Three Fun Things

Hello, everyone! I didn't post on Friday, because after hearing about the horrible Malaysia Airlines crash (I didn't know it had happened until Friday afternoon, since--perhaps ironically--I hate watching the news because it's so damned depressing), I didn't feel like posting anymore.

Then the news over the weekend didn't get any better, so I figured I might as well post today anyway. Maybe some of my FListies will also get a smile out of this.

Fun Thing One:

This new video by "Weird Al" Yankovic, called "Word Crimes". It's one of his usual smart and funny parodies, in this case of "Blurred Lines" by Robin Thicke.

I still don't know what a dangling participle is, but I loved seeing our own Live Journal in the video, as well as a little shout-out to my favorite irony reference ever.

Fun Thing Two:

Dreamspinnerpress.com is holding a Christmas in July sale! I'm sorry I was too failboat to think about posting info on it in, say, the beginning of July, but the sale is still going on for nearly two weeks so you still have plenty of opportunity to take advantage.

To add to the coolness, my e-novel Black Hawk Tattoo will be on sale for .99 cents on Friday! THURSDAY THE 24TH. IT'S TODAY, GUYS!

Fun Thing Three:

ushobwri (The You Should Be Writing Live Journal Community) is about a month away from the start of posting for it's Sizzling Shoobie Showcase prompt fest. The prompts are simple, and you can write for as many as you want:

Time travel



Unlikely friendship

Sharing a new pet, found or given

Unwanted transformation

The posting starts August 16, though there's no actual deadline. If you want to play, you will have to specifically join the comm, however (I know the link is locked to non-members). Everyone can join, though, and it's fun. :D

There. All done! I hope everyone has a wonderful week!
