News of the Day -- Monday, March 7

+ This post, entitled "Trends of Doom: Blogging Will Make You Fat, Or Skinny, and KILL YOU," cracked me up...and made me a little nervous. Luckily, I'm not nearly as industrious as those crazy bastards at Gizmodo. I get fat the old fashioned way -- by climbing into a closet, surrounding myself with Twinkies and eating my way to freedom.

+ A group of third and fourth graders in Maine are trying not to complain for 21 days straight, using handy purple wrist-bands to remind themselves to internalize their frustrations and never, ever let them out. This seems really unfair and has prompted me to complain twice as much as usual on their behalf. I'm all about the children.

+ Buffy and Angel fans will enjoy this article about zombies and a very odd city council meeting. All I know is, I wish I'd thought of this...and actually had the guts to do it.

Don't ever take away my right to complain, damnit!

Although, difficult children really do get on my nerves, so that might not be such a bad thing for them after all.

Yeah, I kind of got the sense that the teacher saw those bracelets and suddenly envisioned salvation in her classroom. No more whining children!

Hmm ... yet again xkcd trumps the NYT.
