rivendellrose: (Lucy Saxon - so you say...)
Links ganked from this morning's SkepChick column...

First, the bad - and I can't do better for my link text than a quote from the article itself: 'Dr Voussogh said that for him, a woman has to be a piece of jewellery [sic] which a man values.' Cosmetic surgeon remakes his wife, who he married for her "potential," into his vision of perfection. With 8 surgeries.

I'll be over here, too fumed at the gall of that man to think of anything actually useful to say.

For the funny crazy: Am I Dating a Werewolf? - Jezebel reviews a book that takes the usual dating types and breaks them up into categories based on mythical creatures. More interesting than your usual dating manual, at least. Quotes such as "I liked the Urban Elf very much. But I was still rebounding from my Satyr and was soon distracted by yet another Satyr; my relationship with the Elf fell away" make me giggle. A lot. Not necessarily in a way that is friendly to the author.

And, lastly - skeptical/scientific jewelry. Some pretty stuff, there. I'm always a bit leery of purchasing ceramic online, because of how variable glazes can be, but I have to admit that some of these are tempting.

In other news, I want very much to be writing, and very little to be working on my homework for class on Saturday. *Siiiiigh*

Soooooo, my very talented friend [ profile] starbirdside (AKA [ profile] miss_arel) is taking commissions. This is a wonderful thing, not only because I was able to slip in a request (yay!), but also because you could as well!

This is the person who drew unbelievably awesome Dalek Sek and Davey Jones for me, guys. You want art from her. Beliiieeeeeve me, you do. ♥

This is so not what I meant to write for this prompt. I hope you like it anyway.
