Links!

Remember my fascination with the world's most disgusting mushroom/fungus, as seen in NY? I wrote about it last fall. It's back! Click for the newest pictures of Spawn of Disgusto.

Oh, NY cops. Once again, you're warning women about the danger of wearing skirts.

I keep seeing these articles about the resurrection of the art of letter writing. I have started to send Peaches postcards, which Dusie tells me is a thrill for her.

Celebrate fall! Look at cats in fall foliage shots.

An interview with the fabulous Kate Beaton.

A good rant about pumpkin fatigue. I myself don't understand the mania for putting pumpkin in everything, especially coffee drinks. Sometimes it seems people aren't even reacting to pumpkin taste but more the cloves, cinnamon, nutmeg--the spice profile, not the flavor of pumpkin.

More disgusting, but good to know: how to clear your drains of hairballs. With pictures!

A lovenote to the wonder of bourbon. However, they left out one awesome recipe--Brown Sugar Broiled Grapefruit with Bourbon. Cut a grapefruit in half, separate the sections, throw a half ounce of bourbon into each half. Sprinkle with brown sugar, then stick under the broiler until sugar is melted and crusty.

Barely Feral is a site devoted to porn for cats, by cats. If my cats were making porn, Willa would be famous for her ass shots, while Cain would style himself after the famous Burt Reynolds Playgirl spread. I'm just sayin'.

Re: pumpkin fatigue. I was having similar thoughts earlier today at the Dairy Queen drive-thru. They have a pumpkin pie blizzard; that isn't appealing to me at all, but it got me started wondering when the pumpkin craze will end. I like pumpkin a lot, but I just don't want it in everything. Like my oatmeal. :(
