Round-Up: Lagniappe

roundup

Lagniappe means a little something extra. Sometimes bloggers and websites give you a little more than what you’d expect, and I think that’s just awesome! Below is a roundup of my favorite websites that definitely do not give you too little.


The Oatmeal

English

From the comic ‘What we SHOULD have been taught our senior year of high school’

I am a longtime fan of The Oatmeal. The Oatmeal writes about animals, flossing, grammar, science, tech, running, and all sorts of other things.


  Fake Science

leaveschanging

The mission of Fake Science is to educate as many people as possible without the burden of knowing anything. Fake Science describes itself as a less than factual guide to our amazing world. I love the details in the 50s & 60s style posters which feature completely inaccurate information.


TV Tropes

Tropes are devices and conventions that a writer can reasonably rely on as being present in the audience members’ minds and expectations. TV Tropes is one of those sites where you innocently look up the trope where every pregnant person on a TV show goes to Lamaze class even though you have never known anyone who actually went to a Lamaze class in real life.  Three hours later you find yourself deep in the abyss that is TV Tropes.


Loving Food, Fashion, & Life

Loving Food, Fashion, & Life is just about that. LFFL shares her stories about being a foodie, dating, her love of fashion, spending time with friends, and anything else she feels like blogging about.


Tyrone Tribulations

tyroneI somehow happened upon a blog post about a teacher retiring for the 9th consecutive year then got lost in the blog and all its glory. It is a satire site kind of like The Onion but different. It focuses on a place called Tyrone and all its goings on. It’s ridiculously odd and completely funny.
