Friday Five (5) and Weekly Recap

Welcome to Friday Five! This meme is run by the writers at Paper Hangover. Each week they give us a blogging prompt where we make a list about five things related to books and/or writing.

This week’s topic is “What are FIVE of your most distracting (procrastination-worthy) things (habits, websites, etc.) on the internet?”

1. Ugliest Tattoos. I usually insist on reading this until I cry from laughter, which doesn’t take long.

2. MSN Wonderwall. It’s like an online gossip magazine that doesn’t make me feel like I’m reading trash.

3. Text Twist. I get a wee bit obsessed when playing this word puzzle game.

4. Wikipedia. If I need to know something, I’m wiki-ing it.

5. Yelp. I rarely try new things anymore without first scouring the reviews on Yelp.

What sites do you frequent? I need new ones!

My weekly recap is inspired by the phenomenally talented, kind and generous Small Review. If you are not already following her, you are really missing out. Also, have I mentioned how much I love Cool Text? They’re the folks that allow me to make these cool (and simple) text buttons – for FREE!

If you’re a first time visitor, or just didn’t get the chance to stop by this week, here’s what you missed:

Armchair BEA – Nurturing Relationships
See the debut of my new blog signature!

Armchair BEA – My Top 2011 Books
See which books I’m most regretting not getting at BEA this year.

The Man Behind the (Blog) Mask – Bryan Sabol
The Man Behind the (Blog) Mask – aobibliophileâ?¢

AWAKEN by Katie Kacvinsky
4/5 stars
2011 Debut Author Challenge

  1. Two big distractions: the Zenyatta website, gorgeous horse pics & video, crazy fans, and a blog where the "horse" generally uses the phrase (in caps) TOO CUTE. But waiting anxiously to see if she's in foal.The other is Life in the Red, a blog for all things Husker. Many nutty fans there.

  2. Wow, I love Ugliest Tatoos! I'd never checked it out before today. Thank you so much for the tip, they say laughing is good for your health and you've just contributed to my mental well being! Thanks for sharing.And I suddenly feel so sane and well adjusted.

  3. Wikipedia can trap me for hoooouuuurrrss. I recently read an historical fiction book on my computer. Word to the wise, don't do that! It took me twice as long to finish the book and it's all Wikipedia's fault!
