“To sit in the shade on a fine day and look upon verdure is the most perfect refreshment.” – Jane Austen

  • I’m super excited that America’s Next Top Model is coming back for another season featuring past contestants (!).  Meet the cast here. And there is no shortage of troublemakers and divas in this one (I’m looking at you, Camille).

  • Ever wanted to know what it takes to be on MTV’s The Real World? Take a peek at the contract and wonder why anyone would want to sign onto the show after reading this.

  • Have you heard of Google Goggles yet? It’s an image recognition application that you can download on your Android device or iPhone 4 for free. Meaning, take a picture and Goggles will search for information on the photographed object (includes landmarks, artwork, text, etc.). The app is still in its early stages so more improvements to come.  But still…GENIUS!

  • A very happy weekend to you!

    google goggles sounds amazing, I imagine it'll take a while though for it to be sorted out :)

    Loved your links like always!!! It is fantastic that Matt Damon was standing up for teachers, as a pre-service teacher I definitely appreciate this! Wasn't such a fan of 'greatest country in the world' and 'you get to be American', haha but that's because I'm Australian :p

    Oh and read your post about bad movies, you absolutely need to see Troll 2 and The Room. Best worst movies ever! Here is a review of the room, it gets funny about 3 mins in :)…/nostalgia-critic/25743-the-room

    I started reading the contract and started panicking – I swear that is a Human Rights violation!!! Aaah! Also goggles is amazingly genius. Hope you had a lovely weekend :)
