I'm a fan of Google+ (add me!). Here's an article from Thought Catalog on Why We Choose ‘The Circle’. Also watch the video that's embedded in the article. I think the ability to sort people in circles is where Google+ shines. Once more people sign up I think I'll be spending more time there than Facebook.

Persistence, love for a service, and eight emails to it's founder got this guy a job at Foursquare. // This Email Got One Stanford Student A Huge Job At Foursquare

I wouldn't say I'm obsessed but I'm strangely fascinated by the mommy bloggers or more specifically the Mormon mommy bloggers. I am not Mormon. I am not a mom. Personally I cannot relate to these women at all but I still read their blogs. They have cute kids, cute husbands who dress well, and the women have adorable personal style. It's like little hidden pockets of sunshine out on the internet. I first heard about them back in January when I read this article on the Salon called "Why I can't stop reading Mormon housewife blogs". The author listed off some she can't stop reading and I have to say, she got me hooked too.

My absolute favorite mommy blogger is Heather Armstrong otherwise known as Dooce. She would probably kick in the face for calling her a mommy blogger so I take that back (sorry Heather!). She liberal. She's an ex-Mormon. She has no filter and I love her for it. And she just happens to write about her husband, two daughters, and two very interesting dogs.

This past weekend I came across Epic Meal Time. I don't know where I've been. Shawn and I watched all 38 episodes. Each episode got more ridiculous than the last. I can't believe none of these guys have gained an excessive amount of weight and/or had a heart attack! Below are some of my favorites. Also, this show is pretty NSFW language wise but it's so hilarious you're gonna want to share it with everyone.

The Candy BBQ is the only one Shawn and I can participate in since we're pescatarians!.

Speaking of awesome cooking shows, check out Vegan Black Metal Chef.
