Dear Faithful Readers,
I haven’t posted in some time now because I haven’t been looking forward to writing this post. For professional reasons, I’m no longer going to be able to write this blog. I know; it stinks, but somehow, I’m sure you’ll be okay. I believe that most of you reading this are personal acquaintances, so I’ll see you in the real world. To those of you whom I’ve never met, thanks for reading, good night and good luck!
P.S. Here are some last links that I couldn’t resist sharing:
In other ‘Sesame Street’ News, here’s Desperate Houseplants.
In non-animal news:
Everything in this is SO TRUE and I demand that you all follow these rules accordingly. (Thanks, Valerie!)

Stay tuned for my epic battle to count every t-shirt in my wardrobe. This might take a while.

Now that I’ve moved home and found that I have saved absolutely everything, I’ve decided to sell some of the junk great stuff taking up room in my house. If you’re interested in either of these great package deals, please, let me know in the comments. TMN readers get a special price and home delivery, where applicable. As the weeks of my unemployment wear on, stay tuned for more exciting shopping opportunities.

This is old, but Terrapins are not just dangerous on the football field.
Store review! Marni, on E 67th Street. Describing the clothing:
“If Jackie Chan was in a screwball fight sequence that took place in a wealthy retirement community and he jumped down a Salvation Army donation chute, this is the stuff he would fly out wearing. It’s senile-fabulous: sporty, loud, intentionally clashing and slightly clownish. Much of it can and should be accessorized with white golf shoes and a Phyllis Diller wig.”
Coffee cups in NYC. (Mom and Dad, you’ll enjoy this one.)
A store review for a store where I’ve actually shopped! Here’s a lovely quote from the review:
“If you were to secretly dose the celebrated Japanese artist Takashi Murakami with LSD, spin him around in a swivel chair, bounce him on a trampoline, then repeatedly hit him over the head with a piñata, the interior of this store would be his hallucination.”
To shock no one, this story on ‘energy shots’ focuses on College Park, Maryland.

Dear New York Times, Do not piss off us puzzle-doers. We are very powerful and subscribe to newspapers to do our puzzles on real paper. Also, do not let the Wall Street Journal beat you to the story. Love, Puzzle-Doers.
