An assortment of links that amused me this morning:

This is just cool. As you may or may not know, Dracula is written in diary form (the English major in me want to use the words “epistolary novel,” please humor me). So this fellow has had the brilliant idea of blogging the novel according to its own calendar. It happens to start on May 3rd, so check it out. I now have the urge to collect every epistolary novel I own and set up the same thing.

[Corollary: what if you had a book made up of two people writing letters to each other and you published it on two blogs by two people? Or would the timing just get too confusing? Hmmm.]

As someone who doesn’t strongly identify as either a Yankee or a Southerner, I find this quiz amusing. The higher your percentage, the more Southern you are. I come out at a fairly even 49%. Personally, I would add one more question to the quiz: “What do you put your groceries in a buggy or a cart?” That’s one southern-ism that I have never acclimated to. Kinda odd.

And this one is just silly (and yet not). Now we have an answer to that age old question, when are the Unitarians going get in on the holy war game? The answer: Unitarian Jihad. Again, so simple! Why didn’t I think of that?

[Corollary: What is your Unitarian Jihad name”? You may call me Sister Boot Knife of Sweet Reason.]

[Corollary 2: What the heck are you talking about and who are these goofy Unitarians anyway? Look here.]

Answers:
I’m a yank, leave it to speech therapy:
46% (Yankee). Barely in the Yankee category.

and…
Brother Neutron Bomb of Forgiveness

I don’t think that’s as good as Sister Boot Knife (Of Sweet Reason) but what is?

The Unitarian Jihad article is excellent, by the way. 🙂 I can see you participating, you extremist. 😉

I think Brother Neutron Bomb (of Forgiveness) is perfect for you somehow. Heehee!
