Friday LinkFrogging - 1/13/12
Happy Friday the 13th kids.

Fear not paraskevidekatriaphobics, I'm not going to spend much time on that calendar abberation.  I just wanted to mention it before we went too far.

I don't know you, but so far, 2012 is kicking my ass.  There doesn't seem to be enough time in a day or enough days in a week to get done what I need done.  I'm perpetually digging out and/or moving stacks of paper around to make room for more of the same.

I've got a to do list a mile long and not much chance to get it done.

I'm not complaining.  Well, not really.  I mean things are what they are and we make due.  If things go really well, we get ahead...even if only for a few minutes.

Or, like Stephe we self-medicate with tequila and Advil.

Or, if you're Chelsea Handler, you use vodka.

See what I did there?

That was one of my trademark ham-fisted seques kids.

It was my way of making room for this week's cheesecake.  Please say hello to Laura Prepon.

Ms. Prepon is best known as Donna, Eric's girl-next-door girlfriend, on That 70s Show.  For nine years, she smoked and joked with the boys in the basement.  Since then, she's done small guest roles on a variety of television shows.

This week, she made her debut as the erstwhile lead in Are You There, Chelsea?  That's right, she plays Chelsea while Handler plays her own sister.  That's got to be awkward, even on a good day.

I watched the premiere on Wednesday.  It was okay.  My wife says Ms. Prepon has Handler's cadence down.  I'll take her word for it.  Me?  I'm waiting for the inevitable guest appearance by one of her Point Place friends.  Danny Masterson can't be that busy can he?

On to the links.
