С днём рождения

Happy Birthday Katya and Alexis! (I think I got this right--sorry it's so late in the day, though).

I have nothing to offer you but links. Everyone has crushes on Maria Bamford, and perhaps you will, too, after watching her show on SuperDeluxe:

It's the Maria Bamford show!

Quote from the guy installing my bamboo flooring:

"Do you know what a baby panda smells like?

This wood--when you cut it. It's somewhat exotic...but in a way, it's not."

I don't know him well enough to know his intentions behind this statement, but this is the funniest thing I've heard all day.

While I'm quoting, here are two quotes from moms on Britney's VMA performance:

J's mom [paraphrased]: "She was either really, really drunk, or she was just so nervous that... she got really, really drunk to calm her nerves."

my mom: "She's just really lost her confidence! And, well, that was all she ever had!"
