extension time

I wasn’t going to write a fic for April. Leaving one job, first 6-days-in-a-row vacation in six years, starting a new job… It seemed like a lot to then write something on top of that. Except that then I saw Cap2 and kind of *wanted* to write something, so I started, and now it’s the […]

“where’s my cat”

Tuesday, April 22nd, 2014

I invite everyone to share my joy at this comic strip celebrating Ripley (and her cat) from the movie Alien. Note: the above picture is not from the comic! Rather, it is part of the header for Junior Scientist Power Hour comic by Abby Howard. I couldn’t figure out an easy way to get screencap […]
