Cake Wrecks

Sun Times Often good for unintentional laughs.

Midwest Lab Rescue Cute pictures, occasional shameless anthropomorphizing, funny stories, gratitude.

I am at Cake Farts and at Pudding Farts.

I apologize in advance if I get any of you fired for going to those links.

Don't click on them.

No, seriously.

Don't say I didn't warn you.

Cake Wrecks is frickin' awesome!

I've been spending way too much time looking at African cichlid sites, trying to figure out what species one of my fish is.

Twitter mostly. Just a-crafting the jokes for Twitter to pass the time. Not to actually TELL anyone what I am doing.

Isn't helping, it's where the funniest Twitter posts can be found.

A portfolio of the most attractive workplace interiors (advertising agencies plus) worldwide. Easily my favorite site to waste time. Features voting, and a Chicago agency in the top five most attractive!

The Weekly Teinou Bee Woman
This became my favorite aggregative site of odd things on the net back when the owner maintained a similar site in English. Now there is an English language button. The site is mostly, but not always, work safe and never time safe.

Twitter and Favrd.

Cake Wrecks...had to stop reading I was laughing too hard!

I am a Yelper. It's a big time waster.

Sheila / July 25, 2008 4:45 PM

None until you put up that Gigglesnort Hotel link...jesus christ I had completely forgotten about that.

Just seeing the pictures of the characters triggers all these feelings of discomfort.

The guy has a writing style that makes my sides hurt from laughing.
