Smart People are SO COOL.
Especially when they demo their ideas in such a mellow, low-key way.

Many thanks to my good friend Sally for this one.

A friend (who knew me well offline and not on) once assumed I would be averse to emoticons. I could see why, but for some reason, this is not the case. I find a well-placed emoticon rather comforting, especially in online chat.
I am also almost inexplicably delighted by this.

It's an Honor Just to be Nominated, Right?
::Snort:: - a comment of mine was chosen by Josh as a runner-up to funniest comment of the week over on Comics Curmudgeon.
In all honesty, I think it was the first time I've ever commented on CC. I do love Josh, though. Nobody else can make me think, "Oh - I wonder what he'll have to say about today's 'Mary Worth.'" (Granted, nobody else has even tried...)

Happy (or at least Funny) Holidays to You
I'm going on blog-vacation (I know - how can you tell?), but I leave you with this - a comedian (and former cellist)'s rant about Pachelbel:

Oh, Lord - the Time that Can be Wasted on the Internet
I'm loving the "ho ho ho" easter eggs in flickr.
(Full set here: since they're deployed via photo notes, hats and beards can only be viewed at the actual, individual photo pages).

Very Important Viewing for Consumers of Sushi
The Japanese Tradition:
A test will be administered at a later date. I can't tell you what will be on it, but pay particular attention to: imparting information as to the number of people in your party, what to say when pouring a beer (or having one poured for you), and how much soy sauce to apply.

Our Ancestors Could Have Picked a Sunnier Place to Live
I promise I'll write up the end of last week's travelogue soon (if anyone is really interested), but in the interim, enjoy the Helsinki Complaints Choir:

Speechless, Just Speechless
I've heard a brief precis of the mega-yarn-klepto stories, but this is the in-depth version.
Ummmm. Wow. Brings all new meaning to S.A.B.L.E.

La Breadchick, Columniste du Cuisine
My buddy Breadchick has decided to take pity on those of us who sometimes find "yeast beasts" (as she calls them) and other culinary issues baffling, and is open for business, answering your questions. Her initial "Ask Breadchick" column addressed my vexing biga issues.
Ask Breadchick, Oracle of Yeast!

Won't You Please Think of the Children?
The Onion prints some wisdom from the SUV set:
"If we do not join together and do what's best for this, our only planet, there may not be an environment left in which my five children, and their 25 children's 125 children, can grow up and raise large upper-middle-class families of their own."

If Gatorade Tastes Good, You're Dehydrated.
I've had heat exhaustion. It's not fun. What it progresses to is even less fun.
Keep yourselves safe, all.

"Will You STOP Sawing the Table?!"
Well, blow my lips off! My all time favorite animation, The Big Snit is now available online. I guess I can die happy now.
