Research Smorgasbord

BlogCarnAugust5-01

Today’s Writer Wednesday blog topic is a fun one—share three interesting items you found while researching on the internet recently.

 

Seeing as how I’ve been deep in revision mode lately, my Googling has been more for fun, or in the midst of a conversation with someone and we don’t know the answer to a question. So what you’ll see is that my three searches have nothing in common, and only one has to do with writing.

 

  1. My last day in New York City before heading home from the RWA National conference I was lucky enough to spend the day enjoying the city with one of my daughters. We went on a run through Central Park, enjoyed a delicious lunch at Carmine’s, enjoyed a FABULOUS Broadway show, shared a tasty dessert at Sardi’s, and then headed off to the airport/train station.

 

I tell you this to preface my guilty pleasure, motivational music Google search for YouTube videos featuring music or performances of Something Rotten—the AHHHmazing musical we had the great fortune to see.

This musical has everything to entice everyone from the theatre lover to the theatre novice. Catchy tunes, hilarious writing, incredible performers, beautiful costumes and more!

I can’t get enough of this album!!!

 

  1. My day job is a sedentary one, so I have to make sure I get up and walk around our office building to get moving. Some days I’m better at remembering than others. Then I get home after work and jump on my lap top to work on my writing.

 

Sitting all day and a good part of the evening makes for a back that tweaks with pain and a bottom that wants to get bigger. Not a nice combination.

 

So, I started looking into a standing desk. Something that travels easily so I can bring it to my day job office, then take it home at night—at least for the weekends. This meant, Googling “travel standing desk” to see what I might find.

Voila! I came across this site with several options I’m considering:

desk-portable

desk-affordable

  1. And finally, I didn’t find this last site because I was doing research, but more because it’s less than 5 weeks from opening day of college football, when my beloved Gators take the field. I couldn’t resist checking out the latest news on my Gator football team, anticipating tailgate season and all the fun that entails.

 

In case you’re interested too, here’s the link to Gatorzone where you’ll find the latest info about all University of Florida athletic teams.

As you can see, my tastes and interests are varied, it really depends on my mood and what’s going on in my life at that moment. Hence, the variety of topics I’ve Googled in recent days.

 

What about you? Care to share something interesting you’ve researched lately, or came across by accident while surfing the web?
