Friday, Friday, how I love thee oh Friday! (Sorry about that. Just feeling a little Shakespeare-ish this morning.) Anyway…it is indeed Friday and I’m looking forward to a family weekend. As is my common ritual, let’s kick it off with my favorite links post. What a great way to sum up all the fun stuff I found this week!

You might ask what mattress showrooms have to do with SFF.

Tor.com listed some of the best, but if you want to go straight to the source, check out Dodd Furniture’s Youtube channel.
