Hey y'all! It's Friday! Here's some good things: 1. I decided to start posting again on my commonplace blog, RipeAgain. (For those of you playing along at home, yes, that is the same title as my 2008 chapbook through Finishing Line Press.) I decided this a few days ago, but didn't start posting again until… Continue reading Friday Goodness: miscellany edition
I hesitate to say that regular Friday postings are resuming, since I have no idea when I'll fail to do one and then ruin the momentum. However, I am going to attempt to revive the Friday Goodness with some frequency, as I am really enjoying life right now. I want to celebrate that. It's Friday!… Continue reading Friday Goodness
Hello Internet! It's Friday, and good things are afoot. Let's discuss: 1. I have been notified now of three separate nominations for Best of the Net 2011, which is spectacular.

So in celebration of the approaching spring, let us commence with the birding: 1. I want to build these… Continue reading friday goodness: the bird edition
a very, very simple Friday Goodness for you: this makes me feel like a kid again.
I haven't done one of these in AGES. However, Awesome Megan (I think that's how I will always describe her now) suggested it, so here we are. Perhaps I'll even try to do this with some regularity? Who knows. Anyway, onward! 1. There was/is apparently some sort of thing about two spaces/one space after a… Continue reading Friday Goodness
It's been a long time since I did a proper Friday Goodness. Don't get too excited - you're not getting a full-blown list of things today. Just one. But it's hilarious. So I follow Jill Filipovic of Feministe at Twitter, and she tweeted this today: AMAZING. http://christwire.org/2009/10/the-golden-girls-how-one-tv-show-turned-a-generation-of-american-boys-into-homosexuals/ I immediately clicked on the link, because I… Continue reading friday goodness
