late links

This weekend we've been rearranging our apartment to make room for a Christmas tree!  I think it was one of those projects we stood back and said, "yeah that would take an hour, tops," then five hours later we still weren't done (so we made "crownies," or brownies with cookies baked on top to give us the sugar shock we needed to finish).  I'm pleased to announce we now have room for a tree!
As for my usual weekend links...better late than never, right?  So here they are.
