Links

These are links to sites that I find fascinating, fun, amazing, strange,  otherwise worthy of mention.

For lots of wonderful word fun, go to

http://dictionary.reference.com/

and solve crossword puzzles, do anagrams, or explore wonderful lists of interesting words.


For those nostalgia buffs looking for, among others, Pacman, Simon, Pong, Space Invaders, Donkey Kong, and my two favorites, Tetris and Frogger, go to

http://www.flashgamesplayer.com/

Best of all, they’re all free.


For more modern games, go to

http://www.popcap.com

You can play on-line, or pay to play more elaborate versions off-line.

For a fascinating look at the popularity of various names through the ages, go to

http://babynamewizard.com/namevoyager/lnv0105.html

Wait for it to load, then fill in your name, or your favorite name, or your dad’s name, or a name you might give your baby. Or just move your cursor over the waves and see what you find.

If you have a dream that sticks with you, go to

http://www.dreammoods.com/dreamdictionary/

and find out what it’s all about. I find it a wonderful site to start thinking about the elements of a dream; less good when it uses your dream to predict the future. Here’s another wonderful dream site, thanks to Irit:

If, God forbid, you have to phone a giant corporation and would like to save time and get a live person on the phone, go to

http://ewww.gethuman.com/

and find the name of the company. The site does a pretty good job of keeping things up to date.

If you have some free time and you’re feeling creative, go to

http://www.mrpicassohead.com

Click on Play to create your own work of art. Go to the gallery and search under e.molin (NOTE: no space after period) to find one of mine.

For those who not only like books but like to keep them, on this site you can catalogue your own library:

http://www.librarything.com/

If you have lots of books, you eventually have to pay to add.

This is very beautiful and relaxing to watch:
