Dancing Kids, Crossword and Grammar Blogs, Fashion Spectrum and a High School News Update

Best political video EVER.  No matter who you support in this election.  (Thanks Alex MD!)

The NYT started a crossword puzzle blog!  (Warning: only visit after you complete the day’s puzzle.  Unless you need hints…)

The Baltimore Sun has a grammar blog!  (Thanks Katy!)

Apparently our hearts beat to the Bee Gee’s “Stayin’ Alive.” Yes, that’s 103 beats per minute.

Fashion blog on Michelle Obama.  Lady loves J. Crew.  So do I.  (Thanks Katie!)

On the other side of the fashion spectrum: Hello Kitty wedding dresses. (Thanks Lauren!)

Condo escape clause for New York City liberals. (I mean, unreal-Americans.)

Listen to all of this election’s robo calls here.

My high school did not suffer from a modesty problem.  I nominated R. Kelly’s “World’s Greatest” as our class song way back in 2002.  Sadly, it did not win, but I thought it would be fitting for a group of kids with healthy egos and even healthier closets.  (Whether or not you’re in it, Mr. Kelly).  Nevertheless, my fair alma mater has been making the rounds recently.  From the two men in my office who are married to ladies from Bethesda (I work on the Upper West Side, so this is notable) to the kid from the grade above me who walked past me last Friday in downtown Manhattan. (We both stared at each other for a bit and then moved on.  It was odd.)

But then Tanno sent me this which includes a lyric about my high school.  I’m glad that in the great Bankers verus Consultants debate, the best dis is that you went to my high school.

Also, this article in the WaPo writes all about the teenage political activists from our school (and other MoCo schools) involved in the campaign.  I’m pretty sure that that kid in the Redskins gear graduated with us too.

Also, in news-from-middle-school: Dan Dan the Weather Man is a regular on Mix 107.3 now from 6 am to 10 am on Sundays!

Also, some other graduate from our high school wrote this.

NASCAR in NYC, Oompa Loompas in Velour Sweat Suits, and Opie on the Election Video Friday

    A crossword is good, but don’t say no to anagrams. And do not say nay per nuns.
