WO: Weekly Obsessions

I’m likely working through the weekend, so Wednesday isn’t much of a hump day for me this week. Luckily, I have these four distractions to keep my sanity intact:

  1. This Guy: I announced a while back that Jack Blankenship would be my future first husband, and he’s only become more popular since. From “The Today Show” to BuzzFeed, that mug is everywhere.
  2. NFL Draft: It’s finally football season again, and I can’t wait to see how this year’s draft shakes up the teams. The beauty of not having a favorite franchise: Watching “the dominoes fall.”
  3. Sporcle: In the middle of a particularly draining workday? Take a mental break with Sporcle, a trivia game site that offers anything from People’s Sexiest Men (nailed it) to The Periodic Table (failed it).
  4. The State of the Web: The Oatmeal provides a biannual recap of all things webby, and this season’s release exceeded all expectations. My fave? How to read articles on Facebook. Genius.

Hope you’re all having a wonderful week. Wish I could say this song was my life, but alas …

Skip to 2:24 for the actual song … thanks, YouTube!

    Good ole Ms. Dougherty, HS Chem – RIP. Glad you got the sexiest men although “nailed it” may be a poor word choice.

      It rhymes with “failed it” — how could I go wrong! And yes, Ms. Dougherty would not be pleased with me right now … never could memorize those elements! (Except K for Potassium, because King Kong eats bananas, which have potassium!)
