The Best WordPress Related Websites On the Internet –  If I’m not following them in Google Reader, I want to add them.

10 Cool jQuery Flyout Menu Plugins –  Because I always seem to need one that does something just slightly different.

Hopefully I can get to these this weekend….though I’m seriously thinking about taking a no-tech weekend.
