I love this site, vintageglam.com*.  It’s just fun to look at.  And while I’m so NOT into the Martha Stewart It’s-A-Good-Thing style of living (who the frack has time for that?), I still enjoy the the ideas and printouts.  Like Mad Lib thank you notes.  What writer can’t appreciate a good Mad Lib?  Or a clothesline guest book.  It’s so unique, and so… not taking ourselves too seriously.  Anyway, look around.  Waste an hour. *Update 6.29.2011: Vintage Glam has become Ruffled, a site about weddings. **Update 7.5.2011: Apparently it was always about weddings and I just thought the talk of placecards and DIY centerpieces wasRead More →

Let’s dream a little today, shall we?  Because what I need, what my heart’s true desire is, I can’t afford.  And you probably can’t either.  But that’s okay, we’re dreaming.  We’re dreaming of a computer so intuitively functional, it makes writing a breeze.  We’re dreaming of a computer that they make the best writing software for, like Curio*. We’re dreaming about the Macbook Air.  I won’t sell you on it.  Just look at it, for heaven’s sake, and tell me you don’t covet it.  If you can afford it, buy one, right now.  Trust me on this.  If you can’t?  Come sit by me andRead More →

Sometimes I just assume everyone knows about the sites I love.  Then I realize, perhaps not.  So, I’m linking to one of my favorite sites on the internet:  Deviant Art. You know how in high school, there’s this place where all the cool people hang out?  Well, Deviant Art is where all the incredibly talented cool people hang out, and you’re invited.  Go.  Go waste an hour.Read More →

A friend sent me this article/essay on the Varga girl. I thought I’d share it here. When I started this blog, I posted that we’re all divas, we all have awesomeness inside, too often untapped, waiting for us to just freaking recognize ourselves. Because all of us women have inside us a Varga girl just like this. All of us are the fox. You may be muzzled, or careless, or restrained. You may have once sprayed your scent unwisely. You may feel used up by pups. You may be coarse and ragged where others are silky and round. Doesn’t matter. You are still the fox.Read More →

Ask not what the world needs. Ask what makes you come alive… then go do it. Because what the world needs is people who have come alive. –Howard ThurmanRead More →

No, I’m not referring to Dickens or even Bronte.  I’m talking Star Trek, The Twilight Zone, MacGyver(!), even The Love Boat.  This awesome site, that I’m sure CBS operates, has episodes from classic tv.  And not just one or two.  It has the entire three seasons of Star Trek.  Good stuff, friends.  Happy holidays!Read More →

My family, being a bit of a blended family, will be celebrating this morning, tonight, and tomorrow morning.  So Monday’s post will serve as this week’s writing post, and whatever the holiday for you, I hope it’s a wonderful one.Read More →

Or the prank call.  You decide! Check this site out, getmooh.com.  It will call you (or someone else, I suppose) at a time and date of your specification, although I couldn’t get it to move past December.  *shrug*  The potential for abuse is pretty high here, so check it out while it’s still around. At the very least, listen to the recordings, just for the amusement value.  Although, listening now, holy crap, did Alec Baldwin talk some smack to his kid or what (second recording down)?Read More →
