Link Blitz

Three-day weekend! Three-day weekend! Three-day weekend!

(And let's not forget to remember our fallen soldiers...)

Spent last night eating at Buffalo Wild Wings and watching my husband battle to the death in a Shaq Fu tournament. Probably one of the most ridiculous video games ever created.

This weekend I will hopefully look into moving trucks and see if I can't do this Moscow thing as cheaply as possible...

  1. Oh are you moving to Moscow, Idaho? I used to live there. The palouse is lovely this time of year and the weather isn't so bad during the winters. Plus Spokane is a hop skip and a jump away.

    1. Oh, you lived there?? Glad to hear good things about it! Working on finding a job more than anything right now. ;)

  2. I'd love to check out some of these links, but I've really got to get busy with the WIP. Best wishes with the move and job hunt. ^_^

  3. These are great links. Thanks, Charlie. :)

  4. I did not even know Shaqfu was a game.

  5. These are great links - thanks so much for sharing! I just found your blog - new follower :)

  6. I'd like to add another entry to the list of popular books that almost didn't make it...Twilight. Say what you will about the books, after receiving over a dozen rejection letters, Stephenie Meyer is known around the world (in at least 25 languages) and still laughing her way to the bank.

    Now why can't that be MY success story?!

    Oh, yeah...cuz I've gotta finish writing it, first....
