Friday Recap: Future Cat-Lady Edition
Are you feeling as tired and nonfunctional today as I am? I hope so. It will make this Recap far more enjoyable for all of us. So will looking at Matt Cutts’ cats. His Ozzie looks identical to my Jack Jack, who also happens to enjoy
destroying playing in artificial Christmas trees. I’d post a picture of Jack but Susan won’t let me. She doesn’t have a soul.
With both PubCon and SES Chicago taking place this week, you may be feeling a bit run down. Perhaps you’re exhausted from reading all the blog coverage, maybe you lost some money at the tables, maybe you were "networking" too hard or maybe you’re just burnt out from all the mad scootering you did. Either way, don’t let yourself get down. You’re still great. We’re all great. Right, Ze?
Feel better? Yeah, me neither. Maybe I’d be feeling better if I’d gone to SES instead of PubCon. They got snow. Snow makes everything better. Snow is made of magic and fairies. [Lies. --Susan] It’s true. I read it on the Internet!
Lee Odden was at PubCon and snapped a cute picture of the adorable Robin Liss. But let’s face it, it’s really my Ask.com bag that’s the star of that picture, don’t you think? Or maybe it’s Michael Gray’s innocent face.
Michael from Solo SEO put together a list of the best schwag from PubCon 2007. Somehow the famed Bruce Clay tangle made it on the list. I was personally a fan of the digital dice and the funky T-shirts handed out by Sure Hits.
Just a note, if I were you, I’d stay away from Barry Schwartz. Birds seem to drop dead around him. That can’t be a good sign.
Evan Carmichael posted the top 50 SEO posts of the year. Ironically enough, it seems most of the posts he mentioned weren’t actually from 2007. Also, I had no idea that Bruce wrote The Lisa’s Problem With Wikipedia Explained. You would think he would have written about his own problem instead of stealing mine!
Problogger outlined the 7 Unhealthy Eating Habits of Unproductive Bloggers which perfectly illustrates why I have gained 50lbs over my two year stint as a blogger. However, the post failed to mention the badness that occurs when you hit up the buffet at the Bellagio and eat your weight in seafood and desserts. Not that I would know anything about that.
The makers of this scale are awesome. Not because they aim to give you your weight in terms of an animal, but because they don’t hide the fact that unless you live in Ireland or Europe, you’re just the "rest of the world" to them.
These people have way too much time, and paint, on their hands.
That is one rebellious bird. You show them, dude!
I thought Tamar had a big mouth, but this guy totally trumps her. She still probably has more schwag though.
Proof that beer is divine. If you turn up your speakers, you can hear the angels in the background.
Susan and I made paper snowflakes when we decorated the office for Christmas. We were pretty excited by our awesomeness. Then we saw these 3D snowflakes. We suck at life.
Life Lesson #983: Be on your best behavior during the holiday season or your parents will sell your Christmas gifts on eBay. Ouch.
The first rule of the slap fight: Make sure everyone knows the rules of the slap fight. Otherwise, you may get a roundhouse kick to the face.
