A New Hobby?

Plinky asked, “What new hob­by would you like to try out?”

Camille Sil­ver­man — warp and weft

I would love to try weav­ing. I mean the great big loom sort of weav­ing, done with hand­made fibers — maybe even with fibers I spun myself. The entire idea of weav­ing has always […]

If I Could Be a Magazine Editor

Plinky asked, “If you could be an edi­tor for any mag­a­zine, which would you choose?”

News­stand

Oh, that’s a dif­fi­cult ques­tion. There are mag­a­zines like Wired, that have enor­mous dis­tri­b­u­tion with­in a cer­tain demo­graph­ic and cov­er fas­ci­nat­ing sub­jects. Then there are lifestyle mag­a­zines that have the poten­tial to be very influ­en­tial […]

When I Need a Laugh

Face­book

Plinky asked: “When you need a good laugh, who/what do you turn to?”

I can usu­al­ly rely on my Face­book friends to have some­thing up that will make me laugh. They haven’t failed me yet!

Mmmm, Chocolate!

Plinky asks: Milk, dark, or white choco­late?

Dark Choco­late

My favorite is dark choco­late! The high­est cocoa con­tent around, please! I do try to go with the green, fair trade brands as much as pos­si­ble.

Milk choco­late is for chil­dren whose palates haven’t been edu­cat­ed yet, and white choco­late (while yum­my […]

Why I’m Thankful for Caller ID

Leaf

I’m not avoid­ing my moth­er, but I get tense when I see her on my caller ID late­ly.

We tend to stay in touch by email more than by phone, and if she calls it usu­al­ly means that there’s some­thing that can’t wait on email. We’ve lost five mem­bers of our […]

Three Good Things!

The last time I respond­ed to a prompt from Plinky, it post­ed with absolute­ly no context—so let’s try to fix that this time. Today’s prompt is:

Share three good things about your life right now. (A lit­tle New Agey, maybe, but it nev­er hurts to look on the bright side.)”

Partners in Necessity’ by Sharon Lee & Steve Miller

ETA: This oth­er­wise cryp­tic post was a response to a Plinky prompt that asked what book I’d take if I were called to jury duty today. I can’t imag­ine why their “share with blog” func­tion doesn’t include the prompt!

I wouldn’t wor­ry too much, as I can be fair­ly sure that I’ll nev­er be PICKED […]

Plinky: Three Songs I’d Sing at a Karaoke Bar

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 […]
