There are some very cute and affordable options for girl’s swimsuits out there, and I’ve found some of them for you, with a few more expensive options as well.  Some of them are too adorable to resist.

Top Ten Sesame Street Moments?

Sunday, May 31st, 2009

Well, normally I’d never link to Jezebel; their commenters aren’t as smart and good-looking as ours are, not to mention all those “Date Rape: what’s all the fuss?” posts they did not so long ago, but every once in a while they simply fail to fail, as they do here with their 10 Awesome Moments from Sesame Street.

Singing, cultural diversity and huggable puppets: What’s not to love? (How many of these albums did you have?)

  1. Me and My Llama
  2. Ladybug Picnic
  3. School Pageant: Flower
  4. Pinball 12 with the Pointer Sisters!
  5. Ernie Can’t Sleep
  6. I Love Trash (my all-time favorite)
  7. Somebody Come and Play
  8. C is for Cookie
  9. Near and Far with Grover
  10. Fairy Alphabet, which I don’t believe I’ve ever actually seen before

Now, I dunno about you, but to me this list lacks a few things. A few AWESOME things, namely Monsterpiece Theatre, Elmo interviewing Ricky Gervais, and Neil Patrick Harris as the Shoe Fairy. Behold!


Hot Mama Tip: Neon Nails

Baby, 80’s neon is baaa-aaack! The easiest way to display this trend is, of course, with nail polish. OPI has some truly day-glo options that will look perfect with a tan. Obtained either via lotion or copious amounts of sunscreen, natch.

Somebody’s a mite possessive about that cake, I’m thinking.

Apparently in the year 2009, we have absolutely no love for the hairy.  Sorry, Burt Reynolds.  I won’t embarass him further by stating his margin of loss.  It was ugly.  As ugly as you all thought his hairy body was.

Today we’ve got a man considered one of the most handsome to ever grace the big screen as our challenger.  Watch your (presumably non-hairy) back, McQueen!

A Kid After My Own Heart

This question posed on Yahoo! Questions inspires a bit of hope for the next generation:

This happened a lot and my locker got to overflowing with the banned books, so I decided to put the unoccupied locker next to me to a good use. I now have 62 books in that locker, about half of what was on the list. I took care only to bring the books with literary quality. Some of these books are:
The Perks of Being a Wallflower
His Dark Materials trilogy
Sabriel
The Canterbury Tales
Candide
The Divine Comedy
Paradise Lost
The Godfather
Mort
Interview with the Vampire
The Hunger Games
The Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy
A Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur’s Court
Animal Farm
The Witches
Shade’s Children
The Evolution of Man
the Holy Qu’ran
… and lots more.

Anyway, I now operate a little mini-library that no one has access to but myself. Practically a real library, because I keep an inventory log and give people due dates and everything. I would be in so much trouble if I got caught, but I think it’s the right thing to do because before I started, almost no kid at school but myself took an active interest in reading! Now not only are all the kids reading the banned books, but go out of their way to read anything they can get their hands on. So I’m doing a good thing, right? Oh, and since you’re probably wondering “Why can’t you just go to a local library and check out the books?” most of the kids are too chicken or their parents won’t let them but the books. I think that people should have open minds. Most of the books were banned because they contained information that opposed Catholicism. I limit my ‘library’ to only the sophmores, juniors and seniors just in case so you can’t say I’m exposing young people to materiel they’re not mature enough for. But is what I’m doing wrong because parents and teachers don’t know about it and might not like it, or is it a good thing because I am starting appreciation of the classics and truly good novels (Not just fad novels like Twilight) in my generation?

This ‘n That

What can you say to a woman who buys her 18-year-old daughter Botox injections to take care of “wrinkles,” and who’s spent another £45,000 on surgery to beautify herself?

If the Crypt Keeper were a Thai transsexual

Nothing except perhaps: not enough. Not nearly enough.
