It’s Wednesday. In the past two weeks, I’ve presented you with a post a week with what I’ve been reading. I’ve been calling them something along the lines of “Wednesday reads” or something to that effect, yet I’ve not yet posted them on an actual Wednesday.
Today, Wednesday, I present to you…Things I’ve Been Reading on the Internets and Beyond Since the Last Time I Presented This Kind of a List.
[Yes, I realize that is an incredibly long name for a list. But all those words are completely necessary. Trust me.]
The article title sums it up quite nicely, but they also link to the photographer/designer’s website which has even more pictures of ants being even more awesome.
It’s…awesome. (For lack of a better word. Hehehe.)
2. 30 Things Every Woman should Have and Know by the time she’s 30
I am (well) into my 30s and can say that I have and/or know most of, but certainly not all of the items on this list. I won’t say which (this is a public blog and my dad reads it, guys!), but whether you are under 30, just turned 30, or are going on your 30th consecutive 30th birthday, it’s worth the read.
Apparently, the list was originally published in Glamour in 1995 and then became an email chain letter phenomenon (back before the age of internet memes, though honestly, I’m still not sure what a meme is or if I used it correctly just now).
Reprinted in the magazine in 2005, it is now a book.
While I am all for the concept of this book, I feel I’d be remiss if I didn’t comment on the fact that Lauren Conrad and Taylor Swift are considered “notable women” on par with Maya Angelou?!
Oh right. This is by the editors of Glamour magazine. It all makes sense now.
Not that it is a surprise, but the Big Mac sauce ALONE has more than 25 ingredients. So do Pringles and Lunchables and 9 other things I’ve probably eaten and am mildly disgusted by.
Sometimes I love the Huffington Post, other times I really hate it.
Dear HuffPo editors, Sometimes ignorance really is bliss. Love, Katie
4. For all of you non-readers, I’ve even got a video.
I know that doesn’t count as reading at all, but it’s my blog and I make the rules around here.
My rule: awesomeness is always allowed, encouraged, and welcome.
I love me some Jezebel, but they get mad props for article title length and bonus points for the use of the word “prostitutey”. The content of the article is pretty great, too.
It was so unreal, I had to go to the website to make sure the article was legit. It’s a for real thing, y’all. I took that screenshot above myself!!
6. My bookshelf is always out of control, and this week is no different.
On deck: Onward: How Starbucks Fought for Its Life without Losing Its Soul and Legend by Marie Lu. Both from the library.
And….wow. That is the most, um, eclectic mix of books ever put together.
That sums me up quite nicely though, doesn’t it?
Your turn. What are you reading? Even if you say you aren’t a reader, I bet you are reading something on the internet. What is it?
Are you surprised by any of the 12 foods? The not-prostitutey “dating” website?
Aren’t ants the awesomest?!?!
