Not Dead Yet

I’ve been almost whol­ly AFK1 for a bit, due to feel­ing even worse than usu­al. I’ll be enter­ing “make-up posts” tonight to catch up. Usu­al­ly, I’d do them in order, but this one is too top­i­cal for that.

I real­ize that McCain has claimed to have already won the pres­i­den­tial debates tonight. Wow, his truthi­ness […]

In lieu of a real post, which would require actu­al thought…

Anniversary!

Ten years ago today, Sam took me out on our first “real” date (as in, with­out the kids or any­one else). Thank you, love. Here’s to many more decades!

Between Naps

I gave in to my body and stayed in bed all day yes­ter­day. It helped. If I’m not try­ing to do any­thing else, I can take my break­through pain meds and mus­cle relax­ants. They make me too flop­py to walk around safe­ly or use dan­ger­ous tools like but­ter knives.

I’m doing pret­ty much the same […]

59% Intrigue, 44% Civ­i­liza­tion, 66% Human­i­ty, 59% Crowd­ed, 33% Busy.

You sing! You dance! You flee from the author­i­ties!

You were a bit dif­fi­cult to place, because you like civ­i­liza­tion and human­i­ty — but when it comes to work, you […]

Ouch

How do you crack a rib with­out even know­ing it? Damn. At least, we think that’s what’s wrong. And it isn’t going any mag­i­cal­ly, dan­git!

I guess I have to go to the doc­tor 🙁

It Burns!

I was read­ing Eileen Wilks’ Tempt­ing Dan­ger and most­ly enjoy­ing it, until I hit one of the sex scenes. And then, she wrote some­thing like, “This time ada­gio,1 rather than for­tis­si­mo.2″

There was­n’t one edi­tor or proof­read­er with any musi­cal knowl­edge? Those are very basic terms.

Of course, at one point a char­ac­ter’s name […]

Review: Rogue by Rachel Vincent

Rogue by Rachel Vin­cent

My review

rat­ing: 2 of 5 star­sI am offi­cial­ly annoyed. I want some kind of law, or at least an indus­try stan­dard, that requires pub­lish­ers to label any nov­el that does­n’t tie up all its lit­tle plot threads in ONE vol­ume. This is one that would def­i­nite­ly […]

Time Sinks

Thanks to an LJ friend, I spent a whole lot of the last few days read­ing The Law Dog Files. The man real­ly does need to put togeth­er a book of his sto­ries, or maybe a few books, because he is hilar­i­ous. I don’t entire­ly agree with his pol­i­tics, but I don’t entire­ly dis­agree, either. […]
