Review: New Moon by Stephanie Meyer

I fin­ished read­ing New Moon, which was much, much more dra­mat­ic (emo­tion­al­ly) than Twi­light. As in, Bel­la goes into a zom­bie state for months, and the book just has blank pages with the names of each month as place holders–October, Novem­ber, Decem­ber, Jan­u­ary, etc. I (and most every­one I know) have han­dled divorce bet­ter than […]

The Girl Is Back!

It was only a few days, but I missed her. She had fun, saw both sets of grand­par­ents and var­i­ous oth­er kin, got fig pre­serves made just for her, went shop­ping, and oth­er stuff I can’t recall at the moment. I expect that she’ll be catch­ing up on sleep for the rest of the week.

Another Homegrown Terrorist, This Time in Tennessee

Police: Man Shot Church­go­ers Over Lib­er­al Views Knoxville, Tennessee—An unem­ployed man accused of open­ing fire with a shot­gun and killing two peo­ple at a Uni­tar­i­an church appar­ent­ly tar­get­ed the con­gre­ga­tion out of hatred for its sup­port of lib­er­al social poli­cies, police said Mon­day. That makes a lot of sense. This whack­job is unhap­py because he lost […]

Sunday Night

Yes, I’m bor­ing. I hate try­ing to think of titles for posts. The girl is off vis­it­ing, hav­ing left yes­ter­day after­noon. Her cat is fran­tic. He is very much attached to HER, not US. So when­ev­er she leaves the house, he goes nuts, gets ter­ri­bly anx­ious, and is cer­tain that she’ll nev­er, ever come back. He […]

Vampyres of Hollywood Review is Up

The review is more detailed than what I post­ed here.  TCM is pret­ty cool, if you’re will­ing to read new books by unproven authors and review them. Hope, you’d prob­a­bly do real­ly well with it–lots of them are eBooks, which I have trou­ble with read­ing on a screen. They have sep­a­rate mail­ing lists to find reviewers […]

R.I.P. Randy Pausch

You remem­ber all that buzz about “The Last Lec­ture” last Sep­tem­ber?1 I do hope you watched it–it was well worth the time. It’s still avail­able, too. Randy Pausch, the lec­tur­er, died yes­ter­day. He was just 47, and leaves a wife and 3 small chil­dren. I know that he did that par­tic­u­lar lec­ture because he knew that […]

Yay! and Boo!

The good news: we’re final­ly done with the water boil­ing! It’s a good thing, too. The stores are all out of bot­tled water. The bad news: the girl has a nasty migraine 🙁 She was sup­posed to leave Fri­day after­noon for the week­end, and it looks like that may not hap­pen. I hope she does­n’t have […]
