It was so sunny all week! And then it got cold, and then it got cloudy and now… well, now I’m looking forward to a weekend spent inside, writing, and for once I won’t be wishing I could go play outside.
Speaking of writing, and the research that goes with it, I spend a large part of my time sending links to people that I think they’ll find useful. Or bookmarking them to send later and then forgetting… In an effort to ease my currently quite over worked conscience, I think I’ll just send them one link from now on, a link to this here bloggie, because I’ve decided to list everything I’ve found (everything that doesn’t have to do with The Thesis, that is) while scouering the net right here, once a week.
So for this first edition of (cue loud booming voice) This… Week… In… Links (aaand cut loud booming voice) or maybe we’ll call this TWIL? I kind of like the sound of that… I feel like it may have been one of the hobbit’s names in Lord of the Rings, or at least, it should have been… oh my, this blog is just a perfect testament to my geekiness… BUT I DIGRESS…
Aaand we’re off :
