Linky Linky Link-a-dinks

Lately, I've been exposed to a lot of new things in a variety of forms.  Watching new movies, reading new blogs, playing new games. 

I've never done a "Best of the Internet" post.  Maybe it's about time that I did!

http://www.dearblankpleaseblank.com/
You know how people do those little letters on their Facebook statuses all the time that read "Dear blank, please do so-and-so.  Love, Blank"?  Well, this is a site full of those.  Except that these are actually funny.

http://www.textsfromlastnight.com/
The title says it all.  This place is for people with an inappropriate sense of humor.  It glorifies sex, alcohol and drugs.  And usually, it's freakin' hilarious.

http://www.postsecret.com/
People have secrets that they can't tell anyone, but they want to get it off their chest, so they send in a postcard here.  New ones are posted every Sunday.

http://www.illwillpress.com/
It's sort of like an animated web comic.  Just started watching these last night, but they're worth the recommendation, even for the uniqueness alone.  It takes a pretty odd sense of humor to subscribe to these, but it's worth a try!

http://www.mylifeisaverage.com/
A retaliation to FML.  It started as a place to post average things that happen in life, but slowly evolved into a place where extraordinary things happen, when Harry Potter is loved by all, everyone's still looking for Waldo and Twilight deserves death by ninjas.  I don't read these as much as I used to, but I was addicted at one point.  Maybe you'll like them too.

http://www.hulu.com/
Okay, so you haven't been well acquainted with the internet if you don't know this site yet.  But just in case you don't, you can watch TV shows on here with limited commercials.  (Psst...they have Glee episodes!)

http://www.pandora.com/
You give it a song you like, it gives you an entire radio station of music tailored to your tastes.  It's amazing.  Need I say more? 

http://www.hyperboleandahalf.com/
Okay, so I wasn't going to put any blogs on here, but I couldn't help it.  This woman is a comic genius.  She makes me laugh out loud even when I'm reading by myself.  She draws cartoons to help illustrate her stories.  Funniest crap ever!  Go there now.

Pretty much all of these sites can be visited for just a few minutes, so you can look at any of them even if you don't have much time.  They're always there to go back to, and they all update pretty regularly.

Okay, I need to go to class now.  Happy hunting!

I absolutely love Post Secret. I look forward to the new ones every Sunday. :) And ahh, MLIA is so incredibly hilarious, as is the writer behind Hyperbole And A Half! I discovered her blog a little while ago and find it absolutely hysterical :D Finally, Hulu is basically the best invention ever. In fact, I'm watching Modern Family on Hulu right now. Plus it's not blocked at school, so I can catch up on my TV there too... oh yeah :)

My girls and my husband all read Hyperbole and A Half. She is brilliant and I laugh out loud, wheezing, whenever I read her blog. Did you see one of her latest with the story of her dental surgery and her friend's birthday party? OMG! I haven't laughed that hard in I don't know how long. Totally agree with almost every single one of your others. And now I gotta go, I gotta plug in my Pandora and go read some Hyberbole.
