Friday Night Fab Five: Dot Com

Hi everyone and welcome to this week's Friday Night Fab Five where I list 5 things that I currently adore. This week is all about who knows what as I'm writing this off the top of my head. Should make for an interesting 5, no? Let's see what I manage to come up with here...Hey, I know! How about some ultra cool website-type places?

1. Lamebook

(From this post on Lamebook)

No lie, I spent about 2 hours (at least, I really don't want to tell you how long it really was) reading through Lamebook and I haven't laughed that hard in a looooong time. They showcase the best of the lamest on Facebook and it is awesome. It also serves as a reminder of why my profile is "Friends Only".

2. Ravelry
Ravelry is THE place to be if you're into crocheting, knitting or any fiber art. It's free to be a member of the community and it's filled with groups, forums and tons of patterns. Lots of fun stuff here.

3. Irregular Choice

("Trinklettina" on Irregular Choice)

This is where I go to get my shoe porn fix...if I ever get disposable income, watch out Irregular Choice!!!

4. Hulu

Since we got rid of traditional "TV", Hulu gets me caught up with some of the shows I enjoy...well, use to enjoy because The Office has really sucked this season so far...

5. Regretsy

Regretsy's tagline is "Where DIY meets WTF". Best Tagline Ever. Regretsy features all of the WTF's of the handmade world and it is as much of a black hole of time loss as Lamebook.

So there you go - 5 sites to check out and waste your entire weekend're welcome. :D

So do you have a favorite site? Link it up in your comment and share it with the entire class!


  1. great list Maggi, but I am staying away from those time suckers! LOL! OK, well except Hulu. Can't stay away from there. Happy Friday!

  2. Awesome list, Maggi! Lamebook sounds like it could be a real laugh. And did you know that there is actually a Regretsy book available??? Wow - there are truly some things that should NEVER be made. I "heart" Ravelry. I have found some amazing patterns there. And so many are free! Have a wonderful weekend!!! Theresa

  3. These looks like fun time-wasters! I shall keep these in mind when I get bored! :)

    Have an awesome weekend my friend! :)

  4. Lamebook looks FUNNY!!! :):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):)

  5. Hey, I have a pair of Irregular Choice shoes. I call them my wonder woman shoes cause they have wonder woman colors and little stars. Unfortunately though, I havent worn them... yet.
    *kisses* HH

  6. I love Regretsy :P

    See your Office should have done what our Office did and only ran for 2 seasons. Then The wonderful Mr Gervais & Mr Merchant wrapped it up when it was on a high. Think they did the same with Extras. Leave 'em wanting more.

    Can't think of a fab funny site like you've recommended but always have my fix of postsecret on a sunday ;)

  7. Oh wow, that is a great post, so many fun things to amuse ourselves with, thanks for sharing.

  8. Cool fab five....I am a complete ravelry addict! Ever since you got me hooked on crocheting :)
