Things I have looked up on 'the' Wikipedia recently, according to my browsing history:
Ant and Dec
Puff the Magic Dragon
Charles II of England
If I was researching a novel it would clearly be ace, but not quite as ace as the first one.
In other news, I hope you all had a lovely Christmas, and wish you all a very happy New Year. I predict that 2009 will be the year that blogging officially becomes old hat, along with halogen spotlights, Starbucks and rocket. Ambient lighting, Caffe Nero and lamb's lettuce FTW!
In more other news, my copy of Steven Johnson's new book, The Invention of Air, has arrived, hurrah! I can't think of anything more pleasurable to do on The Day After Boxing Day than read a super book about 18th-century natural philosophers. Can you?
In the last of the other news, this is apparently my 700th post. I've resolved to try a bit harder with the next 700.
