INTERBLOGATORY GRAB BAG THURSDAY
"Down here in Crawford we call this July" ;~)
8 gag snicker gak Brother Algore, "POP IDOL"?
8 Cindy Adams reports (link timed out by Friday): ISRAEL. Friends just back say that, unlike flights out of Lebanon, their plane home had many empty seats. They say Tel Aviv restaurants are packed. Beaches in Herzliya are mobbed. Malls everywhere are crowded. The airport, normal. No untoward sense of urgency. For this moment anyhow, it's business as usual. Israelis, having always lived under siege, go on with their lives. Tourists still exist but with an itinerary change. Instead of going north toward Tiberias and Haifa, it's south to the Dead Sea and Eilat. In the words of one who returned Sunday: "It was surreal. We watched all this destruction on TV on CNN and then calmly discussed where we were having dinner that night."
8 Language Log finds the MSM is full of "shit."
8 This place is very near my home. Rattlesnakes close rest area: Timber rattlesnakes are classified by New York state as a threatened species, Corneau said. "It is against the law to go looking for them, harass them, search for them, gather them or pick them up," he said.
8 I hope Jake didn’t cry (sniff sniff): Lance Teases Jake at the ESPY Awards
8 For you high-brows out there: Cat Haiku and Dog Haiku
8 Man, I wish I could sing like the Scottish lass, Sandi Thom, "with flowers in my hair."
8 And finally … Sitting at work and wondering whatinthehell Baby Suri, spawn of TomKat, looks like? Yeah, me neither. But if you are, ShowBuzz has the next best thing: Simulated Suri! As in click’n’drag pieces of Katie’s head and Tom’s head and make your own version of Baby Suri. Frankly, I had more fun putting Katie’s chin on Tom’s face. Whatthehell, it kills time.
