Web Time Wasters

Friends!  How was your week?  I ate lunch by the bay with an old friend, skyped with buddies from home, plotted world domination with Lady Smaggle and finally got around to watching Kenny.Also!  I helped my Wellington bestie buy her wedding dress.  For $35.  At a weekend thrift market.  Held in a bar. She tried it on in the bar bathroom, bought it and we skipped home with it in a used plastic grocery bag.  Awesome!

For the first time in nine years, I’m living somewhere with an actual television  and I find myself being pleasantly surprised and engaged by some of MTV’s shows.  Yes, you read that correctly.  Hired about new grads searching for jobs in different fields, The Buried Life about a group of friends doing heaps of fun/crazy/adventurous things and The World of Jenks – mini documentaries following interesting/amazing/unique people through their daily lives.  And yes, I’m still all over Jersey Shore.

Does social media ever make you feel like there are 8 million parties that you’re not invited to and everyone’s life is more exciting than yours?  Here’s what Maggie has to say about that:
I still love social media, despite the occasional sense that everyone is popping bottles of champagne on city rooftops while I watch The Office reruns in my yoga pants. Seeing what I’m “missing” has shaped how I decide to spend my time, reminded me to fill my life with stuff that makes me feel like there’s nowhere else I’d rather be.
How great are these Instant Comfort Pocket Boxes?  They’re only $10!  Wouldn’t they be great in an Easter or May Day basket?
