Linkalicious

This story about the refusal to set up new porn domains with the suffix .xxx came from Mr. Stapler with this notation (which is why I love him):

"They also rejected the following proposed domains:
.cum, .ass, .skank, .milf, .perv and .bootylicious"

........................


After many tries, I finally got something published in the "Readers Write" section of my favorite magazine, The Sun. The bad news is that it is not in the online excerpt. The good news is that their back issue archive will provide you with many happy hours of browsing good writing.

Proof that I am an utter geek, as though you needed more: When I saw the ad for "Poseidon" on Yahoo, I immediately thought "Wow. Weird. You just don't see that much of the font Eurostyle Bold No. 2 anymore."

........................

Is this prank on a phone customer service person too mean to laugh at? It wasn't for me. But I am sick that way.

Hilarious street theater from KC Improv. They do some street preachifying that even a secularist could love.

There are mothers. And then there are (I hope you don't have to register for this) mothers.

From The Straight Dope, today's weird insect news
In answer to a recent question about whether it was safe to eat a cookie that ants had been crawling on, I explained that the cookie was probably cleaner after the ants had touched it as a result of their metapleural gland secretions. It's as though human sweat contained Lysol. If we were as chemical-covered and germ-free as the average ant, we'd all live longer, healthier lives.
Yay for ants. I still don't want them on my counter, even if it is cleaner for them having been there.

Ok, this is just damn weird.

My in-laws will be at the Angel game this weekend. I'll be sure to warn them of the potential tote bag riot. Scary.

Congrats from me also on the publish-thing. (envy, envy)

I want to be a lawyer so I can think of "legitimate" reasons to sue people. Wait, in 2 years my boyfriend will be a lawyer...

I am going to go look for those plaques. I've never even heard of them, let alone seen them.

LOL I've seen that page with the credit card thing before. Apparently, he pulled quite a stunt in Boston by pretending to be Michael Jackson. heh

Cool on the Sun gig!

The Visa thing was hilarious.

Boobz!! rofl

The lawsuit over tote bags ought to get thrown out immediately. So dumb.

So, then, it's probably okay for me to bring breakfast out to the garden in the morning. The ants will keep it fresh while I work!
