Neil Gaiman's Xmas by 39 Degrees North
Merry Christmas to those who are celebrating! And a very Happy Weekend to the rest! Despite being Jewish, I miss Christmas, and being in Israel, I feel unashamed at saying so. It’s like I don’t have to be vigilant in guarding my religious traditions by not celebrating others’. I made egg nog, and I found Christmas carols (love the #christmas tag-tuner), and we hung some fairy lights, and we ate a Bouche de Noel (French Yule Log Cake) and a Galette des Rois (Cake of the Kings – another French tradition).
AND these videos were the life of the party and made my week that much easier. I think they capture the spirit. If you have a few minutes, they’re intriguing or inspiring or hilarious. Enjoy!
Neil Gaiman Christmas poem. WOW:
Trouble with your Blackberry?
Yoga has been so underrepresented on Broadway:

Just a quicky – I’m in the “final” stages of my personal statement for grad school. But I have seen some joyous hilarious videos lately, and I wanted to share! Happy weekend!
Ah… memories of summer on this cold winter night from the lovely awesome people at Improv Everywhere:
This is old, but I only saw it recently. Enjoy David Beckham playing a prank on the Ellen Show:
Finally, another great product we all need. Treat your breasts! A brilliant stocking stuffer! Wink, wink…

I googled, “cheer me up.” Here’s what I got:
ZYRA - Badum, dum...tsss
I am horrified by google, the internet, and humanity in general at the moment. How can an internet search of the words “cheer me up” be such a dud? Perhaps that’s the joke? The results are so ludicrous that they by default cheer up the searcher?
I digress. I’m not having a great morning. Lots of work things have left me in a foul, anxious, borderline sort of mood. On a whim I googled “cheer me up”. Let me share my results with you:
- The Official ZYRA Website – a truly bizarre low-tech compilation of lists, research, and encyclopedic factoids. It looks like a fantasy site, something out of a messed-up comic book world. Scary.
- The Official Jokes Thread…on a forum on East Asian Horror and Cult Cinema – the funniest thing about this site is that all the jokes are being told by someone sporting a profile pic of a Japanese schoolgirl in uniform.
- Yahoo! Answers – a depressed British schoolgirl weeps about her misery, and receives a slew of answers…
- Some Jewish Blog in Boulder, CO – and the telling of a stupid Barrack Obama joke.
It just occurred to me that I’m doing these websites a favor by actually linking back to their silly/stupid/boring content. Enjoy the weirdness, if you dare…
