I think "I'm sorry but your princess" is going to be my latest earworm.

Gay Gygax fans should check out the Uncle Monsterface song "thankyouGaryGygax". Really cute.

I notice you've favorited your own FPP, to get the sockpuppet ball rolling. Did you forget to sign in as davey_darling?

I always favorite my own FPPs, to be able to keep my eye on them once they scroll down or off the front page.

Time to update the picture in my profile, I think.

Someone has to mention the best sock puppet duo of all time. Considering my MeFi handle, it might as well be me.

Designers who produce websites with images and pop-ups showing the "enlarged" image at the same size as the original should be lined up and shot in the village square. Also, MySpace links to stuff that only MySpace users can actually see are damn annoying to people who don't use MySpace. Other than that, sock puppets are pretty cool. Not as much fun as sock monkeys, but fun nonetheless.

touchy-feely: paintings of sock puppets on chalkboards each one expressing a different emotion.

Oh, you know the problems I've been having hijacking threads to reference Sifl & Olly.

I saw this guy in Union Square this weekend. The socks were very attractive. That was also the day I finally learned all the details of what the Union Square art installation is supposed to mean.
