It seems we’ve all been a bit snowed in by this work week (if you listen closely, you’ll hear the sounds of Meg and Maddie shuffling to get out from under their respective piles of work) so I’m taking over Happy Hour! Muahahahaha! Which is kind of fitting, since our link roundup starts with “cats” and ends in dog worship. What? I like animals.
Also, a little housekeeping about book club. We’re moving our discussion of Lena Dunham’s Not That Kind Of Girl to November 4th, so you’ve got a little bit more reading time, and I’ve got a bit more reading time. There’s also this strange problem where every time I go to pick up a book I end up holding Dragonfly In Amber instead. How curious!
With that, it’s your Friday open thread.
