Nestle offers different flavor KitKat, mostly in Japan, including soy sauce, grilled potato, and sports drink.  I love KitKat, but probably not all these flavors. Check out this collector's more than 100 pictures here.

Another song from David Byrne's Imelda Marcos album is available to hear.  This one features Cyndi Lauper and Tori Amos and it's a good one.  Sounds fun.  Album doesn't come out till April 6 so I'm glad these songs are being released.

Did you watch the Men's figure skating?  What excitement and quite tense!  Did you know that Vera Wang designed Gold metal winner Evan Lysachek's snake outfit?  She has designed costumes for Nancy Kerrigan and Michelle Kwan and got inducted into the U.S. Figure Skating Hall of Fame for her costumes.
