“I may not have gone where I intended to go, but I think I have ended up where I needed to be.” —Douglas Adams
Will always be one of my favorites. And yay weekend! It’s amazing how productive a person can be when they aren’t hungover…

Unfortunately, I won’t be blogging much this weekend. But to get you through, I have compiled a list of links that I most likely would have blogged about or find interesting enough to share, and you’ll have to use your imagination to think of what Mal and/or I would say about them.
This story about siblings torn apart by the Holocaust and being reunited after 66 years made me cry more than watching the video of Christian the Lion. No jokes and nothing snarky to say–there is good in this world.
Here is an interesting piece on Wall-E. The first negative thing I’ve read and it brings up some valid points. Still haven’t seen the movie though. What do you think?
People are over medicated, and our dogs are next. Here is a piece from the NYT Magazine. Since I’m not going to, make all the jokes you want. Make me proud.
There’s going to be a DC version of “The Hills”. I’m pissed, because I wanted to be in it. My idea for a show title was just “The Hill”. Clever, I know. Ha. Shockingly, they went for more party oriented than political party oriented girls…
I love baby names, and I might give someone a candy bar or something to let me name their child. But give up a gas card? HELL NO. Have you seen the price of gas? This story is so wrong on so many levels. I LOVE IT. These people are nutso. Maybe I should do something like this. I bet I could come up with something better than Sunday Rose. Ugh.
And finally, a slideshow of supermodels then and now. Claudia Schiffer is still pretty hot. And girl don’t even get me started on Tyra.
Dunzo. Enjoy. Comment. Have adventures. Miss me. XOXO.

My friends Kelsey, Sarah and I were talking today about the phrase “balls to the wall.” As Kelsey aptly put it, in what situation would anyone ever put their balls to the wall? Anyone know the origin of this nice little phrase? Help us out and post your insight.
And, dear readers? Let’s go balls to the wall this weekend.
UPDATE: Reader Mike has an answer for us:
The term “balls to the wall” is an old truckers term (there is a difference between a truck driver and a trucker) While on a “Hot” load (needed yesterday) the driver would be up driving all night, which us really tiring and they have to open their eyes real wide and have their (eye) balls to the wall (windshield) all night.
Sounds good to me. Thanks, Mike!
