Michelle Obama for President

For any of you who missed Michelle Obama's inspirational speach at the Dem convention the other night, I highty suggest you take a 15 minute break from tetris to watch it. Michelle's warmth, passion and intelligence are a welcome relief from the lifeless Laura Bush, whose personality ranges somewhere between zombie and Disney World animatronic creature. America will be better off having Michellle Obama in Washington, and who knows? Maybe in eight years she'll pull a Hillary and run for office herself!

Enchanted: Like Elf, but With Less Green Spandex

I was watching Enchanted this weekend, and couldn't stop thinking that the movie seemed really familiar. Then I realized, I was basically watching Elf, but with more singing and fewer large men in green tights (maybe this had something to do with the fact that I'd also watched Talladega Nights that weekend, which stars Amy Adams and Will Ferrell). If I were an Olympic gymnastics judge, I would award Enchanted a bronze medal; the music and dancing are not bad (by modern movie musical standards) and Amy Adams is super adorable as the cartoon brought to life, even if she doesn't consume massive amounts of candy and make wooden toys out of furniture.

Olympic Fever!

Olympic Fever has official spread to GPT HQ. Last night, Stef stayed up all night watching gymnastics, and I've found myself straying from baseball games to watch swimming. Shocking? I think the photo below speaks for itself. Go USA!!!

Virtual Bubble Wrap

There's less strategy involved in popping virtual bubble wrap than in playing tetris, but it's still strangely satisfying, and a good way to relieve stress at work. Try the manic mode if you're feeling really crazy. Thanks to GPT fan and dad, Alvin W., for helping us find yet another addictive slice of Internet silliness.
