Upcycle Your Old Floppy Diskettes into Even Older Technology…a Notepad

If you used a computer in the ’90s, chances are you used floppy disks to store your files at some point. I recently came across four mystery diskettes and after getting the files off them (which took a trip to the archival team at the University of Texas at Austin Library–ha!) I wasn’t sure what to do with the disks. Were they recyclable? Turns out they were, in and in […]

Things That Make Me Happy: Panning for Gold on the NYC Streets

This video makes me want to get out there and pan myself! Which is bat-guano level crazy, most likely. But what an interesting story! A big thanks to my main squeeze, Nick, for sharing. Good luck with the gold rush, XXOO Sassy G.

What Facebook Thinks of Google+…

Mysteriously, I couldn’t post Google+ to my Facebook wall the day I read the announcement. Coincidence? Only the Wall knows…

Just for Fun Friday: Like a Blog

My friends Kris and Jason put this together, based on the SNL bit that Andy Sandberg did (Like a Boss). I think this is actually much funnier than the original, mostly because I thought the first one was just plain gross. How gross was it? Well, enough for me to not link to it. Just trust me, this one is funnier. And, here’s hoping that you don’t finish this song […]

Super Bowl, Wes Anderson Edition

Slate asks a simple but fun question: what if major filmmakers could “direct” the Super Bowl? Enjoy the bloodbath, as “envisioned” by a faux Taratino, Lynch, a spot-on Anderson, Godard and (my favorite) Herzog. Also, GO STILLERS!!! Ahem.

Sweet Music for the New Biz

I’ve decided that I need a music playlist for the hours, days and months I’ll be pouring into my new business and to double as fun background music for events I’m at. (My booth will be rocking!)What I’m looking for are songs that have the words “sugar” or “sweet” in them (honey won’t cut it, but other words might), preferably as a key part of the song or as the […]

Couched in Historical Terms?

This post otherwise entitled, “Did we make the best yard saling find we’ve made in our lives? Or are we going to slowly descend into a spiral of depression, all from a blue sofa?” Obviously, take this post with a boulder of salt, as Nick and I need to keep reminding ourselves. But we are absolutely giddy at having scored, in our minds, possibly the ultimate yard saling find ever, […]

Redheads Always Notice One Another and Other Ginger Truths

I am not sure if me writing about the actual state of being a redhead is tiresome to my readers, so if you are bored by the topic of a rare hair color, this post probably isn’t for you. (Though, frankly, you shouldn’t be surprised when a blog titled “SassyGinger” goes there!) If, however, you have red hair…or love someone with red hair (be they a partner or family member) […]

Online “Listening” Tools for Bloggers and Other Online Snoops

Here is a cyber-detective crash course for people who want to track others online. Okay, that sounds more nefarious than I intended. But, maybe you are a blogger who hasn’t, um, updated your blog in a while (cough, cough) and you wonder what sort of topics will draw the most interest from readers in the big TwentyTen. Or you sent an e-mail to your boss and wonder if she ever […]
