Summer reading recommendations

I gave myself a little goal this week of posting everyday and managed to keep it up for two whole days and now... three whole days! Whoo-hoo! Go me! (I think this deserves a chocolate martini!) Of course, I probably jinxed myself and now you won't get anything new from me for another week or two (but that's why I share this space with SJ, right? So she'll pick up the slack?)

I don't know if this is cheating (how can it be cheating when it's my goal and I make the rules?!?) but rather than writing about my completely fabulous life, I'm going to point you toward a couple of other completely fabulous people.

I just updated our links on the right just a bit and added three new sites to help you waste time at work (not that I know anything about that!). The first (which is actually listed second, just to be confusing) is by someone SJ and I know in real life. He's a sports photographer who just started a blog about what that's like. You may not be the biggest sports fan (I'm not), but I think it would be nice if you'd drop by and leave him a comment. I mean, I remember back in the day (last week) when I would post and get no comments. And now, look at us go!

Another great site is Midwestern Mommy... and I'm not just saying that because she sometimes reads this blog and even leaves us comments (but we call her Lisa instead of Mommy... that'd be weird). She just sent her son off to kindergarten today and could probably use some love (I know nothing about what it's like to send your child to school, but can relate with her drowning her sorrows with ice cream... boy, can I relate!)

Lastly, check out Passive Aggressive Notes. A different note is posted everyday and they are hysterical (and usually crazy). It's amazing what kind of notes people put up at work when no one restocks the creamer or whatever.

Feel free to wander through those recommendations. But, don't stray too far. Y'all come back now, ya hear?

Awww. Thanks for the linky love... But honestly? If I had to do it all over again? I would have went with fudgecicles. :-)

Just stumbled upon your site and, all I've gotta say is: You NEED to change the font for your posts. I can't read more than a sentence without getting a headache.

Trust me on this one...

LOL, I have the same issue.... however on IE 7 I dont have that issue at home.. but yes-- KAT... believe him

Very strange. I read FunnyGals on three different browsers and can see it just fine on all of them. If you tell me what browser you're using, it may help me fix it.

I will work on the problem.

anonymous, please let us know. we use verdana, i believe. on a mac, which both KAT use most, it appears fine.

on my pc, it also looks okay... but perhaps verdana is a mean and treacherous font that we shouldn't be using....

bloody pcs.

I'm at work right now, using Firefox on a PC... I don't know what font it's showing up as, but it sure as hell ain't Verdana. Looks more like Papyrus or something.

FunnyGal KAT said...

Hmmm, I think Firefox is the culprit. I'm looking at the blog using Firefox on a Mac and the writing IS a bit hard to read (and I agree with Blake that it's not Verdana).

The one positive is our title comes up in a really funky, cool font. Wish I could get it to look like that in Safari!

So, any ideas on how to fix this, SJ?

papyrus is a font?

i thought it was merely crushed pulp with which you make paper.

and, also, a really cool stationary store. (stationery? not sure which spelling, but i mean both: a store that does not move from its spot, and a store that sells paper products.)
