And Oh Yeah, Some Links

I can't tell if I am repulsed or intrigued by the idea of this fake jellyfish tank. I love looking at jellyfish, but I just don't know that this would do it for me. Plus, it's expensive. Plus, it's kind of chintsy, right?

My friend Erin is a really good poet. I have forced her to email me her poems for years now, and she is currently getting her masters in poetry (well, writing in general, I think...but she's a poet). Anyway, she's really talented, and her poems always rub me just the right way, and I usually feel smarter having read them. Reading poetry is a "smart" thing, right? Just kidding. I love me some e. e. cummings like the best literary snobs. That's not the point though. The point is that Erin is a wonderful poet, and her poetry is now available online HERE - through at-large magazine. Just click on POETRY and then E.C. MESSER [Why Captain, I had no idea.] This issue is the "Jungle" issue, though I'm not sure what that refers to (even after reading the blurb on the homepage). Maybe Erin can elaborate in a comment.

This might be one of the funniest twitters Dooce has ever twittered.

There is so much I want to do in San Francisco. I'm going to have to start scheduling things in, so I don't waste away my weekends puttering around the house.

Oh my lord, The Laptop Compubuddy Sleeve. Holy Crap. Trust me, you will want to click here and check this out. This is one of those "a picture's worth a thousand words" cases.

I really enjoyed this Leah Garchik column...sometimes I really wish I could go to one of these fashiony things, just to check 'em out.


  1. intrigued and repulsed, mostly repulsed.

  2. i just taught kids about ctenophora today--stinger-less comb jellies. they leave a slimy residue on your skin and feel like snot. i don't have a whole lot of respect for the grace of jellyfish.

  3. Thanks for the linking! :) I'm not sure I can totally illuminate the "Jungle Issue," eh, issue...but since this is At-Large Magazine's first issue, I think the idea is that they publish new, bold, somehow-exploratory work. Plus it should make ya purrrr!
