Saturday Mornings, as we all know, are a time for ploughing recklessly through your to-do list — which may, if you are a farmer in a more temperate part of the world than Ohio, include ploughing recklessly. That has a pleasing symmetry.
As you may be able to tell, it’s a busy morning here on the river. Readers of Reinventing Fabulous will know that Krissie is coming to visit in a few days, and there are Chores To Be Done. Not to mention the fact that our adorable children, who have to be dragged physically out of bed during the week, have decided that 6.30AM is a perfectly reasonable time to start demanding pancakes.
All of which, dear Betties, is by way of an apology for a somewhat hurried Weekend Edition. If you’ve discovered something awesome on the internet in the last seven days, please share it in the comments, or via email to email@example.com, and I’ll include it in next week’s collection.
Let’s get started!
Via Boing Boing, a glimpse into the fascinating history of Cora Holben, a “Lady Detective” who began plying her trade in Chicago in 1902.
By the brilliantly-named Terry Fan, Victorian Star Wars.
From the wonderful Overthinking It, an interesting question: does Alec Baldwin exist within the universe of 30 Rock?
These outlet stickers are genius. After all, what better way of convincing the children in your house that electricity outlets are friendly and playful?
Lastly for today, TheTrollMasterFlex performed a back flip. Every day. For a year.
To win a $100 bet.
Of course, if I could backflip like that, I’d do it at every opportunity too.
That’s it for another Saturday, Betties! Enjoy your weekend, and FGBVs to all!
