Actually, that last one is probably true.
If I had any legitimate HTML skilz, I would redesign my blog to look like a British tabloid and every post would have a sensational title.
Do those come standard with the car?
"Hey, what should we name this elephant?"
"Not sure. It should be a name that recalls the majesty and power of the elephant. Something that harkens to its native and exotic territory."
"Right. And whatever we name it, it should not be something that 13-year-old English boys will laugh at."
"Definitely. Hey, I think I've come up with the perfect name."
I always appreciate outside-the-box thinking. So how could I not be a fan of a guy who runs a church that doubles as an auto-parts store?
Ugh. So, just this once they (the ubiquitous "they") managed to not screw up an Americanized version of a British show and it was actually worth watching. So worth watching, it turns out, that it appears most Americans are too stupid to watch it and it is likely to be cancelled. Damnit. This is going to put a serious dent in my fantasies about Pam.
Of local interest -- another desperate attempt to make Minneapolis hipper than it actually is by reporting on the Minneapolis scene. The blog says "Twin Cities," but St. Paul is usually wholesale ignored by these kinds of things. If you live in St. Paul, you may as well live in Moscow, as far as the Minneapolis-St. Paul scenesters are concerned. Our restaurants are better, our downtown is more attractive, our drivers aren't shit and we've got lower crime -- clearly we are very uncool.
