The $3.65 Weekly Link Round-Up

I'm pretty much done with spring cleaning, thank heavens. I think I almost killed my vacuum cleaner, and my wash machine is giving me the hairy eyeball each time I open the laundry room door. Now it's time to set my sights on other mountains to climb so my decimated dust bunny herds will have time to consider their next move. I might just go on a spending orgy, seeing as how I got my $3.65 check in the mail from that eBook price fixing settlement. Yeah, that's what I'll do-- spend all that money....

Err... let me round up some links for y'all first!
