Saturday, October 31st, 2015

Look, it’s an otter with a pumpkin! Otters are awesome. (So are pumpkins.) Wishing everyone a very happy Halloween!

What the heck, why not go with another Daredevil fic? Not related to Halloween at all, but it is a magic AU (Harry Potter fusion? I’m never sure of the intricacies of AU vs fusion vs crossover). Rowan and Red Oak, by ChuckleVoodoos “Um.” He smiles awkwardly. “I was actually going to say that you’re […]

Happy National Cat Day! (I’m pretty sure my cat thinks *every* day is cat day. Still hoping we’ll get some sunshine today for him to bask in!)

workaday Wednesday

What even. Okay, so at work we all use a computer program, which we affectionately call Sage. (Not this.) But our Sage sometimes feels like it was made around the same time as the one in the video, and it’s getting an upgrade next year. There was a contest of sorts to “name” the new […]

movie review: Cinderella (2015)

Tuesday, October 27th, 2015

Well, it was pretty, and the oft-repeated “message” was overall a sentiment I can support. (Although I would argue that forgiveness and kindness aren’t really the same thing.) It cracked me up every time Erik Selvig’s actor said anything, which was fun. But it made no sense! (Totally my issue with Frozen, all over again!) […]

memorable quote Monday

Monday, October 26th, 2015

Pretty sure I’ve mentioned this fic before, but it’s one that’s stuck with me: Underground, by Margo_Kim In the true spirit of memorable quote Monday, really the part I remember is “walk in sunshine.” But it seemed right to include a little context for that. “You’ve made me happy,” Tony said. “When I had no […]

The nuthatches have arrived! I am both excited and relieved. After the (eventual) success of having a hummingbird feeder this summer, a songbird feeder seemed to be the natural progression. I figured a feeder would be: 1. something for the cat to watch 2. give me a reason to go out on the balcony in […]

8 days to go!

Saturday, October 24th, 2015

This year my workplace decided to decorate for Halloween. It’s *horrible.* I mean, aesthetically speaking, they did a nice job, but there’s no way you can present spiders and skulls that I’m going to love. (There is a spider on the bathroom mirror. I *know* it’s plastic, and I still get freaked out.) I’m more […]

Every time I see this title on my pinboard page, it makes me smile. Matt Punches a Robot, and Other Stories, by Hinn_Raven The news was cheerfully reporting about the newest debacle—the phrase “rogue AI” was repeated so often that Foggy was fairly sure that their lives had just taken a sharp swerve into Sci-Fi […]

procrastination ahoy!

Thursday, October 22nd, 2015

So far this morning I have spent nearly an hour *not* writing a post. Apparently I don’t have much to say? Or maybe too much to say? A partial list of things I considered posting about, but couldn’t decide on, because I really need to go get ready for work: 1. the weather — a […]
