IRF Weekly Wrap-up
Guest Post Submission: We have set up a new email address for you to submit Guest Posts or ideas for posts that you would like for one of us to write about. We’d like to hear about pop culture, food, movies, books, music, television, sports, politics or even a Limerick (a not so subtle plea to Massimo). Please send gust posts to inrareformguestpost at yahoo dot com.
IRF 2008 Presidential Straw Poll: If you haven’t voted yet, please make sure to cast your vote in our little survey. The voting is completely anonymous. We’ll announce the winner in next week’s Weekly Wrap-up.
IRF Recipes is growing slowly but surely. Please add YOUR favorite recipes in the comments section. This week I tried a new recipe which I highly recommend (compliments of my friend, Cassie). It is a Fruit Salsa with Cinnamon & Brown Sugar chips.
Links to Check Out
- TRAVEL: IRF reader, Stephanie, discovered an interesting site for all you world travelers. Among other things, TravBuddy enerates a map of all the countries you have been to. My showing is embarrassing–6%–clearly time for me to take another trip. You all go fill our your own maps and tell me your score. Which IRF reader has visited the highest percentage of the world? My money is on Heidi.
- FASHION: Last week we drew your attention to the work of our favorite Fashion Stylist, this week we bring you You Look Fab where we learn that purple is very big this fall.
- PHOTO BOOKS: LeMare’s sister, Kerry, discovered an interesting way to preserve your photographic memories. Blurb is a company that allows you to download free software so you can design your own soft or hard-bound coffee table book. No more dealing with silly double-sided tape, dye-cuts, stickers, and all that other scrapbooking nonsense I got suckered into a decade ago. I think of it as classy scrapbooking. I’m doing a Japan scrapbook first, and then I’ll move to previous trips. A good gift idea, too–Travels, weddings, cook books… Endless possibilities.
- TELEVISION: SPOTD has me excited for the return of The Office with the Season Premier trailer. I can’t wait. If I can’t have Arrested Development anymore, at least I have The Office.
Search Term Saturday
geico lizard costume: Oh my goodness, could it be? Has my October 31st attire question been solved? I just found one on ebay, but it gave me the creeps.
remains of the day lunchbox: This search has been so frequent over the last week, that Joe Miller has suggested we commission a reasonable facsimile to be manufactured that we can peddle on this very site.
massage embarassing moment: This has been frequent lately, as well. Apparently our Guest Poster is not the only one to have experienced this brand of mortification.
Flannel Shirt Boyfriend Arm Pillow: This Harriet Carter fan is always welcome back on IRF.
Golden Girls makeup bags: DO THESE REALLY EXIST? WHY DO I NOT HAVE ONE?
scott baio in speedo pics: GOOD NIGHT! Do we look like Hugh Heffner here, peddling smut?
what to do with a whiny male co-worker: I’m smiling. JL certainly learned this the hard way with Larry’s Manifesto.
