Happy New Year!

Happy New Year, everyone! Can’t wait to see what 2008 has in store for us all. My holiday hiatus will continue into the new year, only it’ll turn into a recovering-from-minor-surgery hiatus. That’s right, I’m starting the year off by having a minor organ removed.* Woohoo! No one can say that this girl doesn’t know […]

Holiday Hiatus

Lots of Christmas stuff to deal with for the next few days, so I won’t be blogging–much less on the computer. I hope everyone’s holiday is full of laughter and magic–or at least as little chaos and screaming as possible. Yeah, I’m a realist. Merry Christmas, or whatever holiday you celebrate! Celebrate safely. See you […]

Off and Running

Listening to: Rise Against, “Life Less Frightening” For several days there, I was really avoiding my revisions. Probably that whole “character motivation” thing. I had no idea how I was going to pull that off, and I knew it would be somewhat difficult, and I haven’t written anything new in this novel for at least […]

Various and Sundry

Several wildly divergent and incredibly trivial matters to bring to your attention. One or more may cause significant cognitive dissonance, as that seems to be the name of the game all over the intertubewebs today. Don’t say you weren’t warned. 1. Cats singing Christmas carols. 2. This ought to wake you up (originally found on […]

I found this site, and now I just can’t stop. $2925.00The Cadaver Calculator – Find out how much your body is worth. Much better than most other quiz sites. “Would you survive the zombie apocolypse?” is next on my list.

A Problem of Motivation

Listening to: The Weakerthans, “Reconstruction Site” “Throw away my miseryIt never meant that much to meIt never sent a get-well card…”No, I’m not talking about my motivation to blog lately, although that’s been sorely lacking lately, as well. What can I say, I’m going through some crap, but I’m determined to come out better on […]

No, I didn’t win anything. It’s just the word of the year. Look at that top ten list. You know I’m going to just lie in wait until I find a conversational opening that allows for the use of the word “Pecksniffian“. Sorry I’ve been so sporadic. Busy with various things, and having some medical […]

Something to brighten your day…

With all the snow and ice and cold and general…whiteness around, I think we need some pictures from a sunny summer day in the woods. Also, I don’t feel much like writing anything. These pictures are from this particular adventure, and I found them again a few months ago while cleaning out my inbox. Apparently […]

Joyous Return

Okay, so that hiatus was much longer than I meant it to be. What can I say…the past few weeks have been insane. The following events have occurred since last I blogged: I interviewed for a temporary job that I really wanted but didn’t get (I fail at life) I had more than one uncomfortable […]
