Slink’s Links

Lincee Ray | I Hate Green Beans

I’m still in North Dakota. Bonus—I’m pretty sure I have shingles. Hooray!

Here are some links to get you through to the day. Have a wonderful weekend everyone!

Chris Pratt is unstoppable to me. I heart him and his kid. And I love America. So, this is the best video, basically, ever made.

This post is a bit older, but I was intrigued by a new Japanese closet clean-out method sweeping the nation (read: sweeping six months ago). I’m definitely going to try it. I understand that I will be left with four articles of clothing, but I’m willing to make that sacrifice.

Y’all—edible gummy LEGOs. Why does this make me so happy?

Songs of the summer, ranked, since 1985. Hello afternoon reading material! Some of the positioning is questionable in my opinion, but still a stellar list. Do we have a summer 2105 song yet? Has that been deemed? Remember when you couldn’t get “Call Me Maybe” out of your head? Doesn’t that seem like yesterday? Are the shingles making me type a string of questions at you like a fool? We may never know.

Do you watch America’s Got Talent? Me too! And I’m covering it for Entertainment Weekly! Check out my recap HERE.

I also wrote a review for Big Mama’s book Nobody’s Cuter Than You. It was WONDERFUL. I read it in five seconds and then read it again. Trust me on this one.

Shingles? What a bummer!!! Take it easy and get meds fast if you haven’t yet done that. I hope it’s a small reaction so far. I had shingles during my first year of teaching (does that tell you how stressful it was?), and it was pretty rough. I hope you have some way to keep you distracted from its symptoms, and get well soon!

Shingles are hell. I hope you can find some relief quickly.


It may be North Dakota but it’s still America. Get yourself to a CVS asap. Feel better soon!

Wow, what a week for you…just read your about the day you flew out to N.D.! Hopefully you are home now and relaxing. What a drag about your identity theft!!

I get shingles when I’m really stressed out and have found Zovirax to work great. I keep it on hand to take right when I feel the symptoms coming on. It does the trick for me and the break out is very mild when I hit it early. Just a little tip in case it might help you!
