Killer Totoro Carnival Smackdown #FridayRecommends

Guess what day it is? Yes, it’s Friday. Good guess.

Do you know Lois Winston’s Killer Crafts & Crafty Killers? Cool site. It purports to be the blog of one of Lois’ characters, Anastasia Pollack, crafting editor for a woman’s magazine. The first in the series, Assault With A Deadly Glue Gun, cracked me up; I’m only sorry I haven’t had time to follow the series. That will change. ANYWAY, the site features crafts, recipes, books, author interviews, and other goodies.

Whether you’re a fan of My Neighbor Totoro, Firefly, Hello Kitty, or some other movie or television show or pop culture … thingie, I double-dog dare ya to browse around on Entertainment Earth. OMG! I feel like Howard Carter peeking into King Tut’s tomb: “I see wonderful things!” Well, if by “wonderful” one means Totoro chopstick holders or Sheldon Cooper action figures.

If you’re a cat fan, be sure to visit the Carnival of the Cats. You’ll find links to cat blogs all over the intertubes, including our own Caturday posts.

Admit it: you’ve been waiting for the smackdown, haven’t you? Yeah, I knew it. Well, here it is: a cage match between WordPress vs. Blogger courtesy of Elegant Themes Blog. If you’re thinking of starting up a blog and wonder which way to go, I’m happy to tell you that Elegant Themes lays it out pretty thoroughly and simply.

A WRITING PROMPT FOR YOU: Write a fight between two animals. Read Rudyard Kipling’s Rikki-Tikki-Tavi or just about any dog story by Albert Payson Terhune for pointers on how to do it.

I was born in Louisville, Kentucky, but now live in the woods in southern Indiana. Though I only write fiction, I love to read non-fiction. The more I learn about this world, the more fantastic I see it is.
