Happy November!

I fig­ure it’s past time I check in again. Obvi­ous­ly, I’ve giv­en up on the Blog365 thing. I did make it 9 months or so, at least.

Katie turned 18 at the end of Octo­ber, so she vot­ed in the elec­tion for the first time. I’m real­ly tick­led that her first time was so his­toric! […]

Sweet Saturday

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 […]

Review: Carnival by Elizabeth Bear

Eliz­a­beth Bear suc­ceeds where David Brin failed in Glo­ry Sea­son. What would a woman-dom­i­­nat­ed human soci­ety look like? How would it come about? Why? What, if any, role would males play? How would that soci­ety inter­act with more “tra­di­tion­al,” male-dom­i­­nat­ed human soci­eties?

Over­all, I gave the book a 2/10.

Review: New Amsterdam

I’m all infat­u­at­ed with yet anoth­er author, my friends, so I must warn you that you’ll be read­ing much more about Eliz­a­beth Bear here in com­ing weeks.

New Ams­ter­dam is an anthol­o­gy of con­nect­ed sto­ries twined around two main char­ac­ters. “The Great Detec­tive” is vam­pire Sebastien de Ulloa. Lady Abi­gail Irene Gar­rett is a […]

Boo Sickness! Recipe, Word Geeking, Reviews

This not-flu or what­ev­er is exceed­ing­ly tire­some. I should think it would be enough to live with the day to day stuff, let alone put up with this. Then again, nobody has ever claimed in my hear­ing that the world is fair.

I haven’t suc­ceed­ed in hold­ing any thoughts in my head long, so you’re […]
