On tap for today, in no particular order:

  • sucking up spiders with the vacuum;

  • putting on a bra;

  • buying a bag of Quikrete and some sheetrock to maybe finish out the porch room;

  • more coffee;

  • maybe a movie. Gotta love Netflix + Wii.

So here are some links I've come across through the week for your lazy Saturday surfing pleasure. First one came from Marta, about how writers have to be attractive and/or photogenic nowadays, not just good writers. Ack!

Here's a funny video poking fun at the toxic chemical lobby.

Since I won an autographed copy of Ghost Swamp Blues, by Laraine Herring, I thought it would be nice to give linky love to all involved. I was introduced to this author's work when Sarah Stockton kindly sent me Writing Begins with the Breath. Laraine's writing speaks to me on a cellular level, so when she pointed her Facebook friends to a contest on Lisa Romeo Writes, I jumped on it. And it paid off. Woo! Can't wait to read it.

Hope you have a fabulous weekend.

  1. Well, that's quite a list. I think the bra item is one the Falcon will have something to comment about, so I won't say anything. Really. Honest.

    Have a good weekend and congrats on winning that book! Woo!

    What's a cellular level for writing? Can you explain?

  2. I guess I mean that she says things that make perfect sense to me, speaking my language, like that. Had to think about it.

  3. Bras suck.

    I am however, all for sucking up spiders with the vacuum. That's my preferred method actually. Keeps me at a safe distance yet still able to engage in arachnicide.

    Netflix+Wii? What's this? You can play DVD's on the Wii, or download from Netflix on the Wii? How does this work? Our Wii has been making a terrible buzzing noise every time we turn it on now, for the last few months.

    Oooh, what are you gonna do in the porch room?

    I am always up for more coffee. Always. :D

    Have a great weekend hon! Love you! *hugs*

  4. Netflix sent us a Wii disc so we can stream movies to the tv instead of watching them on the computer. We can watch any of the movies available instantly. It's pretty cool.

    The porch room, well I don't know if you remember, but a few years ago I was trying to repair a leak and never could get it fixed. I'm tired of it looking like crap, so I'm going to give it one more shot. It will be my permanent office once I finish it up. I guess painting the kitchen pressed my home repair button. :)

  5. I'm so glad you won the book Sherri. I envy her career and I like her site- I haven't read any of her fiction though, so I'll be interested to know what you think of the book.

  6. I read the first chapter a few weeks ago...wish I could remember where it was. I think it's going to be good. :)

  7. Your Saturday sounds a lot like mine - right down to the sucking up spiders with the vacuum! Maybe we have a crazy mind link when it comes to house work *shrug*. I broke out the Dyson, extended the hose thingie, and eradicated all things 8-legged from my laundry room. It's an unfinished room in our house that also happens to have our back door in it so it's a haven for spiders and such. I spent an hour vacuuming in there yesterday ensuring that any trace of insects disappeared.

    Oh yeah, the bra thing sounds familiar too. I've become a fan of tank tops with built in shelf bras. With the heat advisories lately a tank top is the most clothes I've been wanting to wear. Even though we have a great a/c system it's hard to keep up when the heat index with the humidity is close to 110. Craziness! It's been a struggle to make myself put on pants.

    Congrats on winning the book! Sometimes it's the little victories that keep us motivated. Mmmmm... coffee. Too bad it's 10:30PM my time. That sounds pretty good right about now. A little Timmy Joe's... num!

    Oh yeah... I've picked up a TON of Oklahoma clients recently. Might have to take a trip out there in a few months. I'll let you know if that materializes.

  8. Please do! Nice to see you around here again. Too bad I don't blog much anymore. :)
