Animals Doing People Things = Always Entertaining

Aww: Baby duckling with a sandal to fix its foot.

Georgia cat earns its GED.

In non-animal news:

Rush Limbaugh and Karl Rove to guest star on “Family Guy”

Everything in this is SO TRUE and I demand that you all follow these rules accordingly.  (Thanks, Valerie!)

Hey Mom,  I can build by bone strength with BEER!

Bob Dylan: A Complete Unknown

Mad Men Celebrities!

The lives of the wives of the Nationals.

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

Good Bye Garden State

My newspaper has been stolen from my clutches four times this week.  Out the last five days, some cheapskate has yoinked my paper four times.  Therefore, I do not have any great journalism to share with you today, unfortunately.  The good news is that I am moving out of my apartment this weekend and I doubt those living in my new building will steal my newspaper (since they are my parents).

The Divorce Dance, which has better looking/dancing people. (via Lauren)

50 Most Beautiful People on the Hill: The top 10 and the rest.

If someone figures out a way to get this on a t-shirt for me, I’d be very grateful.  Also, does anyone else get the joke? (Again, Lauren)

Amazing artwork created from old books.

This is pretty cool.

Woo hoo!

Monkeys, Girl Scouts, Camping, Reading, Disney World and Other Summer-Friendly Topics

Once again, Lauren beat me to virtually everything on Friday, but I’m not holding it against her.  I just have to click “Publish” earlier in the day and not wait till Sunday…

In other old news, I guarantee you have all seen this already, but I did find this before it made the news and my mother called me about it: Dancing wedding happiness.

Orangutan and doggie are bffs. (Thanks, Savannah.)

Creationist Girl Scout gets Gold Award.  Lamezors. (Via Jezebel)

The one reason I’m glad I’m not at camp this summer.  In other camp-related news, camping in New York City sounds soooo much fun.  (FYI, Dad, look at the Queens site.)

These real morning anchors sound a lot like the morning anchors on The Onion News Network. (And might be more annoying, too.)

I enjoyed virtually all of the stories in the New York Times’ special Education section and think you will, too.  (FYI, the word “special” is describing the section, not the education.)

The National Symphony will provide live program notes via Twitter!

A slide show of Knickerbocker reminders in New York City.

This list of books that take place in New Jersey would have been a lot more timely when I was moving to the state instead of away from the Garden State.

Lauren found this, but I’m posting it because it’s about EPCOT, and I love EPCOT…Incidentally, who the hell videotapes all of Carousel of Progress?  People who love lame rides?  People who record every second of their family vacation?  Insomniacs?  Marie and I decided to go to it in March, killing time before the fireworks and it was so bad we bailed midway.  (It was also replaying each “room” twice.  Horrible.)  We are such Disney World rebels.

Two things of note here: Wow, that toddler totally is Anna Nicole and please watch the crazy German lady.

Am I perpetuating this by posting this article?

Forgoing our National Mall for pet projects is a travesty.  Come on, Congress, it’s our NATIONAL Mall, fund that shit.

Once again, leaving the most important for the end: An Abortion Battle, Fought to the Death.  Please read this article in its entirety.

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!!

Wherein I Provide Two Links and Then Just Brag

Jason Jones on Arizona State University.

Awkward Family Photos!

And now, I’ll brag about the cool things I’m doing this week:

Thursday: Going to a taping of Wait, Wait…Don’t Tell Me with Andrea!

Friday: Representing my graduate program in a trivia competition.  (Okay, moderately cool.)

Saturday: Going to the taping of the season finale of Saturday Night Live with either Mom or Dad!


Rewind to tonight, where I think I’m getting sick.  Crap.

Don’t Worry, I’m Still Alive

Last weekend I went to Reykjavik. I returned home to be greeted by my computer with the blue screen of death. My second hard drive has crashed, turning my lovely computer into a glorified door stop. This weekend, I am traveling again, keeping me away from a computer for another few days. When I return to New Jersey, I will attempt to post several of the articles I’ve read over the past week. Sorry for the lapse and happy mothers’ day!

Barack Obama’s 100th Day, but Apparently We’re All Going to Get Swine Flu

100 Days of Barack Obama’s News Feed.

Conservatives don’t know Colbert is joking.

In related news, Michele Bachmann is a complete nut job, as is Virginia Foxx.  ($10 says they don’t know Colbert is joking, either.)

From Justin, amusingly defaced street signs.

I don’t 100% agree with this guy, but he is so right on very many points.

Sure the Nationals are not great at baseball, but they might make your marriage last longer.

Thanks, Jimmy Carter.

NYT on Kindle.

Do you have swine flu?

Picture update: Scholars in New York (it’s not very scholarly), My First Visit to CitiField (I rooted for the other team), Rutgers Day 2009 (anyone have Maryland Day 2009 photos?).  Okay, that should keep you busy for a while.
