An Old Friend

Plinky asked, “Which of your friends have you know for the longest amount of time?” I’m just going to count peo­ple I’m reg­u­lar­ly in touch with offline who are not close kin, or things would be very com­plex, as there are…

My Top 5 Strengths

Plinky said, “List your top five strengths.” 1) When I give my word or my heart, I don’t change my mind. I’m loy­al to a fault. 2) I can learn just about any­thing I care to learn. Intel­li­gence is use­ful. 3)…

Jump

This mon­th’s NaBloPo­Mo theme is “Jump.” All the prompts have been cen­tered around that theme, but I haven’t yet used them. I’m going to play catch-up here. What is the first thing that pops into your mind when you hear…

Meeting Someone Famous

Plinky asked, “Who’s the most famous per­son you’ve ever met? Oprah, def­i­nite­ly. I was on her show about ten years ago to talk about inter­net safe­ty and our fam­i­ly’s expe­ri­ence with cyberstalking.

Tired

I’m so tired of all the depress­ing sto­ries in my Face­book news feed. Every day there’s more news about all the ground lost in wom­en’s rights (espe­cial­ly repro­duc­tive rights) in this coun­try, or some­thing like the ter­ri­ble results of the…

Energy Boost

Plinky asked, “What ener­gizes you?” I strug­gle with major depres­sion (actu­al­ly, treat­­ment-resis­­tant depres­sion), so it’s dif­fi­cult to find much that ener­gizes me. How­ev­er, real­ly great con­ver­sa­tion with just a few peo­ple does it quite well. The same goes for sto­ry games,…

Recent Reading

I’ve fall­en out of the prac­tice of writ­ing book reviews, for some rea­son. There are two lit­tle wid­gets there to the side of the blog that always show the cov­ers of the books I’m cur­rent­ly read­ing and some of those…

Broken Bones

Plinky asked, “Have you ever bro­ken a bone?” Not a full break, but I’ve had a hair­line frac­ture in my left elbow and right fore­arm. I remem­ber trip­ping and falling down steps at some­one’s wed­ding and crack­ing the elbow, but I…

Defining Love

Plinky asked, “If you even­tu­al­ly break up with some­one, was it ever true love?” What sort of sil­ly ques­tion is that? If a per­son dies, was he tru­ly alive?  Yes, rela­tion­ships based on true love some­times end. That does­n’t mean that they…

Recent Finishes

I’ve been stitch­ing away late­ly, and while I can’t talk about my most recent project yet, I did add my most recent two fin­ish­es to my long-neglec­t­ed Fin­ished Works page today. The first piece is a for-no-rea­­son one, the second…
