1. SHR is in Cannes and I miss her. She sent me an e-mail the other day that read:
Tried to take a quick cat nap at the hotel but the world bowls championship was on and I got hooked. Google that - it's like bocce and boules but not. Lots of cute little dogs but that also means lots of little poops everywhere.
I did check it out. Looks awesome but I couldn't find any video of it.
2. Slice sent this e-mail around on Friday.
On Slate today:
I met a great guy at a board-game party, and we really hit it off. There was a lot of one-on-one interaction, joking, and flirtation between the two of us. When he knew the answers, he'd whisper them to me, when I knew, I'd whisper them to him, our knees and arms were touching most of the night, and he even grasped my hand at one point. My two girlfriends even noticed, and after we'd left, they said that the flirtation was completely mutual. The guy came with us to the door when we left, and asked if I had any plans for the rest of the weekend. I said I didn't. I was sure he was going to ask for my number or suggest plans for later, but he didn't (granted, the window of time was not enormous as I headed out the door), and I'm really disappointed. I'm 26, so I've had my share of dating experiences, and I've concluded I generally like for the guy to take the initiative in the beginning. Is this misguided? I just think I've gotten better results when the guy takes the lead (or at least thinks he does!). Is there any way to still salvage this initial spark?

Hmmmm ... was this at Balgavy's board game party or are board game parties spreading all over this great city of ours?
3. I decided to give Breaking Bad another shot and now I'm hooked.
4. For all the haters out there, this is for you. Thanks for the link Josh.
5. Welcome Hot Tub Eric to the world of blogs and such.
6. Dick Cheney looks even scarier in HD than he does in standard definition. HD sure highlights the menacing.
7. A number of my students held a bakesale at a local farmer's market on Saturday and raised a little over 300 hundred dollars to donate to the Obama campaign. They were kicked out for not having the proper permit and were told by the person doing the kicking that he didn't support Obama anyway. This didn't stop my students from giving him a homemade Support Obama poster.
