WebFinds: YourUnemployedDaughter

I love Your Unemployed Daughter for a number of reasons, not the least of them being that she never fails to make me laugh out loud at work, most often when the Executive Director is coming around the corner and I have to explain why I am giggling in an otherwise empty room. YUD is a media professional, a young woman and a friend-of-a-friend, so I feel an odd closeness to her. I bet her twitter follows @APStylebook, too.

But one recent post was especially dear to my hear – inspired by a meatball assault!


Web find: Bacon du Jour

There are some days when you smack your forehead and say “Why didn’t I think of that?!?”  Click here to check out Bacon Du Jour and see if this is one of those days. It’s the latest project by one member of the Association for Women Journalists Chicago Chapter.


The concept is simple: every day they wrap something in bacon to see if it  tastes better that way. They take a photo and then  rate it using a bacon pun.


I was sad that the bacon-wrapped Peep didn’t work so well,  and  kind of grossed out by the bacon-wrapped pickle, and still other pairings have been inspired in a college dorm food sort of way.  But the site never fails to fascinate me in a way that makes people walking past my office wonder why I am making that face.  That must mean it’s a good site.
