One and Done #6

Welcome to One and Done Sunday. One picture and five links that are worth your time.

I took this picture through my dining room window, screen and all.

It’s not a Halloween decoration.

In my defense (and theirs), I will say that we have NO other bugs at my house. But spiders? Oh, we has them.

Here are your links.

Little kids playing Metallica = awesome. Watch this video and note that while there doesn’t seem to be a bass player, there are three guitar players, one of whom is playing left-handed, and the kid who gets the solo is a chick. Sweet! They’re all like ten years old. For my money, the singer who can’t say his R‘s yet makes it real. (Thanks for the link, Mike!)

Amy Stevens lives in Joplin, MO and was on the front line of this summer’s devastating tornado. What the hell does an ant have to do with surviving a tragedy? At her blog Life From The Trenches she tells you, in a most excellent way.

My friend Amy Neswald has gone back out on the road with a show. She’s dating her way across the country and blogging about it. On her blog 50 dates in 50 states she lays out the rules. This is going to be a fun one to follow.

Elena Aitken wrote a short story about best friends and breast cancer and I downloaded it for ninety-nine cents and read it at work, and then I got all weepy and had to pretend like I got hot sauce in my eye. It’s called Betty and Veronica and you should get it.

Okay. This link. My husband came across it on a website that I can’t mention by name because anyone who knows me knows that I don’t swear, and there’s profanity in the title of the website. HA! I even made my own self laugh there for a minute. It’s a good site with lots of links to a wide range of topics, plus pictures of naked women. THIS LINK CONTAINS NO NAKED WOMEN! The link is to a collection of terrible similes, metaphors, and analogies submitted by teachers, from actual papers they have had to grade, and it cracked me the hell heck up. Here’s a teaser from it: “His thoughts tumbled in his head, making and breaking alliances like underpants in a dryer without Cling Free.”

Do you have an awesomely bad metaphor you’d like to add to the list? Happy Sunday!
