The bloggers are dying – Obviously I’m not working hard enough.

Soap opera characters writing bestsellers – Kickass. Strikingly similar to my own life.

Guardian UK interview with Salman Rushdie – Padma, thank you for freeing up your husband for my superior snuggles and editorial comments.

The 40-year anniversary of Alexander Portnoy – “…Portnoy’s Complaint did for the Jewish mother what Jaws did for the shark: took an already frightening creature and made it even scarier.”

European eco-porn activists – Taking a sexy, irrelevant time machine back to the ’60s.
