I follow around 50 blogs, news sites and random feeds on my Google Reader. Whenever something catches my eye, makes me laugh or moves me I tend do drop a little star action on it. Here is a few of what caught my eye.

Things to Do in the Belly of a Whale
from Everything And Nothing by Shawn Zehnder Lea

My lovely and close friend Shawn Lea provides us with Everything and Nothing. With multiple blog posts a day, ranging from deals to poetry it’s exactly the kind of blog I love. This post was in regards to a dead twitter and a flying whale. Brilliant.

Hitman monkey
from Lolcats 'n' Funny Pictures - I Can Has Cheezburger? by ichctcf

I get a very base pleasure out of LolCats. They never fail to cheer me up when i'm having a day that’s less than stellar.

Oh, Baby
from Have A Good Sandwich by Woy

This post means a lot to me as its Mike Woychecks first post about his new baby. Mike is someone that everyone in the Pittsburgh new media scene knows, likes, and in many cases, looks up to. So this was one of those rare moments where we could all come together and smile. I like that.

Notes From the Road ... The Home Edition
from Anthony Bourdain's Blog: Anthony Bourdain: No Reservations : World, Travel, Food, Wine by Tony

At heart, i’m a foodie. An angry, bitter, broke foodie who can’t indulge in so many things. That’s part of the reason I enjoy former Les Halles head chef Anthony Bourdain so much. He’s a foodie at heart. A bitter, angry, rich foodie who can eat wherever he likes and gets paid for it. Snark in its finest form.

The United Nations, Encapsulated
from Overheard in New York

I could have filled this whole post with Overheard in New York links. This one is an excellent example of the wit that comes out of this site. Enjoy.
