Starred Saturdays: week of September 5


Saturday again?  Well, first I will apologize for not responding to comments and visiting blogs as much this week.  My laptop was already tethered to the wall due to a dead battery and then this week the monitor went black while I was using it!  So, I have it going through a monitor for a few weeks until I can afford a new one.  But, of course, it's in another room from where we usually hang out and so it's an effort to keep up with things.  I can read posts and email on my iPhone but it's tough to respond to everything I want to.  I hope I don't miss anything important!

A ship in a bottle?  So 1800s.  Nowadays it's silhouettes in toilet paper rolls. (via Flavorwire)

Google Scribe is apparently not the most reliable source for completing famous movie quotes.  It sure is funny though!

I think someone should start a challenge to read novels written by actors.  On second thought ...

I kind of go bananas over things like this post of food idiom origins. (via The Millions)

And, I'm finishing up a book on rogue waves and surfing and so you get a picture from Teahupo'o, Tahiti, home of some awesome (awesomely scary) waves.  Check out more here.  I can't even look at these waves without peeing my pants!


Sitting all by my lonesome,
K

  1. The silhouettes are adorable, but I'm not sure what one would do with them. Hang them in the bathroom?
