Morning links (9/15)

Okay, I finally got one too many comments from people who either couldn’t figure out what “flotsam and jetsam” means (originally a nautically term referring to the debris left after a shipwreck, it’s also used to refer to “odds and ends” in general), or who wondered if I’m just a big Little Mermaid fan (which, by the way, says more about you than it does me). So, I’m going to drop that title for a while and go with something that will hopefully be a little clearer. But, just in case there’s still some uncertainty out there, let me explain:

  • “Morning” = that period of the day between when I wake up and when my coffee has finally kicked in.
  • “Links” = those underlined/colored/highlighted words on the screen that take you places when you click on them.

Now, that we’ve taken care of that business, here are some links for this morning.

  1. For what it’s worth, I liked the original title and would prefer you keep it. Some of us have even used the phrase “flotsam and jetsam” in ordinary conversation.

    • Well that’s good to hear. I am having some second thoughts since I looked at the post and realized the “morning links” is way too bland for me. Thanks for the feedback.

  2. Yeah, I have to vote for the old one. Is morning links referring to breakfast? Sausage sounds good though.

  3. i’m really dissappointed you have bowed to the pressure of the ignorant masses who are too lazy to even google an expression to find out what it means before they bother a human being. they should be ashamed of themselves and so should you!

    (reactionary traditionalist anyone? ;-))

    • I am now crushed under the weight of your disapproval. I will immediately switch back to the old title to prove that I’m not a reactionary. Wait….

  4. Sorry Marc, I commented about the name but also kind of liked it! 🙂

  5. personally i really struggle to know how to name my links round ups, i wish i had thought of doing flotsam and jetsam and giving a date, instead every day i spend hours sweating over the title for each round up post 😦
