On Seinfeld, Kramer decides to make a coffee table book about ______ ______.
I was watching an old episode of Seinfeld the other day (it was "The Pool Guy" episode), and I couldn't help but LOL when George went off on Jerry for introducing Elaine to his girlfriend Susan. If you haven't seen the episode, George gets mad because he doesn't want his "worlds colliding". . . meaning that if his relationship self meets his independent self, it will be the end of independent George (you can check out the clip below).
Anyway, this got me thinking about social networking sites like Facebook, where many people keep their work contacts separated from their friends and therefore, decrease the chances of their "worlds colliding." What do you think about this? Do you keep some sort of separation among your various worlds?
Welcome back to my Buzz Gift Guide series for all the entertainment lovers in your life. This week is all about gifting your peers who are, like you, totally obsessed with pop culture. I already found gifts for the Sex and the City fanatic and t-shirt-loving chicas.
Today I've rounded up some ideas for the game-loving ladies in your life. I personally enjoy a good game of Texas Hold 'Em to pass the time with my family over the holidays, and I was excited to find this hilarious Desperate Housewives themed poker set. So many of us grew up watching A Christmas Story that it would probably be easy to gather a group around this board game based on the movie, and I already have several friends in mind for the board game based on The Office.
Finally, for your more technologically savvy friends and family, I might suggest this Scene It? Seinfeld game which includes a DVD component, as well as Dancing with the Stars and American Idol games for Nintendo's Wii.

The appeal of changing your desktop wallpaper is obvious — it's free, it's easy, and you get a mental refresher every time you look at your computer screen, which is something most of us have to do all day. Sometimes we stick to ones we like for a long time, and sometimes you're in the mood to switch it up, as I am now. Usually I go for a fun design, but today? I am all Costanza.
It's been lingering in the back of my mind for a long time now. Could we just replace each of the Seinfeld characters with muppets? I know. I know. You're thinking the show would lose its mundane charm if we turn Jerry, Elaine, and George into puppets. (Kramer is another story.) The muppets are all novelty; they couldn't pull off "nothingness" if they tried. Well, not so fast! Here's a little something of nothing . . .
The National Sleep Foundation released some sleepy survey results yesterday. About one third of the 1,000 participants admitted to falling asleep or being on the verge of sleeping on the job during the past month. The average weeknight's sleep for the respondents was six hours and 40 minutes, and ironically most named work as the culprit for what keeps them from sleeping.
Reading this immediately reminded me of the episode of Seinfeld when George finds a way to sleep under his desk — he just lays on his back and pulls in the chair. He even has a shelf added to hold an alarm clock. I can't say that I wake up feeling refreshed each morning, but I've never come close to sleeping at work. What about you?
