The Return of Sunday Links

It’s been a very long time since I last posted Sunday Links, so here are a bunch of links to things I found on the intertubes that made me laugh, think, and otherwise engage in the world around me. Enjoy!

I like a good food/recipe blog as much as the next person. I also really enjoy summer fruit. This post by Butter, with a side of Bread has a compilation post of summer fruity recipes. Check them out here!

OK Go has a great music video–of course!–for their song “The Writing’s On the Wall.” You should definitely watch it. 🙂

I love cats, and I wish that our apartment was large enough to accommodate more things for our two felines. Things like this creative kitty home made out of sturdy shelving!

When you’re writing, do you ever have questions about how to create a believable character? Maybe you’re writing about someone who has a completely different background than you, and you have no idea what it would be like to be an alien robot queen from Alpha Centauri. Or maybe you want to make sure you have accurate relationship dynamics or you want to avoid tropes in fiction or…whatever. Over on Tumblr, you can follow The Writing Cafe and get access to a ton of information on pretty much anything and everything that has to do with writing.

“We don’t see things as they are,we see them as we are.” Anaïs Nin

I came across that^ quote, which resonated with me.

Day 29: List 10 people, living or dead, you would invite to dinner. Include the dinner menu.

This post’s prompt is a tall order not because I can’t think of 10 people I’d like to invite to dinner but because I want to invite 10 people that would actually get along, and that makes this imaginary dinner party rather complicated. In fact, I’m really not sure all of these women would get along at all, but I want to meet them! Thankfully, the prompt didn’t also call for a seating chart! Let’s start with the guests, shall we?

Linking you up for the day!

There is a lot of talk about organic, all natural, whole foods. A LOT. And I hear the arguments and can’t argue with them, but…there’s still something about the movement that gets under my skin. Continue reading

A Truth Universally Acknowledged

One of the blogs I recently started following posted a link to the following video, and I have to say, it was a very enjoyable way to spend my Friday night. It’s an hour and a half video about a recreation of the famous Netherfield ball in Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudice. Some of the history and customs are ones with which I was already familiar from various literature classes, but other points were new. Furthermore, I rather enjoyed seeing the details of the Regency Period come to life. Enjoy!

Pippin and Rosie

Pippin and Rosie, napping on my legs this morning

I woke up with the makings of a migraine, and even though it went away, I still didn’t have much in me by way of putting together whole paragraphs of coherent thought. Instead, below are links to various things I found interesting today as I lay in bed moaning in agony. Apparently, food was on my mind. Enjoy! Continue reading
