Link Lovin': The Popurls Remix

Hot Library Smut?
Libraries are sexy.

Best Selling Books
Anyone have any favorites to recommend?

Canceling Casual Fridays

Don't worry. The real ones are coming back. ;)

More Crazy from the Cruise Camp

Hollywood stops taking his crap. Finally. Do it yourself, Tom!
"The Brooke Shields thing really turned women against him," a source close to the studio told The News. "It was the last straw."

Home Depot Invasion
More performance art from Improv Everywhere.

Kill a Complainer
This actually sounds like a handy solution! Try it out and let me know if it works.

30 Rock Gets a Bean?

It's just a beautiful big shiny bean. I wonder if it will play a role on 30 Rock.

"Some Indians regard Hitler as just another historical figure and have little knowledge about the Holocaust"?
Is this fo' serious?

Apple and Creative truce
Took long enough. Ah, bureaucracy. It's thick. I know-- I'm in it.

"marrying a "career girl" seems to lead to a fate worse than tangling with a hungry cougar"!
I think it's just funny that he got away with using the term "career girl" in Forbes...

Which Housewife Are You?
Go on and take it even if you're a guy, c'mon! I'm not even married but I got "Gabrielle". Yikes!

RiteAid Steps Up
My favorite pharmacy tries to stop being a loser.

Yes, Dell Sucks
Bet Jarvis got a kick outta this one.

Sympathy Vote
If you thought you were having a bad day...

    I hope yours isn't one of them.

    Cupertino, California-based Apple will recall 1.1 million batteries sold with notebook computers in the United States and 700,000 abroad, the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission said.

    They were sold with Apple iBook G4 and PowerBook G4 computers from October 2003 through this month, according to the safety commission.

    Thank God I have an HP.

    Hmm... I'm not sure why but the "Thank God I have an HP" line made me laugh a little out loud. Yes, I guess you really dodged a bullet on that one.

    I feel so duped! There's no sluts at all in these library pictures...

    Hi Amanda,

    It depends on what kind of books you like personally but books that I would recommend are as follows.

    Neuromancer by William Gibson
    Magician by Raymond E. Feist
    To Kill a Mokingbird By Harper Lee
    Flowers for Algernon by Daniel Keyes
    Catch 22 by Joseph Heller

    If your wanting something easy to read that keeps you occupied try anyone of Jeffrey Deaver's books. He wrote the book bone collector that got turned into a movie with Angelie Jolie and Denzel Washington.

    For a few laughs try Does anything eat wasps? from NewScientist. Some funny questions and answers.

    Hey Amanda, nice mix of content on the blog Thursday.

    Here's an idea: Maybe you could do some kind of Internet video show with this kind of presentation, and perhaps some links along the bottom of the screen? Maybe even a cheesy theme song or two.

    Just a thought.

    How are you holding up? Got a life-path yet to go with the shiny new laptop? (Hope your battery wasn't on the list).

    BTW, what do you have against Dell? Is there a nasty laptop fire in your past? I've had two of them and you could pound nails with them.

    I hope you've got some good times planned for the rest of the summer. Don't listen to the dweebs who think it's over. They get more churlish and earlier every year.

    Thanks for this great blog which could easily been a vlog. There were so many things to look at and enjoy. I too ended up being Gabrielle--well, hey, she's fun! I expect you are working out a next move that will be just the thing for you so I won't offer empathy or such but you know I'm always here to say I support you 100% And Casual Fridays are over without you! Well, 'nuff said.
    Love, d henry
