Penultimate Friday


That is not to say this is the second to last Friday ever, but it IS my second to last Friday of the summer, so that means in two weeks, I am back to five days a week. It is SO not fair. I've advocated for a three day work week for years now, but so far nobody wants to oblige.

Anyway... for this Penultimate Friday, I've got a little project going. I shared a link to one of the blog posts I'd written recently and though... you know... sometimes I say something intelligent... and OFTEN my brilliant friends say really helpful stuff... so I am adding a page of 'helpful links' to my tabs and I thought maybe I should ask all of YOU if there are 'can't miss' topics and websites. Most of the links I've saved are really well done blogs on a topic, but I'd also like to include some of the standard websites for critiquing, fact checking, etc.

So PLEASE, share the places YOU find most helpful (and why).



It's clear to me the Art Fairies are most popular.
And in more FUN News...

I get to meet with the fabulous Micheal Di Gesu tomorrow! He is driving from Chicago to Niagara Falls if I have my facts straight, which I usually don't... but he is passing RIGHT BY ME, so he is coming to Ann Arbor to have lunch and get the tour! You know... HWMNBMOTI and I were told when we moved here that if anyone came to visit, they must really love us, as this is NOT a destination destination... It's not like if we lived in... say San Francisco or Boston where people go because they WANT to, and you might just be a side bonus... So I am pleased that Michael loves me. teehee. (though I am taking him on the Fairy Door Tour)


That's all I got today... I have a house to clean and a lot of editing to work on... And that getting around to blogs thing I totally failed on yesterday...


Though I DO wish safety to all my east coast friends. I got nothing against a big blow, but mass destruction isn't cool, so here is hoping you all get about a level 3 storm... some excitement, to me sure, but nothing to ruin anything or put anyone in danger.

I hope we get a whopping big hurricane but we won't.
Sorry, I just do - I like them.
Maybe the last words I'll ever write...

Summer Ross said...

lets see a helpful link- I use http://thesaurus.com/ all the time in my writing and blogging searching for the right word.

A level 3???? I'm hoping for a level 1 at the highest. Tropical storms are scary enough, especially when you have kids who think a tornado will destroy the house every time it rains.

Alex J. Cavanaugh said...

Enjoy your visit with Michael tomorrow. And a three is still really bad. At the moment, they say it will be a two when it hits. That's till going to tear up the Outer Banks.

Old Kitty said...

Awww Tart! You always always say very intelligent and moreso, very NAKED things on your blog! Yay!!

Awwww have fun meeting up with Michael!!!! Of course he loves you! We all love you! Yay! Take care

I would most definitely oblige with a three day work week. Then we could hang out nude in our individual houses and read all day. That's a dream of mine...

Hart Johnson said...

Jan-I like a powerful storm, too, though tornados freak me out. I think I could get along with a mild hurricane though...

Summer-thanks for the link!!!

Angela-With kids it makes a big difference. My daughter is still a drama queen on weather, though she's 16, so I like the excuse when she wants to hunker down and snuggle a little.

Alex-you are first up, eh? I hope it doesn't get you too badly!

Jenny-aw, thank you!

Crystal-well you help me advocate then, okay? teehee

I confess - we drove through Ann Arbor last August on our way to a wedding in Detroit. And I bet our tiny, crappy southern town is less of a tourist destination than yours.

LTM said...

hey, fun stuff! Take pix of you and Michael! And oh, let's see... Lydia K always has fun stuff in her Medical Mondays... and Clarissa has lots of fun ways to kill people. In BOOKS. :D

Have a great weekend~ <3

You poor thing -- housecleaning is a pain! Me, I keep my own efforts to the bare minimum.

Shelly said...

We have been through some major hurricanes here, so I do hope Irene defies the forecasters and takes her winds out to sea-

Hart, my life is seriously trying to drive me insane lately, but I have seen the light at the end of the tunnel. It's about a million miles away, but it's a light. Sorry I've been gone so long...slowly making my way back!

And as Michael's first-ever online friend, I'm offended that I'm about the only one he didn't drive to see this summer. >:( (okay, not really. and if he did come, he'd just be in the car with me or watching me talk on the phone, or patiently waiting for me to get out of a meeting, but you know, it sounded good...)

Michael Di Gesu said...

Hello MS. TART...

How sweet. I am so looking forward to the meet AND all those Fairy Doors....

As for Erica, I did try to meet with her, but she's been so busy and never gave me a date to meet in Madison. She visits there often and I only live two hours away from there, LOL.

I hope to meet her sometime this fall...

Laura said...

Hi Hart - have an amazing day tomorrow and give Michael a huge hug from me... that door looks intriguing... tell us more :)

Boo to 5 day working weeks (yay for 3 day bank holiday weekends to finish my first draft... finally)

I've met online friends in person before, but never any fellow writer bloggers. Would love to!
