Read this as soon as you can. It's wonderful.
It's been an angsty couple of weeks: turns out after you beat cancer doctors are EXTRA VIGILANT about everything, so I'm tired of imaging rooms and MRI tubes and everything is fine, but it's been moderately stressful. This is purely background information for today's post, which I warn you is regarding the "BUT WHY ARE… Continue reading But I Should Smile More
Disclaimer: I received an ARC of this novel from the author for review. I did not receive compensation; all opinions are my own. Ok. First, let me say it's come to my attention (via this book) that there's an annoying lack of dystopian-near-future novels out there from non-Christian perspectives. Hang onto that thought, because I'm… Continue reading Review: Knight in Paper Armor, by Nicholas Conley
I must be feeling more like a human. Things in my brain are starting to work again. I am occasionally asked by non-writers where ideas come from. Honestly, not that often lately because I don't talk about writing as much anymore to non-writers (boring people is a great way to STAY socially distanced). But still,… Continue reading Writing Prompt
Yesterday I mentioned my spellchecker on WordPress keeps trying to change "velociraptor" to "velocipede" and it horrified me. Because centipedes are a nightmare for me, and I have a GOOD imagination. In order to either put a real face to the multi-legged, fast moving, venomous creature I had in my head, I looked up "velocipede".… Continue reading So…that’s NOT what I envisioned
Apologies for the lack of posting...I'm not funny right now. I haven't been funny for a while, and some days I wonder if I ever will be again. But history repeats itself in terrible fashion trends ($20 for a hair scrunchie I hated in the 90's? Fuck. No.) and in depressive cycles, so eventually things… Continue reading Yeah yeah, it’s Greek to me, too.
Today is a bad day. So, I'm taking a moment to laugh about two horribly inept attempts at interacting I've received recently. Humans are fascinating creatures, you guys. Last month, two friends and my therapist (yes, I have a therapist. I had cancer: OF COURSE I have a therapist) talked me into trying online dating.… Continue reading But…Does this EVER work for them?
I received an ARC of this book for review via NetGalley. If you follow along with my reviews and my blog, you'll know I'm an exceptional sleeper. I am happy to nod off mid-sentence or mid-movie whenever necessary, so it's rare for me to pick up something I'm willing to lose sleep over. I lost… Continue reading Review: Sin Eater by Megan Campisi
Yesterday I had a couple recovery milestones worth writing about. I had a "survivorship" appointment with oncology, and all my tests confirm I'm pretty much back to normal (in my case, I suppose abnormal is the correct word but we're talking physically, here, not mentally) other than fatigue/stamina. So other than seeing my oncologist every… Continue reading This. Is. (not) SPARTA
A couple of days ago, I was hanging out with my brothers and sisters and some other dogs, when my super favorite human, Angie, introduced me to an obnoxiously HUGE dog and some weird tall lady. I was pretty nervous: I've only been alive for 11 weeks, and that dog was big and scary looking,… Continue reading My Name is Minerva. This House is Mine.
