What with the holidays being so busy, this go-round the blog chain is doing a "Jingle Bell Chain" in which everyone just posts on the topic of their choice. Mary did a beautiful job talking about what a great boon online writing friends can be that I've been stymied on what to post.
Tonight, it came to me. You know that sometimes I post "timewasters" because...well, just because I end up doing silly timewasting things online when I should be writing. So in the spirit of the holidays, here are some holiday funnies from my favorite timewasting websites.
icanhascheezburger.com is probably my all-time favorite timewaster. It's filled with user-captioned photographs of funny cats (though there is a sister site for "hot dogs".). Part of what makes it so funny is that the pictures are captioned in LOLspeak, which is like a combination of Engrish and baby talk.
Last but not least, I'd like to offer something I found a while back that always makes me smile. I like speculative sf/f, but sometimes it's tough to explain the subgenres to people who aren't into that particular genre. I thought this was a great explanation for steampunk.
We're posting out of order this time, so be sure to check out the posts of everyone on the chain. Part of mixing it up was linking to different people, so in addition to Mary (above), be sure to check out the person who comes after me, Heather.
