I did an art.

In the promise of becoming more active on social media, I am failing spectacularly. However, since I relocated, I am at least trying to keep myself busy. Comic-Con International, the big one, the mothership, San Diego herself, is around the corner and I’m displaying in the art show (NOT artist alley.) Therefore, I’ve had to […]

And the Mountain Never Got Closer

I just drove from New Hampshire to Southern California. Here is a short story that kinda sucks, but whatever. This is a cautionary tale about what lies beyond Tucson.   The desert itself is an interesting place, and we knew it wouldn’t disappoint. “We”, being myself, and my copilot on the cross-country roadtrip, Magister Normannorum. […]

Non-Stop Disco

So, while I was at U-Con, San Diego Comic-Con International badges went on sale. …. And I got one. Well, two. I got a 4 day badge for myself, and Saturday and Sunday for my husband, because his work schedule will make it difficult to go the other days. But yes. I have just done […]

U-Con @ UConn!

YES! Somehow the University of Connecticut is allowing my University of New Hampshire student and University of Rhode Island alum butt on campus for a convention! February 20-21st in the UConn Student Union! Come see me! Buy my things! Have a chat! Bring me lunch! Seriously, it’ll be grand!

I did not spend the last 5 years of my life going back to school to be a medievalist to like modern art.

I hate it. Don’t tell me I don’t “get” it, because you don’t fucking “get” it either. A rectangle painted on canvas is not art. It’s the skillful movement of oil paint in the right directions to make a shape. It should not sell for millions. Imagine you’re Michelangelo on completion of the Sistine Chapel, […]

A Creative Writing Exercise

I just picked up Wil Wheaton’s thrown gauntlet. See his original post here: http://wilwheaton.net/2016/01/whats-this-guys-story/ Here’s the guy: I have only 150 words. And GO:   Martin put in the glasses and looked in the mirror. “No.” He resigned, and shook his head, “I think the point of being a private investigator is looking far more inconspicuous. […]

Lawfully Nerded Bliss

So I’ve been on my second marriage now for almost two years. Unlike the first mistake, this one seems to be going strong, and I’m not at all worried about where things are going to take us next. Except this one time he didn’t listen to me. Now, I want to make something perfectly clear: […]
