When in doubt, link!

Ah, the clicky post. If I have nothing interesting to say, why shouldn't my betters have a shot at reaching my audience. All 3 of them! (sigh) I'm so thoughty.

Read this. Once again, the Shoe blogger amuses greatly. His thoughts on mother-daughter matching holiday sweaters "This, it is clearly child abuse." Ha!

Also, read this. McSweeney's gets the spirit of the Microsoft Office Assistant (the Paperclip) perfectly. "Don't be mad, I have eyebrows!" - classic.

Here's an encouraging article. I'm not sure what the longterm effects will be, but it is good to see innovation in place of the pat (and often too comfortable) answers the middle class brings to poverty and racial issues. "The program aims at tearing down the worst projects and re-creating mixed-income neighborhoods, the first step in combating poverty." Ah, but will the stuffy middle-classers submit to living with those less fortunate than themselves?

Dear Erica,

Of COURSE I remember you!...from that one act we were in AND because I just..do...AND because my suitemates are Laura Parks and Megan Palmer (Megan is the one I constantly refer to as "churro") both of whom absolutely adore you. Also, Hans said that you sent him an email, which I appreciate, because the kid needs friends in the area besides his quirky (but adorable) relatives and his law books.

Also, (sorry if this sounds internet-stalker creepyish), Churro pointed your blog out to me a few weeks ago, and I just have to tell you that you're a fantastic and highly amusing writer.

Anyway, sorry this comment had nothing to do with the content of your post, but just thought I'd drop a line. And if senior year really does make you cry more than any other year...good grief...I'm going to flood the suite!

Have a lovely day,
Rachel
