From an interesting study off the cable Oxygen network (O for short), apparently one-third of young women would rather ensure their Farmville crops are doing well and check other social media connections before attending to morning hygiene: “many young women check their page even before using the bathroom in the morning.”

As someone who is appalled by the implications of the study, all I can offer is the following: Buy yourself a smartphone and get all your Facebook pokes out of the way while LYING in bed.

Of course if you are trying to buy an iPhone like the woman in the following cartoon, you won’t be able to play Farmville because it’s Flash-based.

It was bound to happen. The election is over, a new year is upon us. And Saturday Night Live has regressed back to its mediocre state.

I had hoped that Neil Patrick Harris would have decent material to work with when the first episode of 2009 aired. Umm, not so much. But…I wasn’t entirely feeling hopeless about it. Maybe it was just a holiday hangover.

I’m currently watching the latest installment with Rosario Dawson as host, and I’m afraid that old habits die hard.

Maybe they should relocate to Canada….at least that way they’d have election material on an ongoing basis.
