Well, for reasons I may or may not decide to blog about, I am out of town today. And that means I am writing this blog post well in advance, so some of the linkity will be “old” (by ‘net standards) by the time it shows up on here. But it’s content, right? And it’s still cool stuff even if it is (*gasp*) a few days old by the time I post about it.
- It has been cold in “Sunny” California this year. Truly, it has. I mean, I love our weather and the current temps are wonderful, but it hasn’t hit the usual highs. Nathan Bransford has a very funny, very true take on this:
Don’t let any San Franciscans trick you — yes, San Francisco is having the coldest summer in fifty years, yes, San Franciscans will complain like the dickens and act like it’s the apocalypse with a side of brimstone, but press us and we will reveal that no, we don’t want to trade with your heat wave, thankyouverymuch. The complaints are a ruse. You’ve been warned.
- I’m guessing most of you have heard by now, but vampires have finally been explained by science. (They’re bugs.) Even the sparkliness of the Twilight vampires has been explained.
- (It was a while ago, but…) The Rejectionist has proof of who is behind all the rejection letters authors get. I think she is onto something.
- And speaking of Twilight, knitting makes it better.
- And another link from the same source, complete with a knitter’s Ouija board. Awesome stuff.
- Did you know you could have a marmelade of ponies? You can’t make this stuff up.
- And lastly for today, Nathan Bransford has a list of writing maladies. I seriously hope I don’t suffer from one of these accidentally. (If I do it on purpose, well, that’s another matter.)
