Movie Recommendation: "In Good Company"

Just finished watching “In Good Company” on video. FANTASTIC cast of Dennis Quaid, Topher Grace, Scarlett Johansson, and Marg Helgenberger. Great story about real people and situations – very funny and also moving. Two thumbs up!

The website you probably don't want to know about

So I have an awesome roommate, Farzanah, who's lived with me now for almost 1.5 months. She's a sweetheart, but for whatever reason my cat Sabrina hasn't taken to her. To protest the continuing cohabitation situation, Sabrina had started leaving little presents in the middle of the floor (the kind of present that should have gone directly to the litter box). So today I went looking for advice (where else?) on the Internet, and found this site (you'll have to finish the words yourself, as I don't want my blog registered as tasteless or inappropriate:

It's juvenile, but it made me laugh out loud. Think what you will of me ...

Ways you can help

Maybe you've already heard about this, but there has been a bad famine in the African nation of Niger over the past year, and the situation is now dire:

At the latest count, 160,000 children in Niger were still suffering from serious malnutrition, and the lives of 32,000 were at immediate risk.

Things were quieter but even more grim at the nearby emergency-care center run by Doctors Without Borders. Even in a relatively good week, the camp's directors say, more than a dozen babies there succumb to the effects of hunger and related diseases. Desperate relatives often bring in 18-month-olds who weigh as little as a healthy 3-month-old. The camp's extreme-care center held 48 tiny children last week. Many were on intravenous feeding tubes. Only a few were crying. Hunger had reduced the rest to motionless silence. "These babies' metabolism has completely changed," says Dr. Chantal Umutoni, the head of the intensive-care unit. "They don't eat on their own. They are letting themselves die."

If you would like to give, and are able to, here are some charities I'd like to suggest:

Doctors Without Borders
Foster Parents' Plan
Canadian Red Cross

Ever feel a little "modification" would make you look so much better? Then check out this website. (Note: due to references to "b--b jobs" and "the ugliest t-ts in America", you may not want to view this website from your workplace.)
