Someone asked me this morning if I was ready for the holidays. Ha. If you're as unprepared as I am, this tutorial on how to make gift boxes out of cereal boxes looks awfully good.

The "XYZ of the Year" lists are starting to come out as well. Did you know that Oxford's word of the year is locavore? The list of nominees is interesting. I think I like bacn the best.

The art competition known as Last Man Standing is about to get underway. (Women can enter too - one won last year!)

The Onion's AV Club lists 20 good books that turned into so-so movies. If you haven't checked out the AV Club, please do - it's relatively serious, compared to its parent news site!

Bunny discovered Folk Streams, which lets you watch documentaries online for free. This is an excellent time waster, but you can always say it's educational!

Anonymous Anonymous: Hey!

I noticed that over the last several months you blogged often about Cool
Globes: Hot Ideas for a Cooler Planet - the innovative public art project in
Chicago that represented simple solutions to global warming. Starting
Monday, November 26 for one week only, select large and mini-globes from the
Cool Globes exhibit in Chicago will be auctioned to raise funds for the
Chicago Conservation Corp Clubs, which provide environmental education
opportunities for Chicago�s youth.

Among the globes to be auctioned are mini-globes from:

* Bill Clinton
* Robert Redford
* David Schwimmer
* Tobey Maguire
* Eva Mendes
* Rob Corddry
* Jenny Lennon and the cast of �Reno 911�
* Magic Johnson
* Dave Winfield
* Chicago Bear Tommie Harris
* Tony Bennett
* BB King
* Heather Headley
* The Gypsy Kings

The auction will take place online, hosted by eBay, so that even those who
don't live in or around Chicago can make an offer. You can view globes or
place a bid in the online auction at www.coolglobes.org.

I thought your blog readers might be interested in learning more. Please
feel free to reply with any questions and I hope you'll consider writing
about this. Thanks!

- Kelly
