One and Done #12

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

Yeah, I know I’m late. I promised myself I would clean my bathroom before I got online today. There were a lot of things that interrupted me though, including Chicks With Guns and a Foo Fighters documentary. But I think I’ve got like seventeen minutes left.

CC took this picture during the Halloween blizzard. I think it’s cool. The Halloween blizzard is the only snow we’ve had so far this season. I am convinced it’s because one of my co-workers bought a new snow blower after the hurricane (thanks, Jan!).

Heavy hitters this week on the links. Bloggers that really don’t need help spreading the word, but if you missed them, check them the hell out.

This fed my soul, in an unbelievable way. It’s super long, but what would you expect from The Wedding Blog by amanda f*ing palmer? It’s worth it.

Betty Londergan has a new gig and a new blog. She’s one of my favorite writers, now working with one of my favorite organizations, Heifer International. Check out her page on the new blog Why Heifer

Happy Sunday.

One and Done #5

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

I got to spend my break between shows Saturday with one of my best friends that I don’t get to see often enough. We went to my favorite Indian restaurant and the food was so spicy I was swearing at it, which is pretty much how I define good food. It was divine.

That has absolutely nothing to do with anything except that I’m eating the leftovers right now. Holy sh*t that’s good! The puggles are also trying to eat my leftovers. Which would be amusing, but sooo not worth the cleanup.

Here’s your picture:

One and Done #4

Welcome to One and Done Sunday. Grab your coffee and your bacon. One picture, and five links that are worth your time.

Here’s a picture of Jack, who successfully beat Casey for the coveted nesting-in-the-pillows position on our bed, which inevitably ends in us having to change out the pillow cases because of dog butt where we want to put our faces at night.

I think the battle wore him down.
