“Shrimpanzee!” BRILLIANT!

on September 29, 2013

Chicken and I are in San Diego! Wait– did I tell you I was coming to San Diego for two days? Probably not. It’s been sort of a week.  Last night we went out to Korean BBQ and followed it up with Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs II. What I loved most about this… Read More

Chicken’s birthday, a new release, and what the two have in common

on September 25, 2013

Original Cover Okay– So Chicken is nineteen, and I’ve been a little absent on the net, because, well, birthday.  I managed to get one picture of the elusive Chicken– I talked her into coming with me as I went to purchase birthday pie, and she dressed as a slacking teenager.  That’s my sweater, by the… Read More

Look Homeward, Chicken

on September 23, 2013

Okay– I was about to start working on my story tonight– at the moment, my WIP is called Shiny! with the punctuation mark, and I’m having very much fun with it, and the story behind it– well, fun.  That’s all.  Fun and light, and for those of you who enjoy my angsty stuff, I will… Read More

Time Capsule

on September 19, 2013

Okay– so we are all aware that I suck at the baby book thing, and that I often use the blog as sort of a time capsule. I realized that October 12th is coming up– and that’s a pretty important day for me.  See, three years ago BEFORE October 12th, 2010, I was a teacher,… Read More

From the Files of Squeee!!!

on September 16, 2013

Okay– first and foremost, Faye and Barb from Live Your Life, Buy the Book made BUTTONS– actual, real BUTTONS for what look to be fantabulous swag bags that they are bringing to GRL.  Uhm… I feature prominently on some of them. Excuse me while I fail to suppress my exceptionally evil cackles– as far as I… Read More

Sleepy, with a chance of snark

on September 13, 2013

Okay– Princess got a nap today, and she blew off her workout to do it.  She also read some more of Shadow Unit, a collaborative effort between all sorts of rock-the-fuck-awesome authors, that features some wonderful characters and is, in effect, like a cross between Criminal Minds, The X-Files, and CSI.   I understand that the… Read More

I Don’t Know What to Write

on September 10, 2013

I took a nap, should I write about that? I read my own stuff– was it enough? (Well, more like an edit–I can still say I read it!) And I never feel more like shite than when I don’t know what to write! I played with the dog, but my brain’s still in a fog!… Read More

And What Did Our Warrior Hamster Do Now?

on September 7, 2013

Yesterday I did the unthinkable–I dove into the disaster that was my swag stash and– are you ready for this? I did it!  Just what I said I’d do! I ORGANIZED! Anyway– I put T on retainer, and I owe him $40, but basically his job was to be standing by.  Anytime I shouted his… Read More

10 or 11 things

on September 5, 2013

1.  In an effort to assuage a friends driving need to kill something (metaphorically– she’s really very gentle) I solicited homicidal kitteh memes.  The results are here for you to see. 2.  I have fallen irrevocably in love with this song and this artist.  Don’t hate.  She’ll have you under her power in a few… Read More

Wait, gonna, oh–yeah!

on September 1, 2013

Okay– first of all, the swag is reaching epic towers in my house, and I need to organize!  (Every time I say that I hear Wallace from Wallace and Gromet fame saying, “Let’s get organized!”  The results are depressingly similar.) Anyway– sorry I skipped the day blogging.  I had a “finishing the story” crisis, which,… Read More
