Morning Coffee (2/24/11)Morning Coffee
And now it's . . . Thursday, I think? Yes. Okay, I just want to say that there are about five million big huge things going on in the world right now, and I know I'm not even mentioning most of them, and I promise, I'm aware. I just mostly tend to talk about things that I know something about or have a particularly interesting link for, and Libya, for example, is not something I know anything about. So. It's not like any of you are depending on me for real news, anyway. I just worry you'll think I'm oblivious to everything other than pretty boys on TV and the occasional Dave Weigel piece.
Speaking of! More Weigel on Wisconsin - this time, how the state Assembly fits in.
IMPORTANT: YA author Maureen Johnson is raising money for Shelterbox, because of all those aforementioned crazy things going on in the world right now. Donate! Win books! Read about her Last Little Shelter Box campaign here. I've been helping her tally up the donations, so I can confirm that in addition to the $6000 raised by 8 p.m. yesterday (enough for SIX shelters), we already have enough for a SEVENTH shelter as of this morning.
Tonight's TV picks: Vampire Diaries! Season finale (already?) of Royal Pains! Also, Community, Fairly Legal, Parks and Rec, The Mentalist. Yes, Bones is off this week.
A Battlestar Galactica roller coaster. One assumes it crashes and burns at the end of the ride.
Reagan endorses Barbour. 2012 is going to be SO MUCH FUN, you guys.
A new site you should be following: Lady Journos!
SyFy has a cooking show? I'm just . . . I don't even know.
Cornish pasty wins protected status from European commission. OH THANK GOODNESS.
Little Italy: much less Italian.Posted by Kat at February 24, 2011 06:54 AM
