Links from others! Thanks, everyone.

From Holly: Let's go zorbing!

From Satori: "North Dakota is actually DEBATING a 1889 law that lists opposite sex, non-married adults that are living together as sex offenders."

From the Graveworm: yet another weird UFO-like sighting.

Some interactive fun today: create your own personal M&M. I tried to make an M&M that looked like me, but ended with a really weird-looking creature that I hope does not resemble me. Also, the Graveworm, Bunny and I had some fun the other day with this test which purports to give you an idea of how inclined you might be toward autism - the average score is about 16, while most people diagnosed with autism score at least 32. Bunny and the Graveworm got very low scores; I got a 21. Hmph.

And lastly, if you've been procrasting on that genealogy project, Geni may be what you've been waiting for! It's brand new (and therefore a little buggy), but looks promising.

Have a spiffy weekend, everyone. See you Monday.

I saw the Zorbs on the Amazing Race! I so want to do it... The only US location is in Austin.

Hmm, I got a 23 on the Autism scale... I'm actually not that surprised because of my OC stuff, my weird blocks with phone numbers and birthdays, and the damned "Irish Storytelling" genes. LOL.

Did you notice the name of the psychologist who put that autism test together? Simon Baron-Cohen.

Sounds suspiciously like the man behind Borat to me.

BTW, I scored a 19, for those of you keeping score at home.

At risk of labeling myself as something I'm not...or, perhaps just wish to not be labeled as...I scored a freakin' 34 on the damned autism test.

Methinks it may be a wee bit defective, mates.

Or maybe that's just me.
