Wednesday Link-Off: The State of Every Other Union

shay-mitchell-maxim15-05I know on Sunday that I said that the hardest part of doing a linkdump is coming up with a title but doing these intros isn’t much better. That’s especially true when you have to think of a bunch of links that really have nothing to do with each other. So I just killed a little bit of time by rambling on about that.

So that means we can get to the links. Here’s Canadian actress Shay Mitchell.

Thomas Keller is opening a pop-up restaurant and I never pass up a chance to post a Keller link. (Food and Wine)
