Morning, world! This is going to be an interesting week. For one, I finally get back on my desktop. I prefer it for writing over my laptop, though both are preferable to longhand. Not trying to knock anyone who does it that way, but I don't understand why write it out by hand only to … Continue reading Keyboards, mice, and keeping my hands working
Morning, everyone. Happy Thanksgiving to those in the U.S. Please, celebrate small this year. COVID has already done enough damage, caused an absurd amount of grief. Forego the big celebration for one year so that you can continue to have those friends and family in your life for decades to come. I haven't posted for … Continue reading Waking up from a nightmare
Hey. I saw a post on social media today that really got me thinking. In the post, it was revealed that a writer had been called names I won't repeat because they included a character who was pansexual. Let me get something straight with each of you reading this. No one needs your approval to … Continue reading Approval vs. Acceptance
Nessa winced, trying hard not to grab her head from the pain. Somehow, Manak and Tiko managed to take the Banshee down. Which was good, as she had work to do. Serena was laying face down on the cave floor. Christos and his pseudo-dragon were unconscious as well. The creature’s wail had mowed them … Continue reading The Murder Hobos – Shore Leave – Episode 7 – A Scream in the Night
Good morning! It's going to be an interesting day today. There's no gaming, and we thought we'd have a weekend where it was just the two of us around the house. Then, our son decided to surprise us and come home from college last night...right before his sister went back to her school. We're still … Continue reading Time to create some magic
We now know what 2020 had in mind for September. Most of the West Coast of the US, including near where I live, is on fire. Please don't try to debate me on climate change. This is a direct result of ignoring science and those who warned us. No amount of 'raking the forest floor' … Continue reading A new layer of constant dread
So, I'm heading out the door in about 45 minutes to go to work. The 2nd load of laundry's in the dryer, dishwasher is running, and I made my hubby's lunch for tomorrow. I've made sure there's food for them to make in the freezer, the bed is made, and I even dusted the walls … Continue reading It’s a trap! And I made it!
Hey. It's September 1, 2020. Fall isn't quite here yet, and the year has a lot more time left to mess with us. I'm resisting saying it can't get worse because, well, it can. I don't want to tempt it. One thing I've always loved about Autumn is the falling leaves. As I sit at … Continue reading The roots of my fantasy worlds.
Well, my hands are officially out of the braces. The CTS should be resolved. Or, if not completely gone, where I can resume all normal activities and only wear the braces at night if I see symptoms. The trigger finger on my right hand is much better now. Doctor gave me a steroid shot to … Continue reading Starting slow, and being patient
Hey. I'm not working today, but Muse decided I was done sleeping. Such is life when you're owned by a tortoiseshell cat. LOL Two years ago today, I explored Black Isle. It's not a real island, more of a peninsula surrounded on three sides by water. It's to the north of Inverness, and has some … Continue reading Black Isle, Clootie Wells, and Healing
