Links: Adele, Lord of the Rings, & More

  • by

Hey all! It’s the Links post before Thanksgiving! I know the holidays can be a tough time, so I hope that whatever your plans are, they are enjoyable and restorative for you.

I definitely have some complicated feelings this year, as this is the first time in five years I won’t be spending it with my boyfriend’s (now ex, I suppose) large Italian family. But my roommate and I have made our own menu and divided dishes.

I’m roasting a chicken, doing the stuffing, and making a sangria. She’s doing the mashed potatoes, some roasted Brussel sprouts, and making a molten chocolate lava pie. She also wanted a small Christmas tree, which we’ll be putting up. It’s the first year my cat Linus will experience one with us and I think I’m looking forward to that the most!

What are your plants?

Shana sent this our way in Slack! It’s about the nightgowns and lingerie that graced many Gothic romance novels. Do you have a favorite? There are even suggestions on pieces to create your own “wandering through the moors” look.

I’m obsessed with the clip of Adele talking about her English teacher. This whole special seemed wonderful. There are clips of Emma Thompson dancing to every song.

The YouTube algorithm bestowed this upon me! The Food4Dogs channel is run by an older New Zealand woman and is all about her adventures in video games. This hour-plus video discusses how she got into it.

Big thanks to E.C. Spurlock for sending us this link, which may appeal to you all! It’s a review for a different kind of self-help book called Poe for Your Problems.

Lastly, this link comes to you from my very own brother. We love the Lord of the Rings movies and he sent this to me at around midnight my time. I had tears streaming down my face.

Don’t forget to share what cool or interesting things you’ve seen, read, or listened to this week! And if you have anything you think we’d like to post on a future Wednesday Links, send it my way!
