Tales from the Tabs

I tend to collect interesting bits of internetness in my browser tabs for later viewing. (You all do that too, right?)

Since I have to update and restart my computer soon, I thought that I’d share my current tabs with you lot.

Here we go:


Have I mentioned how much xkcd rules? It is a webcomic of extreme coolness. (As you can see…)

* I want to try this Coconut Curry Chicken Recipe. It sounds really good. And on the subject of food, I’m looking for some good casserole/hot dish recipes. If you have some good ones, please let me know.

* If you have an iphone or ipod Touch and are a Stargate fan, you might like to get this DHD app.

I still want this SurvivalStraps Survival bracelet from Think Geek. I wonder how many more times I’ll go look at it before I buy it.

Have I mentioned my obsession with learning Latin? Well, I’ve finally found a podcast that I want to try. Perhaps I’ll finally get into the swing of things. (And yes. I have taken Latin before.)

This gave me such a giggle – Top Shelf Announces ‘League of Extraordinary Gentlemen: 1988′. (Yes. This was an April Fool’s Joke. Too bad, though.)

Clever marketing ploy – A t-shirt that says “Health Reform is a BFD.”

And finally…

The reason I want an ipad (though I *am* waiting for the second generation) – The Star Trek ipadd

T-Shirt Tuesday: Edinburgh Castle


Hello all. For this second T-shirt Tuesday, I’m looking at my T-shirt from Edinburgh Castle. Yes, the one in Scotland. I was there back in May of 1999, but the t-shirt I bought while there illustrated the deaths of various Scottish monarchs. I’m not sure what happened to it. The shirt pictured above was given to me by my sister who was in Scotland that same month, after having traveled all over Europe and the UK (her Grand Tour, don’t you know) with her boyfriend (now husband). Does she know me?

Apparently, yes, as I still have it. Green is my favorite color, by the way. She knows this.

If you ever get the chance, visit Edinburgh. It’s wonderful. There were no festivals on while I was there, and the peace in the park not far from the castle of a Sunday morning…well…I miss it.
