Friday Recap: Brain Worms Edition
Seth Godin says Adults Are The New Kids, which leads me to believe Seth has been secretly stalking me in the grocery store. What’s wrong with rolling up to the checkout counter with nothing more than a box of Oreos, a bottle of Sprite, peanut butter and a $6 chocolate bar? Sounds like all the essentials to me.
Jeremy Zawodny points us to the incredible Weller Mini Torch, which, at less than $10, is definitely the greatest keychain accessory a single, young female could have. Take that you scary-guy-who-lurks-in-dark-corners freak. (Sorry, I had a strange encounter last night. I don’t want to talk about it.)
Speaking of fun little toys, Engadget reports that 1 in 8 blokes (That’s Brit for “guy”) would trade their lady for a “must have” gadget. I see nothing wrong with that. I would take a flat screen TV, funky cell phone or even a Weller Mini Torch over a boy any day. Jack Jack is the only man I need in my life. [ <– a link to one of my kitties in the blog. Rejoice!] [Word. Guys are easy to find and replace. –Susan]
And though this hasn’t been confirmed, I say the reason boys are so willing to give up their lady friends is because their toys now dress up for them in pretty little outfits. Sadly, I’m built just like that laptop. [Why did I click on that link? Why? Never. Clean. Again. –Susan]
If you’re looking for something to lift your spirits, check out the Wo-Wo-Windows/386 Song. It cured my morning.
I’m sure you know how I feel about Mark Cuban [grumble, grumble], but earlier this week he ranted about the ridiculousness of the suit, and I have to say, I’m with you, Mark. I’m not with you on anything else you’ve ever said, but I’m with you on this. Suits are dumb. Let’s all show up to work barefoot and in sweats.
Phil Lenssen asks How Much Would You Pay For Google. I wouldn’t pay anything for Google. It’s free. Duh. I think Phil’s working too hard.
Over at SEOFangirl’s blog, we learn that Danny Sullivan is so powerful a mystical white aura surrounds him. Ooo. .
What’s the scariest thing you’ve ever seen in your life? Is it a giant rabbit capable of swallowing small children in one gulp? I bet it is! However, if you looking for the best laugh you’ll have all day, peruse the comments section over at Slashdot on the topic. Absolute giggle fits. [I want a giant bunny. Also a pony. Yes, I’m five. –Susan]
Also terrifying: Brain worms. [holds head]
What’s the opposite of horrifying giant rabbits and worms that wiggle in your brain? A squealworthy baby Sri Lankan slender loris. It’s so cute I almost want to eat it.
I’m sure you’re aware (unless you’re Susan) that NFL playoff season is among us. [That has to do with hockey, right? –Susan] On Sunday, Tom Brady and the rockin’ New England Patriots will take on Eli’s brother and the Indianapolis Colts. I’m not saying the Colts don’t have a shot (but they don’t), I’d just like to remind all the haters out there that the Pats are 5-0 in AFC Championships since 1966 and own more conference championship victories than any other team in NFL history. That’s all I’m sayin, Bob, if that is your real name.
To help everyone get in the mood for the big AFC game on Sunday, I present you with this touching Tom Brady tribute (If it looks familiar it’s because we’ve linked to it before) and a reminder of what a real Patriots fan looks like. Happy tailgating, people.
[Oh yeah, and the New Orleans Saints are also playing the Bears in Chicago, but I’m not so much interested in that game. East Coast pride.] [All I need from a team is a great theme song. (Thanks for the link, Chris!) –Susan]
