And then, the very next day, Perry Mason was cancelled.” 2. If you don’t like it you can lump it (Young Avengers, Hawkeye) […]

Yuletide

Saturday, December 29th, 2012

Yuletide 2012 (apparently Yuletide is the short version of “While We Tell of Yuletide Treasure Fanfiction Challenge,” which I definitely did not remember) is like a vortex. A vortex that eats time. Have a few days to spare? Yuletide is awesome! Have lots of work to do? Yuletide is still awesome, but may cause side […]

Awesome Things I Read Today*

Tuesday, January 4th, 2011

(*where ‘today’ actually means ‘Monday, but I got distracted.’) This kid I once knew, by Minnow (Calvin & Hobbes) Susie in college, finding Calvin’s comic strips online. I think I was most drawn to this one because somewhere deep down in my heart of hearts, I hope I someday feel this mature about my former […]

Favorite Fandom A Game of You (The Westing Game — Ellen Raskin) Turtle was fairly sure that writing to him and saying, “Look, do you love me?” was not the thing to do. Favorite Bechdel Pass The Edge of the Looking Glass (The Matrix) She breathes in and the Matrix moves with her, as if […]

Monday, Monday

1. I have eight million blankets, and the cats are sleeping on *all* of them. I’m on the floor with a hoodie and a fleece jacket, and my toes are cold. 2. We have power and I am so, *so* grateful. Also, shoveling snow is quite the arm workout. I’ve been looking forward to going […]

Little Settlement on the Moon, by Rina The one with Little House on the Prairie and going to the moon. They could go further West or they could just go […]

If I keep telling myself I’m not stressed, will it become true?

Saturday, January 9th, 2010

It’s just that on a basic, moment by moment level, I actually don’t *feel* stressed. But I just looked at the clock and thought it was Sunday evening instead of Saturday, and had a ten-second panic attack because I’d forgotten to go to work. Also, my eye keeps twitching. Anyway, happy things! I’ve seen a […]

No, seriously…

One of the “fandoms” this year for Yuletide is Google Themes. There are two stories, both about the Tea House theme, both totally awesome. I have totally adopted the name Kit for the fox, since I have the Tea House theme on my work email (hey, it’s way more professional than the ninja theme!). Here’s […]
