"It's hard to think that the most testosterone-driven program in television history is introduced by 'Jessica', by the Allman Brothers. And that's the most interesting fact... in the world."

I got a letter addressed to "Noëlle" today. Gotta love character-encoding failures.

Does anyone out there own a copy of Blue's Blues: Blue's Birthday Adventure? There's two things I'm interested in.
1) Which cover variant you have. There seem to be at least two versions of the cover and disc art, I'm trying to figure out which one is a reprint. Mine has a closed thinking pad and bichromatic discs, I'm also seeing copies with an open thinking pad and monochromatic discs.

Can today be a day where we are kind to each other?

I'd like that.

It's weird that "The Social Network" is now almost twice as old as Facebook was when "The Social Network" came out.

The only thing I'm going to say about this: if you're going to stay friends with harmful people because "it's the only way to get them to change", you have to actually try to convince them to change. If you aren't actively, vocally pushing back on their harmful behaviors, then you're not trying to get them to change, you're providing reinforcement that what they're doing is okay, and people are going to be in the right to not stay friends with you because your behavior - tolerating the harm your friends are doing - is itself harmful.
