procrastination loop, anyone? (click to enlarge. see? you got to waste a good 2 seconds just reading this line.)

Several things, but most importantly...

... someone needs to make me this posthaste:


You should read the recipe to get the full effect, but here's an image:

EDITED TO ADD: You think I should make this for Thanksgiving this year? It's no kitty litter cake, but I bet it would provoke a reaction.

Other items:

1) Dani, it would take too long to explain the "Still Alive" phenomenon right now, but suffice to say that it is a song written for a video game by Jonathan Coulton, aka the guy who did the Podcast from the Moon.

2) I missed the video below and now it is off YouTube... anyone know of a mirror? I suppose it's not that important but I would like to take the don't-fall-over-laughing challenge if possible.

3) Speaking of Jonathan Coulton, just making sure that any fans of his (and Paul and Storm) didn't miss this gem -- JoCo & P&S recording songs in each other's style for a Song Fu challenge a few months ago. Both are pretty dead-on IMHO, but I have to give the nod to JoCo's "Big Dick Farts a Polka" as the superior style parody. Here's the link if you missed it (scroll down a bit for links to the MP3's):


Dani, you can probably just ignore #3 unless you want more explaining...

Lakeshore Theater just called again--with TEN MORE FREE TICKETS!

Oh, well.

I have nothing against people of the christian faith, but...

this may be the most hilarious thing ever. the blog where I found it dared viewers not to fall over laughing at the 1:54 mark, and I failed. whoa man.

dani, promise me that choreographed dances will be featured in your future church, okay? I would come just to see this. and you, of course. but this would be a MAJOR draw.

Videos for youuuuuu

This very evening, I have doubled my presence on YouTube. Indeed! Not satisfied with mere photos of our Chicago adventures, here are some videos (sorry about the weird angle on the first one; it fixes itself at the end):

And also:

Finally, of my other two videos, the one of Foxy licking the bow last Christmas has lots more views and five stars, whereas my (granted, kind of lame, and also you can totally hear that I'm losing my voice) Christmas tree tour only has four. I think the biggest surprise is that anyone would bother rating the video at all: "Yeah, it's a pretty good tour, but I prefer my Christmas tree tours with more commentary and less huffing and puffing as the narrator runs up and down stairs. Four stars."

Pop vs. Soda

The debate rages on, but at least we have data now:

(Full post: http://strangemaps.wordpress.com/2008/08/18/308-the-pop-vs-soda-map)

What I want to know is... in that one county right in the middle of New Mexico, where 80-100% of the population calls it something else... what DO they call it?

And moreover, what would someone call it if Neil Patrick Harris was drinking coffee in Dubai with muppets?
