A lot of links, not a lot of commentary. Enjoy!
As my mother’s copy of “Women’s World,” that grocery-line rag informs me, wearing old keys around your neck is now fashionable. Steampunk aficionados have known this for quite awhile. For the intersection of steampunk and tech (my favorite!), check out what hardcore punkers are doing.
I’m experimenting with screenlets (desktop widgets, like on a Mac) right now, and am not sure how I feel about them. But if you just like to change up your background every once in awhile (twice a week), then check out Lifehacker’s list of places to score killer-wallpaper. I’m going to have to support the DeviantArt the best, due to my love of all things organically grown and sprawling. Like my garden.
I kill plants. This is both a tragedy and a running joke in my house. But if plants are your thing (or might be, tis the season for promises we don’t intend to keep), then check this out.
So as I plan on moving to a city all on my own next year, my mother and I are having a ball discussing furniture/decorating possibilities. I am a big cork person, for both its aesthetic appeal and sound-dampening qualities. Check some interesting ideas out here.
So I went to get a passport today. Ended up having forgotten some crucial documentation at college, so nothing really got accomplished. But then I think, you’d have to pay me to get on an airplane these days. Screw crotch-searches and not getting up for the last hour of flight and not being able to listen to music during take-off and and and and. Ugh. Let’s not forget about the security lines, either. If you, like me, are thoroughly sick of airplane/airport conditions, read this manifesto asking President Obama to fire the TSA.
