Digital Dozen – more midweek distractions for your tired brain
I don’t understand how it’s already Wednesday, but also, how is is only Wednesday? Hump day, you vex me. Onto the fun stuff!
First of all, I’ve been watching and rewatching and sharing this everywhere, but it needs to take first mention here. Magic dogs. I love it.
Animal problems. They’re real, and they’re adorably illustrated by Geoff Hewer-Candee over at this Tumblr.
Let’s talk about some REAL distractions, like the incredible archive of MS DOS games now available on the Internet Archive! There’s a little about the process behind it here. There are so many to play, right in your browser! Have you any idea how awesome that is? Especially for me to relive all those hours of..
Interspecies friends always make me happy. This squirrel is so persistent, and the dog is so patient! Although I imagine it’s nice to have someone combing around in your fur 🙂 There’s a load more videos here!
