I Can Get Over The Icky Fingers

Dear O.B. Tampons,

After this, all is forgiven. Even how icky you make me feel.

Lovely Links – Oct. 5, 2010

by Venomous Kate

Kristen Stewart of Twilight fame (because we’d all prefer to forget The Runaways) can smile. Who knew?

Speaking of Twilight, the woman whose hands cup the apple on the cover is pissed that you don’t recognize her.

Jennifer Aniston (whose chin still freaks me out) has been proclaimed the most eligible single woman in the world. See what being called a sport fuck gets ya?

And speaking of sport fucks: Amy Fisher (remember her?) is starring in an adult video being released today, which she claims “has nothing to do with sex” and insists “this is about acting”. The title: Deep Inside Amy Fisher. Rejected subtitles include: “Amy’s Big Bang”, “Who’s afraid of a little Buttafuokin’?” and “No one would pay to see this woman naked if it weren’t for who she is.”

Happy Tuesday, folks!

Lovely Links – Sept. 16

by Venomous Kate

Stuck reliving your glory days? Turns out, that might be good for you!

“No, you are not ‘running late’. You are rude and selfish.” (As someone who used to be a procrastinator, and is now known for being both prompt and intolerant of others’ tardiness, all I can says is: damn right!)

According to Lifehacker, leaving your luggage in a hot car kills bed bugs. So much for that excuse to avoid visiting relatives, at least in the summer.

And speaking of life… and hacks… here’s what to do when parts of your body fall off.

See, this is why I don’t look for my biological parents.

Wise Words To Live By

by Venomous Kate

I first saw this graphic a week or so ago and thought it very nicely done. Within days, I’d seen it on at least a dozen different blogs, though no one seemed to know where it originally came from.

Turns out, it’s from Holstee, a design company doing some pretty neat stuff with recycled or reused materials. I imagine they’re probably thrilled to find their graphic is being treated similarly.

Most of all, its sentiments are great words to live by.

Inspiration from Holstee

Lovely Links – Sept. 13, 2010

by Venomous Kate

Once upon a time, in a blog not so far away (okay, this blog, but that doesn’t sound nearly as literary, does it?) I ran a daily linkfest entitled ‘Letter of the Day’, or something like that. It was the best of memes, it was the worst of memes. (See, I’m doing that literary thing again. That there is known as “circularity” and is considered the sign of a talented writer or, in my case, someone whose brain is already too exhausted to think up original stuff.)

The good part: it led me to discover new blogs and gave me an incentive to share with you some of the strange stuff I encountered on the internet. The bad part: that ‘daily’ bit pissed off my inner procrastinator and, well, I found myself begging my dentist to find a reason to give me a root canal just so I didn’t have to sit down and blog.

Meanwhile, Facebook started getting all of my good stuff because at least there I don’t feel bad about posting short links with little additional commentary. That, after all, is what constitutes being social these days, right? Then Facebook introduced that whole “Places” thing that lets you check in from your current location and, even though I’ve opted out, I still can’t help recalling how many times Facebook’s changes to privacy settings have totally screwed up the things I thought I’d opted out of.

But what happens if, on the day I tell one friend (not you) that I can’t come watch Little Johnny’s tap dance recital because I’m home with a cold when, in fact, I’m out drinking with another friend (maybe you) and drunkenly update my Facebook status with a crack about that day’s top news story only to find out that Facebook’s changes mean that my first friend now knows I’m lying?

Oh, sure, I could try that whole “honesty is the best policy” thing but anyone who has female best friends knows that’s a bunch of bullshit. Besides, if I were to take that honesty route I’d have to tell my friend that Little Johnny is a talentless dancer whose tapping is more reminiscent of someone walking barefoot in a roomful of cockroaches but that, hey, at least he came by that lack of rhythm honestly, having inherited from his mother. See? Honesty is not always the best approach.

But where was I?

Oh, yes. Lovely links. I gots ’em, and now I’m giving ’em to you:

  • 35 Life Hacks You Should Know – Infographic
  • Everyone’s got a Bucket List. The cool kids know it’s important to have a F*ck It List, too. What’s on yours?

What’s that you’re saying — all that reading and I’m only giving you two measly links??? As if you’ve even read this far already. But, for my lonely stalker who is probably the only person to make it this far in the damn entry, let me point out the title just said “Lovely Links“, which implies more than one. See, I’m doing that honesty thing after all.
