Remember how I said we're going back to regularly scheduled programming? Here we go...and since this isn't a funny post feel free to skip it. I won't be offended. Since I reacted strongly on both Twitter and Facebook to this issue recently, it seems worth a full comment. I wrote about Medusa a while ago,… Continue reading Medusa Redux
Today is the 1 year anniversary of the day the Fairview Breast Center called to diagnose me with a tiny malevolent boob invader. Friday I had my first mammogram since surgery, because Oncology scheduled it months ago and WHY NOT make it the same weekend I'll already have an abundance of feels? I walked into… Continue reading Schrodinger’s Frankenboob
Read this as soon as you can. It's wonderful.
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
Ok. I know part of home ownership is critter management, and the occasional run-in with THINGS that think it's acceptable behavior to invade/explore/hunt in my house. Please recall my incident last spring with a demon house centipede or ALL THE WASPY GOODNESS earlier this summer. The ants. You guys. The ants. Sometimes I think if… Continue reading Of Ants and Corpses
Today was my last day of radiation therapy. As promised, it was significantly easier than chemo, but I'm not normal either. Well, that's a stupid turn of phrase for me...I'm never normal. Um...it's not as easy as no treatment, let's go with that. The first 2.5 weeks were deceptively easy with only a weird reverse… Continue reading Thus Ends Frankenboob
This isn't a real post. If you've been keeping up, you already know I grilled the spicy fly nest I found in the lid of said grill over the weekend. Then I grilled the wasp investigation team that filled up the grill on Sunday to check out the dead nest. Yes, I'm mean. No, I'm… Continue reading Update: Invasion
Nuke it from orbit. It's the only way to be sure.
