TotD: Eating and Drinking

This pas­sage remind­ed me of Sam: Peo­ple ask me: Why do you write about food, and eat­ing and drink­ing? Why don’t you write about the strug­gle for pow­er and secu­ri­ty, and about love, the way oth­ers do? They ask it accus­ing­ly, as if I were some­how gross, unfaith­ful to the hon­or of my craft. The eas­i­est answer is […]

NOLOSE 2008

And anoth­er announce­ment, this one at the request of Ste­fanie: The date has been set! Mark your cal­en­dars for NOLOSE ’08: Sep­tem­ber 26th through the 28th (Fri­­day-Sun­­day). Meet us by the pool at the Clar­i­on Hotel and Con­fer­ence Cen­ter in Northamp­ton, Mass­a­chu­setts for a week­end packed with fat­tas­tic fun, food, friends and oth­er good stuff! We’re […]

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 in for randomness […]

What do you want to read or hear?

I record­ed some more pieces, but need to wait for Sam to “pro­duce” them (clean them up and add appro­pri­ate music). One of them isn’t some­thing I would have cho­sen myself, but Todd, who cre­at­ed Live Read­ings, asked to hear oth­ers read it. It turned out bet­ter than I thought it would. And it was […]

Further Prof of Insanity: Blog365

I got through NaBloPo­Mo, as ridicu­lous as it was to com­mit to post­ing at least once a day for a month. So of course that small suc­cess has led me, in a moment of more-than-usu­al-luna­­cy, to sign up for Blog365 (oth­er­wise known as “Out of the Fry­ing Pan, Into the Fire”). The pur­pose is fair­ly clear: […]

Some of Today’s News in Atlanta

I man­aged to avoid the crime news, which is always hor­rif­ic. Okay, I most­ly avoid­ed it. The three boys under 10 who are being charged with kid­nap­ping and rape is get­ting to me. That poor lit­tle girl! Trans­gen­der can­di­date mis­led vot­ers, suit alleges Actu­al­ly, these guys seem to be suing every­body but the dog­catch­er down there […]

Finally, home & cat stuff

The last install­ment of the update—home stuff Sam and I are adjust­ing to sleep­ing at a new height. Yes—height. I’ve lust­ed after a cap­tain’s bed for some time, because of the stor­age pos­si­bil­i­ties and how much more walker/wheelchair friend­ly our bed­room would be if we could remove some of the fur­ni­ture that would be made […]

Not Quite Yummy, Not Quite Gross

A few weeks ago, I acquired almost a month of Med­i­fast dia­bet­ic foods via Freecy­cle. I’d been con­sid­er­ing giv­ing Med­i­fast a try, but the price is a bit much for a “try.” The post seemed meant for me, so I’m try­ing it. One prob­lem with diet­ing is that I just hate deal­ing with food, peri­od. That’s […]
