Things that are Interesting: Wordtwist and Awesome Places

The boy woke up sick today and we don't know if it's swine flu (or regular flu) so I'm preparing for the worst and getting ready to hunker down in the apartment for the week, if necessary. I have, in addition to an array of bland, easily-digested foods and several sorts of medications, the following beverages: orange juice, two types of Naked juice, a 10-pack of Gatorade, a 2 liter of ginger ale, ginger tea bags, peppermint tea bags, Emergen-C (lemon lime!), Theraflu (apple cinnamon? ew), and some sort of weird Kombucha cranberry drink that I had to get to reach the $5 minimum at the vegetable place (Travis wanted chard. Well, kale, technically, but they were out of that. He subscribes to the vegetable route to recovery; I am a fan of the fruit.) Picked up some multivitamins and echinacea too. If this bug is going to take me down, it's going to have to fight for it. I hope my wrists stop aching so I can get some knitting done if I'm stuck here.

But anyway, some more fun things! We are currently in the "other" section of my bookmarks, so shit could get crazy.

First: Wordtwist! ie, online Boggle. I totally forgot about this game and am going to go play it the second I hit "publish" on this post.

And this place is pretty darn neat too, especially for photography and travel geeks: Awesome Places Livejournal Community. A rich mine of inspiring stuff, right there. I haven't looked at it in a while, probably since I bookmarked it, so I'll have to go back and poke around a bit more. It's just going to make me want to go fancy places, though.

And with that, I am out. Remember, kids, it's not enough to wash your hands on a borderline OCD basis and stay 5 meters away from other people at all times: you have to make sure your significant other does, too. Because the pigs will use them as a vehicle to attack you. They are wily like that, and they are mad about all that bacon you've eaten.


  1. so, dear, how's the weather in quarantine, and are you still well?

  2. Nah, I'm a sick little pup over here. Though Travis is feeling better, hopefully for real this time (he thought he was better a few days ago but it was a lie.) I went to the doc and they couldn't confirm it was the flu but gave me Tamiflu anyway. Sad times.

  3. Been silently "lurking" on your blog for awhile now. Love your work and wily sense of humor...

    Hope you two feel better...

  4. I just read this while procrastinating my physics homework and got so distracted by wordtwist
