I know the entries have been linkspam-centric the last few days, and that I get a lot of complaints when I don't post any "original content" (i.e., some humorous blathering about everyday life), but... honestly, there's nothing to blather about at the moment. I'm lying bolt awake all night unable to sleep and then muddling through the day. Nothing terribly interesting at the moment.

Censored Tyra Mails from America's Next Top Model. (Please note that McSweeney's is a parody site.)

Making Light: Centralizing the Cylert campaign.

Apple Computer Alters iTunes Software to Be Less Evil.

Snake befriends snack: "The rat snake, however, refused to eat the rodent. The two now share a cage, and the hamster sometimes falls asleep sitting on top of his natural foe." With frickin' adorable picture.

Whale spotted in Central London: "But at 0830 GMT on Friday, a man on a train called in to say he might have been hallucinating, but he had just seen a whale in the Thames."

Zomg an Edith Wharton doll!

la_sonnambula: "And in a case of life sort of imitating The Onion, Mel Gibson is threatening to sue the owner of melgibsonsblog.blogspot.com."

Study: Most College Students Lack Skills. And now you know why I have a cardboard sign in my closet that reads "Will think for food."

riverchild: "Some poking around on the imdb boards yielded this: Last Conservative. There's an ad for the [Imagine Me and You] trailer on their MySpace." Okay. I've emailed, or messaged, or whatevered, the band and asked if they could make an mp3 available somehow. I was also not above mentioning our obsession with "Cells" last year, so... maybe we'll hear back from them. ETA: They did! They're going to put up an mp3 next week, so stay tuned for that.

dailydigestnews: Just a little bit for the last entry there--crossposted the trailer song bit, some news about Adrien Brody wanting to play the Joker, a Lena Headey interview, an embarrassing typo therein, some stuff about Sundance. You know, the standard. ; )

Okay, I wrote this earlier today:

On one hand, I just burned my fingertips on the toaster oven. On the other hand, I just made a totally awesome sandwich with Em's sun-dried-tomato-edged turkey, paper-thin smoked cheddar, Swiss cheese, and marble rye. With dill pickles on the side. Mmm.

Sounds pretty chipper, right? Well, two hours later I was crying over having to wash dishes I didn't even cook with or eat on. (Yes, we have a dishwasher. Yes, I was running it. That's how many dishes had been dirtied--so many I had to wash a separate sinkful by hand just to get them all done before my stepfather got home and blew a fuse. This is what happens when multiple cooking students come over for the afternoon. No, I don't know why I had to wash them, except that... no, I still don't know.) What I'm saying is, running out of one's antidepressant medication at the beginning of the week is a bad, bad thing.

(And then Sister Girl was miffed because there wasn't much hot water for her shower. Because I had used it all WASHING HER PANS.)

*sells kidney, moves out*

Update from previous entry: Whale Swimming in London Lost, Likely Sick.

Second update: Lost whale heading back to sea.

Peaches Honeyblossom Michelle Charlotte Angel Vanessa Geldof to celebrity parents of the world: STOP IT.

Speaking of Peaches Geldof: Paging Gwyneth!

robyn_ma: "Tom Cruise stops the South Park Scientology episode from airing in the UK."

More Atropa's Cottage drama. The link up top is to a really funny BPAL/Atropa's Totally Unlike BPAL Cottage parody and refers to the drama in the comments, not any displeasure with the parody itself.

dailydigestnews: Reese AND Natalie scammed by Chanel!
