Good. Now I will be forced to bury myself in DT prep all day. But first, a couple of Do Not Go Here sites (again, I disavow any responsibility for your wasted morning):
1. Letters of Note is a huge collection of actual correspondence from various famous people, photographed and submitted. Very interesting. Some are hilarious (make sure to read the “Tiger Oil” memos), others heartbreaking; they’re all quite revealing. Prepare to waste some time. It’s Angry Birds all over again.
2. I saw a link to this site on the Facebook page of one of my former students. I laughed. Surviving the World will spin some clock for you, Jimbo. Guaranteed. If you can get through all 855 “lessons,” you have my respect (I especially like Lesson #49, heh).
There. That ought to get you started on your Wednesday. Me? I’m off to the kitchen for some breakfast, then to the basement with my tap shoes. Maybe I should wait till the Thriller wakes up, though.
I have to say that I enjoyed the “Freshman Fifteen.” Fantastic.
RE: Surviving the World #5 – he needs to have another line for Musician right above “sex tape” that reads:
Cheesy talent show winner + ProTools
I failed to take your “letters of note” warning seriously…and now my eyes are about to fall out.
I think Marlon Brando writes the best letters.
HA – did you love his letter to Charlie Sheen? Awesome.
