Deep Dish recommended on TwiSlash blog

I am so insular. Donna, aka Whitlock's Girl, recommended Deep Dish on TwiSlash on November 3rd and I've just now realized this. Thanks so much, Donna! :)

Jackson Rathbone, at New Moon premiere

Clearly, he heard what I was trying to say. :) What would The Fug Girls say? They'd say, "Well Played, Jackson Rathbone."

Meanwhile, back in Canada, Starfishy considers adding a new post tag category, called "Can't Talk Now Must Find Vibrator". :)

The Fandom Gives Back

Three amazing women, two of whom I am privileged to call friend, have organized a fundraising event that, frankly, is kind of blowing my mind. tby789, Ninapolitan and LolaShoes have created The Fandom Gives Back, a fundraiser to benefit Alex's Lemonade Stand (rather than including a whack of information here, I'm just going to link you to the websites where the backstories are told much better than I could). Alex's Lemonade, through virtual "lemonade stands", raises money for research of childhood cancers.

What amazes me most about what Christina, Nina and Lola have done, is the time frame in which this has all come together. It went from zero to sixty in about three days, it seems, beginning perhaps 3 weeks ago (to my knowledge, at least) and growing in very short order to an auction that includes autographed Twilight swag, tickets to a 100 Monkeys Concert with a meet-and-greet with the band afterwards, and a weekend for two *anywhere*.

Most moving, for me, are the 172 authors who have volunteered their time and talents. In various auction formats, generous authors are offering their brilliance to raise money for this important cause.

My auction thread can be found here.

I Gotta Feeling, by Black Eyed Peas

This is from the band's official YouTube, which has embedding disabled; but it's in HD - so worth the click. I've never been a big BEP fan but my 9yo got me into this song. :) Enjoy!

Of Slums and Sultans recommended on The Fictionators

My girl Shannon, one of The Fictionators, recommended Of Slums and Sultans on this week's One-Shot Wednesday! Thank you to Shannon and The Fictionators for the rec! :D

I have to admit that my favourite day to hit up the Fictionators blog is Teaser Monday, when authors share teasers from their in-progress and/or upcoming fics! :)
