edited to add: I didn't know that today is Boobquake! How did I not hear about this?! To cut to the chase, some cleric in Iran said that immodestly dressed women cause earthquakes (or something like that, I'm late to the controversy teehee!). If I'm understanding correctly, we are all supposed to show a bit of decolletage today, for the sake of science.

I've started a list of my Monday blog love links for myself, in the hopes that I won't include any that I previously had listed ... my chin dropped to the floor ... I've listed more than 850 blogs ... (that's just on Monday entries, doesn't include any other entries or my side bar). WOW! And there's no slowly down ... there are always more more more to be delighted by. :)

We went to the (Los Angeles Times sponsored) Festival of Books at UCLA this Saturday and Sunday. Two days, one girl, one guy, tickets in hand to seven of the panels, twenty five+ authors, then book signings, walking walking walking, funky ankle, bum knee, one aching back and little nourishment on Day Two and we're still alive. WAHOO! This is the life!
