This just in: leeks are funny!

Who knew??

Here's Loituma Girl, an internet meme (apparently) with a very addictive Finnish song, going on and on ... and on and on and on! Be warned ;)

If you're in the mood for something shorter, here it is in another version, including a pet moose. How can you go wrong with that? ;)

Free book! Freeeeee Gaiman booook!!!

... but only in March, so if you want to read Neil Gaiman's American Gods online for free, here's what to do:

Hurry up and:
- cancel all your appointments for a number of days [see below for calculation]
- fill up [insert appropriate pet name here]'s food and water bowls
- call out for X pizzas [X being the 592 pages of American Gods (with acknowledgements but without reading group guide) divided by your reading speed measured in pages pr. day times the number of meals you prefer pr. day] and be prepared to eat them cold
- turn off phones/alarms/door bells [after pizza is delivered]
- and click here to start reading!

You don't believe me? Here's the post from Neil Gaiman's journal telling you the exact same thing in a slightly less insanely excited way ;)

And if you, like me, are reading American Gods for the first time, here's a list of all the gods mentioned in the book, with short descriptions and cross-references! Very useful :)
