Monthly Archives: October 2007
Exhumed from my blog archives to keep you happy between visitations of little ghouls and zombies:
- Haunted Travels
- Make a funny face
- Watch movies at Pixar (Needs Quicktime and preferably broadband to view at a normal size.)
- The ever amusing, slightly insane Dave Barry
- Superstitions.com – everything from stepping on a crack and breaking your mother’s back to black cats.
- Trick or Treat brought to you by Hershey’s chocolate
- Ben & Jerry’s – a trip to the Flavor Graveyard is a must! Scream Savers too!
- Anita’s Origami – All her origami is amazing, and the Halloween ones are unique. (The paper! The paper! The paper!)
- Halloween Stuff from HP – everything from trick-or-treat bags to T-shirts. Lots of cute ideas.
- The Toy Maker – Vintage style paper crafts
- And lastly, Carve a Virtual Pumpkin requires the Flash Plug-in, but alas, no pumpkin seeds to roast. (My mouth just started to water. Israeli “white seeds” just don’t cut it. Frequently over bandwidth, but keep trying.)
To all those that do, hope your Halloween is a ghast!
So far I’ve written a synopsis of the WordCamp2007Israel event and how Lorelle is helping me to be a better blogger. Now I’d like to talk about my perceptions of the event.
For a first outing, WordCampIsrael was fantastically organized. Even though there were not a few rough spots, the people behind it deserve kudos for pulling it off, especially since I understand the event was put together in a relatively short period of time.
Lorelle‘s two presentations were for me the highlight of the conference and the reason I slogged through the entire 10-hour day from beginning to end. Lorelle is an energetic and enthusiastic speaker and even if you didn’t agree with everything she said or thought you couldn’t apply what she said to your own blog, you couldn’t help but be supercharged with her energy (and finding out that she’s also a fan of Terry Pratchett’s Discworld didn’t hurt either).
