Ok, so my cousin and BFF Kathy (hey Kathy!!) sent me a link to a program (service?) I saw several months ago and forgot about- http://www.stumbleupon.com/. Oh my gosh, I was up till 1am last night playing with it! Here's what you do- download their program (service?), register, click things you're interested on a list, then when you're all set up, you just click a little button at the top of your screen that says "Stumble". How cool- it gives you a different website every time and all related to whatever you said you're interested in! I clicked things like K-12 education, optical illusions (the boys love those), cooking, art, and it has given me some really cool sites! Here are some of the ones I've liked the most:
http://www.stellaceleste.com/htm/knots/tutorials.htm- this one teaches you all about how to make those really intricate Chinese knots, you never know when you'll use that kind of info!
http://www.cottonmonster.com/- I love these kinds of things, they're so cute and can't be that hard to make, right??
http://www.mysticalball.com/- The boys loved this one, they were amazed!
http://www.notmartha.org/tomake/marblemagnets- Hello- easy kid-made Mother's Day presents!
http://www.blingit.us/blog/2008/02/27/pictures-taken-just-at-the-right-time/- VERY funny, Kate and I had fun laughing at some of these!
http://catalogs.google.com/- because everyone that knows me knows I LOVE catalogs!
http://www.justaplant.com/story/index.html- Because, seriously?
So try it for yourself, see what kind of neat/odd/funny/gross/stupid things you can find!
