Goodbye!

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!

Always,

EmGusk

P.S. Here are some last links that I couldn’t resist sharing:

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!

A Post that Ends in an Infomercial

Sesame Street is going to make a Mad Men parody!  I can’t tell you how excited this makes me!  (Almost as excited as this!)

In other Muppet news, Count Von Count is now following me on Twitter.  I am amused.

Those controversial Air Force One flyover photos that freaked out everyone downtown.

Thirteen-year-old throws 25 no hitters!

How Different People Spend Their Day.

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.

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.

Good Links to Start Your Monday

Although most of you probably have no idea what I’m talking about, I’m bummed that CBS radio is getting rid of their “chirp.” Thanks, Dan, Dan, The Weatherman!

101 Muppets of Sesame Street!!!!  And it’s interactive!

Behind the scenes with the video editor at “The Daily Show.”

A guy drives a Tesla in NYC and gets lots of attention…from men.

Frank Rich on the Sotomayor hearings.

Bo’s thoughts on his time in the White House.

The Onion: New Live Poll Allows Pundits to Pander to Viewers In Real Time

Ridiculous Frisbee action flick.  (According to Manzell, this is a real movie…)

LOLTatz.  Lots of poor life decisions there.

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.”

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!”
