The Sunday Post AKA What’s On MY (Mostly Virtual) Nightstand? 3-10-13

Sunday PostDid you set your clocks ahead last night? Half of ours updated themselves automagically, and half didn’t. Tomorrow morning is going to be a bear, I can just tell.

Daylight savings time is a system administrator’s semi-annual nightmare. Galen spent this morning at his computer before he even got a cup of coffee. That’s just pathetic.

Carolyn GoolsbySpeaking of nightmares, the picture at left is our friend Carolyn the librarian. Her hair is not normally pink. Carolyn is the Library Director in Ft. McMurray, Alberta, and she has dyed her hair pink as part of Hair Massacure, an annual event in Canada that raises fund to support children with life-threatening illnesses. Particularly, as you might have guessed from the pink, cancer.

Hair Massacure logoOn Friday, her library staff is going to shave her head as part of the event. (I always knew Carolyn was brave. I’m not sure I’d let non-professionals near my head with sharp implements!) This is a totally amazing event, and it’s a real wow to be able to send some support her way. (I also can’t wait to see the “after” pictures.) If you’re interested in supporting the librarian’s head shaving click here. (You don’t need to be a Canadian!)

Now back to our regularly scheduled blog recap.

There’s still plenty of time to get in on that giveaway!

This week, we have two big events. On Thursday, Lauren Clark will be here with a guest post to celebrate the release of her latest novel, Stardust Summer. I was eager to jump on this tour, because her previous book, Dancing Naked in Dixie, was an absolute hoot! I will say that Stardust Summer did not disappoint, although there’s no naked dancing in this one. Lauren will also have a giveaway of Stardust Summer.

And the week will end with a bang, as we kick off the Lucky in Love Blog Hop!

Cards and Caravans by Cindy Spencer PapeBut before we get to next weekend, I’ll have reviews of a few other books for you to look forward to, including an early review of Cindy Spencer Pape’s new story in her Gaslight Chronicles series, Cards & Caravans.

A lot to look forward to this week! We’ll just have to keep springing ahead.

  1. Thanks, Marlene, for shining light on this very worthy cause!

    And yes, I’m letting the staff shave it. Safety clippers, Dahling. Stephanie, the staff member who dyed it (yeah it was a big event at work, dying my hair) gets first swipe, and I have been assured that I will have a reverse Mohawk to start.

    I’m glad to do anything to help. Chemo patients don’t get a choice about their hair – and my hair is nu’-‘in’ compared to what they go through. I’d gladly part with it permanently, if it meant no child ever has to face cancer again.
