Events of Orgasm Day will include a presentation of Eve Ensler's play "The Vagina Monologues" and a series of discussions by a panel of nationally-known sexologists.

Holla Back Girls
Gwen Stefani latest, hot single 'Hollaback Girl' has arrived. Stefani says, "The song came about after somebody once called me a cheerleader in a negative light.

So for a former avid fan of Buffy the Vampire Slayer, I gotta say that Veronica Mars is a solid replacement. Last night's show was brilliant, tying up loose ends from the season and happily we can report that UPN picked up the show for the fall.
The official Veronica Mars site has the open for the season finale... Well worth the wait.

CHINDOGU OR (UN)USELESSNESS
Chindogu is the Japanese art of the unuseless invention created by Kenji Kawakami.
Chindogu is an invention that may appear to solve an everyday problem but isn't quite worth using, because it actually makes a task harder or is simply ridiculous.
Here is an example of a chindogu invention:
Baby Mops - one-piece baby clothes that will mop the floor as they crawl around...
To learn more about chindogu and see some of the actual inventions, which are hysterical, visit Chindogu.com

VOTE FOR THE WORST
Not sure about you but we are still in a state of shock after last night's American Idol. The 'make googly eyes at the camera' Constantine Marvoulis, was booted from the show. Now other than this annoying pouty-face to-the-camera issue he is a good singer and performer.
And we are left with the question, why hasn't Scott Savol been voted off??? He is horrible and looks creepy.
Finally justice has been served. Check out VOTE FOR THE WORST AMERICAN IDOL.

THE FACE BOOK
With college students in the last few days before finals we have noticed a huge surge in on line searches for the facebook.com
The facebook is the insanely popular, online route to get the information of that cute classmate, network with other students, or stay in touch with graduating seniors, that is changing college life. Basically the site is able to create a virtual world on the physical map of the campus. This creates a sense of connection -- real or imagined, convenient and voyeuristic -- among the students.
