This One Time, in Korea…

on February 23, 2014

First of all– WOOT!  You all have really embraced Shiny!, and given that it is an admitted departure from a lot of my work (not to mention my catch phrase!) I couldn’t be more excited.  I loved writing the non-angsty, sweet as pie, bless their hearts story of two guys, working shit out.  Not that… Read More

It all started like this…  See… I was doing some housecleaning.  Seriously.  OLD housecleaning.  Pre-kids housecleaning.  Uhm, sacred drawer of intimacy housecleaning.  Yeah.  That sort of housecleaning.  Anyway– I threw “stuff” away, like you do, and looked across the street. Now, we live across the street from a church with a little private school attached.  The faith… Read More

So the family and I went and saw The Lego Movie today– and I have one thing to say: EVERYTHING IS AWESOME!   Seriously– how can you not love The Lego Movie?  A perfect blend of earnestness and snark, how can you not love a movie that laughs at it’s own meta-ness, and teaches not… Read More

See, the thing is, I ADORE writing love stories, but I have a very odd sense of romance.I have given up being a fan of the romantic gesture, or the big box of chocolates (unless… Read More

Yarn and Selfies

on February 5, 2014

Don’t take this the wrong way, but my ass hurts. Yeah, not that way, you pervs (my people, I adore you all!) but in the more prosaic sense, by the time I got from SF Airport to Atlanta (where I am blogging from, while I wait for my connector to Daytona Beach), my left hind… Read More

Okay, now that I’ve got your attention! I realized that my blogging time at the beginning of the month got pretty booked!  I’m at Amy’s Lane on the second Tuesday, and at Sid Love’s on the third, and, well, who’s going to write my blog. So I asked for some help from my friends.  I… Read More
