Firstly, I like velociraptors, but I love Hyperbole and Half. I had so much fun reading dispatches from OneArmGirl that I started a blog of my own (more on OneArmGirl to follow shortly). International gastronomers Cinnamon and Truffle are my official advisers on all things delicious. I've added 'karmageddon' and 'cashtration' to my vocabulary thanks to Mum-on-a-Wire (courtesy of The Style Invitational at the Washington Post). I very recently discovered a blog about the world of children's books by a talented illustrator called Rafael López, which touches on the WPA amongst other causes close to my heart. And I absolutely love Susan Orlean's Free Range, quite possibly the best writing you can find on the internet.
Next half term the Mama Unit will shun museums for the safety of the fully stocked underground bomb shelter. All dinosaurs, plush and imaginary, are welcome to join us and avoid the crush.
