fb talk 2The following is from a posting on my FB page.

We all get the jokes (that aren’t actually funny) but, honestly, I’ve never much trusted people who don’t love reading. There’s something fundamentally missing.

So much cuteness in this link, I can’t even breathe. The adorableness sucked all the air right out of the room.

fb talk 2I think this may be the most disgusting thing I’ve ever seen. I have a no consumables rule for the bathroom. Not a coke with a lid, not a cup of coffee–nothing that will later touch my lips is entering the bathroom. Am I OCD about this or is everyone this way?

The Museum of Idiosyncrasy is a Tumblr blog about sexytimes and romance. I once told @EroticClara that her site was like poetry in images to me.

If you’re under 18 or easily offended, you absolutely should not check out this site; otherwise, go there and see for yourself.

I go there to get inspiration when I need to write sexy scenes. Every image, to me, tells a story. It evokes a feeling. Every quote speaks truthfully. And, I love it.


A really awesome Paranormal TV show hosted by an even awesomer Landra Graf; a dollhouse that would make Stephen King cry; and badness.  Just… movie remake badness.

  • The Beyond Natural with Landra Graf: This is my incredible Crit Partner that I have connected with. She’s awesome and she’s superwoman. She writes, she critiques, she does a paranormal TV show, raises children, and is probably saving a puppy or something right now. You should hit her up on Twitter and watch the show, The Beyond Natural, which shows on Wednesdays @ 10pm EST. I think you can watch it later, but Landra will have to provide those details.
  • The Bloggess‘s Haunted Dollhouse: Pretty much, the most awesome and creepy and brilliant thing I’ve ever seen.  She made this.  Still in awe.
  • Please No: Katherine Heigl and Gerard Butler for ‘Romancing the Stone’ Remake? by Kate Erbland: First I hear they’re remaking Dirty Dancing and I agree with what someone said on Twitter: suddenly, it feels like someone put Baby in a corner.  And now, this?  Really?  Is Hollywood just collectively smoking crack or is there some secret strike on original ideas going on?  I don’t even dislike either of these actors, but… no.  Just, no.

I am running so late with these, you guys!  I have to be at work in a little over an hour, so I’m just throwing them up here.

Look.  Laugh.  Appreciate the seriousness.  Take some blame.  Learn to share with your sister, damn it.

  • |Expletive| Cancer by xkcd.com (via the fabulous Jen Lawson): Cancer sucks.  And more things you didn’t know about it.  But you should.
  • Au Revoir, Borders by Rachelle Gardner:  She basically takes all the blame for the Borders closings.  But, then, it’s my fault, too.  And it’s probably yours, too.  In the end, perhaps we should be less self-gratifying and more thoughtful about the things (and places) we love.
  • The Ring* on The Bettyverse by Nan Reinhardt: A lovely story about family and sisters and sacrifice.  And jewelry.

All five of us kids were more excited about Mom’s gift than we were about our own, and when she opened the ring, her expression of pure joy was the best gift of all. From that night, the beautiful little bauble never left her finger. She loved when people admired it, so she could tell them, “Four lindy star sapphires for my four September kids and one pearl for my June girl.” We’d scored! It was exactly what she’d wanted.

When mom died and it came time to split up her jewelry, that ring was a tough call— all three of us sisters wanted it. We considered drawing straws but instead we compromised and decided to share Mom’s ring. We’d each wear it for a year at time—a deal Mom would’ve heartily approved. So every October, we do the ring exchange and part of the fun is the ceremony involved. Wine, a toast to our mother, and then the ring goes to its new owner for another year. This year it’s my turn—I can’t wait for October!

*EDIT 08.29.2011: They’re rolling out a new ‘verse at The Bettyverse so… we’ll have to wait and see if that post comes back.

 

EDIT 10.25.2011: This link post apparently never made it over to the new site. But, I’m leaving it here, with the blurb, because it was good.

I’m fairly certain this comes from the site dearblankpleaseblank.com.  It’s gone viral and tracking down the original is difficult.  The above seems to be from the etsy store where you can buy this on stationary.  Whew.

All that just to point you to M.E. Summer‘s blog, Sticking to the Story, where she makes me have happy grammar dreams by telling us how to properly use things like serial commas (you MUST–my opinion, not hers) and other goodness.

Also, I’m not at all calling her a grammar slut in any way.  Unless she likes that sort of thing.

I already have a post set to go live tomorrow, but I couldn’t NOT post this newest link licker find.  Well, it’s not so much a find, as I’ve known Carole for years and she really is this amusing (as well as kind and wise) all of the time.

I’m including her latest post below the fold, but I deeply urge you to go to her site and read the rest of her offerings.  She’s truly brilliant.
