man conquers fear of heights by living on roof. a vermont businessman hoping to raise awareness about child abuse spent four days living on the roof of his business. he ended up raising about $4,000. not too shabby. though, i must say - i'm pretty darn acrophobic and camping out on the roof of something sounds fun to me. and if his office building was only a few stories high, i'm not impressed. what would have been more impressive is if he would have slept face down on this:

preteen: "spongebob taught me how to save a life." okay, so i don't know whether to be scared for the future of our youth, or totally impressed with spongebob in all his squarepants glory. according to the article, "miriam and her best friend, allyson, were in music class when allyson began choking on her gum. allyson turned red and started kicking her legs. miriam says she remembered an episode from the nickelodeon animated series in which squidward gets a clarinet lodged in his throat and spongebob does the heimlich maneuver. she tried it on allyson. the gum flew out, and allyson caught her breath." weird? cool? quasi likes spongebob, so i hope he saw this episode.
he always looks a little strung out to me, no?
giveaway. i will probably kick myself for doing this, but a suburban housewife-in-training is having an amazing diamond earring giveaway, compliments of kohl's. yep, the same kohl's that now has LC's clothing line. even if you don't like diamonds (ha!), head over to H.I.T.'s blog and congratulate her on her precious new baby girl!
these are really ugly. you don't want them. don't enter. plus, you know i really deserve them.
