Author, librarian, introvert. A grand lover…of coffee. My patronus is Grumpy Cat and my house is Slytherin, but I’m classified as squib because there is no magic in my heart. Cursed to live during interesting times.

Procrastinator in Chief

The better soul of the house, and probably the smartest too. Definitely the cutest. She’s what gets me out of bed in the mornings and makes my life far more joyous every day than I deserve.  ♥

Stranger Things, stranger theories

[major spoilers for the TV show Stranger Things below. don't say I didn't warn you!] So okay, here's my response to a lot of fan theories circulating. I have to admit I'm disappointed with the meta about this show -- maybe I'm used to higher standards? But everyone is...

Keely Update – Six Months Later edition

The first photo accompanying this blog post is the first I ever saw of Keely, which was on her bio at the Big Dog Rescue website back in August, 2016. My plan had been to spend a few weeks perusing available dog listings before deciding to meet a few and then pick the...

Recommendation Triptych: America in the 1920s

This time I’ve got three books that I recommend reading in a specific order, from broad-spectrum overview to a discrete, specific event that happened in the summer of 1927. I think reading these books in that order, one after another, gives a very nuanced perspective...

Updatery part elevenhundy

If you've been keeping up with my blog at all (I mean, who hasn't, amirite?!?!?) then you've been keeping up with my "blog a day for a year" posts, right up until there were no more blogs-a-day. I stopped before I hit the 200 mark, so yeah, far from making the goal of...

{198} Some days are just lonely

I don't spend much time feeling sorry for myself, but tonight is one of those nights. Maybe it was work being a rolling clusterfuck of IT issues all day. Maybe it was my bus running late and thus making me miss my connection so I ended up waiting around in the cold at...

{197} The Website that Broke Me

The Self-Authoring Suite at http://www.selfauthoring.com/ I figured to just put it there in the subheading to get past the suspense. I want to make clear, though, that the "breaking" I'm talking about was actually a form of progress for me. In mid 2015, suffering from...

{196} The soul of Star Wars is not a single note

Fans of Rogue One say that it has brought Star Wars back to the feel of the original trilogy, that it has saved the soul of the franchise. Fans of The Force Awakens say that it has brought Star Wars back to the feel of the original trilogy, that it has saved the soul...

{195} The Power of NO

As I get older, I think one of the most subversive acts of resistance a woman of any age can do is say "NO." It's personal and political. I long ago said "no" to becoming a mother, and am judged by many the lesser for it; women saying "no" at work to being paid less...

{194} Why do I resist schedules?

I don't have an answer to that question. Putting myself on a schedule to do anything is something I actively, aggressively resist. I would rarely show up for work on time if doing so didn't risk getting fired and, therefore, becoming homeless. Which is to say, it's...

{193} I’m too old to live fast and die young

I could, theoretically, push myself very very hard in the direction of my goals -- lose sleep, live off coffee, eat irregularly, rarely see the outdoors. But...why? In our culture, doing "MORE BETTER FASTER" is seen as the highest goal. I have friends who talk about...

{192} Hittin’ the (metaphorical) road!

Now that the "advent" series is over and the new year is in full effect, I'm moving on to putting plans in motion. I'm not big on making resolutions as I feel those have been, at least for me, a fast track to frustration when I fail to meet them. But my "plans" could...
