I blogged two days in a row.
I know, right?
Anyway, I have several things on my mind today. And because I’m a huge fan of lists (it helps to control my schizophrenic impulses. *coping*), I’m just going to make one huge list with pictures for you. Lists make everything feel less random.
Yesterday’s Spread the Awesome event was about freaking delicious, was it not? Huge thanks to Elana Johnson for coordinating the whole thing. Except, I now have a massive bone to pick with her for making my TBR pile as big as Mount Öræfajökull.
Still, I will from this point forward consider Elana to be my fairy bookmother. Except don’t confuse her with that guy on the left. He’s…not her.
Contests contests galore right now—thanks, in part to the Spread the Awesome event. I am slowly building up my contest links in the sidebar as I work my way through the rest of the Spread the Awesome posts. Many other bloggers are hosting contests as well, and I’m on the hunt for those, too. *growl* Of course, don’t forget to jet over to my own Will Grayson Squared Dance contest to enter if you haven’t already. It seems I now have over 350 bloggie friends, so the 4th prize package in my contest will be awarded for sure. I’m trying not to stress too much over it, especially as I inch closer to 400 (and a fifth prize package). I mean, I can always tap into my children’s college savings. Plus, I have a husband I can farm out.
He’s a great cook.
I’m hopelessly in love with LiLa (for those of you living in a cave on Nauru, that would be Lisa and Laura Roecker). And because I love them so much (although, okay, to be honest, I’m a little more infatuated with one over the other, but it’s only because she does this thing with her glass eye that is so cute and funny)*, I would like to see them reach their goal of making 1,000 bloggie friends. So, please please, if you’re not already doing so, go follow these ladies. They’re snortalicious funny with their WTF Wednesday and D-Bag-O-Meter, etc.
This, of course, has nothing to do with their Deal with the Universe or with my expressed wish to see them film themselves acting out a scene from Twilight once they make their 1,000 bloggie friends.
But, for the record, I think Lisa should play Edward. She has such beautiful hair**.
According to a new study from University of Valencia, beautiful women are bad for your health.
Yeahkaysowhat? I think most of us already knew this. Thanks for the heads up, you oh-so-brilliant leading scientists.
Finally, please be sure to stop by Merrilee Faber’s blog today. She’s running a new workshop on creativity which promises to be pretty dang fabulous. It’ll run for 14 weeks, and if you’re looking for something to motivate you and inspire you to write, this is just the place to go. Plus, to kick off her workshop today, Simon Larter and I are
arguing guest posting on Merrilee’s blog about the definition of creativity. I can’t say for sure who won the ugly battle had the most convincing definition of creativity, but I’m pretty sure it was me it doesn’t really matter. I’m always right Everyone’s a winner in this sort of thing.
Cheese is tasty. I like it. Irrevocably so.
*Glass eyes are way cool. I like them so much, I might have lied about it.
**Laura has beautiful hair, too, but her abs probably make her a more suitable choice to play Jacob.***
***I don’t actually know what her abs look like. My zoom lens is not powerful enough to reach Ohio.
