Update to The Pushup Project: Check out the saga of Charles Linster, who in 1965 achieved the world record for nonstop pushups by completing 6006 pushups before being forced to stop by the test administrator. Shortly thereafter, he broke his neck (his own, not the test administrator's) and became a paraplegic. The current record now stands at 10,507 (and no, I have no immediate plans to challenge that record, especially since I can only do 3 at this time.)
Blogs of Note
AmberBamberBoo has a blog all about being a mommy, which she makes sound interesting and fun -- quite an accomplishment. She's got about a million kids (okay, four, but it seems like more). My favorite entry is this one, which should get an award for "best use of photos to illustrate a post". (I would give second place to crabbymrbill for this one.)
The Adventures of a Snowball in Hell is another, slightly less joyful, mommy blog. In this case, she has divorced the father, and the most entertaining entries are about custody disputes with her bonehead ex. (Yes, this really is a cool blog.)
"I didn't get this job because of my looks."
What "Buffy" Character Are You?
I normally don't take online personality tests, but since this one related to Buffy, I made an exception. I don't think I'm anything like Wesley, though; he takes himself way too seriously. Also, I would never have run off with Angel's baby without first conferring with his colleagues. (from Arrrgh!!!)
Some analogies can get taken to far, whereas others, like this one, just keep getting better.
I have yet to see the final Matrix movie, but from what I've read, it pretty much sidesteps all the big questions. This site brings together a lot of ideas voiced in the newsgroups about what other more satisfying directions the finale could have incorporated. (from Widdershins)
