*gen - tiffany

A big bucket of randomness.

Feeling better tonight. I did some grocery shopping at Trader Joe's and queued up a bunch of stuff on the TiVo. And last night I got a fic plot bunny that has me really excited. Fortunately, my woeful moods pass quickly. And here are some links:

-- Slate asks which catchphrases should be thrown "under the bus"?
-- Dark Roasted Blend lists the weirdest examples of mass hysteria.
-- Salon interviews an expert about premium coffee and Fair Trade.
-- AfterEllen examines the women of Mad Men.
-- Earworm alert! Vulture is horrified by the trailer for Beverly Hills Chihuahua.
-- Potential controversy alert! Newsweek wonders who says kids make you happy?
-- The NYT profiles swimmer Dara Torres, who's in the Olympic trials at age 41.
-- RealSimple lists new uses for aluminum foil.
-- If you're in Scranton next month, you can join Mindy Kaling at The Office Olympics.
-- Aww. Thanks to hi-def, TV armoires are becoming obsolete.

And a rather appropriate one for the linkspams: Slate analyzes how we read online. Yeah, I recognized myself in a few of those. ;)
