Add to favorites?

I spend a fair bit of time at four different computers: the one at home, the one on my desk at work, the one at Tanya's desk (I cover the front desk at 10:00, 12:00, 3:00, and 4:30), and the one at David's. And over time I've created favorites lists at each of those computers. Each one has some items the others don't and they all have some items in common. So here's what I've bookmarked on Tanya's computer, which is where I spend the most Google time:

1. The Agincourt Carole - "Henry V" writ small. With handy music. http://sniff.numachi.com/~rickheit/dtrad/pages/tiAGINCRT2;ttAGINCRT1.html

(At some point David will remind me how to turn words into hyperlinks for a more polished blogging experience. And I'll pay more attention this time. Really and truly.)

2. The beautiful grace of a mundane day - Shauna's world. http://writingmyheartout.blogspot.com/

3. The blogger dashboard! God forbid I think of something to blog and not be .0005 seconds from the dashboard. It's bookmarked on all four computers, I think.

4. Daily Epiphany - Bill Chance's Online Journal. http://www.dailyepiphany.net/current.html Until I started blogging I think I only read David's. Now I'm hooked on a bunch of them.

5. Dooce. Heather Armstrong had a baby about 18 months ago and named her Leta. How can I not read that one? Heather is the most profane, obscene, take-no-shit Mormon I've ever encountered, which only means that I have not met enough Mormons yet. http://www.dooce.com/

6. Fun with Pinto. Sadly, this one is about to go away. Alleah has made the shift from spunky, theater-and-music-loving teen to .... well... to angry whiner. Her prerogative, absolutely, just not something I'll be reading anymore. Pinto isn't fun anymore. http://pintoisfun.blogspot.com/

7. Google. My most favorite-est website ever. The entire multiverse at one url. http://www.google.com/

8. The Literature Network. It's searchable online literature. How cool is that? Sadly, I've never been able to make the "Sonnet a Day Newsletter" work for me and keep getting this sad, sad message: "Cannot connect to the database at the current time." One day. I know I could just read them myself (my second copy of the Big, Heavy Book of Shakespeare is here at the office, in case of a Shakespeare Emergency. But a Newsletter would be so much more fun. Feel free to send me to sonnets.) http://www.online-literature.com/

9. Machinal and the Snyder-Gray Trial. Thank you, Google! I found this while researching some of the references in The Man Who Came to Dinner and it's too interesting not to keep. And it has lots of cool info about Sophie Treadwell, who wrote Machinal. http://dizzy.library.arizona.edu/branches/spc/treadwell/Machinal.htm

Okay, Tanya's back from lunch and wants her desk back. The rest to follow.
