Tuesday Post-Deadline Linkdump

Photo_24_1 Hey, I'm done! I finished all my stories and turned everything in for the final two issues of 2006. So now all I've gotta do is clean my desk and organize my files. See how happy I am? That's Rick Woods, 7D general manager, behind me there. And yes, I made that sign by writing backwards.

The Seven Days office shuts down for a couple weeks at the end of the year, so I'm on vacation, which means I'll be posting a little less frequently than usual.

Here's an extra long linkdump, to make up for my impending absence. Items of note on Vermont blogs this week:

Ann Zuccardy, owner of Vermont Shortbread — someone who had more to do than I did these past couple weeks.

• A different kind of Advent calendar, from Walter at Sugar Mountain Farm.

• Steve Benen of The Carpetbagger Report dissects the controversial White House Christmas holiday card.

• Got wi-fi at your library/cafe and looking for ways to promote it? Jessamyn has a suggestion.

• Outrageouschaos writes an outrageously funny/true post that begins, "I don't know when it happened, but I became an old lady." 

• Blogs cause trouble at church. I want to ask, "What happened?"

• From the "What the Hell?" Dept.: Amy Kirschner of Burlington Bread robs a bank with Laurence Fishburne ... in her dreams.

• Robb Kidd of Evolving Peace talks to the owner of a Take Back Vermont sign.

• More pithy observations from Caleb Daniloff, this time on the magic of public space.

• A sublime sketch diary, from the author of the  #1 book of 2006

Good batch of link dumps (as always). Particularly enjoyed Outrageouschaos' post about becoming an old lady. It sparked a whole water cooler discussion amidst all us old ladies in the office. Thanks for the heads up!
