Links: A Little Goofiness

Workspace with computer, journal, books, coffee, and glasses.Hey everyone! It’s Wednesday! That means the week is half over; you got this!

We’re in this weird time between Christmas and New Year’s that always throws me off. It’s like this seasonal purgatory and I don’t know why December shouldn’t end with Christmas. Get us off this ride!

A slightly shorter links post this time, but all the links are silly and fun. I hope they bring you joy!

See you all on the other side, lovelies!

What a discovery to make! And yes, there are pictures in the Twitter thread.

I remember posting a still of this one on a links post way back this year. Well the trailer is out and I feel like Romancelandia is rightfully abuzz. Can’t wait! And thank you to everyone who sent it to me!

Continuing the Jorts and Jeans discourse from last time, here is a compendium of Jortses (ginger cats) throughout history.

I grew up in a rural area and admittedly, watching a Ford or Chevy commercial can make me homesick with his schmaltzy combo of open road footage and light country music. A friend sent me this and I was howling:

Don’t forget to share what cool or interesting things you’ve seen, read, or listened to this week! And if you have anything you think we’d like to post on a future Wednesday Links, send it my way!

    That calendar is incredible! My sister and I had the last Men of Mortuaries calendar and we would always get comments from guests. It’s been almost 15 years but I still wish they’d made more.

    Jorts is wonderful. I’m sure you’ve seen this essay about “buttering Jorts;” it’s equally so.

    Parked Out by the Lake is great, also endless. Thanks for sharing it.

    How many socks died to pack his package in Parked Out by the Lake!?

    I cannot wait for THE LOST CITY. Channing Tatum and Sandra Bullock seem to have great chemistry, Daniel Radcliffe is an inspired choice for a villain, and the Brad Pitt appearance is perfect (that hair flip at the end is *chef’s kiss*). I am fervently hoping it lives up to all my expectations!

    Amanda – Thank you! As always, these links (and the comments) are a joy and one of the highlights of my week. Very stoked because Lost City seems like a great movie to watch with my not-quite adult/not-quite child tween.

    Darlynne – thanks for the link to that brilliant essay!

  6. Maureen says:

    I loved all these links! This is the first I’ve heard of The Lost City, and now I can’t wait!

  7. Emily C says:

    “My father was a weatherman” –
    Yup if I wasn’t already sold on the Romancing the Stone vibes and the Tatum/Bullock chemistry, that line definitely did it for me! I can’t wait!

  8. I’m really looking forward to THE LOST CITY. It looks like so much fun!

    “IM DONNY” … dying

    Were men that universally waxed in 1988? I was alive but not paying attention at the time.

  11. EC Spurlock says:

    All of this is just what I needed on a rainy, dull day when there’s nothing going on at work but I can’t leave until all the guys have clocked out. Thank you!

  12. Barb says:

    Thank you, Amanda, for a great year of links. I’m looking forward to all the gems you find in 2022!
