That Which is Random and other stories

Wow, Blogger... new dashboard! Totally new. I think I've found all the controls, though. Everything looks great. And very white.

Scattered notes from the week: For the first time this year, Bellingham broke 75 degrees. Maia finally managed to get on top of the dresser in the bedroom. Lou solved a great mystery by discovering four little cat toys and the drain basket from the bathroom sink under that same dresser. And I've learned that if I read Wheel of Time just before going to sleep, I'm more likely to dream about it than not.

Now I'm looking at my to-do lists to find out what else I did, so clearly I'm as brainless as I feel.

Writers' link of the week: Rachelle Gardner on why you're getting rejections.

Music of the week: Meet HeyHiHello! I'm grateful to them and Meekakitty for creating my favorite song of the week, Wizard Love. But since half of you have already linked that off The Hog's Head, half of you don't care about a love song between a Slytherin and a Gryffindor, and the other half of you.... oh, never mind. I love this little song, Goodnight Moon, though.

Funny of the week: Engrish never grows old. This one's hilarious.

Happy weekend, everyone!

  1. Hm, I'm definitely not loving the new Blogger dashboard. It's modern, it's shockingly white, it's "streamlined," but it's not friendly... not the kind of place that sparks the creative juices.

  2. I do miss some of the color. I like the streamlined interface, and they don't seem to have switched too much around, but it does feel a little bit like staring at a very blank page. :)
