It was National Grammar Day AND Gamemaster’s Day, and I didn’t realize either until the day was almost over! It was date night, though, and my favorite GM and I did play, so at least there’s that. I’ll have to get him a make-up present, though. Do you know all those different click-to-give sites? I […]
Their text actually says, “If you pay me enough, I’d sing these songs.” I wouldn’t have to be paid, though. I’ve never actually been in a karaoke bar, but I love to sing, so there are plenty of songs that I would be willing to sing! “Something to Talk About” by Bonnie Raitt “Holding Me Tonight” by Carly Simon […]
I giggled so much while watching this video on matociquala’s journal that I had to re-post it.
ciannait linked to Handknit Heroes yesterday. Imagine you’re a teenager, and you have some special powers. Maybe even superpowers.

You’re supposed […]
If you’re a gamer, you’ve probably heard the hoorah by now. Michael Goldfarb, a blogger on McCain’s official campaign site added a lame anti-gamer slur to his rinse-and-repeat “but he was a POW!” bullshit. Sam (and many others) responded to the twit (who keeps comments disabled on his blog—afraid of a little commentary, Goldfarb?). This […]
That was not painless at all. The import feature is tetchy, at best. I had to go through the entire list of 1300+ books and fix their “bookshelf” assignments as well as add some that just didn’t import at all. I had over 1400 books in Now Reading, and I haven’t quite figured out why […]
Edit: Embedding is now disabled for the video. Foo. But you can watch it on You Tube! That’s one of the sweetest things I’ve ever seen.

Sam took Katie up to Republican land to pick up her new glasses lenses today—she went to the eye doctor while she was with my parents because they were out driving and realized that she was squinting to read the road signs. Her eyes hadn’t changed much at her last few yearly check-ups, but they […]
