Alan Alda’s name is 50% a’s. (And 25% l’s!)

All the News that’s Fit to Blog

I was watching The Colbert Report on Hulu, and there was an item about the WBC, which got me briefly excited until I realized they were talking about the World Barista Championships, which lends itself to stunning footage like this:

As opposed to the World Bartending Championships, where people do things like pour seven […]

Linky Linky

So I don’t have to thinky thinky.

I want to move to the UK, just so I can read their editorials. Seriously, this is what passes for an opinion piece over there. It’s more important, and a damn sight better written, than what passes for news on our side of the pond – even if […]

I got a new tooth this morning. It’s porcelain, so it feels cold. Distinctly unnatural.

Back again again again

I had an awesome weekend. Thanks, y’all!
