May 23rd, outsourced

Disney princesses and political science. Pure. Genius.

What is YA literature? Here is an excellent response to that question.

Ken Jennings blogged about the behind-the-scenes stuff at the Jeopardy! Battle of the Decades tournament. So did this other lovely person.

Here are some interesting tidbits about Dubai, as shared by an architecture professor at UAE University.

Oh. My gosh. There is a show called "I Wanna Marry Harry" which is awful, but the Fug Girls did a recap of it, which is HILARIOUS.

Why do people persist in believing things that simply aren't true? Science and research have some answers for us, but they are still kind of frustrating. [HT Liz]

You guys, Newsies has been a part of my life too long for me to objectively know if it is actually any good. So while I enjoyed this video of BYU's Vocal Point singing and dancing to it, YMMV.

I could not help but laugh: 23 People You Know Are Dead Now.

And finally, 28 Struggles Only Hijabis Will Understand.

I cannot believe that I am almost 33 years old and have never seen Newsies.

And that Fug recap was HILARIOUS. My favorite snort-laugh part was "I wanna borrow Zorro."

I really loved the Disney thing, too, particularly the Mulan bit. I could totally see that happening.

We laughed and laughed during 23 people you know are dead. We felt totally bad about it but just kept laughing.

I tried to do some shopping at Kohls this week, looking for Sunday outfits for myself (so sick of the same 2 skirts I own!). I can relate to some of the hijabi concerns. "Random see-thru parts for no reason!" kept going through my head. It's hard to find clothes with a modest enough neckline, sleeves, non-see-thru sleeves, long enough hem lengths, etc. I can't stand layering because it makes me hot and sweaty. The shopping trip was a dud...back to the same skirt and shirt 'selection' for church tomorrow. :-P

Thanks for the mention. Also, I love Vocal Point.
