I have guilty pleasures.
My greatest guilty pleasure? People watching at the Mall of America when I’m there for a long bus layover. It just feels so wrong and invasive, but it feels so… acceptable, all at the same time.
What is one of your guilty pleasures?
I also really love Post Secret.
Mitt Romney’s post-election photos have been rather puzzling to me. Pumping his own gas, taking the grandkids to Disney and riding roller coasters, posing slightly unkempt in the kitchen with Ann while wearing a t-shirt. Shouldn’t he have tried this normal guy image thing DURING the campaign?
Also puzzling: Why is he still trying to sell himself to us?

Sandwiched: Japanese patrol boats capture Chinese activists as island standoff grows
Japan is considering deporting 14 Chinese activists arrested for landing without authorization on disputed islands in the East China Sea, as harsh criticisms and repeated demands for their release erupted Thursday in China.
The protesters had travelled by boat from Hong Kong to the uninhabited islands controlled by Japan but also claimed by China and Taiwan.
They were arrested Wednesday after five of them landed on one of the five-island group, known as Senkaku in Japanese and Diaoyu in Chinese. (Photo: AP Photo/Yomiuri Shimbun, Masataka Morita)
It takes only a menu in a local restaurant listing exotically named concoctions like Fulton Lonely Blond, Left Hand Chainsaw Ale and Rush River Double Bubble to let you know that craft beers are booming.
I started browsing her bookcase. She told me not to bother. I asked her why. She said that she gives away the books she loves.
