My creative time today was spent webmistressing. I tweaked some WordPress templates to work better, and moved more stuff over from my old site format to WordPress. It may not seem like much, but I always rewrite and update as I do that, so I figure it counts. Sam and I had lots of fun […]
I can’t remember whether or not I burbled about this already, but if this is a repeat you can get extra hugs the next time I see you or something. We have a working, marvelous, beautiful piano! It’s the freecycled Korg 88-key digital that I mentioned way back in November, all clean and functional thanks […]
I think I want a National Novel Reading Month. I could do a novel a day (as long as I chose the right novels, of course). I’m behind on writing reviews, but I’m wallowing unabashedly in the number of good reads available to me right now. I’ve tweaked the Now Reading widget to show up […]
I really needed another fiction author to follow, right? But I’ve seen this series of books about a werewolf named Kitty, and I finally got a chance to read them. I finished the first, Kitty and the Midnight Hour, today and jumped right into Kitty Goes to Washington. I have Kitty Takes a Holiday all […]
So, the Crazy Hip Blog Mamas want me to talk about what reading means to me or my child. How about both? You might have noticed that I talk, a lot, about reading. I think Now Reading shows at least four five of the books that I’m reading right now, and that’s a fairly normal number. […]
Please note: Yes, I am referring to today, the 12th, which is my birthday. Those close to me know that I generally hate my birthday, as it’s a reminder of multiple miscarriages and other nasty things happening around this time several years in a row. Sam and Katie managed to make #41 very nice, though. Sam […]
Disparate thoughts from a very low energy day. In fact, it was so low-energy that I thought I posted this entry last night, and never did. I has a fever. Do Not Want. Blah. Can’t brain. Short attention span means you just get links and such. Good links, but links.
Originally published at Enemy of Entropy. Please leave any comments there. I started this post on September 7, the day after the grand lady moved on to find out what’s next. I find myself certain that she wasn’t afraid, that she looked forward to a reunion with her husband Hugh and others who had gone […]
I started this post on September 7, the day after the grand lady moved on to find out what’s next. I find myself certain that she wasn’t afraid, that she looked forward to a reunion with her husband Hugh and others who had gone before. And yet I, who never even met her in person, was too upset to finish the post or even look at it again for two months.
I honestly didn’t think Laurell K. Hamilton had it in her, but A Lick of Frost moved me to tears in spots. She managed real romance. I don’t even like reading romances, and I really hate crying, but I couldn’t help it. I even found a quote to keep. I don’t want to give out any […]
