Lost Girl and Canadian Television

Katie recent­ly intro­duced me to Lost Girl, a show that is very obvi­ous­ly NOT an Amer­i­can show. It’s exot­ic and amus­ing and sexy—especially sexy. But then what do you expect of a show about a suc­cubus? I knew it was­n’t Amer­i­can as soon as I heard some of the ban­ter, which would­n’t fly on broadcast […]

Accessibility

When some­one asks, “Is (X place) acces­si­ble?” the answer is “no” if there are any stairs involved in get­ting there. It does­n’t mat­ter if every­thing inside X is on one lev­el but there are three “lit­tle” steps at the front door, or “just one flight of stairs out front.” Those “lit­tle” steps aren’t so little […]

Technology

LJ Writer’s Block asks: Pros and Cons How has tech­nol­o­gy ben­e­fit­ed the world? Or has it wors­ened it? Ben­e­fit­ed, def­i­nite­ly, although it has also pre­sent­ed prob­lems and has­n’t always been used wise­ly. I’ll always choose a world with mod­ern med­i­cine and a need to over­come pol­lu­tion issues over one where I’d have, at most, a 30-year life expectancy. […]

Mmmm, Chocolate!

Plinky asks: Milk, dark, or white choco­late? My favorite is dark choco­late! The high­est cocoa con­tent around, please! I do try to go with the green, fair trade brands as much as pos­si­ble. Milk choco­late is for chil­dren whose palates haven’t been edu­cat­ed yet, and white choco­late (while yum­my on straw­ber­ries) isn’t even real chocolate. […]

Promises to Yourself

The most impor­tant promis­es you’ll ever make in this life are the ones you make to your­self. I’ve lost sight of that fact, and bro­ken at least one of my promis­es to myself. I need to remind myself of a few of my promis­es to myself (these aren’t all of them, by any means).  I won’t […]

And Weather

That’s what March is usu­al­ly known for, and so far the month is true to form here in Atlanta. Thun­der­storms yes­ter­day, more pre­dict­ed for today. What’s dif­fer­ent is that it’s hot, nas­ti­ly mug­gy. I don’t recall even being tempt­ed to use the A/C all year round until the last few years, but now it’s just […]

Whether…

Such a word that is, indica­tive of choic­es big and small. I’ve faced more change than choice in the past 30 days or so, thanks to a major rela­tion­ship change. But there have been choic­es, and there will be yet more choic­es in the future—choices that I will be mak­ing alone for the first time […]
