Web Weekend #6

Hello again! It’s been a long time. I wish I knew where all my time has been going. I am wayyy behind on my reading (and on my crafting and on my chores, and apparently on life in general). I decided to make an exception and do this roundup anyway even though I’m not caught up. Most notably, I’ve not gotten around to IO9 and The Mary Sue, nor Apartment Therapy. 😦
If you’re curious, I currently have 325 subscriptions.

Laughed out loud, in real life.
