PRICKLIES: (source)

SKYFALL: Dress the part(s).

I WANT: I fully realize just how big of a geek this makes me look, but I don't care. These. Are. Cool.

THIS IS HELPFUL: Although why anyone would ever want to do this is beyond my comprehension. Kidding.

DAME JUDY THEN AND WOW: Grace and class.

She is one of my favorites. Always has been.

SITE OF THE DAY: Gabble. It's something new from Peter Gabriel. It's a social media site based entirely on images, not words. Worth a look.

FIRST-WORLD PROBLEM OF THE DAY: I don't even have the energy to bust out the tiny violin.

DOUCHEBAG OF THE DAY: This father. And, frankly, anyone else who have helped create the unfortunate reality that nobody anywhere can have any fun ever again due to litigious asshats like them.
