The 90210 reruns on SOAPnet have just cycled back to the beginning — and you can read S1 recaps at The HeldenFiles.
Looking for an all-purpose, three-minute expositional answer to just about any action-movie dilemma? Matt Zoller Seitz has "The Explanation."
And the end of summer means…well, a few things, including back-to-school shopping, which I still do every year even though school is half a lifetime ago. I cannot resist the lure of new notebooks and organizing tools, and MZS's neighbors tipped me to 1) cheap, chic school stuff at Muji ("the Japanese Ikea"); and 2) a big summer sale at Container Store. My spies also told me that you can say you're shopping for college and get another 10% off just by signing up for a mailing; they don't ask for proof or anything. I'm not saying you should or should not do so; I'm saying we're in a recession.
But it also means the TN Fall Contest is approaching. Would you like to donate a prize? Would you care to help out on the administrative end? Drop me a line: bunting at tomatonation dot com. Or start shopping the proposals at DonorsChoose.org.
