What's your favorite blend or brand of coffee or tea?

I only drink coffee that is picked by beautiful vestal virgins on a remote mountain under a blue moon.  Afterwhich, it is roasted upon golden pans heated by precious woods from an unspoiled forest.  It is then ground by men and women whose coffee-grinding family can be traced back thousands of years.  Then it is packaged in a beautiful container studded with gems.  It is then brewed by my butler using only the purest water, and served to me in a platinum cup.

That, or some Folgers.  They all taste the same.

Whoever came up with that gem was full of shit. 

I had a meeting today to discuss our site redesign: I'm talking a complete overhaul of the IA, navigation, content and layout.  As we explained the changes in the layout from homepage to subpages on a powerpoint, showcasing the wonderful "Related Links" on the right nav and touching on meta tags, one of the folks in the meeting interrupted with a question.

This person asked with great seriousness, "How are these 'Related Links' different from regular links?  And are regular links different from hyperlinks?"

I did my best to keep a straight face as I watched a colleague bug her eyes out and mouth "OMG."

So yes, there are stupid questions; and thank god for them, otherwise I'd have no story for the day.

Who was your first celebrity crush?
Submitted by Glory.

David Bowie in Labyrinth!  That awesomely huge hair, the eyeliner, the lipgloss, THE TIGHT PANTS.

What am I saying? I still have a crush on him

Edited to fix the godawful spelling error.  I love the blood spatters.

I wanted a pool of blood for the heart, but that was a bit much.

Bloc Party's "A Weekend in the City."  It's one of those albums that seem so comfortingly familiar, yet new all at the same time.
