Please excuse the linkiness today, but I have a few things I want to share with you, some that I wrote, some that I didn’t.

First, one of my posts was syndicated by Blogher, which is pretty exciting.

Syndicated on

Yay, go me!

Second, I signed up for my very first official-type 5k. It’s the Top Pot 5k, so I am doing this for my love of doughnuts.

Doughnuts for everyone! I have been debating whether or not to redo the Nerd 5K or not. You’ll let me know if you’re interested? My charity of choice this year would be RAINN, for hopefully obvious reasons.

Lastly, and most terrifyingly, I started a new blog. It’s a fiction blog, meaning I made up the whole story. It’s a romance, but I’m hoping to suffuse it with some funny-type things, too. Rom com? We shall see. I’ve been wanting to do this for a very long while, ever since I read through My Super Hopeless Romance. I really, really loved that blog, and kept waiting for the author to finish it. Finally, last night I said, “Self? You need to just WRITE YOUR OWN THING.” So I did.

I got the inspiration for it from 100 First Dates, which is my new blog crush.

If you like my new blog, will you pretty please subscribe to it or tell your friends about it? It’s kind of a big deal to me. If you don’t like it, could you not tell me that? OK, thanks.

Oh, right, the link. It’s called Office Crush. I’m hoping to update it a few times a week. Again, we’ll see.

OK, that’s all.

Now your turn: any big weekend plans? Is anyone going to see The Hunger Games? Personally, my friend Josie and I are going to get drunk in honor of Haymitch and then boo and throw popcorn throughout the whole thing, just to get into the spirit of things.

    Awesome! Congrats on the BlogHer feature! And I am so jealous you get to do a 5K for DONUTS! I would do that in a heartbeat as well!

    Yay for being featured on BlogHer! And hurray for running for doughnuts! One of my speed-walking routes is past a doughnut shop. It’s hard not to stop sometimes…

    I can’t wait to read your romance novel-blog! I do love romance when there’s either humor, supernatural creatures, or both in it.

    Holy nuts. So much going on with you, I don’t even know where to start. Congratulations on Blogher- that is totally cool! And I’m loving that you’re posting fiction. It’s already fun to read. The 5k I’m completely unimpressed with, though. Okay, JK! LOLOL! I’m so not brave enough for that yet.
