Okay, you know. Because I’m a teflon duck, right? Seriously–thank you to everyone who has been supportive and kind and wonderful as I “ACCKKKKK!!!” my way through another bout of misguided literary criticism. I’ve put out five books and written the equivalent of seven (since I’m going to release Jack and Teague as a book,… Read More

I mean REALLY!

on August 29, 2009

I’ve got some fun stuff after I go off on a nasty rant about my own personal troll-heifer who has gathered up a passel of cronies and started trashing me on Goodreads. I mean, really? Who buys the high priced sequels to a book they’ve only given one star to? Either an idiot or a… Read More

A brief digestive filk…

on August 28, 2009

I owe this one to a forum buddy with the handle ‘Meaty Ogre’, who stated “Oh, I love chameleons! The flavor changes constantly as I chew! I especially love to find them hiding in Bat Guano because it has that musky flavor of Gray Poupon!” The rest of this sort of wrote itself:-) Oh I… Read More

Filking Therapy

on August 27, 2009

Thanks all, for your kind words… someday, I will have a thicker skin and a healthier outlook on this ‘critics who have the right to be rabid badgers’ sort of thing, sweartadog, but in the meantime, it’s wonderful to know I’ve got friends. In the meantime, I did a little filking on KTT (one safe… Read More

Honeymoon is over…

on August 25, 2009

A few of you know that this situation is depressing me. I’m trying to develop some thicker skin, but, well, see for yourself. She’d make that rock thing from Marvel feel like a baby bunny. And in other news? My fourth period–loud, crappy grades, happy–you know, my favorite sort of class? I’ve been promised that… Read More

Sundays Can Be Random Too

on August 24, 2009

* True Blood was on tonight. My love for Eric Northman may never eclipse my love for Dean Winchester, but until Dean shows up and kicks Satan’s ass, it will have to do. And I can live with that. * I spent much of my day sleeping, some of it reading, some of it knitting,… Read More

Oh yeah… and school started!

on August 21, 2009

Seriously–in the middle of all this writing stuff, I’ve got to TEACH? And what about the kids? They seem to need CLOTHES? And we’ve got SOCCER GAMES? Doesn’t the world know I need a day to just let my head spin and bask? *sigh* Apparently, basking is not in the itinerary. Neither is exercising–I not… Read More

Holy Shit, I’m Legit!

on August 19, 2009

DUDES! You will NOT believe the day I had! Okay–school was okay. Well, school had real shit potential, actually. The Junior class (all three of my sections are Juniors) are spinning screaming through roll permutations like a gerbil in a gyroscope–I lose five, I get six. And this will probably go on for a couple… Read More

The Cave Troll Grows Up.

on August 17, 2009

I don’t know when it happened–but it was obvious this weekend. The Cave Troll has become an official smartass. You think I’m kidding? No, no… listen–all this shit happened THIS WEEKEND! Incident the first: Yesterday was soccer season’s opening day. Everybody (except Big T, who stayed home, cleaned the house and watched The Godfather, bless… Read More

Good shit…

on August 14, 2009

Okay– some good moments and some funny moments this week. Let’s see if I can remember some of them randomly. Chicken: “Mom! I thought you were watching Buffy with us!” Me: “I am! But Buffy’s gone all darkside and I hate watching those episodes.” Shocked silence. Chicken: “FOUR SEASONS OF SUPERNATURAL, AND YOU HATE THOSE… Read More
