Zergnet: Simply Irresistible
I absolutely love karaoking David Bowie songs. “Life on Mars” ranks highly, but nothing is quite amazing as “Space Oddity.” And now an illustrator named Andrew Kolb has made a picture book of the iconic song.

If he does, it will replace Goodnight Moon as the baby gift I always get for friends. Because planet earth is blue and there’s nothing I can do. [Laughing Squid] Keep reading »
Last week my friend Brittney invited me over to make friendship bracelets. When I got to her house, she dumped a pile of colorful yarn on the table, showed me the basic techniques, and we ended up sitting there for 3 hours, crafting and chatting and laughing.

Here are three ways to put this skull and
crossbones cross-utensils dinner plate to good use:
1.Mount it on the wall to add a little goth style to your kitchen.
2. If you are poisoning someone, serve them a big pile of food on this plate, wait until they’ve eaten enough to reveal the image, and then say, “Yeah I just poisoned you.”
3. Give it as a gift to a friend who has questionable cooking skills.
