America’s 25 most expensive restaurants. This is absurd… as the editor said, I can’t imagine why anyone would pay upwards of $1000 for a single meal. Everyone’s got their thing to splurge on, I guess, but… what a waste!

DC Earthquake Devastation. I admit, I was cracking up at everyone’s response to the earthquake in VA yesterday, just like the rest of the silly Californians. I realize they are no joke, but I suppose living on the West Coast has desensitized me. Glad everyone is ok, though the Washington Monument may be cracked (super sad).

Hunger Games footage will premiere at the VMAs! I’m so excited for this. Have to remind myself to set my DVR.

These ‘hoot’ owl vases are cute cute cute. They’re also very out of stock, thanks to a cheap price &  the magic of Pinterest!

I just discovered Chipotle serves breakfast burritos at their location in my hometown airport, Dulles Intl Airport! We’ve got an early morning flight booked out of Dulles after Christmas, so I think I know what we’ll be doing that morning…

The Money Diaries: The 20-something with two jobs who’s still living paycheck-to-paycheck. Ack. This made me kind of sick reading the way people rationalize overspending without saving a penny. What makes me sicker is that this was me at one point, in my younger years!

RA-RA-RA-Ron Paul keeps rising in the polls! 

4 secrets for longer life : eat well, move often, don’t smoke, drink a little. And be happy (that’s my addition).

Funny drunken hand-drawn infographics 

Did you know Charlie Bucket from the original Willy Wonka film (aka Peter Ostrum) grew up not to be an actor, but a large animal vet?

Kittywood Studios Incorporated! This is really funny. “We need another Maru video before his contract expires.” If only there were such a thing. At least we know there is a market…?

    Dear Blogger, I like your blog and love the pic of the little owls and howled at the Kittywood vid, so I nominated you for the Versatile Blogger Award for this reason in my post:
    I don’t think the prize money is very good, but hey, an award is an award!
    Kind regards,
    Deirdre / Minlit
