Holiday fun

Well, I don't expect to be hanging around these parts pumping out coherent thoughts over the next few day, but I thought maybe I could share a heap of amusing and diverting links of the sort useful for providing distraction from family goings-on... Enjoy!
  • From the Department of Why, we have some slightly creepy stuffed hands to comfort your baby in the crib. (via mimi smartypants)

  • From the Department of Fab, we have The Executive Coloring Book, giving a glimpse of life under The Man. (via coworker LP)

  • Tired of the same old things? Try a pinball game from the ball's perspective. Nothing will ever look the same. (via boing boing)

  • If that doesn't do it, try reprogramming your brain with one of these crazy Japanese watches, each of which seems to use a new and different way to display time. (via boing boing)

  • Where youse from? Take this very brief American accent locator to find out. Surprisingly accurate. (via PhillyFuture)

  • Buffy fans might get a kick out of this study of the population dynamics of vampires (PDF)... (via no_nym at Bitch, Ph.D)

  • And finally, in honor of the season (and more for the cuteness than the guilt), here's a cute baby turkey photo. (via Cute Overload)
hand turkey!
Happy Thanksgiving!

That is a surprisingly accurate accent test! Pegged me accurately. (The last one of those I took labeled me a Southerner.)

Hi! My name is Erin Chaves and I am contacting you to find out what advertising/sponsorship opportunities may exist on your blog. I am in the process of promoting the services of a prominent hair restoration doctor in Philadelphia. He has an excellent reputation and has performed more than 6,000 hair transplants.
I am reaching out to prominent local bloggers in order to promote and receive feedback on the client’s website. I am interested in the following opportunities, and am open to hearing your suggestions for other arrangements:
Review of the site and offerings, with a link, for a one-time fee (250 words or greater).
· Sponsoring a few of your posts (we pay a one-time fee for you to mention, with a link, in a few posts that the doctor sponsored them).
· Mini-banner or sidebar links paid 6 months up-front.
Please let me know your thoughts on how this could work for you. If you have pricing in mind already, definitely let me know. I am eager to have a chance to catch the interest of your audience and support a great blog.
Please contact me at erin.chaves[@]gmail.com. Thanks!
