The one thing I can’t stand is circulating plates of appetizers. They never come to where I am, and I end up not getting any of them.

I’m reading Wilder Girls. The girls at Raxter boarding school, on an isolated island off the coast of Maine, are separated from the world. A mysterious disease called the Tox broke out and caused the girls, the adults, and every living thing on the island to change. The trees grow faster than they should, and the Read more

This is insane. 4 is ranked lower than 5, 6, h2o and resurrection? I would put 4 just below 1.

That’s what I was going to say. Obviously these women are trying to collect child support from Optimus Prime!

I was listening to Bill Bryson’s history of private life, and at one point he talks about the first ever gardening guide for women. It had instructions about which end of the shovel to put in the ground, so maybe gardening troubles were a real issue back then.

I’m almost done with The Sin Eater, by Megan Campisi. In an alternate Elizabethan England the folk practice of sin eating has been codified, with professional sin eaters and specific foods for each sin. The women themselves occupy a strange place, they’re important religious figures and necessary to get into heaven, Read more

In college we rented a house next door to a machine shop, at least none of us were ever late to morning classes. I get it with the early morning noise.

I’ve found that construction guys are the cattiest gossips. The medical center I work for always has some construction project going on, and those guys endlessly talk shit about each other. The plumbers hate the carpenters, and all of them hate the steam fitters, and did everyone hear what Steve said about Joey?

I have one and I will force it to keep working until they pry it from my cold dead hands. I hate touch screens, I need there to be a wheel and a physical hold switch.

If they did that I would also want them to have a fully voiced player character. I just can’t feel anything for the protagonist when every NPC has a voice, but they’re just a lump of nothing.

This was the plot of Big Finish story with the 10th Doctor and Donna, and when I was listening to it I was surprised no one had done the concept for real before.

I just finished Bill Bryson’s At Home, a history of private life, so no SFF books this week. It is very entertaining and full of a lot of interesting information. Read more

I’m tired. One of the cats decided to start full on howling for food early this morning. I tried to ignore it, but she’s mostly Siamese so it gets pretty loud. So I get up and set out the plates, and the little shit takes about two bites and then walks off to sleep in the window. Fucking cat.

I would 100% read the series about comics insurance.

I finally got the Mirena IUD swapped out and the process was extra unpleasant this time. It took three tries to get one to deploy correctly so there was a lot of jamming things around in there. Why is it that they can’t give you Novocaine for it, numb the cervix up at least?

A bit, the kids are all aware of the crazy stuff happening and mainly try to stay out of its way, trusting that the chosen one kids will sort it out.

I did a lot of reorganizing around the apartment over the weekend, so I managed to get through the entire audio book of “The Rest of us Just Live Here”. Its a look at the lives of the kids who exist on the periphery of Buffy or a supernatural CW show. They still have to go to class, deal with strained family lives and Read more

Phase 2 of Operation Organize is now complete. Phase 1 was the tv area, and 2 was the kitchen. The kitchen looks nice, and its amazing how satisfying it is.

I also just can’t imagine how it would be constitutional to say that an independent adult is barred from certain professions because a relative ran for office.

I’ve seen people arguing that relatives of elected officials shouldn’t be allowed to have X, Y and Z jobs, usually something like lawyers or corporate management. How do they think that would work? All relatives of elected officials need to be fired once someone gets elected? What if they had the job prior to that? Read more
