My new favorite thing

If Oprah can tell you all about her favorite things and people care all about it, I can too, right? :)

This is mine…it is and it’s a programmable radio station (or stations) that you can listen to stuff you like and nothing else — or as close to that as you can come for free.  Anyway, if you listen to radio all day long at work or whatever, you’ll really like this.  Just sign up for free, put in your favorite artist or song and away you go.  If finds other artists or songs that are similar to that and plays those too.      The more you put in the more music it’ll play that match those.  Don’t put in too many different kinds though, make different radio stations for what you want, it seems that after a few too many genres it starts to play really random stuff.

Have fun with it and tell me what you think, I’m loving it so far.

Speaking of music, have you heard Alicia Keys’ new song? It’s awesome.


My homage to my new favorite site

I have found my new favorite blog….The Drive-by Blogger

And, in tribute to my new favorite blog, I’m going to steal one of his ideas. It seems that on a semi-regular basis he looks through his referrer log and finds out what people search for to send them to his site. I’d never thought to look before, but hey it was funny when he did it.

So, first search term:

Pre-teen blog

Okay, I’m just not sure if I should be offended that someone thinks I’m a pre-teen. Yep, I’m offended.

Julia Childs’ Potato Salad:

How the hell?? I understand that search terms are weird, that they’ll pick up anything you write and garble them up and say they match someone’s search terms – but Julia Childs’ potato salad. Who knew that lush even MADE potato salad and why the hell are they searching for it. Not only is this a search term – its more than one!

How did April get its name?

Well, my parents were watching a movie while preggers and started asking themselves what girls’ names worked with my middle and last name and went through every girls’ name until they found one they liked. And that’s how I got my name. Aren’t you excited to know that?

Piles of dead ants

What weirdo is searching for “piles of dead ants??” I can understand writing about it, I mean I lived it, see here for the beginning of that story, but why would you search for that??

and my personal favorite:

The Cellulite machine:

Ok, I was kind of offended by the pre-teen thing, but what the…? A cellulite machine?? What the &*^#$ is a cellulite machine anyway?? Does it make cellulite? Is that where cellulite comes from?

That’s just wrong in so many ways.

Internet…the sequel


Yes, it’s true, after two weeks of wrangling with Charter about what customer service actually means and a $100.00 credit on my account (you know it’s been a tough week with the isp when they give you a 4 months free) I finally have internet at home. I won’t go into details because, at this point, who cares but the fact that I have internet should be as thrilling for you as it is for me.

I have recently found a few websites I have to share. Please don’t even try to figure out how I found fun websites while being without internet – let’s just say I should probably be fired at this point.

First of all, my all-time new favorite website – Passive Aggressive Notes

Just another reason why I never want a roommate and thank God I don’t work in a big office.

Some others you’ll get a kick out of:

My Crazy Roommate If nothing else, you have to read the Tron stories – just go on the right to the “tron” link, scroll to the bottom and commence laughter

Literally, a weblog This drives me crazy, literally – although I do pronounce literally as litch-ra-lee, so maybe that’s even worse. hmm

Apostrophe Abuse (now I see this stuff EVERYWHERE – it’s all this website’s fault, I never really saw them before. I mean of course I noticed the abuse, but I turned a blind eye for the most part, grr)

and last but not least: Wrong K. Miller I have a pretty boring/common name too – I should totally get a gmail account with it and see what happens! :)

Not much else I have the brain power to write down – more later, as always
