Lost in the linkiness again

Kat is going to bike 192 miles over two days in support of a good cause. (You know how I feel about biking!) She’s giving away some relatively amazing prizes (such as a 4 gb Zune), plus everyone who donates $50 or more will get enough yarn to make a pair of socks or other small project. So if you or anyone you know has been impacted by cancer or a cancer scare, head on over to Kat’s and donate by September 15 to be included in the prize drawings.

The kitties do love their fancy pants chaise lounge scratcher – they spend a lot of time lounging on or near it and sometimes even scratching it. Now I’m wondering how this scratcher would go over…

Interested in toning up those arms and getting more fit in six weeks? Willing to post before and after pictures? Then click over to Carrie’s website and let her know – you could win “a prize of woolly goodness” in six weeks! (No, I’m not going to join – no better way for me to stop exercising than to join an along for exercise! Besides, I already do crunches and push-ups five days a week – and believe me, push-ups can do as much for your arms as a fancy gym. Really. Even knee push-ups, my favorite.)

Haven’t discovered Cake Wrecks yet? You are in for a treat! Here’s one of my (somewhat twisted) favorites… I think I even have one to submit – just have to dig it out and scan it.

Thanks to Jeanne for pointing me to Consumerist, which has been an intriguing and informative blog for empowered and empowering consumers. In fact, here’s something from Consumerist: a nice list of seven ways your library can help you during a bad economy. Really, if it wasn’t for the library, I’d be destitute and building myself shelter in a bookstore parking lot from all the books I’d purchased. Speaking of which…

Reading Update
The McKade Brothers: Rafe and Jared; Entranced (The Donovan Legacy); Montana Sky; Angels Fall; Tribute (I really, really liked this one); and Sea Swept (Chesapeake Bay Saga, Book 1) by Nora Roberts. A-hem.
Men in Kilts by Katie MacAlister. I have no idea why I read the entire book. I have to admit that, based on MacAlister’s paranormal romances (Sex, Lies and Single Vampires, etc), I was expecting something in the time-traveling Highlander genre. This wasn’t… in fact, it had me wondering if it was vaguely autobiographical.
Breath of Magic by Teresa Medeiros. Extremely fluffy paranormal romance. Apparently I have no shame. Hopefully y’all like that about me! 😉
