Happy Friday! Didja notice my new banner up there? I thought the old one was kinda busy. You couldn’t see the nav bar for the book covers. I thought, “Enough, already!” So.
NOW, because no week is complete without a little Star Trek, go check out this very, very funny post about weird and “sexy” costumes from Star Trek: TOS.
Wasn’t that fun?
Now, I may have shared this link before, but it bears sharing again. Beth Anderson writes long posts about the technicalities of writing, but they’re like mini-workshops. Most useful.
Also useful is this site for DIY natural stuff. They have fooood stuuuuuff, and beauuuuuty stuuuuuff, and cleeeeeeeaning stuuuuuff, and all kindsa stuff. I don’t know why it’s DIY instead of DIYOS, since around here we say, “Do It Your Own Self.” Still: interesting.
Here’s another one that, if I’ve already shared it, is worth another look. Aelita Andre is a little girl (born 2007) who makes the most AMAZING abstract-expressionist art. I absolutely ADORE it!
Finally, if you ever wondered why the British wear silver metal to hold up their pants, here’s a place to find out that, no, they don’t, it’s just that “braces” is British English for “suspenders”. Thank you, KryssTal, for a much-needed English-to-English dictionary. MOST useful if you have a character from one or the other place, eh?
