Cara’s Friday Finds
—I want my old MTV. I love reminiscing about old music videos. They sure don’t make them like they used to… Cheesy storylines slapped together with random tour footage. That’s why I love Vh1Classic.com. It’s where you can find fun video playlists from the 70s, 80s, and 90s. Watch one of your old favorites. Believe me, you’ll instantly be in a better mood! I’m starting my day with a little “Nothin’ But A Good Time.”
—Oh, good. I love parties. I’ve posted before about GoodyBlog.com. It’s a great blog from the editors of Parents Magazine. Anyway, they’re having a blog party and giving away 6 cool door prizes. To enter, just leave a comment.
—Sick of astronomical phone bills? If you are a mathematician, maybe you could do something similar to what this guy did. Check out the “memo” for an extra laugh. (Thanks to my kickin’ cubemate MK for finding this.)
—Public Service Announcement videos are usually pretty cheese, but these two are downright scary. Check this one (courtesy of our co-worker BP) and this one, but be forewarned: They are slightly shocking. Shocking, but still entertaining because it is TV after all—not real!
Susan’s Friday Finds
—Welcome to The MotherHood. This new online mom neighborhood provides the usual network stuff—cool links, groups, blogs, and people. It was started by two moms, Cooper and Emily, who came up with the idea a year and a half ago while talking in a coffee shop. Isn’t that how all great ideas begin? Check out their charter—I love it! If you decide to join, check out the Working Moms group.
—If you have a fancy mobile phone and a pet, raise your paw. Purina and go2 joined forces to launch go2 Pets, a mobile-friendly yellow pages for all things pet-related. Enter a zip code to find dog parks, pet-friendly accommodations, camping, airlines, fun places, kennels, vets, and more. Visit the website to preview the mobile version and get a link texted to your phone (or just text “pets” to 462411).
—When office workers stop being polite and start getting real. Remember when I talked about True Mom Confessions in a previous Friday Finds? Now it has a new sister site, True Office Confessions. The tagline: “A lot can happen between 9 and 5.” I’ll say. A whole lot of nothing, judging from these Lazy McSlackersons “confessing” on the site.
