Highlighting Niche Blogs was always one of the most fun and interesting parts of maintaining Infomavens Desktop. Sometimes, we found blogs that were highly specific or outrageous or hilarious. This time, I thought maybe we’d ease back into it with a site that is a little more standard. The OfficeSupplyGeek blog has actually expanded since I first saw it to a full site focused on various office supply products. Like any other site that collects information about cool tools, they examine, review and discuss supplies that make office work easier, more efficient or innovative. I know, this isn’t exactly an “OMG that’s awesome, I’m going to share this link with all my friends” type niche blog. But well, I too have an obsession with office supplies, particularly writing implements, so I am personally fascinated by this site. And btw, my birthday is coming.

Ever get a text from your mom or dad, and think WTF? Maybe they said something ridiculous? Maybe it was something really mom-like and she shouldn’t have that kind of reach when you’re not home?

I read about today’s niche blog this morning in Entertainment Weekly Magazine, and decided to check it out.  Some of these posts had me laughing out loud – at work!  I’m going to get caught blogging if I keep checking this site – but don’t let that stop you. Tons more at When Parents Text.

Sold

Mom: are you coming home this weekend?
Me: I haven’t decided yet..
Mom: I am making your bed up and making cookies and all of your favorite foods and lining your pillows with ten dollar bills

 

TP

mom: just an fyi i had to buy more toilet paper today we have some serious butt wipers in this house

 

Thinking of You

Mom: The deli next door is cooking bacon and I thought of you. Miss you.

Garbanzo

Mom: Have you ever noticed how much garbanzo beans look like little butts? Like being mooned by soup

 

 

There’s sooo many more, I had a hard time deciding when to stop sharing them… Do yourself some good, and check these out.

Pretty cute!

Too fun not to share: My Jello Americans.
These women are artists who make lots of scrumptious-looking Jello treats… and lots of somewhat repulsive ones too. But whether you think they look delicious or disgusting, there’s no denying this: they are amazing!

Niche Blog Friday: Turtles Eating Things September 10, 2010

Have you ever noticed how the mouth of a turtle uncannily resembles a geriatric gumming his food sans-dentures? Neither had I until I saw this surprisingly cute blog – Turtles Eating Things. And if your Friday is as hectic as mine, then you’ll definitely need the smile pictures like these put on your face.

Niche Blog Friday: Paleo-Future September 3, 2010

In times like these (whatever times these may be), it’s comforting to find out that most predictions about the future (eh hem…December 21, 2012) are DEAD WRONG. How do I know most predictions are wrong? Because this wonderful blog – Paleo-Future – has documented predictions dating from as far back as the 1870s and most of them are wrong. Some make astoundingly astute predictions about the way transportation, communication, and entertainment would evolve (although no one could predict the onslaught of reality TV programming that we’ve had to suffer). But when it comes to the larger issues – population growth, global food supply, disease, war, and even natural resources…we have no clue! So enjoy the often entertaining predictions of our predecessors especially if Hurricane Earl is making your day rather dreary!

Niche blog: Unitard Universe August 6, 2010

This week’s niche blog, Unitard Universe, is an impressive collection of over 150 pages of photos of Celebrities, Musicians, Superheros, Fashion Models, and Pop Culture Icons all wearing the rarely flattering, usually disturbing, sometimes nightmarish, Unitard. This is where I’d typically say, “Enjoy!” however, perhaps today it is better to say, “Good Luck!”

Some are old photos... but were unitards ever really acceptable style?


Alicia Keys - not the worst of the bunch...


Oh, but then there's Antonio Sabato Jr. Yikes!


Sometimes, the unitard is a fashion statement... (this one is Dolce & Gabbana)


And of course, the always classic, Charo!

Niche Blog Friday: Mila’s Daydreams July 30, 2010

This blog has been making the rounds on the net this week, and it is just absolutely precious! A mom sets up the scenes she imagines her baby is dreaming about while she naps. Please go visit her blog to see many more! Enjoy!

November 2, 2010 UPDATE: Unfortunately, advertisers and others have be using unauthorized copies of these pictures and the photographer/mother has removed all but one from her own site. What was an absolutely gorgeous display of creativity and preciousness has been spoiled by disrespectful, greedy and malicious people. Although the mother has graciously permitted individuals to leave a few pictures on our sites, out of respect for her, her work, and especially the adorable Mila, we have chosen to take ours down. We wish them both the best of luck in all their pursuits, artistic and otherwise.
