Things you may have missed...

Here are just a few cool tidbits that might not have crossed your radar in the past week...

• Have you been to Awkward Family Photos yet? The offerings there range from the hilarious and the spooky to the downright creepy! UPDATE: and the oh, so patriotic!

Elsa Barnouw has lived for 90 years in the same NYC apartment.

Ellen Degeneres gave a fantabulous graduation speech at Tulane.

Emmie's got some wanderlust.

• This is so freakin' cool if you're into history, architecture, or lifestyles of the powerful and famous: tour the White House -- the current one, or historical versions (and the East and West Wings). I could spend hours here!

How much space does your commute take up?

• Jon Stewart on the back-and-forth between Obama and Cheney.

• And the Quote of the Week, from Ron Reagan, the son of Rush Limbaugh's greatest hero:
Limbaugh hasn't had a natural erection since the Nixon Administration; think he's compensating for something? Now, I wouldn't pick on him for any of this stuff, not his blubbiness, not his man-boobs, not his inability to have a natural erection—none of that stuff—to me, off limits until! until! Mr. Limbaugh, you turn that sort of gun on somebody else—once you start doing that, you're fair game, fat boy. Absolutely, you jiggly pile of mess. You're just fair game, and you're going to get it, too.

Jon Stewart rocks as usual. As for the awkward family photos, they make me feel better about some of my family photos - and about there no longer being fashion exactly like the 70's and 80's any more.
