I was poking around online while not exactly paying attention to the Golden Globes (Yay! Jennifer Hudson won! I was going to see Dreamgirls tomorrow anyhow — I prefer to watch my American Idol on tape delay, so I can zap through the commercials — so this will be extra cool.) and came across many nifty things I was going to link to and save for further exploration later, such as
- 11 x 17 — Your source for binders, page protectors, and other items for tabloid-size pages. I'm tempted to sign up for their mailing list to maintain my office-supply-geek cred.
- Ohio Brew Week — Details on this year's festival and photos/summaries of last year's event.
- The Museum of Kitschy Stitches: A Gallery of Notorious Knits by Stitchy McYarnpants — Come on! This sounds so hi-larious, and it totally delivers! There's even a book that's the equivalent of The Gallery of Regrettable Food and Interior Desecrations: Hideous Homes from the Horrible 70s.
On top of that, the author just did a guest appearance at the Museum of Bad Art in Dedham, MA — a museum that just a few months ago was the topic of much road-trip planning at the office.
(Maybe they'll add Wolfgirl to the MoBA collection? I just saw the opening segment of the Gilmore Girls episode where Lorelei and Christopher (boo!) have Friday Night Dinner with the senior Gilmores and receive an "extraordinary" etching as a wedding gift. Heh. Another element of synchronicity: The episode is called "Knit, People, Knit! And I suppose Kiki Smith won't be in the MoBA anytime soon, since she's already in the MoMA.)
Anyhow, I followed some links to other sites, and to other blogs, and so on and so on, and somebody mentioned that a woman died as a result of a "Hold Your Wee for a Wii" contest in California. I thought that sounded crazy, so I Googled it for further details.
First off, I think it's funny that Google asks you if you meant to type "Hold Your Weed for a Wii" before they give you the results for your actual search. Sadly, there are no results for "Hold Your Weed for a Wii," but can you imagine that contest? Secondly, apparently you can imbibe too much water and suffer from water intoxication. Yeesh. How freaky.
