Fun Links

The 2010 Bulwer-Lytton awards for bad fiction have been bestowed. Enjoy the glistening dewdrops, the axe-bearing villagers, and the very worst opening sentences of the past year.

Amazon bought Woot, and Matt Rutledge wrote the most awesome acquisition announcement ever. "One, our business model is so vague that there’s no way Amazon can possibly change what it is we’re truly doing..." (via Holy Kaw!)

A mother's work is never done. For a single mom with more than one child, even more so.

Booktails: Our Favorite Alcoholic Beverages From Literature. With these recipes, you can feel oh-so erudite and sophisticated as you become thoroughly sloshed.

Sweet James Bond-Like Space Saving Furniture. After a couple minutes of this presentation, I was expecting them to fold an entire apartment into a suitcase.

This FaceTime Commercial Parody looks at the real consequences of being connected by technology. If that's all you have, then that's all you have.

The baffling euphemisms of plus-sized clothes. Different shapes have different names, but it just won't do for a clothing manufacturer to label them as "fat-shaped".

You see beautiful rooms in catalogs and magazines and you have to wonder about people who would live in such artistic perfection. The blog Catalog Living gives you a glimpse into the life of those who live in those places, and it's not always pretty. (via Metafilter)
