On the blog itself, I keep in the sidebar, in prominent position above the fold, a random quotes file. Tonight I was adding one of my favorite quotes from Canadian politician Jack Layton (rest in peace). “My friends, love is better than anger. Hope is better than fear. Optimism is better than despair. So let us be loving, hopeful and… Read more »
First of all, it doesn’t matter what the clock says. It’s not the next day until you go to bed. (There are reasons I fail at adulting sometimes…) Anyway, I’ve had a pretty bad case of the eff it alls lately. I’ve got some things I want to talk about, but it takes more mental space than I’ve really got… Read more »
And there was much rejoicing. Yay. I’m going to chronicle my reading here on this blog, but I wanted to do a quick rundown of what is in this year’s Hugo Voter’s Package. Sasquan released the package yesterday afternoon, and I’ve been spending a bit of time putting it all on my Kindle. It’s been an interesting year for the… Read more »
Hi, my name is katster and I like sunsets. And an update on the situation in my last post. I called the Giants and talked to somebody who’s part of the group who’s doing the trophy tour. She offered, if I could go to Vacaville on Tuesday, to make sure that I get to see them. She said they were… Read more »
Day two of this new year. Spent it fighting a headache all day, but I did manage to complete The Wolf Among Us on my xbox one and spend a bit of time messing with the theme on this blog. So far, none of them is quite right. I’ll get it figured out. Also, Mom is home from the hospital…. Read more »
I admit I have an odd fascination with these silly bobbleheads. (As well as Guardians of the Galaxy, but that’s another story…) But here’s the odd thing. The Ronan on the right, with the full beard, isn’t on the mystery box. The Internet isn’t clearing it up either. What’s going on here?
So…with some trepidation, I decided to participate in the Reddit Secret Santa. Yes, I lurk on Reddit. A box from UPS showed up yesterday. I didn’t really have the time to properly disassemble it, although I did open it before I remembered about Secret Santa. And thus…a proper unveiling. It’s a box. A very secret box. Packing peanuts! Best gift… Read more »
This is Ebony. She is a big part of why, instead of some big introductory post, you get this. Because right now, I am tired, worn through, and otherwise about to crash out with a migraine. This is partially due to a certain cat deciding that nighttime is not for sleeping. Hopefully, I’ll be more coherent tomorrow.
Because everything is made better by having some long fancy code name, this is Operation Gd Jb Mo Pa. The name comes from a shorthand advertisement that read something like ‘f u cn rd ts u cn gt gd jb mo pa.’ Took a state exam. And now I put in my first job application to join one of the… Read more »
I start with the best of intentions and I never quite manage to succeed. I need to devote more time in my life to things like my weblog but there’s always something getting in the way. I need to devote time to finding a new job. The one I’ve got is nice, but it’s been nearly six and a half… Read more »
So I was reading XKCD’s What If again, this time on the subject of T-Rex calories. Halfway through the article, one of the illustrations caught my fancy, and I jotted off a quick email to my friend Cal, who moved from Brooklyn to Minnesota in the last year: To: Cal From: me Subject: The real reason you moved to MN…… Read more »
So…I ran a script on my WordPress blog to take advantage of a feature (featured image). It seems to have decided to edit everything in my LJ blog and put it back at the top of the friends list. This was not my intention. The photos going missing is a consequence of running the script. They’re still safe at my… Read more »
Fundraising Link Every year, I do National Novel Writing Month. It’s become a bit of a tradition, to the point my mother just sighs and says, “You’re doing that November thing again, aren’t you?” And as part of the fun, I raise money to attend the Night of Writing Dangerously. I’ve got enough money to go this year, so that’s… Read more »
