* This is just really fun: watch celebrity babies morph into their future selves. It's all forensic and sh*t!
* The Onion: Wikipedia Celebrates 750 Years of US Independence.
* Sarah Brown's Cringe Reading Series to be filmed by Nightline next week! AHHHHH!!!
* This is a few days old but if you hate Nancy Grace with the same violent-fantasy-inducing passion that I do, you'll love watching Elizabeth Smart roll her eyes at her and put her in her place. (But it will still make you mad.)
* Breaking bad habits with rubber band aversion therapy. This reminds me of the time one of my friends broke up with some asshole in college. Like most girls with long hair, this friend always wore a ponytail holder on her right wrist. We were sitting at a coffee shop and she said "It's just that I still think about him all the time."
"Are you thinking about him right now?" I asked. "Yeah." she said. So I reached over, grabbed the ponytail holder, and snapped it back.
Hey, they never got back together and she's now happily engaged, with a new baby. Point: aversion therapy works (except when applied to my nailbiting.)
* My friend John Green, who is kind of a totally huge deal in the world of Young Adult books (and in my life, aww) humorously answers questions about "The OC"'s Josh Schwartz's upcoming movie version of John's first book, Looking For Alaska, and about The Problem of (Hollywood) Evil. (Incidentally, I just finished John's second book, An Abundance of Katherines, which comes out in September and is awesome, but it will have it's own gushy post closer to the pub date.)
