Quotation Mania

      2 Comments on Quotation Mania

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 »

I don’t feel like blogging…

      7 Comments on I don’t feel like blogging…

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 »

The Voter’s Packet has arrived!

      4 Comments on The Voter’s Packet has arrived!

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 »

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?

A little gift

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.

I just applied for a job.

He can’t fool me…

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 »

Derp to the derp

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 »

Night of Writing Dangerously Fundraiser

      No Comments on Night of Writing Dangerously Fundraiser

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 »
