Link salad!

Apologies for being quiet lately. My husband and I both caught a nasty stomach virus that's making its way around the area, and I lost several days to the ick. (Food and I still aren't on friendly terms.) Fortunately, we were fit enough at least to catch a terrific performance of Much Ado About Nothing yesterday by the L-R Playmakers, which perked us up a bit.

R.I.P. to Glen GoodKnight (1941-2010), the founder of an organization that's near and dear to me, The Mythopoeic Society. He won't be forgotten. My heart goes out to everyone who has been touched by this loss.

Happy early birthday wishes to actourdreams, coppervale, and st_crispins. May all three of you enjoy many happy returns of the day!

Reminder: If you'd like to receive a holiday card from me this December, please reply here. Thanks!

This particular post at Historic LOLs cracked me up. What can I say?

There are reasons kids are scared of clowns...

  • "The wild November come at last
    Beneath a veil of rain;
    The night winds blows its folds aside,
    Her face is full of pain.
    The latest of her race, she takes
    The Autumn's vacant throne:
    She has but one short moon to live,
    And she must live alone."
    - Richard Henry Stoddard, November

    Oh no!! Aw, poor sick babies! (Yes. Yes, I did just call you and Dr. Larry infants.) I'm glad you're getting better though. :)
