I have no idea what I’m doing

Sunday, October 30th, 2016

Possible titles I have considered for my NaNoWriMo story: 1. Code Mandatory 2. Downtime Curve 3. Hope is not a strategy (it’s a battle plan) If those three titles seem to have a) nothing in common, and b) zero real meaning, that would be because I have no idea what my story is about. Or […]

just like in The Matrix

Saturday, October 29th, 2016

The other night I was doing a building check at work, and got chatting with An Important Person. She was headed out, and mentioned relaxing, which I agreed was important, and she said, ‘What do you do to wind down?’ ‘Oh, I like to read,’ was my reply, and then I could see it coming […]

fic rec Friday

Friday, October 28th, 2016

I did a quick search to see if I’ve linked this one before and couldn’t find anything. (Okay, I found a bunch of other fic that I now want to re-read, but I didn’t find *this* one.) Take a Bite of my Heart Tonight, by lady_ragnell (It’s the Leverage AU where Hardison adopts a dog […]

traveling tip Thursday

Thursday, October 27th, 2016

Since I will indeed be traveling next Thursday, here is the most useful tip I have. It relates to food — specifically, breakfast, and the juice that is usually available with said breakfast. So, there’s the standard orange juice, right? And some kind of red juice — cranberry, pomegranate, something like that. But the oj […]

workaday Wednesday

Wednesday, October 26th, 2016

::workaday Wednesday co-opted by nanowrimo freakouts:: WHAT AM I DOING? I had a sort of plan (okay, a vague idea and zero plot points), and then yesterday I was all ‘are you crazy? that’s going to be either boring or depressing, or worse, both.’ And now I have to say, I’M JUST NOT SURE. I […]

tech Tuesday

Tuesday, October 25th, 2016

More of my adventures in technology! I turned on the voice-activated “hey siri” option on my phone, which has mostly just made me paranoid about saying the phrase “hey siri.” However, it is also super useful for setting timers when your hands are dirty. [For example, I have yet to get out of the habit […]

movie Monday

Monday, October 24th, 2016

I finally watched the trailer for the new Power Rangers movie, and I have a few questions: 1. Do we have confirmation yet that the pitch meeting included the phrase “it’s Breakfast Club meets Power Rangers”? 2. Can we please stop pretending they’re in high school? The combination of “let’s make things gritty” and “let’s […]


Sunday, October 23rd, 2016

Sundays are great, because if you need a little extra time you can count them as part of the previous week, but if you want to forge ahead and get the new week started, that works too. Or a little of both! 10/10 day, would recommend.

cloudy caturday

Saturday, October 22nd, 2016

Things I have done so far today: … hmmm… well… I mean, on the plus side, it’s raining, so I don’t have to feel guilty about not doing things outside. But I guess there is probably a limit to the number of times you can realistically get away with putting “check email” on the to-do […]
