Day 21: Fun Websites
I spent the day holed up in my bedroom, writing blog posts and reading The Help, coming out only to change out the laundry, take the dog out to do his business, and get food and drink. Suddenly, it occurred to me that the day was nearly over that I hadn't tried anything new. A quick Google search led me to a blog post on Knowzine, 15 Cool Websites To Try When You Are Bored. I wasn't bored so much as desperate, but I checked out two of them.
Ben-Hur won the Oscar for movie of the year. Alaska was admitted as the 49th state. Two monkeys became the first living beings to return from a trip to outer space. Smoke Gets In Your Eyes by The Platters was at the top of the charts. Fritz the Cat made his first appearance as a comic book character. Wow. 1959 was a long time ago!
The Google-style logo I created is at the top of this post. Cute, huh? There are more styles to choose from. Give it a whirl!
