- I glanced at the Pioneer Press while having lunch at Eli's today (why does a Downtown restaurant stock a copy of the St. Paul paper?) and noticed this foreclosure story. Is any of this really news to anyone? Also, I love how the only comment at the time of this blog posting is from someone complaining that the author placed the Phoenix on the River development in Downtown.
- "(Rethinking) Gender: What Makes Us Male or Female?" From Newsweek two weeks ago; I was reading Em & Lo tonight and they linked to it recently. I was just trying to explain transgenderism to a friend on Friday and couldn't quite articulate my crossed wires explanation after three pineapple upside down cake martinis, but the article sums it up nicely. There's also a great episode of The Tyra Banks Show about transgendered youth that aired in February, but I couldn't find any video.
Racking up karma points on vita.mn is so ridiculously simple that anyone can do it and have a chance at winning. (Except me, since my independent contractor status prevents me from being eligible.) Write mini-reviews, tag venues and events, create and edit guides, start or add to lists... seriously, it's so easy. I'm telling you this because I'm tired of seeing the same people win all this cool stuff month after month, since no one else even tries.
