In the office today after a restful Saturday spent doing pretty much nothing. First time in ages. I actually managed to re-read Alan Sillitoe's Saturday Night and Sunday Morning, starting yesterday afternoon, and finishing around 11:30 a.m. today.
I first encountered this British novel about a young, irrepressible factory worker sometime during the last couple years I was in college. It reads differently now that I'm civil unioned and raising a young son. Fancy that, duck.
Here's some stuff I found surfing my Vermont blogroll this splendid afternoon:
Cheerleaders in the pool!, via Abada Abada.
And they're off..., via Bad Colonies Motoring Cooperative.
A "gluttonous consumer frenzy", via Deadbeat Club.
Bush addresses the NAACP, via Dohiyi Mir.
"Straight-up adventure metal", via Solidstate. I'm not sure if Casey uses that term in his post, but that's what he called this band in our editorial meeting last week.
Sassy teens on bikes, via RazMarie's Rampage.
The pig stays, via Starting a Family Farm in Vermont.
