… and MSN City Guides can’t stay. Er, not for long, at least. Well, you know what they say–”If you can’t take the Berkeley, get out of the Berkeley,” or, uh, something like that. [MSN, via SFist]

… cold enough to snow in San Francisco, apparently. And in all the high hills from Sonoma to Santa Cruz. But … no, no. We couldn’t possibly hope that–perhaps, maybe? Down here? Murphy’s law? Seriously, if there are snowball fights in Berkeley the day we get back to SoCal, we’re going to punch someone in the throat. [SFist]

… and it’s only getting colder for the university’s money supply (or hotter, depending on whether you favor a “Financial Armageddon” by fire or ice.)

Are you sick of trendy news references to blogs? Well, you should probably leave the room, because we’re blogging about a big blogging reference right here. The MSN homepage (with the help of “PC World”) prominently featured a “100 Blogs We Love” list.

For a much more refreshing taste of that sweet, sweet web nectar, one need only click on any typical blogroll. Except for ours. Because it doesn’t “exist.”
