I spent most of last night reading Marie Phillips's Gods Behaving Badly, which is a romcom-ish book about Apollo, Artemis, Aphrodite, Hephaestus, Athena, Ares, Hermes, Demeter, and Dionysus living together in a run-down house in London, annoying the bejeesus out of each other as their powers dwindle to nothing and two mortals who wander into their way.

Can't recommend it highly enough!

Grand Central, part of the publishing conglomerate Hachette, has pounced on Grahame-Smith, signing him up for a two-book deal reported to be worth more than half-a-million dollars. [...]

The first book, said Greenberg, will be Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter, "a presidential biography in the vein of a Doris Kearns Goodwin or David McCullough, but repositioning the president as the greatest vampire hunter to walk the earth". Unlike Pride and Prejudice and Zombies, there is no source material, so the novel will be all original writing. "But rather than just toss vampires in wherever he feels, Seth is doing a lot of research to see where they could fit in properly to the actual events of Lincoln's life – from childhood on," said Greenberg.

I had a dream.

I had a dream last night wherein I wanted to bang Barack Obama.

He was going to North Korea for some reason but somehow I knew that he always wanted to go to Chile, so I told him that he should just go to Chile, and he gave me a giant Obamasmile and told me that he would talk to his staff about it. I know that in this dream I definitely was hoping that he would do me.

This actually really only weirds me out because it's the second dream with Obama that I've had in the last week. A few nights ago, I had a dream where I was randomly doing something in Congress and got recruited to do something awesome in team Obama and the president and I were, like, chilling out.


Then I went back to sleep and dreamed that I was in a dorm where all the students were being held prisoner because we were psychic ninjas, and I was starting a rebellion.


I should start recording my dreams, because they usually are all hilariously weird. Except when I dream that I've gotten out of bed and then wake up and have to really get out of bed... those ones are just sad.

Oh my god there is a Thomas the Tank Engine Wiki.


Jon Gosselin might soon be minus Kate & 8. The reality star show has been busted cheating on his wife and RadarOnline.com has obtained an exclusive video interview with a man who saw Jon romantically kissing another woman.

David Reitnauer, a security guard at a Pennsylania motel, says Jon shows up frequently and goes to the bar “Legends.” Reitnauer caught Jon kissing a woman in a stairwell and describes what happened that night in this exclusive video.

His interview follows another published report that identifies the woman as third grade teacher Deanna Hummel. Her brother tells Us Weekly that Jon and Deanna have been having a three-month affair has been intimate with her at their Reading, Pa. house.

It turns out that seasonal fruits can be the perfect promotional platform for a film. Last summer’s avocado season coincided conveniently with the fall release of High School Musical 3. Besides the promotional boost, Disney earns back royalties on each unit sold. And, because of the Disney appeal, more units tend to sell. Sometimes it’s a lot more: Bagged-apple sales went up 47 percent during a High School Musical promotion at Winn Dixie (WINN).
