Looking For A Few Good Links?

Then try these:
  • Serandez has posted two of the weirdest videos that I have ever seen. Click here to see how soccer teams in New Zealand psych themselves up before a game.
  • Cooking With Yiddishe Mama posts delicious recipes, in English and in Russian (I discovered the Yiddishe Mama through Ilana-Davita's blogroll.) This one, potato soup with smoked salmon, sounds like a perfect way to impress your guests on a cold winter day.
  • The failing economy is making it financially impossible for some couples to get divorced. According to this report, thousands of people are finding that they are trapped in unhappy marriages because they can't afford to pay a divorce lawyer, establish a new household, or split their marital property. What a nightmare. To have to stay in a marriage with a spouse that you can no longer stand is awful. Trust me, an unhappy marriage is its own special kind of hell.
  • On a lighter note, yet another celebrity baby is doomed to a lifetime of hating his idiot parents. Ashlee Simpson and Pete Wentz have named their new son Bronx Mowgli Wentz. Bronx. Bronx Wentz. BMW. No matter how you try it, it's a really stupid name.

Good night, all.

I guess they didn't want the name Brooklyn.
Thanks for the divorce tip. Israeli tv news announced that the financial situation will cause more divorce and suicide. You proved them wrong.

You are tagged. Please forgive me. It's not all that bad.

Mowgli, like in Tarzan?

If I ever have another kid, I think I'll name it Zimbabwe.

I think that when I have kids one day, Im going to give them crazy english names too.

Hah. Why can't they just stick with normal names, like the ones their parents gave them?

Mowgli is the main character of A Jungle Book.

And I LOVE watching Haka clips, they're GREAT!

Bronx Mowgli huh? Somewhere there is a psychologist rubbing his hands in glee at the money that's going to come some day down the road when this poor kid tries to figure out why his parents did this to him.

When I was little, my rather refined parents had us refer to Ye Olde Number 2 as a "b.m." - short for "bowel movement". "B.M. Wentz?" You're right - the kid's screwed.
