+ Green Day’s "Awesome as ****" live album lives up to the title and is awesome as…. I’ve got the new Soundgarden and Panic! albums to listen to, too, now, based on The Biochemist’s recommendations. Tuesday really was Super Tuesday in terms of music releases, wasn’t it?
+ The US-Spain Davis Cup tie will be played in Austin! Road trip! Tickets go on sale April 4th. As soon as prices and availability are released, I’ll be number crunching the budget to see how much PBJ I’ll be eating to go :)
+ Dear Big Name NY Pubbed Romance Author: what the hell is "desert-style zero-scaping"? Do you mean xeriscaping?
+ RIP Elizabeth Taylor. I didn’t really *get* you as an actress, but I appreciated your Hollywood Grande Dame status and your AIDS charity work. Your jewelry was pretty cool, too.
+ Galley Cat linked to this essay about being a book hoarder, which makes me stop and take stock. Because I do have a hard time letting go of any book once it has made its way onto a shelf in my home or office. Except maybe statutory supplements that are updated annually, it’s easy to dump them in the office library’s recycling bin.
+ It’s ridiculous how appreciation for a particular actor will make you watch a television show that is otherwise not to your taste. For instance, I try to watch Mr. Sunshine sometimes because I ♥ Allison Janey.
+ I’ve now given up Chick-Fil-A’s sweet tea and waffle fries because of this. (Courtesy of @redrobinreader, after I mentioned that I liked the tea but not the non-stop christian pop.) They were my "errands done" reward. CFA won’t miss the little bit of revenue I put in their pockets nearly as much as I’ll miss the sweet tea (why do so few places serve it and even fewer make it right?), I’m sure.
+ Daffodils are blooming everywhere. Which means spring is here. But is also awesome just because daffodils are such happy, cheerful flowers.
