Woe to the fucking wicked.

Bad musicians! Even if you, personally, lack forethought, surely you have an SO who will point out obvious things like that.

Let that be a warning to all SOs of musicians.

Now I need to figure out what I want to eat.

Without a plan, it turns out, a lot of decisions are really hard. Eliot might actually hate his shrink. Yes, Eliot is getting healthier or whatever, but at what cost? He used to be a mess of scar tissue and substance abuse, but he could get dressed in the morning without an existential crisis.

A lot of April Fool's website jokes aren't funny. However, The Manolo, he has been taken over by The Lagerfeld....

Also, Astronomy Picture of the Day has a picture of American astronauts beating the Russians at Quidditch.

The evil is this way?

teevee.org is having some April Fool's Day fun. They're tweaking shows like "Supernatural", "Doctor Who", "Firefly" (or at least Joss), etc. Cute

Days shrink and grow cold, sunlight through leaves is my song. Winter is long.

Before 30? Woo!

Just for those who miss it, I'll bring in Holli's inflatable couch (mind the cigarettes!) and Xander's disco ball. Who's got the bar? Somebody who knows beer besides Guinness bring in a case or two, okay? I've got Grey Goose and Oban, and surely somebody schlepped the glassware from the last time we did this.

Comfy chair!

Kathy, your tagline (yay!) reminds me of the genie in Aladdin.

And, okay, girl-wonder.org is just freaking brilliant today. (Check out the forums, too!)

Wait, is this real-world child support, where the money goes to buy food for the kids, or MRA fantasyland child support where the women just buy Ferraris and cocaine? -Jessica

Hey, I just found out that the Gap has a preemie line!

Everything is soft cotton, with no scratchy bits, kimono-style so that tubes and such won't be disrupted. Everything looks sooper-cuddly.

Wow. That's cool and a little bit freaky at the same time. That there'd be that big a need, I mean.

Have you seen the wee ones, Allyson? Can you give an adorableness update?

Woe to the fucking wicked.

Brenda, it's interesting: in a couple of my classes (when I was a student) we talked about how one of the major offshoots of modern medicine was an increase in the number of preemies, as kids who wouldn't have survived a decade or two ago now did.

Of course, it would be better if more of them were carried to term, but, really, I tend to think of it as a net win.

If that makes it less freaky to think about.
