youtube clip of today: samba baby.

This baby has more rhythm in his tiny little ass than I could ever hope to have in my tiny little ass. I love his sassy attitude, as he points to his invisible crowd of admirers:

youtube clip of today: kitten’s hat.

Ur hat iz stoopid.

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: love kittens, hate cats. Why is it that cute kitten videos are always entertaining?

Hope your Monday was as productive as mine!

today is a google holiday, hooray!

Today’s Google Holiday: Happy 100th Birthday Jacques Cousteau! Now, does it count as a birthday if the person is dead? I’m not sure I can support the phrasing of this holiday. They should have titled it, “It Would Have Been Cool If You Were Still Alive, Jacques, Because Then You Would Have Been 1oo!” Then again, if I had worked for Google, yesterday’s National Iced Tea Day and the second anniversary of this here bloggie (!!!) on June 9 would have been featured. They’ll get their priorities straight eventually. Jacques might have done cool stuff in the ocean, but Kathleen and I post funny videos that other people made. I really don’t understand the difference.

What I was Googling: Nothing, actually. (I considered making something up that was kind of awkward/funny, like maybe “the electric slide,” but that would have been dishonest.) I was actually on Google to see if yesterday’s picture party was still going on. Did anyone else see that? Instead of being white, the Google homepage background was a fabulous picture that changed every so often. I think they were advertising a new feature where you can pick any photo you want and have it be your background. I grabbed a screen shot of this baby:

It’s fun, like Fridays are fun! Have a good one!

think on this, boys and girls.

“The Internet is like alcohol in some sense. It accentuates what you would do anyway. If you want to be a loner, you can be more alone. If you want to connect, it makes it easier to connect.”

–Esther Dyson, Interview in Time Magazine, October 2005

youtube clip of today: bp spill.

Brilliant! That is all I can say about that.

In other BP related items, the geniuses over at AutoTune the News made a new video with Barack’s ass-kicking comment.

hooray, it’s a mini google holiday!

I’m guessing they’re keeping this up throughout the World Cup. If you Google “world cup” and scroll to the bottom of the page, here’s what you get:

Oh Google, I love you. Thanks for the tip, Miss Madeline!

Speaking of the World Cup, here are some reasons I love where I live:

1. This Saturday, there will be a screening of the World Cup games in Dupont Circle. How fun is that?! Just like with the Superbowl, I’d never pretend that I care about soccer in general, but I accept any excuse to get excited about a large-scale sporting event. Especially when adult beverages are involved, and lord knows they will be.

2. Yesterday, there was a man who looked to be about 45 driving down my street in a convertible, unabashedly blaring the Glee soundtrack.

3. A few days ago, a dude was casually walking down the street with an enormous parrot perched on his shoulder. Is that even legal?
