Singing the Joys of WordPress

I have to say, I do love the fact that Word­Press allows me to write posts and sched­ule them to post them­selves to cov­er days when I don’t feel up to blog­ging. I’ve been hav­ing a lot of trou­ble view­ing the mon­i­tor lately—my eyes feel like they’re danc­ing and noth­ing stays in focus, lead­ing to […]

Readings & Socializing

Note: This entry went in a total­ly dif­fer­ent direc­tion than where I thought I was head­ed! It got very long and wan­dered around a lot. I got into some­thing that’s real­ly been eat­ing at me for a long time, though, and I’d real­ly appre­ci­ate some feed­back. I should have my micro­phone tak­en away. I recorded […]

Memitude: Who am I?

From and : You know how some­times peo­ple on your friend’s list post about stuff going on in their life, and all of a sud­den you think “Wait a minute? Since when are they work­ing THERE? Since when are they dat­ing HIM/HER? since when???” And then you won­der how you could have missed all that […]

SBQ: Stitching Publications

The Stitch­ing Blog­gers Ques­tion of the Week: Do you cur­rent­ly sub­scribe to any stitch­ing pub­li­ca­tions or have you in the past? (Either in print or online) If so, which ones? I don’t sub­scribe to any at the moment, and I rarely buy them off the rack. I have hun­dreds of them in my stash, and I keep […]

Professional Educators say “Trauma is good for kids!”

That’s what their actions say, any­way. Some El Camino High stu­dents in Ocean­side received the shock of a life­time. School admin­is­tra­tors and offi­cers claimed some of their class­mates died in a drunk dri­ving acci­dent, but it was all a hoax that was intend­ed to be a hard les­son. They’d bet­ter be damned glad I did­n’t […]

Water from Stone?

Water From Rock, Eas­i­er Than Blood From Stone Gyp­sum, a rocky min­er­al is abun­dant in desert regions where fresh water is usu­al­ly in very short sup­ply but oil and gas fields are com­mon. Writ­ing in Inter­na­tion­al Jour­nal of Glob­al Envi­ron­men­tal Issues, Peter van der Gaag of the Hol­land Inno­va­tion Team, in Rot­ter­dam, The Nether­lands, has hit […]

Amazon Weirdness

I’m tired. I spent entire­ly too much time over the last 48 hours futz­ing with the library part of this site. The soft­ware I use to cre­ate that, Now Read­ing, auto­mat­i­cal­ly pulls images of book cov­ers from Ama­zon when­ev­er I add a book to the library. Ama­zon auto­mat­i­cal­ly sets affil­i­ate links up that way, so they’ve […]

Neptune On My Mind

Well, sor­ta. Katie and I indulged in a Veron­i­ca Mars marathon tonight, watch­ing most of two DVDs of episodes. It was a good thing to keep me occu­pied while doing a very, very bor­ing tech­ni­cal chore. She was doing some mend­ing, so it served the same kind of pur­pose for her. Sam’s been try­ing to […]
