Links for Lazy Writer Like Me: Real-Life Children Dressed as Cabbage Patch Dolls and the Veronica Mars Movie!

How is the new year treating all of you so far? It's hibernation mode here in Minneapolis. I'll be getting out today to run some errands. I've been planning my layers for the past 12 hours. 

A comment on last week's Out of Context Photo Caption Contest: Apparently plenty of people had captions they were willing to text me but chose to not post due to their potentially racist overtones. Well, racist schmasist—and also, I will try to post less photos with Asian people in them?

A few other recent happenings: I'm working on a new approach to to-do listing that I'll share in a few weeks; apparently I like the idea of recapping happenings on a Tuesday; I don't plan to continue my use of the word happenings

Here are some things I found on the internet that I felt compelled to share:

I'm fascinated with sleep the way a starving person is fascinated with food. I'm also a voyeur who wants to know what other people do all day and night and how writers write, etc. Here is an article about famous writers' sleep habits. 

If there were no legal ramifications, I think I would do something like this. I know it's fraud and bla bla bla, so...I mean, I probably wouldn't do this. But I'd want to.

If you're not aware of the fact that I'm obviously unstable or of my underwater obsession, then you might be surprised that I felt a little weepy at learning there is a place in this country where you can go watch freakin mermaids. Yes, I know they're not real mermaids. Don't matter.


Your comments are why I get out of bed in the morning. Just kidding. But I do like them.
