Know Your Flow
I've never personally tracked the "my time of the month" cycle, but some women really like to do this. Perhaps it's a good way to document cases of PMS or to plan pool parties, but I suppose I never had a reason to pay attention to my flow. But now that Vinnie's Giant Roller Coaster Period Chart and Journal Sticker Book has hit the shelves (thanks to the cool kids at Chronicle Books) I may have to give my menstrual cycle its long-overdue appreciation. It's kind of hard to believe a fella wrote/illustrated this book. I'm impressed.

Milk Bottle of the Week
Not all milk bottles look alike. In fact, some are downright arty. Check out this site for a gallery of unusual milk bottle designs and more. These are much better than seeing a missing kid's mug shot on the side of a carton. Moo.

Flame Broiled
Working at a fast food joint is no picnic. If you read the book Fast Food Nation you know what I mean. This site mainly deals with disgruntled employees working at Burger King. Check out the complaints against customers and the "getting even" section for a little insight.

NYC Bloggers
Bloggers can be a tight-knit community, and NYC bloggers are even tighter. If you live in the East Coast, or just wanna read blogs from folks living in the Bronx, Brooklyn, Queens, Staten Island and Manhattan, then this is the directory for you. I love that the navigation of this site mimics the subway routes. Nice touch.

The Church of SpongeBob SquarePants
It was only a matter of time that SpongeBob would have his own church. If you'd like to convert, this site has everything you need to get started: behavioral/mental tenets and principles, scripture, services, sacraments and hymns. Forgive me Patrick, for I have sinned. It's been a whole week since I last ate a Crabby Patty.

Insultingly Stupid Movie Physics
Leave it to a bunch of nerds to ruin the movie A.I. for me. This site proves once in for all that most movie directors have never set foot in a physics class. Get the lowdown on why sparking bullets is an absurd concept and why you shouldn't actually hear spacecrafts move or explode. The site even has formulas to back up the gripes. Be sure to read the snippy reviews of films that royally screwed up science laws right and left.

Interactive Skeleton
If you're a control freak who likes to navigate the way someone walks, runs or stands you might want to visit this site. It's creepy how fun playing with a skeleton can be, isn't it?

The Johnny Depp Quiz
Ever wonder which Johnny Depp character you're most like? Take this quiz to find out! I'm Edward From Edward Scissorhands. I wonder if I got that because I listen to Depeche Mode?
