Silly Site o' the Day

It's the kind of day only dancing origami can make better:

Silly Site o' the Day

This evening I found myself without my cell phone. I left it at work, and I knew it was safe where I'd abandoned it, but it was just... weird being without it. It was like jumping back in time a couple of decades. I chatted with the bus driver, and packed a book to read on the bus tomorrow. If only I felt better, I might have enjoyed the quiet commute. And it's not like I can't go elsewhere once I'm home to try and figure out what Illustrated Typos is all about (via io9)...

Sillly Site o' the Day

It's my mommy's birthday! Happy birthday, Mom! This optimal US road trip map which hits landmarks in all of the Lower 48 (via Laughing Squid) reminds me of your tales of the cross-country drive you and Dad took when I was a baby, although of course I have little memory of the trip itself. I'm still jealous you traveled Route 66 in its heyday!

Silly Site o' the Day

As it's still Women's History Month, I thought it appropriate to pass this along:

Silly Site o' the Day

Yep, I slept much of today as well. Not sure why. But the ironing is done, and I do feel somewhat relaxed (if still groggy). On with the work week! Can't wait to open me some doors:

Silly Site o' the Day

By the time we got back from today's errands, yesterday's snow was mostly melted. Alas, we couldn't enjoy the coming of actual spring as we slept through most of the day. Must have needed it! I fear more of the same tomorrow, but maybe I'll get some ironing and reading done somewhere in there. And I can go without a watch, which reminds me:

Silly Site o' the Day

Just went out to do some lunchtime errands and it's starting to flurry out there. Let's all think happy thoughts of beautiful sand sculptures. Via Laughing Squid.

Silly Site o' the Day

It's lunchtime, and I'm awaiting a colleague from out of town so we can take her out to eat. But first I need to consult my judgmental NYC subway map (via BoingBoing). You know, we're not all miserable office workers around here!

Silly Site o' the Day

We all know today was St. Patrick's Day, at least those of us in New York and Boston (I was very nearly able to circumvent the roving bands of young drunkards during lunch, as I now work a few more blocks away from the Fifth Avenue parade route), but did you know that this past Sunday was Mother's Day in the UK? They used to call it Mothering Sunday but that phrase appears to have gone by the wayside. Anyway, here's a cute reminder from the Body Shop:
