Hi there. This is me as one of Gwen Stefani's Harajuku Girls. (I didn't have a lot of clothing options, which is why I look rather pastel.) Make your own paper doll version! (Click on "paper dolls" in the bottom left corner of the page.)

More interactive fun: how well do you know the movies of the past 25 years? I got a 76.

From Cassandra: Benign Girl! How...bland.

From Courtney: the amazing 3-D sidewalk art of Julian Beever.

As seen on PCJM: Christmas catalogs from times gone by. I remember getting Service Merchandise catalogs and poring over them.

As seen on Deadspin: Behold, St. Louis has a Rally Squirrel! I think the Reds need some sort of rally mascot for next year. Or, at the very least, they need a mascot that keeps the bullpen from imploding during the eighth inning of every single game.

Have a spiffy weekend, everyone! See you Monday.

I got a 57 on the movie quiz.

I am appalled that you would contribute to the sinister conspiracy that keeps Gwen Stefani's name in lights.

Aw, Gwen's not so bad, compared to her peers. At least she's not in rehab.

Talk about your low bars!

No Doubt was an inoffensive band, but Gwen, in her latest incarnation, bugs me. I have to say this has nothing to do with her music -- I don't know any of her new stuff (does she have any?) -- and has everything to do with appearing to be like all of those other people who do nothing but jump in front of cameras so they can star in the grocery store checkout lines.
