Baby in the House!

on October 31, 2017

 My friend, Ambrosia, and her beloved, brought a baby to my house tonight. Sure, there was visiting–but the baby. I mean… look at her. So much adorability. Both kids got to hold the baby. They were overjoyed. And I got to talk to my friends. But mostly I got to hold the baby. The dogs… Read More

Did Anybody See My Weekend?

on October 30, 2017

Geoffie is concerned about where the weekend went. So… Friday, Squish, Chicken, Big T, Mate, and I, all went to see ZoomBoy’s play. The play itself was You Can’t Take it With You, and for the record, if you are curious about this George Kaufman creation, DON’T watch the Frank Capra film with Lionel Barrymore… Read More

More Old People at the Pool

on October 27, 2017

Yeah. The title says it all. Okay– so I get into the hot tub which is usually my happy place, right?  And usually, since I get to class late and then stay and try to make the time up, I’m alone, but not this time. This time, I get there in time to hear an… Read More

Wednesdays Are Hard

on October 26, 2017

Seriously– ZoomBoy is doing the play, Squish had dance, I worked out and Chicken came over to do laundry. Busy–but bittersweet too. Kids are getting a little older and the quality of the busy has changed. So here’s the current mood, the current joy, current project, and the current surprise for Wednesday: Current Mood: Current… Read More

Still Getting Taller…

on October 25, 2017

So, ZoomBoy is in drama this year, and he tried out for the school play. He got a small part–ten words, two lines–but you know what? No kid has EVER been more excited to be a part of the drama club. He’s had long, long days for the past week– lots of late nights and… Read More

From the Archives of Pain and Sorrow

on October 24, 2017

So, I have a confession to make. About a thousand years ago–give or take a decade–I wrote a het Batman fanfic. I didn’t even know what fanfic was, back then, or that it had precedent, and it was before ZoomBoy was born, I’m not even sure if there was an A03. So I showed my… Read More

Weekend Short Takes

on October 23, 2017

First of all, Familiar Angel is out, and so far people have enjoyed it. As I said last post, it’s not Little Goddess– low angst, high speed chases and sex on wings dominate– but it’s urban fantasy (with a little bit of history thrown in at the beginning) and I had so damned much fun… Read More

Mystery Kitty

on October 18, 2017

So, I was supposed to take Newt-Dewey the Magnificent Gray Floof to the vets today–but I left the back door open and Dewey ended up having a very different day than I had planned, something involving MI6 agents and saving the world, I assume, but he could have just been plotting the downfall of the… Read More

So, How Was Seattle?

on October 17, 2017

Well, first of all, it was Bellevue, which means I sort of waved at Seattle in passing, but since Bellevue (or the part I saw of it) was amazing, I’m not going to quibble. Second of all, I need to give some shoutouts– *  Carmen Cook and her wonderful husband, Scott, who both welcomed a… Read More
