September 21st, outsourced

I don't know what's cooler: that the cast of The West Wing got together to make this ad, or that I got to hear what "Bridget" sounds like when they say it. [HT Andrew]

Remember Caine's Arcade? Here's Part 2. [HT Kathy/Katie]

A British soldier had a baby while on duty in Afghanistan.

The school year in Syria has begun.

"I know it can be challenging to wake each morning, covered in your own feces and refuse, and get back out there on the streets to beg for spare change and food scraps, always one step from dying right there in an alley." The Onion at its best. [HT Eric D. Snider]

Is lying in bed with your eyes closed as restorative as sleep?

Thirteen powerful images of what Newsweek called "Muslim Rage." [HT Andrew]

I read this last Friday afternoon and I can't believe I successfully waited a whole week to share it with you: Adaptation Deathmatch - Pride & Prejudice. Such a fun read!

First of all, Josh and Toby look OLD. But that was a great campaign ad.

Second of all, I feel awesome. Goal fulfilled.

Wow! West Wing campaign ad! Amazing! I'm with Kate though Josh is not aging so well. Everyone else looked ok but poor Josh :(

My favorite quote from the P&P Deathmatch is: "Macfadyen, don't you have a valet? Who owns a comb? And a razor? What are you DOING with that 10,000 a year?"

Because everyone who's anyone knows that Darcy has $10,000 a year!
