around the internet
In my little break from writing (well not so much actual writing as so far today I have been tediously editing for passive voice and deleting, deleting and more deleting) I've been checking out my various frequently visited places on the internet and I thought I'd share some things I found.
My favorite photography blog, Satan's Laundromat, has posted highlights of the best pictures from the past year (here).
The brilliant found photo blog, Big Happy Fun House, as an especially interesting picture of a cell phone ad from 1985 here.
Forgotten NY has added (just today!) a new phototour of the oldest bars in Manhatten (here)! I've been to Chumley's a lot- its one of my favorite bars in the city. I've also been to the White Horse Tavern and McSorley's. The beer at McSorley's is just wonderful and all the interesting pictures on the walls (and the wishbones) made me kind of rude and non-conversational with the people I was with the last time I hung out there.
I added a link to a newly discovered blog, Views From a Broad. Not only did I find this blog through Nina's Ocean, but the owner of Views From a Broad found me the same way. She is also a knitter! Also, her post today about rats in manhatten is especially funny. Jo just got back from the city and reported that since Bloomberg cut all funding for rat-control, rats are now all over the place!
Its snowing in Maine again today. My parents informed me that everything is cancelled so that storm must be pretty big. It takes a lot of snow to shut Maine down. If you're feeling sad about the March snow here in Madison, check out the accumulating snow in my hometown on this live webcam of exciting downtown Bath!
