Hmm...it's Monday evening, which kind of puts an interesting slant on the blog post title. I'm looking around the living room, wondering if anyone's fed the cats and if it's time to take the white tulips that were so pretty on St Patrick's Day and lay them to rest in the compost heap (YES!). One kid is practicing her cello & the other is off with the husband at a Boy Scout meeting. I can hear the pink cat clock ticking and the G-scale, over & over again...
All of which has left me in a contemplative mood, though it's possible a severe case of sleep deprivation and the lovely glass of Hedges pinot grigio at my side is helping that along. I've read a whole lot of blogs over the last couple of weeks, and, while my evaluative faculties might be a little foggy. I thought I'd pass along a few that were worth a second look.
(You guys would totally laugh if you could see how long it's taking me to get this post done. I keep getting distracted by FB & Twitter & Pinterest. Sigh.)
Back on task. The first post I want you to check out is from blogger and writer Sidney Bristol. She and her friend Suzan are doing a series of posts in which they share their on-line dating ups & downs. And it's mostly downs, if this post is any indication.
Be careful out there, ladies. Sidney Bristol's Flirty Fridays
Next, you should definitely check out Proudly Paranormal, Baby!, by blogger and writer Adriana Ryan. Not only did she coordinate the Proudly Paranormal Blog Hop, which was a whole lot of fun for everyone involved, she's celebrating the release of Her Heart's Desire. It's her first book, and looks like a great read.
For those of you who were paying attention, the interwebs have been buzzing with talk about employers who are demanding Facebook log-ins as a precondition of employment. Check out my friend Amanda's take on the subject, in her post Privacy? What's that?
Then here's a link for those of you who never met a four-letter-word you didn't like. The author describes what it's like to go back and take the SAT as an adult. It's killer funny, but it does make me feel kinda guilty for putting the daughter through the private-school testing rigamarole. And of course, she doesn't know any of those words....
What happens when a 35-year-old man retakes the SAT?
And finally, you'll have to indulge me a little by checking out a link to my very favorite Pinterest board, Johnny Depp & Stuff ... The common denominator is magic. Yes, it's my own board, but I gave it a tag-line that I really like, and I found some really cool pins in the last couple weeks. Give it a look, and follow along if you like it.
