Beautiful Stuff I Can't Afford, No. 3

Today's BSICA is really not SO far out of reach, and is a little bit of a surprise to me, too. I'm not usually a person who gives much of a damn about purses, but then I found Cotton Candy Boutique on Etsy (DAMN YOU, ETSY!!!).

Fifty bucks each for these, which is really not much but still out of the range of conceivable for me for a damn purse. But still... sigh... Let me know if you get one so I can snuggle with it for a while, alright? I promise not to drool. Much.

Patrick McGoohan died on Tuesday at 80.

Mimi Smartypants

I forget how I found Mimi Smartypants, but I love her. I know next to nothing about who she really is, but I think we should be best friends, except I'm probably not smart or funny enough (and I don't and won't live in Chicago or like sports. C'est la vie). And just when I think it can't get much better than her, along comes her young daughter with a graphic novel entitled "The Ham Came to Life." (See the entry from 1/13/09 for that gem. See all other entries for constant fabulousness in the most delightfully nerdy and snarky way.)


Lot of "regular" folks are buying the new issue of Amazing Spider-Man today... because it has Obama in it.

But will they do that when Obama makes his first appearance in a This Modern World collection?


Ricardo Montalbán has died.

Interview with an Adware Author

Technically, I was working. But I actually encourage everyone to read this. It sort of wakes you up to the realities of malware and personal privacy, if you weren't awake already. An interesting look at how incidious software can be, and makes me consider switching to linux 100%.
