Sometimes I get the feeling deep down in the hard, crystally, freezer-burnt depths of my stinky soul that I’m not being as prolific a blogger as I’d like to be these days. Because the fact of the matter is… HEY! WAIT! Come back! Look, I know you’re about a millisecond away from closing this browser … Continue reading Puddin’s Got A Brand New Gig
As it turns out, I did not actually fall off the face of the Earth this past week. Or even into a vat of cookie dough large enough to house all of Wonka’s Oompa Loompas plus a goodly portion of his walnut-testing squirrels, despite the fact that I’ve done nothing but think of making cookies … Continue reading One Geek, Two Geek, That Was A Good Week(end)
If the title of the post sounds vaguely familiar, it means either you’ve been to the very depths of the archives here’s and remember This post, or your a fan of Monty Python’s Flying Circus. I’m pretty sure we can be friends either way. For the Official Permanent Record, though, the reason for the reference … Continue reading …And Now For Something Largely The Same
Yesterday I was buzzing like a bee, all a-rarin’ to go, and chomping at the bit, even, consumed with magnificent intention to write The Annual Birthday post. I’m sure it would have been full of faux wisdom and charm, and reminders that one’s birthday makes them no more than 24 hours older than the day … Continue reading Foregoing The Usual Birthday Post (Brownie Now!)
Well, now. Since the Earth didn’t miraculously come to a screeching halt in the vastness of space in the past two days, looks like that whole “New Year’s” fad all the kids were so hip on didn’t get canceled after all. Which, you know, is a good thing, really. If for no other reason than … Continue reading New Year’s Resolution
Since the beginning of the month—well, more precisely since I wrote this post—I’ve been plague by the question titling this post. Should I or should I not fling myself out of the proverbial perfectly good airplane without a parachute on Friday with all my other lemming friends? That is, should I take off my helmet … Continue reading To NaNo, or not to NaNo?
Sometime between 10:30 and 11 PM Monday night, I made the entire world stop around me—kind of like Hiro could do on that show Heroes?—so I could fix a problem with the poem I posted in honor of the Royal Mouth-To-Feed’s much-tweeted about entry into the realm of humans. Seriously, someone was actually talking to … Continue reading It turns out I’m not perfect. Neither are you. And that’s okay.
Truth be told, I should have read Dragonflight a long, long time ago. Originally published in 1968, this book has been around since, well, as long as I’ve been alive. Longer, even. It’s one of those books, the ones that anyone purporting to have any semblance of “geek cred” is assumed to have read—and cherished … Continue reading Look, I read a book: Dragonflight by Anne McCaffrey
It’s been a bit since I’ve done a Movie in 100 Words or Less. It seems like over holidays I was pumping ’em out like every week or so, which is nearly as fast those crazy Duggar people pump out young-un’s with j-names. But then I got all wrapped up in some books or whatever, … Continue reading A movie in 100 words or less: Ted
At long last, I finally finished George R. R. Martin‘s latest book, “A Dance with Dragons” a week ago in one of those sort-of-regrettable-but-fun reading binges that ends at 3 AM on a Thursday night. Truth be told, I’m kind of embarrassed that it took me as long as it did, both to finally get … Continue reading Epic Fatigue: Has modern Epic Fantasy become just too…epic?
