1. Mark your calendars and set your alarm clocks, because the metro area Target is opening on Sunday! I have been combining suburban Target trips with visits to my parents for the last SEVEN YEARS, so I will be there on 10/10/10 with bells on.

2. Happy birthday to Frank Herbert, writer of Dune, enabler of geekiness.

3. This week at work I got a chance to use the Don Draper quote to the beatnik in Season 1 of Mad Men:
Beatnik: You’re in advertising? How do you sleep at night?
Don Draper: On a mattress made of money.
