The Random Edition:
Myths about the Middle Ages: Interesting discussions in the comments. Also via the same blog, Spiderman rescues an eight-year-old boy.
JA Konrath guestblogging on the cumulative effect of self-promotion efforts. Here he is on yet another blog (*grin*) talking about what not to do when promoting your books. (And here you can find an excerpt of his latest book, Afraid, which I am far too chicken to read.)
Found this nifty size conversion chart while Jo and I were discussing clothes shopping woes.
And (because there has not been enough space devoted to chocolate on this blog recently): The chocolate chip scones I made for breakfast on Saturday. Just make sure to add more OJ than the recipe calls for to get the dough wet enough. Scrumptious.
Oooh, they look as good as I thought they would. YUM!
And they’re super easy. Even I made them up in 15ish minutes and I am not the brightest and fastest moving thing around *that* early in the morning.
Yesterday I was craving brownies and was afraid that if I made a whole 8×8 pan, I would consume it in under 24 hrs. Then, I remembered that you had a recipe for a chocolate cake or brownie in a mug on your blog a while ago. I really liked the idea: satisfy the craving w/o consuming a trillion calories, so I found an online in-a-mug recipe. It was good – thanks for the inspiration 🙂
Maybe I should have a chocolate category to make finding dessert recipes much easier on the blog. 😀
