Sadie's Stumbles: Part 1

Well hi there! Don't you just look lovely today! Don't look out your window, I'm not peepin' you, I just know you look great. Call it instinct, call it my sixth or tenth sense, call it what you will. I just know these things.

I haven't had any Rootsy stuff to write about since I am on day two of my weekend. Never fear, I'm back there tomorrow with bells on! Maybe I should skip the bells part hey? Think that would be too much? I suppose I could have stalked the staff and gone in on my days off, or peered through the windows, wide eyed and camera ready, but I don't think that would have gone over too well. Plus I'm lazy, as I've stated previously. But come tomorrow, I will have photos to twit or flick(r), words to type, stories to tell, shinnanigans to document, all that good stuff!

I decided that I would share with you guys some of what I do on my weekends. I'm not going to get in to all the boring details of how many times I brushed my teeth, or flat ironed my hair, or played with my new Mac makeup (thank youuuuu Crystal!), but I will share with you some of my Stumbles!

What are stumbles? There is this great site called that basically lets you check off your interests and then you click 'stumble' and it takes you to a bazillion random websites. I honestly spend hours doing this... it's becoming a bit of an obsession, bordering on some sort of new compulsive disorder. However, I do find some really interesting sites and I figured I'd share a few of them with you!

So without further adios... or adieu or something like that, I bring you the first addition of 'Sadie's Stumbles', brought to you by the letter W. W being for weekend of course!

Sadie's Stumbles: Part 1

I stumbled on this little gem today, and oddly enough I was not sure where my phone was. 'Why the heck not' I thought to myself as I hunted and pecked in my cell number. Sure enough, I heard the little tell tale 'ding a ring ding sing sing dong ding ticka lala' sound of my cell ringing somewhere in the mountain of coats, purses and other paraphernalia on my bed. My ringtone doesn't totally sound like that, but it's close. I answered it and a mysterious automated lady was quite happy that I had, indeed, found my phone. But then she hung up on me... which I thought was a bit rude. Maybe I wanted to get to know her! A neat site to bookmark if you are like me and lose things quite frequently!

Future me is a great idea for a site. You know the concept of time capsules where you stuff some items and a letter to yourself and shove it in a pod, bury it under a random tree and come back 30 years later to dig it up and cry over your past? Yeah it's kind of like that, only fully online based and you don't have to bury Fozzy your favorite childhood teddy bear for 30 years! I wrote myself a nice little letter reminding 'future me' to keep keepin' on and never stop trying to be awesome. Hopefully future me finally becomes awesome and stops being such a total dork! Give it a try, write future you something! Just remember you have done it and never lose the email address :)

I am a huge sucker for all things photography. It's something I do on the side, and would like to do more of in the future. This being said, I have about 100+ photography based websites and blogs bookmarked. This site, however, caught my attention for the amazing quality of photos that are displayed. I spent a good amount of time on here with equal parts awe and envy. It's 'totes' worth checking out if you like to look at pretty pictures!

WARNING: This site contains 'swer wordz'.

Terribleminds is written by a man named Chuck Wendig. I could rattle on about how awesome this dude is and what a great writer he is, but I will leave that for you to check out. He writes about all sorts of things and he is insanely witty, funny, sarcastic and one badass writer. I stumbled here tonight and spent a SOLID amount of time reading his blog. I am going to go read more when I am done writing here. He is my new blog/writer hero, he's that good. I laughed several times, and smirked through most of his entries. I suggest getting yourself a nice hot cup'a'joe, or some tea, or warm milk or... hot rum, and spending a bit of time reading over there. A.m.a.z.i.n.g. That's all I can say.

I found this site a while ago and watched all of the videos. However I randomly stumbled on it again today and thought 'OH! I want to SHARE this!!' It is like a modern day Garfield with less orange, more open doodly lines and funny noises. There is no Odie, but there are other little critters, and yes, Simon. It is so cute, and I guess you could say 'cat typical' that if you have ever been a cat owner, or you are one, I promise you that you will get a chuckle out of this.

That's it folks. That's my stumbles for this weekend. I shall bring you more next weekend!

I will catch you all on the flip side (SEE: Roots the Salon) tomorrow.

Keep it classy!

Thank you for calling,

    As your new blog hero, I promise to rescue blog kittens and punch blog villains. In the face. With my ink-smeared fists.

    No, seriously, that's really nice of you to say those things! Thanks much, and thanks for sending people over yonder hills to terribleminds!

    Catherine... there is no way out. Once you start Stumbling you will never stop. It's the crack of the interwebz!!

    And woah... WOAH. My blog hero commented to MY blog? Excuse me for a second while I have a fangirl moment.


    Ok all better. Haha, thanks Chuck for the awesome comment! And no problem, great writing like yours has to be shared! You're a rare find and you deserve platters of homemade cookies!
