We have returned from visiting the boyfriend’s family, and already he’s disappeared again to help set up for a conference that’s taking place in Karlsruhe from tomorrow. Never mind… it gives me plenty of time to catch up with the blogging world.
1. First up is Morbid Holiday, a site which describes itself as being “updated daily with a new offbeat comic or cartoon”. Unfortunately, the artist only did the daily thing for one year, so updates are now sporadic at best (there was a post yesterday, but before that there hadn’t been any updates since October) but if, like me, you only found it now, you have a whole year’s worth of hilarious comics to go through. My favourite is the real Cookie Monster:
I know, I know… two posts in one day. How sad am I? 😉 But having no time at all to blog yesterday meant I completely missed the Stamp of Approval Saturday link up at Ifs, Ands & Butts. And I really, really need to share this with you.
What is an Alot, you ask? Well, in the words of the author, “The Alot is an imaginary creature that I made up to help me deal with my compulsive need to correct other people’s grammar. It kind of looks like a cross between a bear, a yak and a pug, and it has provided hours of entertainment for me in a situation where I’d normally be left feeling angry and disillusioned with the world. ”
If you have ever been annoyed at somebody’s inability to use an apostrophe or actually hit the space bar between words, you NEED to read this post. If you’re anything like me, the Alot will soon become your new favourite animal…
