In other slightly more relevant news...
- Did you know that today is National Punctuation Day? Let's start inserting unnecessary semi-colons in everything we write today and completely gum; up the works!!! Yeah, three exclamation points worth of enthusiasm there! (Wait, four...)
- Did you happen to catch this quick 10-question interview with Alec Baldwin in TIME?
- Did you get to see "How I Met Your Mother" dealing with the age-old concern of what to do if your significant other doesn't like your favorite movie - in this case, "Star Wars?" What would you do? Thank God the husband shares my Whedon love, although we still clash on "BSG." Are there counselors for this kind of thing?
- And finally, this has nothing to do with nerdiness. I just like the title: "Pony-sized pig traps woman for 10 days." I love any and all headlines with the word "pony" in it. On my office wall, actually, I have an old Reuters story with the headline "Driver fined for Cramming Pony in Hatchback." Brilliant. The world would be a better place if we just used the word "pony" more often. For example: "Secretary Paulson and a small Shetland pony testified before Congress today; pony denounced neigh-sayers." And suddenly, we all feel a lot better, right?
