Horribly Awesome

Best pie chart ever.

If you have no idea what the graph is referring to, then you need to view Dr. Horrible's Sing-Along Blog. I was lucky enough to see it when it was free, but now you'll either have to 1) find a pirated copy, 2) buy it from iTunes, or 3) wait for it to come out on DVD. I think you'll be pleased whatever route you choose.

I want a post-apocalyptic bookmobile!

Who wouldn't want to watch a educational sci-fi video series from 1985 about library skills?!

All videos can be accessed on YouTube. And there is more info on Wikipedia.

It is 2123 and everyone on Earth is leaving, in order to escape "the Wipers." All human knowledge has been collected (and organized) for preservation in the ultimate library (gee, the Dewey Decimal System really CAN catalog everything!). But one book has gone missing and Ms. Bookhart goes in search of it. Hijinks, suspended animation, and library skills education ensue.

"Put it on microfilm and file it..."

See food?

You know how when you're hungry, you keep revisiting the fridge and freezer to see if something new and more appetizing has appeared since the last time you checked? Yeah? Never works, does it?

It works even less when you investigate an unfamiliar ziploc bag from the freezer and (re)discover the pet fish that died last month.

Adding "bury Gibby" to the to do list. And avoiding the deep freeze for the rest of the night.
