I think this is a cute post on the covers for Elizabeth Scott's Something, Maybe at Melissa Walker's blog: http://www.melissacwalker.com/blog/2009/04/cover_stories_something_maybe.html

Hi Diana, thanks for the link.

susan said...

I wish 'create a link' worked for me. Anyhoo, thanks for the link, Geoffrey.

susan said...

Where is everyone today? :-(

Doret said...

I was at work. Looked for this on Sunday night but it wasn't up yet.

Lee Wind's post about national day of silence.

Have you ever written him? I have. I am disappointed that he did not respond. Still, his site is important.

Doret said...

I've emailed him titles, he sent his thanks and posted about the titles. Maybe you caught him on a bad/busy week. His site is very important. It was hard to watch that entire clip

susan said...

I've commented on his site and emailed him a couple of times and he's never responded.

susan said...

Can we not have a pitiful repeat? At the very least check out the links shared and let us know you've read them.

Lee Wind said...

Hi Susan, Thanks so very much for the lov'n! I apologize for not being more on top of responding to your comments on my site - it's just me, and I fall behind at times. Knowing my site is appreciated means so much to me, and I'm grateful to loyal readers like you and Doret for being part of my community! I really like your site, the concept of little lov'n monday, and I can't wait to explore what YOU are doing further!
Thanks again,
Namaste,
Lee

Sorry I've been M.I.A. - it's the end of the semester and finals are coming!!!

I enjoyed this post on Adam Lambert on American Idol. If you're not a fan of the show, it will probably not interest you! But it raises some thought-provoking questions about pop culture and sexuality.

Now off to visit the others...

susan said...

Lee, I feel better. Thanks. I can be a dork.

Claudia, I used to watch the show and while it has lost its appeal for me and I'm always interested in thought-provoking questions about pop culture and social commentary in general. Will add it and check it out.

Friend, you amaze me with your energy and speed reading. All these links!

I'll check yours out, but I have not been reading too many blogs outside my small circle of blogging friends, so I don't have much to share.

Color Online said...

Christine, and is there any reason you can't share a link from one of your friends? :-)

Melissa Walker said...

Thanks for the love--what a great idea!

Aerin said...

I <3 Lee.

BUT right now, I'm plugging Cindy's new book, so it's not really celebrating the blog of a fellow blogger, but definitely the work of one!!!

Here are two posts you MUST NOT miss!
