the recognition!
I see I have had some new visitors check out my blog.

Funny thing today I was thinking about where can I visit next and here you have some suggestions.

Oh great minds think alike I must say! I hope your migraine subsides soon. :)

Mona said...

Wow! some new places to check on. I guess i need to broaden my horizons further!

Thanks!

G-Man said...

Maybe you can get a job being a Blog Director. You sure get around more than anyone that I know!!.:-)

misticblu said...

Thanks for the shout out!! Love making new friends :)
I do game time at acrobabble.com. I experienced acrophobia in the mid 90's and have been hooked ever since.

Dorky Dad said...

Every time I think of LOLCats I smack myself in the forehead. Why didn't I think of that?

Mona said...

Happy thanksgiving to Lime & Family!

Jocelyn said...

Great tips. I LOVE Quiddler and didn't know it was available online.

Gotta check out Furiousball's tip, too.

Ameratis said...

Lime you just need to come down here to 'bama because my friends and I play Quiddler and Five Crowns alot. My husband and I actually bought each other Quiddler last Christmas!
