+ To get everyone ready for this week's return of "30 Rock" -- can I get a hallelujah? -- here's an interview with Jack McBrayer aka Kenneth the Page from yesterday's New York Times.
+ Time Magazine released their list of the Top 25 Blogs In the Entire World!. I'm assuming The Park Bench just barely got nipped off the list somewhere around #26 1/2.
+ A science-y sort of article explaining why even thinking about a good laugh can make you feel better. That must be why I feel better every time I think about Elizabeth Hasselback forming a "thought."
+ This story is sad because of what happened to the insectivore in question, but it's also undeniably absurd what with the whole "assault with hedgehog" angle. My favorite part of the article? "It's unclear whether alcohol was involved." Seriously? The guy threw a small mammal at someone. He better have been drunk.
