The website

Dear reader,

I have a favor to ask. I’ve been tinkering with my website since 2008 and I think it may be time for a little refresher. I say this with complete honesty: I’d love your input.

Those of you reading right now are special. You don’t just come to IHGB for Bachelor franchise recaps. I like to think you come here because you enjoy reading beyond my tantalizing descriptions of what I imagine Our Host Chris Harrison smells like at rose ceremonies. I imagine you come here to read about my crazy East Texas upbringing, my eclectic Mama, favorite TV shows, movies, music and random musings.

I am so lucky to have you as a reader. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.

With that said, I’d love to hear from you. Please tell me things you want to see on the website. Or what you are tired of seeing on the website. You can include actual posts, or let me know your “wish list” of mechanical pieces of IHGB. Do you wish there was a search option? Do you wish I didn’t talk so much about my love of Friends? Is my comment section totally annoying? Do my banners need to be refreshed? Do you read on your phone and is it easy or hard to maneuver? Would you like to see guest posts? Would you like to see more posts? (I know I would…) Would you like to see certain days representing certain post categories?

Feel free to let me know in the comment section. Or you can email me directly. I only ask one thing: if you have a con, please leave a pro as well!

I value your input and promise to read each and every comment and email. Thanks for taking the time to write back. I’ve told so many people this and I stand by my words…my readers are the best.

Your humble blogger,
Lincee

Slink's Links

TGIF, am I right people? I hope you have an amazing weekend. Here are some links to get you through the home stretch!

I think I’m the only person watching Manhattan Love Story. And that makes me sad, because I actually do like it. Rumor has it that it’s going to get the ax along with Selfie. We shall see. In the meantime, I’d love if you clicked on THIS LINK to read my recap!

Remember that time discovering Shazam changed your life? Here are 25 other apps for the organizer and computer nerd in you that may have the same impact.

People Magazine is 40-years-old. Of course you want to flip through a digital scrapbook of their previous covers, don’t you? Your wish is my command!

This article depicting the breakfast foods that kids eat from around the world was so interesting to me. Especially the breakfast choices in Africa. PS: I wish the kid in Amsterdam could share her breakfast with me and the kid from Malawi.

Aaaannnnnnnnnnnddddd I’ve found my Halloween costume. Does anyone have a large sheet of cardboard I can borrow?

The one where ‘Friends’ debuts on Netflix

Friends

This is not a joke people. Every single episode of Friends is going to be available on Netflix beginning January 1, 2015. Even though I own all the seasons on DVD and VHS, I will have the power to watch one of my all-time favorite shows with just the click of a few buttons. Who doesn’t get excited when they see this?

Friends opener

or this:

Friends + my eyes

and this classic:

Ross

But my all-time favorite will always be “The One with the Embryos”

Tell me I’m right. Or tell me another episode that trumps this one and I’ll tell you if you’re right. I may be able to concede the prom video episode if I’m feeling particularly generous.

Regardless, this news is WONDERFUL and deserves a happy dance!

Welcome to the jungle

I had no idea so many people dreamed about working at Disney World!

Kelli was nice enough to ask me in the comment section if I would send a Jungle Cruise Skipper picture from back in the day. I’m happy to oblige.

I’m also happy to tell you that this is my friend Jill in the Jungle Cruiser with me. She was the one who took me to my Disney interview. The week before, I had blown out my knee and I couldn’t drive. On the way to campus, I convinced Jill to interview too. She did and she landed the Jungle Cruise. I was originally cast in Fantasy Land and thought I would lose my mind if I asked one more family, “How many? Row two. How many? Row three. How many???!!!”

Jill worked her magic and I was in the jungle a matter of weeks after arriving in Fantasy Hell Land.

Thank you Jill. Even though you are terribly monochromatic in that uniform, you are still hot.
