Good good links #13

Hi there and happy Sunday!

Maybe it’s a little weird to say it now that I’ve been doing these kind of posts for weeks already. But I just have to: writing the titles of whichever post I’m sharing just the way the author did irks me at times. Why? Well, I already told you I’m a language and grammar nerd and starting every word with a capital letter looks so … wrong. I’m curious how you feel about this so let me know in the comments!

    I always keep the letters in titles capitalized…it looks weird to me if their NOT! Haha!

    Love the links! I just about DIED laughing over the hangry one! That’s totally me on all accounts! And holy Moses! Did you see those pumpkin pie roasted chickpeas?! YUM! Now I need to go play
    catch up with our favorite Swiss chick! Happy Sunday (on a Saturday night in America), love! Oh and ps, glad your tooth is feeling better! 🙂

      I figured it’s an Amerian versus German thing. We don’t usually write every word in a title capitalized but usually just nouns.
      Yeees, I did see them but I quickly clicked away because – sorry, not trying to repeat myself or sound whiney – we can’t get pumpkin butter over here. Sigh.
      Happy Sunday!

    Thanks for highlighting my dessert! It was mighty tasty 🙂
    Such great picks here. So much to read but just popped over to the link about the decline of cereal. How sad! Admittedly I never eat cereal these days but it was all I ate for breakfast as a kid.

    • Miss Polkadot says:

      Ooh, I believe it was! Too bad it was a virtual potluck only or I might have invited myself over ;).
      It’s the same for me with cereal. A breakfast hit as a child but now I can’t remember the last time I had any but always assumed the demand was still high.

    • Miss Polkadot says:

      Oh the patience [and jelly beans] … But how about starting with the Melon Shark to feed your addiction once they’re in season again ;)?! Though it says it was a great way to encourage [children] to eat [even] more fruit …
