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!
