This and That

Just some stuff I've been thinking and reading about:

  • Oprah has caused a shortage of Kindles.  So don't even think of giving one for Christmas if you haven't already purchased it.
  • Auditions for the YouTube symphony orchestra are being accepted.
  • Truman is getting to be a Big Dog:truman (Thanks for the picture dad!)
  • Lost Oscar Wilde manuscripts and letters have been found.  Scholars, start your engines ...
  • I'm laughing at Pride and Prejudice as reported by the characters in their Facebook updates.  (There's one for Hamlet too.  But the idea of Jane Austen and her VERY social characters on facebook just strikes me as funnier.)
