Isabella Mata’s finely tuned Trending Trendometer didn’t need much tuning to register that Pokemon GO was the diversion hotness this past week. So in that spirit, FreakyDoll cross-calibrated the Digression Detector with her Amusement Alert System and rounded up ten interesting and capricious links. She headlines with the importance of staring out the window (without searching for rascally Raticates or elusive Emboars, by the way!), and follows up with Harry Connick, instructions on building a Star Wars Speeder Bike rocking horse, and several refreshing, relaxing reads – like hammock camping. She even sneaked in a Pokemon meme. And for out-of-this-world fun, listen to General Grievous sing “I Am A Modern Major General”.
Go ahead – be diverted. Recharge your batteries. You’ll be glad you did.
