Welcome to the re-branded Sunday links series, Sunday Snippets! I finally came up with an alliterative word that pleased me. So that was a small success.
Remember that time I wrote about how I take public transportation? This week was a little rough as far as that goes. The trains seemed to be off their schedule, one day I got motion sick from riding backwards, and another I was stuck on a car without working air conditioning at rush hour! Oh, and my unlimited card decided to stop working after having let me IN to the station, so that I couldn’t get out. That was fun.
Sometimes when you are a grownup you get really hot riding MARTA home & and then go eat a Reese's Arctic Swirl from Zesto for dinner.— Laura Lindeman (@lclindeman) June 30, 2014
I drove to work one day and honestly it felt glorious. But then it was a 4-day week and I had a nice Fourth of July and the beat goes on!
Onward to the links.

A twist of vanilla and chocolate, perhaps covered in sprinkles that taste of nothing and stick in your molars, or a plain vanilla cone dipped in a slick of chocolate are among summer’s greatest culinary pleasures.
Dipped cones from Dairy Queen were a staple of my childhood “special time” with my dad, and now I want to procure some soft serve frozen custard!
It’s good to include some cats in a link post.
Each year, around 20 million animals suffer at the hands of bored knitters. It has to stop. RT to raise awareness. pic.twitter.com/7WbLlt8kEN— Mike Clarke (@Mr_Mike_Clarke) July 1, 2014
Scientists at the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration sounded a strong warning about rising seas Monday, saying that ocean levels around the world are projected to increase by 12 inches or more should a bunch of people go swimming at the same time.

In other news from my week, I’m debating a rather expensive rug and the online reviews are divided as far as its quality.
Online reviews are a fickle friend when the 1 and 5 star reviews seem evenly divided and equally valid. What's a girl to do?!— Laura Lindeman (@lclindeman) July 5, 2014
What do you think?
Have a great week, y’all!
