Saturday Morning Quiz Stomping: Monday Sans Quiz Edition
Hmm... it's been a while since I've collected these. Others post their Twitter feeds in a bunch. I collect my Facebook Status Updates. Well, some of them, the funny ones, more or less. This is so long, I may break it up and post another batch more quickly...
Baron Dave Romm...
,,, answers the question, "How many different places can he file CDs by Beth Kinderman & the Player Characters", with the result being "3, so far".
... Mene mene Facebook upharsin. I now have 666 Facebook Friends. To Pat Robertson and his ilk who believe such numberology to be important, I say: Thbpbpbpbpbpbpbpbp. I wouldn't trade any of my Friends for all of yours.
... sings, "I come to iWrite it wealthily on iPadua..." But I'm still not going to get v. 1.0 of anything.
My celebrity is doppleganger is the special effects/makeup department, who can make anyone look like me. And does so, by special request, for my Facebook icon. A pretty close match, eh?
People have said my doppleganger is Maggie Gyllenhaal, so I changed my icon to that of Maggie, as rendered by John Caglione Jr. (Oscar nominee for making Heath Ledger look like the Joker). Frankly, I don't see it.
My celebrity doppleganger is Ben Franklin. Since no contemporaneous photos exist, Franklin has been reimagined by JJ Abrams for my icon. Thanks JJ, I owe you one.
The #1 song on the day I was born was "The Ballad of Davy Crockett", claims my mother (the 'being born' part, not the song part). The #1 song on the approx. day I was toilet trained was "Tammy" by Debbie Reynolds, but some might argue for a later date and a different song. Frankly, I don't remember either song influencing either event. But you never know.
... saw a shadow but no groundhog. Does this mean we're in for six more weeks of Cheshire Cat?
Conan gets booted for Leno. The groundhog sees its shadow (in some places). Lost starts its final (?) season. A Republican wins Teddy Kennedy's Senate seat. Facebook "simplifies" its homepage into incomprehensibility. Coincidence? I think not.
... thought The Who at the Superbowl did an okay job playing Rock Star with all those CSI theme songs. Give them bonus points though: No wardrobe malfunctions, and Sarah Palin was momentarily displaced as top getter of derisive laughter.
Unconfirmed, and probably a joke, from a New Orleans cab driver: The Astrodome in Houston uses Astro Turf. What do they call the artificial grass in the New Orleans Superdome? (answer later, in comments) Mardi Grass
Now that we're safely past Valentine's Day, an xkcd blast from the past
... just got his Spring hair cut/beard trim. Okay, the weather can warm up to conform to my facial hair. Thanks.
If corporations are people, can they get married even if they're the same sex?
,,, just found a long-missing sock in An Unlikely Place. A pair reunited! A small victory that bodes well for the Pool Party.

A PayPal-like transaction system for Facebook. If anyone wants to send me money for pointing to this link.. mail me the cash. BBC News - Money sharing comes to Facebook
... and stay off of my lawn! Four seconds of geezer humor
, gleaned from cousin Jenny Lipow . Previous batch
from January... I'll do the next batch sooner.
