Hey, friends! I’m afraid that my blog posts might be a little scarce for the next week or so, as my computer’s hard drive started making ominous clicking noises when I tried to process some photos on Friday and Mike wants me to leave it off until he has the time to look at things and possibly move over all my important data and install a new hard drive. (Living with an IT guy definitely has its advantages sometimes.) Until such time as my poor sweet Macbook can come back to me, here are a few fun links that I’ve been enjoying recently!
+ The Hairpin does it again, with Really Good Books About Lesbians. I’ve been mining the comments for reading ideas, and maybe some of you folks have additional recommendations? (Also good Hairpin reading material: Romance-Novel Sentence Diagrams. I have never diagrammed a sentence in my life, but you can’t say these aren’t hilarious.)
+ It’s been around for a while now, but I’ve been really enjoying the (NSFW) tumblr Unfuck Your Habitat as cheerfully forceful motivation to keep my house at least an eensy-weensy bit tidier. Plus, the moderator has an excellent collection of “congratulations/huzzah/good on you” GIFs.
+ Another tumblr that’s been around for a while? Reasoning With Vampires. Dana has been going over the Twilight books with a fine-toothed comb, giving the series the editor’s eye that she feels it lacks. The concept sounds malicious, but really, she’s thoughtful and detailed and, yes, occasionally exasperated.
+ Who wants a freakishly expensive Icelandic blanket? Mia wants a freakishly expensive Icelandic blanket. (Although I’ll settle for a freakishly expensive Icelandic scarf! Hey, my half-birthday’s coming up, who wants to give me something?)
Toodle-oo until tomorrow!
