Christmas post: A Dog's Christmas

This one still gets me. It's just so sweet. Also, I thought I read somewhere that this is Uggie from The Artist. (RIP Uggie!)

Someone dubbed Full Metal Jacket dialogue over a classic Christmas TV special and it's hilarious.

Christmas post: The Digital Story of the Nativity

I gotta admit, despite some design changes to some of the sites, this has held up really well. I hadn't looked at it the past couple of years, since I just figured that it would be out of date, especially given how quickly online technology advances from year to year. With, that is, the possible exception of Foursquare - does anyone still use that?

Awful. Just so awful.

Horses burned to death in Sylmar Fire. Warning: the pictures are graphic.

Heartfelt condolences to their owners and god bless their lovely equine hearts and souls. I hate brushfires.

I find myself wondering how all these fires started. And I want anyone responsible strung up. So many innocent people and animals destroyed by these fires.

An interesting source for short story inspiration

Advice columns!

To date, I have sold over 60 short stories to glossy magazines. Advice columns inspired me to write close to half of those stories. Whenever I am facing writer's block, I scroll through advice column letters, hunting for inspiration. For me, there is no better way to jumpstart a short story then to read bizarre letters from strangers seeking intimate advice from another total stranger.

Read the whole thing here. H/T to Freedom With Writing on FB for the link.

Pretty much anything involving kids playing hockey is going to be ridiculously adorable or your feel good story of the day. This is one of them.

This is your feel good story of the day.

H/T to Mayor McSnark for seeing to it that this story popped up on my Twitter feed this morning. Great way to start the day!
