my links post can beat up your links post

Sometimes incredibly famous bloggers will post a links list that contain more than a few things I've posted in the past. And sometimes I wonder if they're secretly reading my blog. Because we couldn't possibly just be getting our stuff from the same sources, right?

Well anyway if you're a blogger with over a thousand readers please identify yourself immediately. I promise you won't be harmed. I just need to know.You know, for my ego.


Check out this deer I saw in the newspaper. LOL


Another thing before we start, I just have to say that I'm like a bajillion years late to this party but Reddit is amazing. There are SO MANY FUNNY PEOPLE on there. I apologize if my links are directed more and more to that site but seriously, they have everything. Including shit I never wanted to see in my life. But still. If you haven't, give it a chance. You'll never be the same. Just never ever, no matter how curious you are, click anything labeled NSFW. It's not. Ever. Good.


Now onto the links.
