You didn't actually ask, but...

Twin Bridges

Including a geography question involving the Twin Bridges.

Believe it or not, there are some people who don't visit AOA via a bookmark, feed reader, irresistible urge, or unconscious habit. (Yes, shocking, we know.) Many of these people come in looking for something via Google -- and sometimes we can't help but take notice of what they're looking for.

Well, as you know, we like to help. So even though you didn't actually ask, here's the (an) answer...

April 28: I am looking for a rachael ray garbage bowl

Then you are likely to be disappointed. Because as we're happy to break it to you: the Rachael Ray Garbage Bowl is simply a bowl -- that you put garbage in, and pay $19.95 for the privilege of doing so. And if you cry because your RR garbage bowl breaks, it's likely you have larger problems.

May 7: book of dague

We're guessing that you were looking for Six and Eleven, Ed Dague's memoir. We suppose it's also possible you were looking for a religious text based on Dague's story. We'd kind of like to read that, too.

An imaginary quote from the Book of Dague 1:16 -- "Thou shalt be ready to answer obvious follow-up questions about your story during a live hit."

May 10: hipster shopping albany

We're sorry to report that the purchase of hipsters was banned in New York State by the Preserve Williamsburg Act of 2009. If you're still looking to buy a hipster of your own, and don't mind traveling, you should try Minnesota -- it was recently rated as the most hipster state.

June 7: what is south of the twin bridges near Albany NY

Roughly along the 73rd meridian, in geographic order: Albany, New York City, the Atlantic Ocean, Port-au-Prince, Bogotá, Iquitos (Peru), Concepción (Chile), Antarctica.

By the way: the bridges are actually named the Thaddeus Kosciusko Bridge -- TK's worth reading about.

June 7: is the hall of springs in saratoga too big

Well, everything's relative, right? For a rally of tiny anti-frackers -- yes, it's too big. If you're planning the wedding of the future Duke and Duchess of Cambridge -- no, it's probably too small. For events somewhere in between it could be just right.

June 8: why is there a name printed on the milk

For Hannaford milk, it's the name of the person running the line the day the milk was packaged.

June 27: foods not acceptable at work

One of the benefits of not working in a traditional office is that we're not subject to the odors of our co-worker's heated up leftovers. Even so, we've compiled a short list to get you started: smelly fish, foods that require a lot of crunching, foods that you'll forget to cover in the microwave and will explode all over, burned microwave popcorn.

You may be able to get a dispensation from co-workers on some of these if you promise to never loudly discuss the poop of your kid/dog on the phone.

June 26: Bad things about Jimmer Fredette
July 1: jimmer glens falls home address

Bad things about Jimmer... well... he has problems saying no? He likes to drink milk a little too much? He won't be able to single-handedly save the Sacramento Kings?

Oh, and about his Glens Falls address: Common misconception. Jimmer's actually a super hero. That Glens Falls stuff is all just a cover story. He lives in a crystal fortress in the Arctic. Or maybe Utah.

My grandmother has Alzheimers and sometimes comes to stay with us in Troy. Last week the absolutely highlight of her day was seeing the hundreds of crows that came streaming by the window at our apartment. I watched her go from completely unresponsive to engaged... stringing questions together and returning to her old joyful self for the half hour she watched those birds was enough to endear crows to me forever.

If you see someone running around throwing bird seed in Riverfront Park yelling "COME ON DOWN, BIRD FRIENDS!", it's me.
