For those of you back to work today, hopefully I can give you some links to distract yourself with. For those of you that didn't have to return to work, well good for you, spend a while looking through my archives after you've finished this post.
I was having issues with my Twitter plugin and it has been missing for the last week. I had to replace it due to some weird compatibility issue with Wordpress 2.8, things are working now though and you can follow my Twitter activity from here again.
- The one decent article from CNN reviewing the year in celebrities.
- A Christmas kidnapping. Don't worry everything worked out fine. (I like the idea behind that blog)
- Bigger is always better when it comes to insulation.
- Rick Reilly discusses the many reasons to hate Tyler Hansbrough.
- A very interesting story about a college basketball player who lost her memory after colliding with a teammate.
- xkcd details the usefulness of time spent in 11th grade. This confirmed many of my suspicions.
- A series from NPR about the American spirit. Created by Ketzel Levine who was laid off during production. (Via Kottke)
- And finally in celebration of the end of the Holiday Season, here is a very cool display at Rainbow Foods captured by Erica over at fresh.mn.
As promised, I'll be giving you my 2009 Minnesota To-Do list on Thursday. I may skip the Wendesday Where? this week due to being out of town again, but if I find a good photo I may get one up.
