To mark the end of the month of October, the Intellectual Hooligan presents you with a number of web-bound nuggets into which any e-spider would surely be glad to sink her fangs.
- My enviably creative and observant friend Rebecca blogs about adopted objects. This is an enormously RSS-friendly blog in general – a feedreading treat. Have a look at bespectacled man with moustache – and then subscribe.
