Whimsical weekend linkdump

Posted By on Sun, Jul 23, 2006 at 1:57 PM

In the office today after a restful Saturday spent doing pretty much nothing. First time in ages. I actually managed to re-read Alan Sillitoe's Saturday Night and Sunday Morning, starting yesterday afternoon, and finishing around 11:30 a.m. today.

I first encountered this British novel about a young, irrepressible factory worker sometime during the last couple years I was in college. It reads differently now that I'm civil unioned and raising a young son. Fancy that, duck.

Here's some stuff I found surfing my Vermont blogroll this splendid afternoon:

Cheerleaders in the pool!, via Abada Abada.

And they're off..., via Bad Colonies Motoring Cooperative.

A "gluttonous consumer frenzy", via Deadbeat Club.

Bush addresses the NAACP, via Dohiyi Mir.

"Straight-up adventure metal", via Solidstate. I'm not sure if Casey uses that term in his post, but that's what he called this band in our editorial meeting last week.

Sassy teens on bikes, via RazMarie's Rampage.

The pig stays, via Starting a Family Farm in Vermont.

Got something to say? Send a letter to the editor and we'll publish your feedback in print!

  • Turning Point Center Fights Addiction With Crafts and Community

    Burlington's Turning Point Center is a refuge for Vermonters who are trying to find their way out of drug dependence. In the stairwell leading to the center, a mural depicts a giant hand reaching down to a solitary slouching figure. Just outside the center's door at the top of the stairs, is another message: "You are no longer alone."
