Sunday Social and Sunday Funnies 6/10

This week, I'm trying something new.  I know.  Change is hard.  But I'm going to hit up the Sunday Social happening at A Complete Waste of Make-Up and Ashley's Carnival Ride.  I love finding new blogs to stalk.  Don't you?  Link on up!

Sunday Social

 This week's Sunday Social questions...
How did you come up with your blog name?
I swiped it from The Office.  Kelly has a sign in her annexed office that says "Kelly's Nook".  Since my name starts with a "K" too, I took the "nook" part and added a silent "k".  

What is your favorite thing about blogging?
The connections I've made.  I love talking to other bloggers!  I hope, once I get outta this icebox, I can meet some bloggers IRL.  We're headed to the midwest next folks, so watch out.  

What is one thing you have discovered because of blogging and now can't live without?

I've learned that I'm addicted to trying new recipes.  The more I see, the more I want to create in the kitchen.  I try something new several times a week.  Also?   Pinterest.  

Facebook or Twitter? and why?

Well, right now I don't have Twitter, so I must say Facebook.  I specifically keep it around for daily amusement.

Facebook was a godsend when we first moved to Alaska, and it's the only way I can keep up with people in Pennsylvania.  Facebook makes it possible to know what is going on within several social circles without actually talking to anyone. 
I'm looking to break into the Twitter-sphere soon, though. 

If one celeb read your blog who would you want it to be?

Kate.  Middleton.

What is something you want people to know about your blog?

My About Me probably says it best.  I love finding new friends in the blogging community.  I try not to take things too seriously and I'm not afraid to make fun of myself.  I also love to make fun of Alaska.  It keeps me busy.  There's a lot to make fun of.  Here's an example of my work
And now.  Onto the funny stuff.

Let's just say that this week my productivity was at an all-time low because I discovered quickmeme.com.

Also?  Let's just say that I am the Socially Awkward Penguin(Well, he's a boy.  But you get it...)
I've had this problem my entire life.

We must make fun of KStew at least once a week here at Kristin's kNook.

It's gonna happen.  Sooner or later. 
 And this is Annoying Facebook Girl...
A.K.A.  The reason for the "hide" feature on FB
As for tonight's t.v. viewing...

If you're a regular follower of my blog, you're probably wondering what I'm going to do.
It's the season finale of Mad Men.  And the season premiere of True Blood.  Oh t.v. gods...what did I ever do to you??
Thank the Lord for DVR.  Seriously.



  1. I keep Facebook just to stay connected with people back home that I don't talk to every day...and those that I don't talk to at all. I like the meaning behind your blog name! These funnies are HILARIOUS!

  2. i meant to ask you before - where in the midwest are you moving to?? hope you're enjoying your weekend!!

  3. I love your Sunday post, always funny. You must join twitter. It's the place I hide from people I don't want to talk to on FB.

  4. I totally have that thing with the memory too. Sometimes i remember things in such detail that I fear if people know how much I really remember it will seem creepy so I pretend i don't remember. LOL ohh man i thought i was the only one!

  5. i'm so excited you are on twitter now. Hooray!! I'm also so stinkin excited for mad men finale. I need to give true blood a whirl. Ryan isn't on board with vamps, but we know so many people who love it, so I think I can eventually convince him.

  6. Dangit! I meant to get in on the Sunday Social action! Oh well... gives me something to look forward to next week! :)

    Love the funnies - particularly the KStew one. :)


Comments make my day!
