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,


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

  2. I love the google thing. Funny!
