Cleaning Out the Links

The Einstein chalkboard generator:

By the way, don't forget that both Fortinbras and Sweet Charity open this weekend!!!! Lots of theater-type stuff to do. A plan: Come see Macbeth on either Friday or Saturday (before it closes and you can NEVER EVER see this particular version again). Then, the other night, see Fortinbras for more swordplay, or Sweet Charity for a complete change of pace. Next weekend, catch the last of them. Simple, no?

Wikipedia List of British words not used in American English. Most of the list is not off-color, but the ones that are seem to have already migrated. There's a social statement in that somewhere.

Day No. 1:

And the Lord God said, 'Let there be light,' and lo, there was light. But then the Lord God said, 'Wait, what if I make it a sort of rosy, sunset-at-the-beach, filtered half-light, so that everything else I design will look younger?'

'I'm loving that,' said Buddha. 'It's new.'

'You should design a restaurant,' added Allah.

World Leaders sing Abba, featuring George W. Bush singing 'The Winner Takes It All,' [and] Bill Gates with 'Money, Money'..."

A Romanian man filed a lawsuit against God for screwing up his life. The suit alleges that the man was promised a good life in return for “various goods and prayers,” and that the 20-year sentence he’s currently serving in a Romanian jail represents a clear breach of contract." Nope, it's not the Onion. It's real.

For my next remodeling project: how to make a secret bookshelf door.

An author takes Google's side in the copyright wars:
Someone asked me recently, "Meghann, how can you say you don't mind people reading parts of your book for free? What if someone xeroxed your book and was handing it out for free on street corners?"

I replied, "Well, it seems to be working for Jesus."

‘‘No one really thought through the consequences of parking the cars and leaving the keys so they could be easily moved,’’ the governor said (discussing his son's stolen car.)
