Need another bracket?

Then behold, Consumerist's 2009 Worst Company in America bracket! The 2008 winner, Countrywide Home Loans, isn't in the running for obvious reasons, but 2008 runner-up Comcast is back to try for the title again.

Wanna see a bald pageant queen?

Miss Virginia has joined other fundraisers (many of whom have already been shorn) with St. Baldrick's Foundation in setting a donation goal to shave her head, with the donations benefiting pediatric cancer research. She's trying to raise $500k before April 11, and she can't shave her head until she reaches that goal. She has a long way to go, so get your wallet out!

A couple of handy links

1. When you're totally over your obsession with eBay/Friendster/Twitter, how do you actually get rid of your account? For some sites, it's not as easy as you'd think. PC Magazine has published a cheat sheet for the most common/difficult.

2. Despite the catchy (or horribly annoying, if you're me) jingle, FreeCreditReport isn't the real deal. AnnualCreditReport is.

All in one picture

It was an exhausting weekend around our house. Playing in the snow, getting baths, cleaning the house and every towel we own after the baths... and after over a week with our newest addition, I finally got them all in one picture. Sort of.

Bet you can guess who's really in charge around here, eh?
