From demonic circuses to water elemental murder mysteries, alien exchange students to World War I-era necromancy, my urban fantasy book reviews from January to June.
Instead of criticizing the Sochi Winter Olympics, people of the internet should compete in online events to prove their superiority.
@midnight comedians Chris Hardwick, Paul F. Tompkins, Jen Kirkman, and Mike Lawrence entertained me for an hour last Wednesday, at no cost to me.
The new year is almost upon us, and I’ve neglected this blog for far too long. When I last left off, I was an old woman with shingles – I’m still an old woman, but fortunately the shingles has passed. Since then I went to a Time Lord Ball dressed as a lizard woman from the dawn of time, held a Whovian birthday party, and sold geeky ornaments at a craft faire. All topics I meant to blog about in depth, all stuck solidly in the past.
Instead of songs about bad relationships or drug use, they write geek music about Pokemon and Star Trek.
Our constant attempts to live in the past provoke laughter in older generations, given that we’re all under the age of 35.
I’ve loved designing t-shirts ever since the early days of Cafe Press, and have owned many shirts over the years designed by fellow fans. It’s an ongoing quest nowadays to find the right print-on-demand website that will do everything I want since screenprinting is not financially viable. I’m currently settled at Spreadshirt, which gives me the most options, but is far from perfect.
Considering how big a fan I am of the original source material (as well as the A&E mini, the Keira Knightly film, and the zombified version), I’m surprised it took me as long as it did to sit down to watch the Lizzie Bennet Diaries, “an online adaptation of Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudice.” Maybe it’s because I’m such a big fan; I wasn’t sure I needed to see yet another version of the story.
I’ve never seen an episode of Oprah in my life, but I understand that periodically she would share whatever tickled her fancy with her audience, and today’s my birthday, so I thought it would be a good time to share the things that have tickled mine. (Metaphorically.) I suppose with Thanksgiving coming up I could also title this post ‘Things I’m Grateful For’ but that enters the dodgy world of ending sentences with prepositions. Mostly, I want to share some neat or useful things I’ve found, and I love any excuse to use bullet points.
