// Speaking of comics, loved Nicky's post about Minutes to Midnight - Twelve Essays on Watchmen! Watchmen was my first real exposure to comics, and I have been meaning to re-read it... this makes a perfect addition to that reading!
// The always-lovely Gala Darling's list of 100 Things To Do Instead Of Procrastinating On The Internet. Some of these I'll never, ever do (#6, #27, #41 I don't even know what that is, #68...) but 99% of it is golden. Go do some of 'em!
// Malachite has to be the most badass mineral ever. Look! It doesn't look remotely eartly:
// You've heard me talk about Diablo 3, yes? There's a mode where, if you die, you're dead for good, start from level 1, done for, wiped out (a.k.a. perma-death). They call it Hardcore mode, because really, it is. Here's a fun collection of Harcore Mode Deaths with some pretty hilarious reactions from the players... and commentary from the Prince of Darkness himself.
// Remember last week when I mentioned free, online Coding classes? Well, Jordan shared with me Duolingo -- free, online language classes! With a social sharing aspect (badges, friendly and healthy competition to see who's getting through lessons and levelling up quicker), it's a blast. It only offers Spanish, German and a French beta right now, but that's more than enough! Get bilingual, y'all!
// I got 10 out of 12 right on the Lady Gaga or Jem? quiz at Mental Floss. It's truly, truly truly outrageous. How did you do?
// Love this DIY Rotating Goal List from Rachel!
// Lastly, and most excitedly...
It's mine it's mine it's miiiiine!
Samsung Galaxy S III (Pebble Blue, 16gb)
Did you know I'm a huge Android nerd? I go cuckoo over new, pretty tech -- especially those uber-customizable, shiny, fancypants Android devices. Like, beaming as it's unboxed, squealing as I leave the store, can't put it down all day, gonna rattle off specs and show you how rad it is it's got 16gb of on-board storage AND 50 free gigs for Dropbox isn't that AWESOME? kind of cuckoo.
(I never said I wasn't also a little weird...)
Anyway, bet your butts you'll be reading more about it once I've had it for a few days. :)
Today is a trip to IKEA with Jordan & Jimmy,
and lots of NYPD Blue. Life is awesome.
Have a great weekend!!
