Last night in the HyVee I saw some "Joan of Arc" brand beans; they were so startling that I blinked, and then they vanished. I thought God was trying to tell me something, but it turns out that they do exist. Seems to be a Midwest thing.

Joan of Arc was an amazing woman. She lived and died for what she believed in. We, at Joan of Arc®, like to think that we're amazing too! We believe our beans are the best - and they are! Joan of Arc is America's #1 brand of kidney bean!!!

We also saw Sugar & Spice last night. I don't know why, when the other movies in the theater were O Brother, Where Art Thou? and Shadow of the Vampire, but this is what we saw. It had its moments, like when the Betty dolls are joined by the Nixon mask, but overall it couldn't really carry the weight of its own camp; let's just say it was no Bring It On. One of the geeky video-store guys was Dustin Hoffman's son, though.

They're pulling out all the stops in Detroit for National Condom Week. It doesn't explicitly say whether the week is meant to coincide with Valentine's Day, but I guess that's the rationale. My favorite part of the article is the self-righteous 29-year-old dismissing people ten years younger than him as "a knuckleheaded generation."
