Friday Five (a day late): a cure for the listless

i’ve been stumbling across a lot of lists lately in blogworld. maybe that’s because it’s so easy to post lists. it’s even easier to post a list of other bloggers’ lists. in keeping with my new minimalism, why should i come up with a list of my own when so many others have already done the heavy listing? so here’s my metalist of some good lists i’ve read about lately. and since i’m late for the friday five, i’m tossing in a couple extra. you’re welcome.

In Bing’s words: “Well, what that does is that feeds control freaks with a constant, steady stream of stuff that needs to be controlled. That’s what’s making people more crazy.”
