Sunday roundup

From Ellie: 15 Things You’ll Never Hear me Say and Ten Things You’ll Never Hear Me Say (again):

I’m normally one of those “never say never” kind of people, but there comes a time when the Anvil of Truth lands on your head and your realize some things in life have an exasperation date.

From Karan: the cuteness that is Meez.com. I signed up and started creating but just couldn’t stay “logged in” long enough to produce anything. Probably just as well. I don’t think the world is ready for Meez-Daisy.

From Mary, a gorgeous dog and our quote of the day:

And from Joan, Don’t be Stealing my Wheels

For all I know the person living in this traditional college party apartment building needs the wheelchair and the bike and the snorkling flippers. I don’t know. I am sorry if he/she does. What I do know is that when I googled “wheelchair theft hospital” 769,000 entries showed up. Aaargh!

And finally

This is silly but rather clever. If you type http://xxx.justgotowned.com/ (substitute the xxx with your name, make it xxx.xxx if it’s two words such as mad.musings) you’ll get a generated flash movie featuring your good self. To whit: daisy just got owned.
