Welcome to my first edition of stuff I like. It seems as though every other blogger does this and lately I like a lot of stuff, so I figured I’d share.
Google’s got quite a few tricks up its sleeve, but this one has got to be the weirdest. The search giant took the Kevin Bacon stunt to the next level. Google ‘[insert any celebrity name here] Bacon Number’ and find out how many degrees of separation are between any famous person and Kevin Bacon. It’s oddly entertaining.
I need to give special thanks to Leanna for this one. I am not usually a fan of daily emails, but the Skimm sends the big news of yesterday and the morning right to your inbox written in conversational terms. I kinda love it. Plus, you’ll never be that person in the office pretending you know what event your coworkers are talking about.
I have an office. The office has a desk with an electronic button to raise it to different levels to help your back. It can raises high enough to be a standing desk. Yay for modern work spaces. And yay for new jobs…. I have lots to tell y’all. Just not today.
Oktoberfest begins Saturday. You know what that means… dirndl season! I have a brand new one and cannot wait to wear it in Munich in a couple weeks. Dirndls are the most fun thing to wear in the entire world – FACT.
Grungy Pub Crawl
My dear friend Benedikt turned 23 this week and planned pretty much the best birthday party ever. He organized a pub crawl for friends at the grungiest bars in the city. You know, those bars that you see 2 old men sitting at the bar chain smoking cigs and you’re pretty sure no one else has ever stepped foot in there? We invaded about 5 of them and had the best time. The drinks were also suppperrr cheap and we always scored special deals.
This is probably one of the most exaggerated shows I’ve ever seen. Seriously, the characters are over the top. I love it. I’d been looking for a new show to watch in my spare time and so far “Arrested Development” is filling in nicely!
