Starcat’s Favorites: Snow Day

I’m enjoying being snowed in today. The cats are sort of bored, but not me. I have plenty of projects to keep me busy.

Currently I’m listening to A Prairie Home Companion and waiting for the vegetarian Shepherd’s Pie to finish baking. Everyone else in my family is playing video games of one sort or another. I don’t see what the draw is, personally, as it would cut into my reading time. Heh heh. But they seem to enjoy it, and it’s a good day for it. [And they were rather amused when I mentioned at dinner that they were all playing video games, and I was blogging about it.]

Here are some fun links to cozy up with this weekend. Enjoy!

OK, this one is fantastic, but I must give you a heavy SWEAR WORD WARNING. It’s full of ’em. If that won’t bother you, check it out. Inspired in a sort of twisted way. I loved it.

Enjoy the rest of your weekend!
