It's the day of the PRIDE Parade in Philadelphia, so what better time for me to wish all celebrants an amazing Pride Day and month! It's also the 50 year anniversary of the Stonewall Riots, the "genesis" of Pride celebrations via the commencement of the movement for LGBTQ rights, when a police raid against an … Continue reading Happy Pride!
Terribly sorry that I missed a week, and that this post won't be satisfactory either. They really shouldn't put holidays on weekends, and uh...vacations, I guess. I mean who does that? So, bear with me, actual real content to return soon. For your amusement here is a list of things I've done recently: -Recreated dinosaurs … Continue reading Dark & Stormy: Lounging in a Time of Cloud Cover
It's gorgeous outside for the first time in weeks, so this will not be a long post. As far as book three goes, it's inching along. I want to make sure I'm completely satisfied with the story I'm telling, and apparently I've gotten more persnickety, because it's taking forever. Yes. I know. I've had words … Continue reading Screw Beach Ready, I Want Sleep Ready
This post contains spoilers for The Last Jedi and Avengers: Endgame. Please read on at your own risk. No, seriously, not only do I talk about things that happened in these movies, I also will be sharing thoughts that might either make you see things slightly differently and then you'll be sad like me, or you'll think … Continue reading The Real Villain Is Patriarchy
We came back late last night from attending to things for the funeral. It was a lovely service, with full military honors, a 21 gun salute, and a beautiful memorial service featuring his favorite scripture, so many testimonials of how PumPum touched the lives of his community, and great readings. But now I'm exhausted. Please … Continue reading I Have A Rant, But I Took A Nap Instead
My grandfathers had both passed before I was born, and my grandmothers lived 3000 miles away. I never had the experience of other children who had Sunday dinner with their meme and pepe, or spent weekends with them or anything like that. I love my grandmothers and enjoyed the time we spent together, but it … Continue reading All Stories End
I hope everyone is having a happy holiday weekend! I have eaten a chocolate bunny, participated in an Easter egg hunt, had french toast, and gotten a temporary tattoo (of a unicorn!) so I feel that I have celebrated well. Today I'm sleeping off the sugar coma, editing, and enjoying the nice seasonable breeze in … Continue reading Ate Too Much for Any Springing
I hate bathing suit shopping. There are some things that for the most part designers and consumers seem to agree upon--we get a plethora of shirt options and dresses, undies and bras. But jeans and bathing suits for whatever reason always make me wonder how they do their market research? Do they visit an Oracle? … Continue reading Bathing Suited For What?
Here in the US, spring has arrived! The trees are mating! Bugs are being born! Flowers are blooming! My wardrobe is very confused about the number of appropriate layers! All of that aside, it's also the start of the marathon of weddings, baby showers and other fetes. I love weddings and celebrating new humans and … Continue reading Please Just Tell Me What To Get You
I want you to imagine you're on a sidewalk. Are you: a. On auto-pilot, listening to your ear buds, more or less staying with the crowd b. noticing things around you like what someone is wearing or the dog out for a walk c. assessing everything around you for potential threats I think most of … Continue reading Doggos, Sherlock, and the OODA Loop
