Don’t be too disappointed in me because I haven’t reported on the newest, most inane widgets out there lately. Sometimes a girl gets busy with non-widgety things. But now that I’m down to contemplating how many tissues I might really have used this week and what exactly defines a “low-grade” fever, I finally have the time to get back on this horse. Let higher-minded people deal with politics and world events, I stake my claim on the widgets.

This is a good idea in theory. But I was kind of hoping for events of a more global and social significance. Or at least more interesting information about Cheerios.

Again, good idea, bad execution. How about:

Dear Becca,

Don’t forget the eggs. That way you won’t be forced to make the butter biscuits because they happen not to call for eggs.


Ladies and gentlemen, a widget is not a substitute for anger management classes.

I think this is just the apotheosis of widgets. Come on, it’s a hotel! And it’s random! A random hotel! Every day!

I’m not sure it can get any better than this.

The Eagles – Hotel California

    I’ll be bet the quote from Buddha was more inspirational in the original Pakrit.

    I love the random hotel one.

    Wonder if I could find a daily Beastie Boys lyric widget. That would be cool to have.

    Becca! I just wanted to say I am humbled that you would link to my blog on jewball; thanks for visiting!

    Sarpon, the Cheerios one was also more inspirational in Pakrit.

    Maureen, if only the widget-makers took requests.

    Thanks, likewise, Melanie! Welcome to the wide world of blogging.
