"You haven’t lived unless you’ve had winters with frostbite and summers of 100 degrees. And that’s me."

Steven Tyler, though whether he’d appreciate our non-metaphorical experience with those extremes is unclear.

"Now, when I occasionally pick up an IRL book, it feels like I’m holding a  little papery corpse. I will continue to honor the dead, but now that  I’ve seen the glorious light beyond, I won’t mourn their passing.”

"The grass at Target Field was uncovered and has already been mowed this  week. Even if there is still snow on the ground on April 8, the field  will be ready for baseball. I am not as convinced that the fans will be  ready for outdoor baseball on April 8."
Twins blogger Jean Gabler looks forward to summer.

“‘Whoa,’ my big sister Krissy muttered as Sasha Cohen lifted her leg into its natural position, slightly past 180 degrees.
"I  watched closely to gauge Krissy’s reaction. At this point I had decided  I had no proper compass for appropriately reacting to the phenomenon  that is Smucker’s Stars on Ice, which we saw at the Xcel Energy Center on March 13. It’s like American Idol—campy,  oddly entrancing, and based on a talent that I have no clue how to  professionally analyze. While I did have a short stint on a synchronized  skating team (unfortunately named ‘Team Expression’), I was less than  passionate about ice skating and frankly, I sucked at it.”
Becky Lang reports on all the gaudy glory.

“Tutankhamun: The Golden King and the Great Pharaohs does have something of the feel of a party thrown by someone  who forgot to show up…but given that the king’s been dead for 3,300  years, even my aunt Judy forgave his poor manners.”

"In a rare, pre-opening photo opportunity inside the Tutankhamun: The Golden King and the Great Pharaohs exhibition, artifact handlers will install a 3,000 year-old canopic stopper that encased one of the miniature coffinettes that contained King Tut’s mummified organs."

Science Museum of Minnesota press release. Who knew King Tut’s organs had their own coffinettes?
