(no subject)

I have an actual "Yay, I love December!" entry I want to write, but first I want to clean out my linkspam:

New White Witch icons. Take 'em, use 'em, customize 'em, whatev.

In the time it took me to get around to writing an entry, I'm sure you've all heard about Violet Ann Affleck.

"I'M HAVING A BABY TOO! LOOK AT MEEEEE!" I'm putting my money down on "Pomegranate," myself. I mean, it is the fashionable fruit right now.

FBI Plants Fake Candidate in W.Va. Race.

Ann Coulter has posted the real name, address, and phone number of a blogger on the front page of her website. Here's the best part: when challenged, she edited that section--to make clear which remarks were hers and which remarks were the blogger's, by adding brackets. As in, she totally left all the personal information up. I find Coulter to be a pernicious asshat regardless of her political affiliation, but even she is about to find out via some public outcry that you don't play this shit in the blogosphere.

The $10 million dollar bat mitzvah. But there's more about the father: an SEC investigation and class-action suits against his bullet-proof vest manufacturing company. You see, he's a defense contractor who may or may not purchased parts for the vests from his wife's company--vests that then failed to stop bullets in tests. The Marines recalled the vests from troops in Iraq, Afghanistan and Djibouti in May--but not before the father sold off $186 million worth of stock last December. Hence the funds for the ultradecadent bat mitzvah, starring Aerosmith, 50 Cent, Stevie Nicks, Don Henley, and Kenny G.

prncssaurora: Bid on an iPod, pay in sausage. You know, I think this is an idea whose time has come. I have at least two pieces of Sideshow Weta polystone I bought as an investment, and I am not entirely unsure that I would not accept quality chocolate as payment.

Lucius Malfoy has invested in Wal-Mart stock, apparently.

Michelle Rodriguez is on her fourth DUI and she's taking Cynthia Watros with her. I knew those Tailaways were bad news.

Speaking of which, those of you who like celebrity legal gossip (you heard about Vince Vaughn and Jennifer Aniston getting pulled over for a DUI, right?) as well as true crime will enjoy Justice, a new magazine. I'm mentioning it ostensibly because the Amazing McRachel is now working there (YAY!), but I am ridiculously pleased with the concept alone. If it's like the bastard spawn of Crime Library and US Weekly, it'll be awesome.

The Doll Lady. If spooky old-fashioned dolls scare you, do not watch this. Personally, I watched it with the sound turned off, because I had a feeling there'd be a jump scare near the end.

Also from the Amazing McRachel: "Lie away: If you read this, if your eyes are passing over this right now, please post a comment with a COMPLETELY MADE UP AND FICTIONAL memory of you and me. It can be anything you want -- good or bad -- BUT IT HAS TO BE FAKE. When you're finished, post this little paragraph on your blog and be surprised (or mortified) about what people DON'T ACTUALLY remember about you."
