Wait, it’s already been a week since we did this? Impossible! It feels like it was just yesterday that I partook in all my regular Tuesday traditions: Regretting all those cheap tacos from Taco Tuesday, undergoing a mixture of deep reflection and soreness from Trampoline Tuesday, and experiencing joy after sharing some of my favorite new Tumblrs from Tumblr Tuesday.

Best of Wikipedia Let’s face it: Wikipedia is awesome. With over 10-zillion articles on everything from Paula Abdul to Zip Codes, it’s clearly the place to start your research on any topic.
