I'm posting mostly over at Quirky Cookery right now, where I play with my food and teach you to have fun with it, too. Come check me out?

Ah, More Wonders of Firefox

I went home for 3 weeks over the Christmas/New Year holiday.....and by the way, I hope Santa brought you everything you wanted, and that you'll accomplish the rest during the next year on your own. While I was away, I used my mom's computer instead of my laptop because of the hassle of switching internet connections (not as simple as removing the cord and placing it here). When I got home last night, I opened up firefox, restored my last session, and had a lovely 15-20 tabs open (I closed some of them because when my school's connection asked for its password, it wouldn't take me back to the site I had been on, and I obviously didn't remember myself)....and not my regular set of tabs that I glance through several times a day, but rather, tabs that I still needed to decide what to do with, including several to blog. Many of them, I had long forgotten about, but I'm going to give a quick run-down and then I'll be back to actually post about the ones I'm still interested in:



A song that a friend on a forum introduced me to. I couldn't stop listening to it every so often, and I'm still not sure what I want to do with it. It's 8 minutes long, and I may have mentioned it here before, but if you've got the time, go ahead and watch it. (And it doesn't matter that it's in a language you likely can't understand.)

2. Google search for Dr. Seuss' Mulberry Street.

3. My blog.

4. YouTube's video of Papa Don't Preach.....Madonna's, not any remake.

5. Emetophobia Forums. A friend had asked me to check them out and possibly join because she suffers from emetophobia (the fear of vomiting). I, on the other hand, got used to vomiting on a fairly regular basis when I was younger because of various reasons, and it doesn't really bother me. I didn't like it, but there was nothing I could do about it, so I adjusted and then didn't think about it until the problems were fixed. Since it doesn't phase me any, she wanted me to check out the opposite extreme. Again, I'm still not sure what to do with this because there's really no purpose for me joining, but she suggested it, so maybe I should....

6. YouTube's Dear Jessie. This one I'll be back to explain in the next post probably.

8. The link I got ^ that from. http://www.jennifermaestre.com/pencil_show.html She's absolutely amazing.....they're all sculptures made out of just colored pencils. View them up close.

9. http://www.jennifermaestre.com And then I discovered that she had an entire collection using other things like nails and beads in similar type sculptures, so I left that open to post here, too. I was going to do an entire review on her, but I think this is sufficient enough. I just can't imagine how many tips she broke and had to either resharpen or toss out. That's *a lot* or color pencil tips! (And how many tips could she sharpen out of a single pencil? Hmmmm.)

10. http://eagereyes.org/Applications/ZIPScribbleMap.html We'll come back to this one.

11. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gothic_Lolita I think I had this one open to discuss on a set of forums, but meh, I don't know now, lol.

12. http://www.sellyourcell.com/default.php Sell your Cell. For those old phones you don't know what to do with, they'll give you a few bucks (more, depending on just 'how old' they are....the newer, the better). Seemed neat, but again, it was sorta just sitting there, waiting for me to decide what to do with it.

13. Amazon.com I was reading a review of a book.

14. A picture of me (hehe....I still haven't decided yet if I want any pictures of myself or family here....it's not hard to track me to/from other places that have identifying info connected, but that doesn't mean I want to directly link me/them here. We'll see, I suppose....gotta figure out where I want this blog to go first).

15. A funny, but semi-inappropriate photo. I'll likely be talking about this one again, too.

16. One of my site counter thingys....except I don't use it for counting people, but rather, to look at the 'other' stats it keeps. Fun, fun.

Have I mentioned lately how much I adore Firefox, by the way? Had it not saved those for me, there are very few I would have remembered to check back with (there were a couple more on my screen that I closed last night, too, but I took care of those while on break). I like being able to have all those open in a single Firefox window, too, instead of what I used to do with a million pages open.....and it doesn't slow my comp down even in the slightest, so even better! Me gusta, me gusta, me gusta!
