divineway points out that you can now buy Sean Bean's underwear and support cancer research at the same time. The autograph is a little smudgy so maybe they've been worn! Various people have sent me links to a pirated Asian copy of The Two Towers with hilarious captions!

The New York Times has an interesting, sad article about architectural plans for Ground Zero.

I have no idea how this happened:

Which New Romantic Icon Are You?

My kids had no school yesterday so I had what is known as a "low-key" day (which around here means going out for bagels with my mother, doing some necessary shopping chores like tracking down shampoo -- I'm allergic to so many that this always requires a trip to The Cosmetic Center or someplace like that -- doing laundry, trying frantically to get some work done, etc. I was in a terrible mood but ashinae, viva_gloria and divineway saved me (I have no doubt that cinzia would have done so as well if she had instant message capabilities -- we need to get her AIM ASAP). Today my kids are off again so we are all going out to lunch again, then getting together with friends. I wish it were warm enough to go to the park for some significant period of time.

If You're Happy And You Know It Bomb Iraq

Quick addendum: I paid more attention to Smallville than I did to the State of the Union (even Ken Biller can't disgust me as much as Bush's domestic agenda). Without giving anything away, let me just say: you know the thing we all got to see everyone do in the various flashback-speculation? I really, really wanted to get to see Martha do it, too. It was refreshing to watch Jonathan, Lex, the sheriff, etc. get their turns, even if most of them weren't real, but seeing Martha do it would have been fantastic. And she has as much motive as Jonathan.
