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.

Have you ever tried to figure out what a book was about from its title? Have you ever read a book based on its title only to find out you were sorely misled? Well, this site: Better Book Titles, tries to remedy such situations by renaming books with literal (pun intended) titles. Check it out for a good laugh!

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!

If you haven’t run into McSweeney’s Internet Tendency or are unaware of the print journal McSweeney’s Quarterly Concern (the offshoots of McSweeney’s Publishing House started by author and all-around awesome guy David Eggers), then you are missing out on an important development in the literary world. But that is neither here nor there. What I am here to post about is an awesome time-waster presented courtesy of McSweeney’s Internet Tendency – Lists! Some are good, some are not so good…so I have weeded out a number of my favorites that you might want to check out:

1. STD Medication or Character from The Neverending Story?

2. My Personal Netflix Recommendation Categories

3. Reasons You Might Die of Consumption in a 19th-Century Novel, in Order From Least Likely to Most Likely

4. Roman Bumper Stickers

5. Thoughts I’ve Had While Watching Intervention That Could Possibly be Red Flags

6. All I Really Need to Know I Learned From My Spam Box

7. Phrases I’d Rather Not Be Used at My Funeral

8. Titles of Songs I Could Credibly Write If I Became a Rap Star

9. Less-Threatening Islamist Groups

10. Things That Are Just Barely Thicker Than Peter Gallagher’s Eyebrows

And many many many many more!
