Review: Exit Strategy by Kelley Armstrong

Cool under pres­sure. If they post­ed employ­ment ads for hit­men, that’d be the num­ber two require­ment, right after detail-ori­en­t­ed. A good hit­man must pos­sess the per­fect blend of per­son­al­i­ty type A and B traits, a con­trol freak who obsess­es over every cloth­ing fiber yet projects the demeanor of the most laid-back slack­er. After pulling a […]

What Happens When You Read the News?

I can’t remem­ber the last time I even con­sid­ered seek­ing news any­where but online. Whether it’s what’s going on around Atlanta, the nation, or the world, or just a weath­er update, I look there first if at all pos­si­ble. Since I’m at home and can check in through­out most of the day, it’s easy for […]

TechShop, Photography Advice, Postsingular, NoDryClean, and Verizon FIOS Danger

Dis­parate thoughts from a very low ener­gy day. In fact, it was so low-ener­­gy that I thought I post­ed this entry last night, and nev­er did. I has a fever. Do Not Want. Blah. Can’t brain. Short atten­tion span means you just get links and such. Good links, but links.

Color Clues, or Why Four Blue Sweaters Isn’t Enough

“Anoth­er blue sweater? You have four of those. Why not get some­thing dif­fer­ent for a change?”

“No, I have navy, corn­flower, Williams­burg, and baby blue sweaters. This one is roy­al blue. That’s total­ly different!”

Okay guys, I know that you thought women were mak­ing up some of the col­or names we use. Char­treuse? Why not say green? And garnet—that’s red, right? What’s this about plum, amethyst, grape, vio­let, mauve, and fuschia all being dif­fer­ent? They’re all pur­ple, aren’t they?

No, real­ly, they aren’t. We don’t make them up just to vex you. They’re all very, very dif­fer­ent, which is why we would nev­er con­sid­er wear­ing brick red lip­stick with a cher­ry red sweater. Ick!

Now there’s help for you. Free help, even!

R.I.P. Madeleine L’Engle

I start­ed this post on Sep­tem­ber 7, the day after the grand lady moved on to find out what’s next. I find myself cer­tain that she was­n’t afraid, that she looked for­ward to a reunion with her hus­band Hugh and oth­ers who had gone before. And yet I, who nev­er even met her in per­son, was too upset to fin­ish the post or even look at it again for two months.

Review: A Lick of Frost, Laurell K. Hamilton

I hon­est­ly did­n’t think Lau­rell K. Hamil­ton had it in her, but A Lick of Frost moved me to tears in spots. She man­aged real romance. I don’t even like read­ing romances, and I real­ly hate cry­ing, but I could­n’t help it. I even found a quote to keep. I don’t want to give out any […]
