Linky Thursday – 5/15

Use 3M Hooks for Window Blind Cords: Duh! Why didn’t I think of this? For most of the blinds in our house I nailed the included little hook into the window frame to wind the cords. But there are a couple windows where I didn’t want to put the hooks up because I didn’t want something permanent in there, so this would be perfect!

Green: Makeup Brushes: I’m not currently in the market, but this will be my next set of makeup brushes. Bamboo handles, synthetic bristles, and recycled aluminum ferrule.

Slave to Target: This could potentially be me, if I had time to go to Target more often. Awesome blog with Target news and observations.

Cheese!: Um, this link is more for my own benefit – I want to go to this cheese shop! Just because it’s local and the owner went to my alma mater and it looks like they have a nice selection. GG and I love visiting cheese shops. (Okay, I might like them a little more, but I’m a bit more adventurous when it comes to trying cheeses. He’s more of a cheddar guy.)

Word Wise: Spaced Out: Please everybody, stop putting two spaces after a sentence when you’re typing! One of my biggest pet peeves (especially at work, where I have to go through and delete the extra spaces from things people enter in my database).

SomethingStore: Send them $10, they will send you… something. Ooh, mysterious.

    NEVER!!! This is how I was taught in my typewriting class in junior high. And besides, it just looks silly if you don’t.

  2. The doube space thing annoys me to no end. I’m surprised that some people haven’t gotten the memo that this shouldn’t be done. I worked with a stupid lady a while back who actually used three spaces! And the eco friendly brushes look wonderful! I just bought a kabuki brush and found out the bristles are made out of squirrel hair! Gross.

  3. I have to confess–this is the very, very first time that I have ever seen this no two spaces at the end of a sentence rule. I’m very confused and don’t think I could possibly break myself of this very ingrained habit that began in 8th grade typing class. I must investigate further.

  4. Thanks for the link to KTC! As for the 2-space issue, I’ve had to learn not to do that too. I learned to type using a secretary’s handbook, and a manual typewriter.
