December 9th, outsourced

OK, I actually hate Wheel of Fortune, which maybe is why I laughed at these poor, inept contestants.

Hooray, a spoiler-free review of Downton Abbey Season 2, from Ken Jennings of all people. OF COURSE it's good.

WHY DO WE STILL HAVE PENNIES???????

Literary genre translations from McSweeney's.

Have you ever wanted to explore the demographics of word usage on Twitter? Well, here you go!

Chocolate Peanut Butter Pie was my Friday treat this week, and it was GOOD.

And that's all I have for you this week. I spent three whole mornings in UAE government ministries this week (Ministry of Foreign Affairs on Monday, Ministry of Higher Education and Scientific Research in Abu Dhabi on Tuesday, and the SDNR on Wednesdsay) so I wasn't able to click on all the good stuff out there.

Just before I came to this post, I read another blog and FB link about the silly fatwa about women and cucumbers and bananas so I won't tell you what I saw at first when you exclaimed about why we still have pennies.

Haha. And you better believe that upon reading your comment, I rushed to check that I didn't have an embarrassing typo in that particular part of the post. :)

Those literary translations are GENIUS. Especially the young adult and magical realism ones.
