You’ll never guess what day it is!!!

on October 31, 2011

Believe it or not, Big T carved that pumpkin this weekend–I was so pleased, especially since we’d sort of agreed that we weren’t getting real pumpkins this year.  Mate had carved some fake ones last year, and they’re sweet and sort of goofy and everything, and really, isn’t that the purpose of fake pumpkins?  But… Read More

A Little Snark from Alpha

on October 29, 2011

In honor of Marie Sexton’s Saturday Snark, I’m going to do a little bit of snark from A Solid Core of Alpha.  Now, Alpha does not have a whole lot of light moments–but this one is is a doozy.  C.J. and his sister Cassie have had a rough day of watching Anderson’s life unspool via… Read More

Woh shit!

on October 27, 2011

Okay, lots happening here, but not much to report. Let’s start with the big thing, and the reason that last post was up there for four days, and that is that my MacBook, my beloved MacBook, had an operating system aneurism and is currently being resuscitated and put down simultaneously in an effort for Mate… Read More

No Pictures, Only Con-Stories

on October 23, 2011

First of all, you guys are awesomesauce with the quotes– that was soooo MUCH FUN.  We’ll have to do it again sometime–or lines from songs or titles from songs or lines from books or… ooooohhhh… The possibilities are endless! Second of all–Yaoi-Con?  Total blast.  I was probably too loud and to obnoxious and too loopy… Read More

Say Anything

on October 20, 2011

You guys remember that movie?  It’s Cameron Crowe, and he’s awesomeness on awesometoast with awesomesauce…  we adore him here at Chez Lane, and that iconic moment with John Cusack standing with the stereo in front of Ione Skye’s house while Peter Gabriel blares from the speakers can move me to tears on any day–and not… Read More

Sky Sperm

on October 18, 2011

Okay, so I was walking from my car this morning and I felt a drop on my face.  I looked up to see if I’d been targeted by a seagull and while there was no such offending animal, I looked up into the sky and saw?  I don’t know.  The sky was this gorgeous Autumn… Read More

ZB the Reaper and SquishWitch!

on October 16, 2011

So we went to the Halloween store yesterday, and guess what happened?  Well, mostly some shit jumped into my bag and some shit jumped out of my wallet, and then we came home and our children went from being simply mild-mannered ankle biters, and became Zoomboy the Reaper and Squish-witch!  This whole thing was pretty… Read More

Meander Left, Meander Right

on October 13, 2011

Okay, so seriously?  I’ve got nothin’. I’ve said it before–a thousand times–the most intense stuff can be going on inside my head but on the outside?  It’s just a woman typing in a kitchen that looks like a bomb blew up in it.  You’re not looking at her thinking, “Oooh… there typeth the seeds of… Read More

Everything is Prettier in the Rain

on October 11, 2011

Yesterday we spent the day doing the birthday thang (I did that on purpose ’cause I’m cool, yanno!) with my real mom and my grandma.  We brought the pizza, the ice cream cake, a present, and my mom over to my grandma’s and celebrated birthdays.  Everyone keeps telling me what a good daughter I am… Read More

And even MORE book news!

on October 7, 2011

Okay– first things first.  The first thing is that Talker’s Graduation is coming out on Wednesday.  This is possibly the last of the series–I know that my publisher (who loves me!) is going to release all three novellas in a complete volume, and in paperback too, and I will be thrilled to hold it in my… Read More
