All of mine are funny sites (webcomics, punditkitchen, etc) or blogs and stuff...

B is blairbash, which is kind of school-specific (and a bit lame) but entertaining nonetheless...

Lots of quotes from teachers, including Schafer

4 of those sites dan posted were me trawling for wedding dresses, otherwise the rest of them probably are the ones I visit the most, though Dan was upset that my vacation hunting out ranked his favourite car site the VW Vortex!
