So, what’ve you been up to?

So. Yes. Sometimes things slow down around here. Let’s speed it up a little with another big round-up post.


Filmly: Ever wonder how abandoned shopping carts end up where they do? Check out this great short film by Jesse Rosten.

Lostly: For more on the subject be sure to see “The Stray Shopping Carts of Eastern North America: A Guide to Field Identification.”

Minely: And of course you already know I wrote a book based on this very site. Right? You knew that didn’t you? It’s called “Milk Eggs Vodka: Grocery Lists Lost and Found” and you can buy it. Or you could buy my other book.


Creeply: The creepiest refrigerator of all time? I think I’ve seen worse. In fact, if you want creepy try looking at these gross food packages, or this amazing mask, or anything on this page.

Bestly: There is a rumor that this is the world’s best pancake recipe. Let’s all try it and see.

Cholesteroly: I can vouch for this apple dumpling recipe, though. Made it. Insane. Yum.

Mathly: If you’d rather skip the heart attack, then try making a mathematically correct breakfast—yes, a real Mobius Sliced Linked Bagel.


Linky: I added my feed as a linkblog on the home page, making that the first design change to the page since I posted that layout in 2002.

Run-on-sentencey: Last month I went to SXSWi and had fun and met cool people I’d only known online and saw others I hadn’t seen in a long time and I came home inspired to make things but not quite sure what then it hit me that while there are hundred of funny and strange periodic tables out there on the web there was no periodic table that rounded up the best of the periodic tables. So I made one.

Oh, and here’s the token grocery link: Healthy Eating Begins at the Supermarket — Learn to efficiently shop for healthy foods.
