What is this? *Andrea wrote about sneaking snacks into detention? It’s the Power Rangers fic of my heart! this is totally what happened (which is not the actual title of this story by starandrea) “Oh, hey,” Billy said, like he’d forgotten they weren’t supposed to acknowledge each other too. “Jason brought snacks, but he says […]

fitbit unexpected consequence

Tuesday, February 21st, 2017

For less than a year, but more than half a year, I have been using one of starandrea’s fitbits. Most of the time I leave it on at night, because it actually does seem to encourage me to get more sleep (aka go to bed earlier). (Possibly this is a natural consequence just of getting […]

more trip in review!

Monday, November 14th, 2016

Fun fact from our day at Epcot: I got all the way into the Mission Space building without realizing it was *that* Mission Space — the scary puking ride I’d been warned about! But, you know, we were already there. And so I cheerfully departed for the “Green Team” experience (*Andrea, being far braver than […]

keeping up with something

Monday, November 7th, 2016

So it turns out I’ve fallen a few days behind on both posting and nano-novel-ing. One of those seems far easier to get caught up on than the other. In that spirit, here are some fun Florida vacation notes! 1. I love penguins. If you didn’t know me as a small child, you might not […]

Moonstruck, by starandrea I finally got to read *Andrea’s nanowrimo novel from this year, and I loved it! He raises his eyebrows. “If you’re covering up the cover to make it more convincing–” John mentally reviews that to make sure it came out right. “Then what’s the cover covering up?”

If it’s snowing (which it is), it must be a good time for a “a snowy Christmas at an inn with a cat” fic, right? Missing at Christmas, by starandrea How quaint, Merrick thought irritably. A truck stop in the middle of nowhere. He was sure it was a far cry from the airport hotel […]

Monday fic flashback

Monday, January 19th, 2015

Classic, possibly my most quoted fic line of all time: “Man, those quantrons were tough.” –First Kiss, by starandrea I *love* this series, written by my amazing sister and spanning a significant portion of my life. Words can’t even express. I’ve gone back a time or two and re-read the whole thing from start to […]

NaNoWriMo 2014

Sunday, November 30th, 2014

NaNo 2014 in a nutshell: Had to finish writing so I could feed the cat. Final Word Count (official): 50,155 (Unofficial was 50,002; not sure where the site got the extras. Maybe all my double hyphens.) Sending all my writing energy over to *Andrea, who is rocketing towards 50K after FOURISH DAYS without electricity!
