Link-fest No. 9

The Shapelings (that will be the commentariat for the uninitiated) are in fine form of late over at Shapely Prose. Among many recent fine posts we have a critique by Sweet Machine of the latest "fat is contagious" kerfuffle that leads to the introduction of Coconut Crabs and Fillyjonk's quick hit on the subject of the monotony of articles about fatness that has spawned an epic comment thread with some beautiful rants about the absurdities of how mothers are perceived and expected to behave.

Wil Wheaton has been having fun with Rock Band.

Alix at Casa Hice has been telling the romantic and highly amusing story of Love at First Sight and her fabulous Vegas wedding. Alix is a damn fine story-teller, check out her Tribute to Lulu series too while you're over there, the first post is here.

The 2008 Aurealis Awards have been announced.

Neil Gaiman has won the Newbery Medal for The Graveyard Book.

There you have it, the stuff I'm inspired to share with you all today. What cool stuff have you been reading on the intertubes?

Thanks for the link Mimsey! Sorry I blew it with the new post and all. Just forward any complaints to me and I'll send them to the cable company.

LOL You do know I'm just jealous because I have nothing in my repertoire to top it don't you? :P

Hi Sylvia :) Welcome to my little corner of the net. I don't comment often at Shapely Prose but I read every post and comment, it's one of my very favourite net spaces!
