Greetings, early morning blog consumer!
Or late afternoon blog consumer!

The Ford's not picky. Or judgemental.

Which is why he's offering you these bonus links -- likely crippling himself later on in his daily struggle to provide you, dear reader, with the finest in commentary, humor, and web design -- before you even get to his admittedly only-occasionally funny writing down below. (Or you could scroll down to the post before this one, and save these links for dessert, the same way The Ford always use to save the dumplings from his mom's chicken and dumplings. It'll make you feel better when The Ford decides in 16 hours that he can skip a post, having given the world so much already.)

Either way prepare for some stripped down links. (But not THOSE kind of stripped down links...) Why?

Because The Ford likes to start his day with a little music, even if it is a song viral in its ability to stick in your head from just a reading of it: http://www.latimes.com/news/local/cl-et-america9may09,0,7522844.story?coll=la-home-headlines

Because The Ford thinks reading about Lindsey Lohan in the New York Fricking Times somehow legitimizes his likely abnormal interest in a teen redhead: http://www.nytimes.com/2006/05/09/movies/09loha.html

Because The Ford's still slightly pained over not getting tickets to Conan's tapings in Chicago: http://featuresblogs.chicagotribune.com/entertainment_tv/2006/05/conan_obrien_sp.html

Because The Ford wants to stretch beyond just linking to newspapers, but really doesn't want to stretch that far, so he'll settle for McSweeney's mocking of "Snakes on a Plane," even though he STILL hasn't seen a trailer for said movie: http://www.mcsweeneys.net/2006/4/10keinathnuske.html

Because The Ford enjoys breaking the Rule of Threes on occasion -- but feels four is a wishy-washy number, thanks to its ability to be divided by 2 -- in an attempt to be a "bad boy," in the fashion of these people slightly more famous than The Ford: http://seattletimes.nwsource.com/html/living/2002975374_celebcads08.html

Count me as one of the thousands of poor suckers who also couldn't get Conan tickets. For what it's worth (probably nothing), I did get an initial e-mail with ticket information, but apparently you must receive a second e-mail in order to obtain standby tickets. So then you can sit your ass all day next to the Chicago Theater and maybe get into the show. Eh, I'd rather just watch it on TV with a drink in my hand.
Oh, and Potbelly's is outstanding. You must go there when you come out in July! The Wreck with everything is a frickin' culinary masterpiece.
