Game Playing Reveals Inner Monologue is an Abusive Psychopath

On my phone I have a game that I’m sure a great deal of you are familiar with: Bejeweled — a game where you match up jewels and blow things up and earn points. It’s a great way to pass the time waiting in… Continue Reading “Game Playing Reveals Inner Monologue is an Abusive Psychopath”

Taking Leaps

Read a bit of Neil Gaiman and you’ll quickly realize that he has flexible ideas of reality. Yeah, I know his stock in trade is fantasy. I’m not talking about that. No, what I’m talking about is Gaiman’s willingness to take leaps, and his… Continue Reading “Taking Leaps”

Cleaning the Closet: A Tuesday Post of Accountability and My One New Year’s Resolution

It’s Tuesday and time to share what we’ve all been up to! I know I missed last week, but the blog page was starting to look like nothing but accountability posts and that gets boring after a while. and I didn’t do anything worth… Continue Reading “Cleaning the Closet: A Tuesday Post of Accountability and My One New Year’s Resolution”

Comments from the Peanut Gallery

And let me tell you: Deb, Fleur, and John kicked… Continue Reading “Comments from the Peanut Gallery”

Failure Sound-Off

Everyone else did it. (See Ali, Deb, and John at right…) Right now I’m looking for a job. Already I’ve done two interviews and two second interviews–so now it’s a foot race for who can offer me better stuff. And that sounds good, right?… Continue Reading “Failure Sound-Off”
