Lipstick & Magazines #60: Mind

A few things that have been on it anyway (my mind, that is):

Don't know yet how I feel about these Playaway audio books...have you seen them? They're adorable! And I suppose if people share them, that's pretty cool. But there's something so disposable about the concept that I'm waffling a bit. A single book on a device - it never expires, but so much packaging for one use, no? I guess the same argument applies to an actual paper book, so maybe I'm being sentimental. I do like that they are promoting them to libraries (though they might want to think about offering a discount on ear buds for libraries - nobody's gonna be sharing those with their public library comrades...)

Personalized postage stamps - Zazzle.com is a little clunky, but yes, you can make your own for a wedding, party, or business mailing. You can also find really cool images (like from the Library of Congress) available if you need inspiration and get posters and prints too.

The East Bay's 101 Most Delicious Things To Eat in the East Bay - from Diablo Magazine

Newspaper Snippet Generator - this one's fun...give it a whirl.

Endlessly amused by how complicated it gets to keep oneself organized. See here, the 25 To Do Lists to Stay Productive. Yikes. I'll add it to my to-do list to explore to-do list options...

Wow, thats interesting that a woman consumes over 4 to 9 lbs of lipstick in her lifetime! Here is the link that I found that shows all of the research:

Why are those Playaways so expensive? The books aren't even that new! I think they are a total waste-unliken your site which is a gem!
