It's Friday

It's Friday. I have no news to impart (except that it snowed again) and nothing pressing scurrying around my brain that demands to be recorded. So here's a few links to some interesting stuff from around the Web.

I've posted a book review of famed journalist David Brinkley's book, Washington Goes to War over at my World War II blog.

Found a new blog for writing parents called, aptly enough, The Writing Parent. Good stuff here.

Because Susan Boyle should be an inspiration for anyone seeking to fulfill their dreams, here's a song from her that epitomizes that journey.

A short film starting Tate Donovan (best known, I suppose, from Love Potion Number 9 and for being Jen Aniston's ex-boyfriend, though I will always remember him from Memphis Belle) from Liberty Mutual on responsibility. Every parent whose child has lost something or left it behind can relate to this! It's called Tony. Well worth your time.

And, a new photo of me. Is that vain of me or what? Actually, I rarely post photos of myself because I simply don't like them. But I do like this candid shot.
Enjoy your weekend!


  1. I think that's a great picture of you!

    (I loved Tate as the voice for Hercules too.)

  2. Nice candid.

    I always confuse Tate with Eric Stolz. Don't know why. Why don't they make movies like Love Potion and Mask anymore? Sad.

  3. It is a great shot. Have a great weekend yourself.

  4. Great candid photo, Melissa! You look very happy sitting there at your computer ... A true writer :)

  5. Lots of lovely links there, thanks.

    Great photo too.

  6. I was going to ask how old the pic was ... :-o


  7. You look relaxed and gorgeous, bellissimo!!!

  8. Good picture! Hope you enjoy your weekend, It is my last one before I go to work full-time. AAAHHH!!

  9. That's a great photo.
    I hate photos of me. For some reason, I always look like a middle aged woman in them:)

  10. How happy and lovely you look. I wonder how this would compare with a candid shot done mid 2008? You've come a long way, baby!

  11. I love the photo, and there's nothing vain about it if you ask me. I think people like to see what we crazy bloggers look like! I met Tate Donovan a while ago - it was when he was 'between' Sandra Bullock and Jennifer Aniston. Remind me to tell you that story sometime. (I made an idiot of myself!)
