Cute Things:

tweenbots (thanks, Doug!)

Peeps show year three

Snarky Things:

Awesome Times review of Hannah Montana: The Movie.  Because anything in the NYT that starts with “omg ashley,” is worth reading.

I read this review of new miniseries “Harper’s Island” to the girl sitting next to me on the train and, later, to my parents on the phone.  It’s just that good.

“Seven years earlier, six people were murdered on the island by some rampaging nut case who may or may not be dead. I’m not positive, but I’m pretty sure that the fall 2003 issue of Martha Stewart Weddings specifically stipulates: ‘When choosing the ideal destination for your dream day, be sure to avoid any place that might have been the sight of an infamous serial killing. You don’t want a downer buzz.’ But whatever; that issue is probably out of print.”

(There are other excellent parts, so please click the link for far more entertainment than the television program will provide.)

Need to buy me a present?  I love these and would enjoy making one.  (Thanks, Carroll Kim!)

I’ve been meaning to post this for a while, but the WaPo wrote an article about how ridiculously wrong the DC scenes are in “24.” (Thanks, Dad!)

Other Things:

Watch this lady sing.  It’s all over the internets now, so I’m probably too late.

Semitrailer of beer crashes near where the hot dogs spilled last week.  Couldn’t they have timed things a little better so we can have a barbecue? (Thanks to John for both links.)  And when you think of beer and hot dogs, what goes with both?  BASEBALL!

Books about baseball from Flashlight Worthy Books.  Dad, I think I’ve bought you most of those for assorted Hanukkahs and birthdays.  Except for George Will’s, natch.

More on baseball: The Toilet Ratio.

More on toilets: Where to Pee in NYC. (Thanks, Dad!)

Crimes caught by Google Street View. (Including people who couldn’t find toilets…)

Use Facebook a lot?  You’d probably have a lower GPA if you were still in school.  (There is a lot wrong with this study but it’s also brought to you by Captain Obvious.)

Darwin winner of the day: Woman calls 911 to say “Help!  I’m locked in my car.

Hey, Dick Cheney, we’re so over you.

All Is Not Lost For the Class of 2009.  Interesting quote from the article:

“Write: ‘I’m looking for a job in D.C. in public policy.  Anyone got any ideas?  Leads?  Advice?’

This girl!  Right here!  That’s me!

Krugman’s op-ed doesn’t even have to mention the real meaning of “tea bagging” to prove that Republicans should be embarrassed.  (Special note to parental units and others who are unaware of the true meaning: Don’t Google it or ask me, please.)

Disney’s research into the minds of boys.  Please share your knowledge (on those a bit older)!

It’s hard to write romantic stories because people have cell phones.

Twitter: Not useless.
