And by kind of old, I mean REALLY OLD. Looking back on the archive, it appears that the last official Weekend Pickthrough was in AUGUST OF 2011. Since then, I’ve continued to harvest links in a hope that I would bring the feature back around at some point, but I was just never able to get it up.
Anyway, I apologize for my blogging erectile dysfunction. I am finally back in fighting shape again, and working hard to satisfy you. Here we go:
Well, they’re not always a home run (and the author annoyingly has a link to his novel on the blog), but I did see a picture of soap that said “Grow Them Titties” on it, so i’m still reasonably satisfied with Worst Things for Sale.
Meant to be a cautionary tale about the real odds of the lottery, I obsessively let this program run 24 hours a day on my computer for 3 weeks until I hit the jackpot.
My dad was a marathon runner in the 80s, and I can confirm sufficient childhood trauma involving nipple Band Aids.
A fashion blog about old ladies. FABULOUS old ladies. I want to be every single one of these women when I grow up.
6 ways to know you’re in a murder hotel. (I want to write for Slate SO BAD).
A heartbreaking tale of herpes from which we can all learn a lesson (I’m totally serious).
Now, before I leave you to digest these slightly stale and irregular links, here are a few things that I’ve been up to these past weeks:
At mainetoday.com, I wrote about snow days, gambling, and internet dating. And then I got interviewed about cybersex and puffy pirate shirts by one of the best people I know. Also, I realized that I never posted this story that I wrote (for one of my favorite websites) about my debilitating allergies.
