Help! Also, a landwang.

Hello everyone! Very quickly, I need your assistance. No no no don't click away!

At the bottom of the post there is a picture of me and a horse. I know. WHAT an incentive.

Anyway, as you may know New Zealand has a total boner for rugby and is currently hosting the Rugby World Cup.

Is that a peninsula on your coastline, or are you just pleased to see me?

During the World Cup I'm doing a daily "Not Rugby" article about a variety of things, none of which are the You-Know-What (I'll link to this when there's a feed set up) in addition to regular work.

Mondays are 'link to a whole bunch of interesting sites on the Internet' days, and that is where I need your help - the World Cup goes for six weeks (when I had this bright 'daily content' idea I thought it went for about three) and I don't want to link to the same sort of sites (i.e. my favourite sites) constantly for the next six weeks.

Please, if you ever loved me at all, leave a couple of links to your favourite sites in the comments - can be absolutely anything at all as long as it's something you think is good.

*Not porn.

One request: no content aggregation sites please, would prefer something with a subject. Apart from that anything goes: webcomics, photo blogs, word blogs, humour, political analysis, sport of the non-rugby variety, motoring, celebrities, dating advice... anything.

Thank you very much! I know it takes time to go into the comments box and it is honestly greatly appreciated.

Also, on second thought it can totally be porn. I could use some new porn.


And now you can look at the picture of me with a horse.

Unless you didn't leave any sites in the comments, in which case close your eyes and hit the Back button because you do not deserve this treat.

The horse is bigger than me, but I have better hair than the horse.

I thought that NZ was being invaded by a legless, headless sheep with a weird wang.

Then I looked closer.

That horse has pretty cool hair.

Do they have to be funny sites? I love www.thedesignfiles.net, woods.jezburrows.com, marcjohns.com (best illustrations ever), www.eastsidebride.com

That's all I can think of off the top of my head. Just got back from tedious debate about euthanasia (compulsory for work - attending the debate, not euthanasia)

I am taking as my theme "educational for grownups". Because memes, yuks and reblogging seem to be taken. And as I am a sad OCD case I am using html tags.

The Periodic Table Table - one incredible collection of elements
The Futility Closet - covers the five brain-food groups
Letters of Note - gems from the history of actual physical correspondence
Strange Maps - self explanatory I think
Best of Wikipedia - tumblr where folks nominate fave articles

questionalblecontent.net a good webcomic

also, in relation to an earlier post, when I went home to visit my parents, my cat gave me fleas. Not fun. Everyone thought I was crazy. "People don't get fleas," they said as I ate a ton of raw garlic and doused myself in lemon juice. They were wrong.

flip-flop said...

oops, spelled questionable incorrectly.

flip-flop: Questionable spelling. Very meta.
