Here, kitty, kitty . . .

In my world . . .
Ginger posted regarding the naming of our class at Vermont College.

Gwenda posted about the party at residency. Want to know how fun it was? Check out that poster on the wall. I defy you to find something unfun about Dean Cain.

Through the Tollbooth has a ton of posts about the recent alumni weekend that took place during residency at Vermont, starting with this one from Tami Brown.

Varian posted some res pics as well.

A new student at VCFA, Dawn Buthorn, has a blog that chronicles her writing journey starting with applying to MFA programs. I like the post where, out of all the places that accepted her, she chooses Vermont. Well done, Dawn!

. . . and the world at large . . .
Just discovered the Guys Lit Wire, focused on bringing "literary news and reviews to the attention of teenage boys and those who care about them." Contributors include YA columnist for Bookslut, Colleen Mondor, Kelly Herold of Big A little a and The Edge of the Forest, Julie Danielson of Seven Impossible Things Before Breakfast, and fellow VC'ers, Gwenda Bond and David Elzey, among others.

Participate in a study from the J.L. Kellogg School of Management at Northwestern, that seeks to understand how and why people participate in the arts. This can help arts organizations understand their audiences better. More info about it on the Monkey Blog.

I just found out what my heartthrobs Joss Whedon and Nathan Fillion are up to . . . Dr. Horrible's Sing-Along Blog. I told them I can't marry them both, but they really like each other, so we might just work it out.

Libba Bray likens writing a book to falling in (and out) of love; Justine Larbalestier claims it's more like dealing with the devil.

And finally . . . Knitting that's not for the faint of heart. Thank you, Tutaj.
