Silly Site o' the Day

Now that both the Olympics and the Muppet movie are long behind us, I can run this bit...

Via The Mary Sue. Yeah, you got me, I'm still way behind in my reading...

Silly Site o' the Day

For some reason I've had a hankering for pizza all day. There aren't any good, cheap pizza places by my office any more. It may be because all the pizza is now found in the wild (via Wil Wheaton).

Silly Site o' the Day

We're visiting Mom today, in the former Land of Dial-Up, to help her with her new wifi and iPad. And we brought along my laptop as well just in case, so I can blog from here now!

Have at it, Mom!
