Books Books Books!

Yes, the girl and I man­aged a library run (to the GOOD library) on Fri­day. It took more time and ener­gy than expect­ed, of course, but we got a bunch of very good books.

I read My Big Fat Super­nat­ur­al Hon­ey­moon last night, with much gig­gling. The sto­ries were a bit uneven (nor­mal […]

SBQ: Sick of a WIP?

The Stitch­ing Blogger’s Ques­tion of the Week is: Do you ever get to a point work­ing on a project that you’ve had for so long, you start to won­der what pos­sessed you to start it in the first place?

Of course! It has always hap­pened with pat­terns I chose to do for some­one else, though, […]

Book Review at Fibrant Living

I final­ly got the book review up for Women, Work and Autoim­mune Dis­ease over at Fibrant Liv­ing.

Vicious Teacher Leads Bullying of Disabled Child

Teacher lets kinder­garten stu­dents vote 5-year-old “out of the class”

After each class­mate was allowed to say what they didn’t like about Barton’s 5-year-old son, Alex, his Morn­ing­side Ele­men­tary teacher Wendy Por­tillo said they were going to take a vote, Bar­ton said.

By a 14 to 2 mar­gin, the stu­dents vot­ed Alex — who is […]

Fibrant Living — Oxygen for CFS

Today’s post is at Fibrant Liv­ing.

Civil Rights Win in Florida

Months ago, I post­ed about Ponce de Leon High School in Flori­da ban­ning the wear or dis­play of any kind of gay pride sym­bols or words, claim­ing that they indi­cat­ed involve­ment in an “ille­gal orga­ni­za­tion.” I lat­er found out that the prob­lem start­ed last fall, when a les­bian stu­dent com­plained that she was being harassed.

Review: From Dead to Worse by Charlaine Harris

After read­ing From Dead to Worse, I feel as if Char­laine Har­ris is fin­ished with the South­ern Vam­pire Mys­ter­ies. If so, she’s doing so well, as vol­ume sev­en is the most sat­is­fy­ing book of the series.

This is not a “hap­pi­ly ever after” book, but it isn’t an “oh my God what’s going to hap­pen […]

Fibrant Living: FMS or Depression?

I post­ed over at Fibrant Liv­ing today, about the dif­fer­ence between fibromyal­gia and depres­sion.

Diane Duane Rocks

Back when the Meisha Mer­lin ware­house was being cleaned out, Sam picked up a copy of The Sword and the Drag­on, first vol­ume of the Epic Tales of the Five by Diane Duane that MM put out. It con­tains The Door Into Fire and The Door Into Shad­ow.

I’ve want­ed my own copies of the […]

R.I.P. Robert Asprin

I only encoun­tered him per­son­al­ly once, on a pan­el the first time I attend­ed a con (Drag­on Con, 1988 or so?). I thought he was an arro­gant jerk. I’ve heard from oth­ers that he could be quite nice, so maybe it was some kind of schtick. I did enjoy all the Thieves World books, despite […]
