Things You’ve Already Seen on the Internet

Kelly Hildebrandt to wed Kelly Hildebrandt.

Palin’s resignation speech, edited by Vanity Fair.

The world’s most crowded swimming pool?

From this week’s news:

Politicians in NYC must speak Yiddish.

This guy is running for his father’s seat in an effort to eliminate the position

Another reason to love Target.

This guy is awesome.  Just look at his picture:

Happy Belated Bastille Day

Umpires v. Judges.

Coffee cups in NYC. (Mom and Dad, you’ll enjoy this one.)

Frank Rich on Sarah Palin.

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.

A look back on a decade of SpongeBob SquarePants.

Monkeys can recognize poor grammar! (Thanks, Lauren!)

NPR on tourists.

Newspapers cutting out crossword puzzles?!?!  Sad face! (This has been all over my twitter feed, but I did read it first in the Times, so I am not going to attribute it to anyone.  Sorry.)

The “Real World” DC crew looks VERY young.  Does this mean I’m old?

We’re so classy that we go to an art museum one day, and a few weeks later, Bergdorf uses its art in its windows.

I went to this game with my parents, and I think you should all read about the crowd cheering “We want the apple!”

Fun News Stories for a Friday Afternoon

A review of the Simpsons stamps that I am a huge fan of, too.

This woman is awesome.

Excellent op-ed on Palin sent to me by the lovely Alex Sullivan.

Drunk Badger Disrupts Traffic in Germany.

Augustus Gloop!

This creepy/cool Evian commercial with roller skating babies only makes me think of one thing.

Creepiest vintage ads of all time. (Thanks Tori Ball!)

Mad Men/Banana Republic advertising partnership!

No Tuesday Times Update…

…Because someone stole my newspaper.  Grrr.

In other news…(Mostly via Jezebel)

Richard Nixon saw interracial pregnancy as grounds for abortion.

Obviously, the girl with 56 face tattoos asked for them and lied when her dad freaked out.

NPR asks for more movies about renegade toys.

Iceland argues that commercial whaling can coexist with whale watching.  Erm, as long as we’re not watching the whales getting slaughtered?

American Apparel introduces shiny kids’ leggings.  Ew.

Yay!  A bad review of the Armani restaurant in The New Yorker.  Fashion restaurants seem to be a bad idea to me even if they’re good (unless they’re in real department stores…).

AARP has a spelling bee!

From Lauren: The 10 Dumbest Moments in “Wheel of Fortune” History.  (I disagree with their rankings.)

You’d Think Being Unemployed Would Mean I’d Have MORE Time To Blog…

No, actually I’ve been sitting outside everyday reading the newspaper and also applying to lots of jobs when I’m inside.  Therefore, I’m neglecting my internet activities, which means I’m not blogging.  Sorry.

Read about the Tuskegee Airmen in the last hour of Memorial Day.

R.I.P. Del. Pauline Menes.  She was a great lady.

New Ghostbusters III movie with original cast!!

Ironic t-shirt sales.

This month’s New Yorker cover was painted with an iPhone!

I went to Iceland.  Here are my photos.

A new JEWISH American Girl Doll!  (Mom, will you buy me it for me??) Thanks, Valerie!

How did Lauren beat me to this link about beers in New Jersey from NPR?

In other beer related news, Dad sent me this link to an article about craft beers.

Thursday’s NYT obits: the top of the page was about a leading expert in yoga and the bottom covered a pioneer of yogurt.  Yoga!  Yogurt!

Tim Gunn in a comic book!!

I’m a Navigator

One of my cool friends had this on her blog and I got the link, but then forgot who had shared…

It’s fun and hopefully true!  My travel bug evaluation is that I’m a Navigator:

“You’re logical, practical, realistic, not annoying, thorough, dependable, and an outstanding babysitter.

Your travel bug effects: aversion to confined spaces, deep contented sighs, and an obsession with accruing miles.”

How do you compare?  (In related news, Dad, I’ve told you we should stay in a hostel next time we go abroad as a family.  Read that article, and maybe you’ll agree!)

A photo I took made EngrishFunny!  Brian got that fortune at the Chinese buffet we went to in Florida.  We laughed for about 20 minutes.

Lauren had so many great links on her blog Friday, I have to share so you can read all of them. (Mom, you’ll especially like the animal pictures.)

This weekend’s “Wait Wait…Don’t Tell Me” was hilarious as usual, but the Not My Job with Paula Deen was epic.

Okay now to real news from the real life newspaper that people like me (and the Columbia School of Journalism) read:

Frank Rich rules.

“WHAT would happen if you crossed that creepy 1960s horror classic “The Village of the Damned” with the Broadway staple ‘A Chorus Line’? You don’t need to use your imagination. It’s there waiting for you on YouTube under the title ‘Gathering Storm’: a 60-second ad presenting homosexuality as a national threat second only to terrorism.”

I watched this show, and thought it stunk, even though it’s written by the creator of one of my favorite shows, has the voice of one of my favorite actresses and is drawn by one of my favorite illustrators.

This article is about teens in Langley Park, Maryland, which means it should have probably run in the WaPo and not the NYT.

Today’s Metropolitan Diary was enjoyable.  The last story almost made me cry and then made me laugh.

The man who picks the ten letters that President Barack Obama reads every day.

I liked this editorial cartoon, and I had to search long and hard to find it, so please click the link!

Interesting that this article ran today, because I saw The Little Mermaid on Broadway this Saturday, and I’m guessing there were fewer than a dozen locals in the entire theater, including myself.  At least three-quarters of the audience was wearing jeans, and when I asked the girl in front of me where her group was from, she said “Farmland,” implying that I should know where the hell Farmland is located.  (It’s in Indiana, FYI, and I actually had the nerve to tell the poor girl that no one in New York actually knows of Farmland.)

And now for some Jewish fun…

Passover is over, more bagels are sold, natch.

Jets upset with game on Jewish holiday.

Emibly Krumlov for WNYC

Great bad review courtesy of Valerie!  (There’s a great fight, too!)

What is your NPR name?  I’m Emibly Krumlov.

I saw this great digital photography art yesterday somewhere, forgot where, and then Matt sent it to me again, so he earns props.

Someone give this girl a scholarship to study violin in college!

How long until the Duggar family is more populous than Vermont?

Monday’s NYT crossword puzzle had the clue “Widespread Internet prank involving a bait-and0switch link to a music video”

Yes folks, that would be RICKROLLING.  Well done, Natan Last.  Well done.

Kosher for Passover Chinese food!  I love the name of the restaurant: Cho-Sen.

All those tea parties yesterday reminded me of this.

Glow-in-the-dark cat.  (Thanks, Phylan!)

Family members on Facebook.

There’s a new way to boil eggs.  I tried it, and the yolks actually turn out yellow.

This lady should be remembered for all of her great work.

Ugh, guns.  Bob Herbert = great.

How the mayor knows who’s not a killer.
