... led to the Ear Worm of the Day:
Heart attack on a plate -- it's what's for breakfast. Just add a side of bacon. You can never have too much.
I love beautiful things, and I especially love giving hand-crafted gifts. I stumbled across two new (to me) sources of gorgeous stuff:
Try Handmade shows not just jewelry and soft goods, but some really cool stuff like this Great Bowl O' Fire. Wouldn't that look great on your back deck?
And with Valentine's Day coming, you've simply got to check out Art Fire. They have everything from pretty and inexpensive to some pretty luxe stuff... like this, for example. Scrumptious.
It's a good thing I haven't taken the new television home yet (yes, I finally broke down and bought one. Now I just need to haul it home from the office) -- I'd have put my foot right through it in the last couple of days.
I hate smug, self-righteous asshats... and there are a ton of 'em in the news these days.
Speaking of which... Blago vents his spleen to the media and Drew Peterson has to have his retaliatory time in the spotlight.
Tainting the jury pool, one tasteless act after another.
See? I told you so! That's my story and I'm sticking to it.
Blogthings of the Day:
You Are FAQ
For you, the internet is like your personal library. And you know more facts than fifty normal humans.
Your brain is basically lot a computer at this point. You have a lot of information stored up there.
You spend hours looking up obscure information and learning things. If you have question, you always Google it.
You can't help but be a bit of a know-it-all. You can answer everyone's frequently asked questions.
You Are a Field Goal
You work extremely well under pressure. In fact, pressure makes you do better.
When everyone is counting on you, you can be depended on best. You are very levelheaded.
It's likely that people rely on you to get them out of sticky situations. You are often a last resort.
And you're happy to rise to the occasion. You love being the hero.
Once again the folks at Amazon.com and George R.R. Martin toy with my emotions. Since I see nothing in George's Livejournal stating that the book will be out in September, I'll believe it when I see it. But, cripes! I've been waiting such a long time.
