A few links

It's hard work trying to write thousands of words each day. Between the blog, the novel, work and my school work, I'm writing an awful lot. So I'm taking it a bit easy this evening with a few links. Yes, it's cheating, but then again, when was the last time I did a post with links. Besides, I'm also watching U.S. election results. For some reason I appear to have a $10 bet on a House race in western Nebraska.

So this is what caught my eye today.

1. Come to Iqaluit, the place to see the stars. And not just the ones in the sky.

2. I realize the 5th of November is a couple of days in the past, but this is amusing. A guy dressed up in a Guy Fawkes costume...in front of the White House. Do you think he might have drawn a bit of attention from the Secret Service.

3. Britney Spears is getting a divorce. Ordinarily I wouldn't care, but you got to love Defamer's take on it.

4. Well, judging by this story I guess I'll be getting more search engine hits for people looking for naked curlers...

Did you win the $10?

I did. Because, y'know, I might live in the Canadian Arctic and have a less than perfect knowledge of American politics, but even I'm smart enough to not bet on the Democrats winning a Congressional seat in Nebraska.

So she owes me a drink or two next time we see each other.

Craig - you know with all of that knowledge you'd make a damn fine Nebraskan. ;-)

What was impressive about Esch's campaign was that he only raised $300K vs. Lee Terry's millions and still claimed 45% of the vote. He announced today he's running again in '08. With more cash he could pull it off.

Looking forward to that drink but I must get over my election night hangover first.
