Monday’s Open Thread: Sand Around the World

Are you on Spring Break this week? My daughter is. Only when you’re five and your parents don’t usually go anywhere during school breaks, you’re stuck at home. She’s too young to hold it against us this year.

Happy Monday, everyone! How were your weekends? I spent the whole weekend subsisting almost entirely on Cadbury Creme Eggs, so that’s what this Daily Goodie is devoted to!

TDG: 3/17 Happy St. Paddy’s Day + TURTLES *UPDATED*

Happy St. Paddy’s Day, where we in America decide everything can be dyed green while we get shitfaced on cheap beer.  We’re classy like that.  So instead of posting a bunch of pictures of clovers and whatnot, I picked turtles.  Because turtles are cool.

TDG: Sparkles!

It may surprise you to learn that quite often, the Persephone staff meetings (which take place over email and not in the Dream Office that’s in the works) contain some mention of sparkly things.

So, the Internet, in its infinite wisdom, has just taught me that “prairie dogging” actually has two meanings.

TDG and Open Thread, Presidential Style – 2/21

It’s Monday again!  AND it’s Presidents’ Day.  Do you have the day off? Whether you do or don’t, enjoy this little Animaniacs reminder of all the presidents in order.  I should have watched more Animaniacs as a kid, maybe I would do better on the “President” categories in Jeopardy.

TDG: Good Morning!

Inspired by the fact that I woke up before the sun this morning to work on Perseph, I thought I’d kick start everyone’s day with some beautiful sunrises. This way, those of you with good time-management skills don’t have to miss out on the splendor.

TDG – 2/7

G’day Persephoneers!  How’s your Monday starting off? Having trouble getting in gear?  I am technically doing this post on Sunday night and already I can tell that tomorrow morning is going to be rough.  Fortunately, this song came up on my ipod the other day and reminded me how much I like to listen to […]

The Daily Goodie: 2/4

Well, it’s a day late, but I wanted to wish all you Persephoneers a Happy Chinese New Year! The new year actually began yesterday, but since Fridays are my territory I figured we could rehash it. We are now in the Year of the Rabbit. Kiss the Year of the Tiger goodbye.

The Daily Goodie: 1/28

Happy Friday once again, my dears. Today’s Goodie is for all you bookish nerds out there. I’ve just been made aware of Book-A-Minute, a years-old website that provides short, slighly snarky summaries of classic books.

The Daily Goodie: 1/21

Here’s to what’s been a fun week around here at Persephone. Since I’ve been charged with starting off your Friday right, I’ve chosen what I believe is a fool-proof pick-me-up. It’s a choose your own adventure song.  When each little clip ends, you have two links to choose from, each representing your decision for what […]
