Welcome to One and Done Sunday. One picture and five links that are worth your time.
I hesitated to use this picture. I think it’s a bit risqué for this blog. But then I thought, hey, maybe risqué will bring me more traffic. What the hell!
You can still say that you read this blog “for the articles”. I’ve been using that phrase successfully for years.
And now, five links that are worth your time.
An excellent post from a lady who just ran her first half-marathon. Except she’s Canadian, so there’s some weird metric conversion and the number kind of makes it sound like she ran seven-eighths of the way to the moon. (Which really is what 13.1 miles sounds like to me anyway.) Jennifer at Joy Is So Yellow’s My First Half Marathon.
Theater people and writer people alike will get a kick out of this. Also, people who are a little bit jaded, yet funny. And not annoying. A.G. at Regected Riter’s How To Write A Broadway Hit.
Love opera? Hate opera? Seattle Opera Blog’s If Carmen and her friends were on Facebook (thanks Jeff for the link).
Christine at Quasi Agitato got featured on BlogHer (squee!). For those who don’t know, that’s like, a big deal. This is a great post if you’re thinking about crossing over to the dark side (as I like to call Twitter), or if you’re already there but your head is spinning. Also, it’s funny. Twitter Tips for Shy Tweople.
The best post about saying goodbye to your abuser on his death bed that you didn’t read this week: Diana Murdock I Am Now, Truly An Orphan.

the opera thing was hilarious! thanks for sharing!!
I. Fell. Out. Reading that. Too good not to share!
My little almost-eight-year old just read this with me and said, “I could easily run a marathon!” with just a twinge of a note of disgust in his voice. I think he doesn’t want me to get too big for my britches! JM, thanks for this; I feel a companionable fondness in my heart as I read it and anything else you’ve posted. I love having you as my new, also-shackled-with-what-sometimes-feels-like-thousands-of-children cyber friend!
That’s funny- my nine-year-old was just asking me why marathons were so many miles. He thinks they should be shorter. I am so proud of you for doing that! I am thrilled to have you as a cyber friend too-
Oh, the lead-up to that picture killed me!! This post has a great set of links on ‘er.
That’s what she said.
A) Thanks for the shout out! What a nice surprise.
B) Does risque really increase traffic? My wheels are turning now…
C) Playpuggle!! Loved that.
I’m not sure yet if risqué really increases traffic. I’ll let ya know. And super congratulations on the Blogher post!
Oh, how cute the centerfold is! You’re gonna have to check out my pics of our new puppy. I’m a mommy again!
