Friday Fun Day — 7/20

20 Jul


Well, this has been a crazy week around here. Thank you, again, to all the new people for stopping by and checking out my blog. It’s really been a great lift to my spirits to read all of your great comments. I’ve also added a TON of books to my to-be-read list! Thank you, thank you, thank you.

What I Learned this Week

  • Americans spend $310 million a year on pet Halloween costumes, $800 million on Girl Scout cookies, and $2.3 BILLION on tattoos, and $66 million on tattoo removal. Awesome. (Thanks, Mentalfloss)
  • A watermelon will implode if you put enough rubber bands around it! I had to watch the video over and over and over before I believed it. (Thanks, Serious Eats)
  • Nickelodeon slime is made out of a variety of food products — lots of pudding, cream of wheat and applesauce. Yum. (Thanks, Mentalfloss)
  • Oh Dizzle can be included on the same list as NY Times, Huffpo and The Guardian, even though that seems insane, and I’m sure this is the only time this will ever happen. WHAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA. Thank you so much, Book Riot! Seriously made my morning!


 British people may seem to apologise a lot, but it doesn’t quite mean the same thing here. In the UK, “I’m sorry” actually means either a) I didn’t hear you; b) I didn’t understand you; or c) I both heard and understood you, and I think you’re an idiot.

See everyone on Monday! Happy weekend!
