Other fun tidbits to make the days (or nights) go by faster:
The Evolution of Dance reminds me a bit of that ZeFrank’s classic How to Dance Properly… but all that seems like baby steps to the video goodness that is The Show.
Keep on, keep on, keep on, keep on dancing all through the night.

More reason to think Colbert has stones, and a fine t-shirt to commemorate the roast only bloggers talk about.
In related and hopeful news, maybe they’ll make a Gay Merit Badge for blogging one day (thanks AJ)

After 3 hours waiting in the ER and then staring up at this drop ceiling, I am 7 stitches stronger and typing really slow after a mishap with a (brittle) drinking glass in sudsy dishwater.

The aftermath, for those that don’t faint at the sight of stitches… really
