Because I'm Your Link Slave . . .

I'm giving you my favorites around the web from this past week. That's what happens when my husband's out of town. I sit up watching dumb movies and spending too much time on Stumbleupon.

But when I saw these I was caught in two conflicting emotions: reverence and laughter. I mean, it's bacon right? Who would have the audacity to take something as healthy as a salad then encapsulate it in pig fat? But then there's the other half of my brain that says "Genius!"

If you want details for making these mini myocardial infarctions then please see Not Martha. And bring the Lipitor.

Then I also follow this flower arranging site which had this pretty little idea for some fresh cut flowers. My garden is ripe for cutting and a simple idea like these beaded bracelets around a tin can is well-timed.

Do you ever look at those "Flower Arrangement of the Month" features in Martha Stewarts' magazine and roll your eyes like I do? In my mind it takes absolutely no skill whatsoever to pull out four dozen roses and make them look nice. Or 28 peonies or whatever. What impresses me far more is to find cute creative arrangements for just a few blossoms. Now that's something.

Then there's this link I found that defies description. Click on it. It's completely pointless and is a huge waste of time but yet strangely intoxicating while being subconsciously disturbing. Like being chased by a room full of daddy long legs. And if that description doesn't pique your interest I don't know what will.

Oh and there's this cute little table top soccer game someone made for their kids out of little wooden pegs . . .

And this sandwich made to look like a rubic's cube. Only out of processed deli meats. Again with the bacon. What's wrong with me?

I am laughing out loud at that one link with the walking whatchacallits. :)

And bacon wrapped salad - it's really an oxymoron, no? But they are so wonderfully CUTE!

Laura said...

Michelle, could you check the link for the bacon bowl with salad? because when i click on it, i get a free knitting pattern :-D

Carina said...

Oh yes, I am very disturbed by the little grandaddy-long-legs. Freaked out, almost. As I clicked to close my tab one of them was reaching out a long arm as if to stop me. Gave me the heebie jeebies, it did.

jacjewelry said...

Wow! Bacon and salad - what a great combo. :)

karen said...

I always put bacon in my spinach and cobb salads...but I never thought to put my spinach or cobb salads IN bacon - genius! Laura's right, though, the link goes to knitting. While I appreciate your efforts to prolong the working life of my arteries, I'm curious to know how one makes bacon cups!

Maddy said...

Hmm you have been busy surfin. That one does defy description.
Cheers

You are right it is a bit disturbing to have little things follow your mouse.

I am overwhelmed with the possibilities of the bacon bowl... we could cut up hamburger, top with cheese, serve with toast points and voila!

Did not like the website that defies description. I did not like it one bit :-)

Thanks for sharing!

Michelle,

Aren't those like BLT's for real without the bread?

Gotta love the creativity on all these links. I am also sure that I am not up for the Rubik's sandwich!

Well, I know a way to solve the problem of a salad in a bacon cup. Make the bacon cup and fill it with something much less healthy - like chili. Then save the salad for making yourself feel better the next day.

Connie said...

Same problem with bacon salad site, goes to a knitting patter site. enjoyed to other sites, looking forward to the bacon salad site.

Ah, bacon. NOW you're speaking my language!

illahee said...

loved the daddy long legs! i actually felt sorry for the one with short legs so i put the pointer on top of it. LOL

love jo's blog, too! yay!

Beverlydru said...

This was an entertaining post. The person who created the Daddy Long Legs page had more time to kill than we do ! LOL

Stephanie said...

Okay. That "daddy long legs" link? Creepy, Weird, "Subconsciously Disturbing." Yes on all three counts...

but, oddly, interesting.

Janet said...

"mini myocardial infarction" made me laugh. What about fake bacon? (Morningstar Farms) would that work?

the spider thing? When I clicked on the page they were all clumped up having an orgy. Then all but 2 of them moved over 2 inches and continued the orgy, while the remaining two crawled nearly legless back toward them.
I'm going to have the crawls for days.

The sandwich is a Rubikardial infarction. But clever.

Love the soccer teams.
Also the beads around the jar vase.

Now they're playing follow the leader. Somehow I can't bring myself to close that tab.
