Happy Wednesday Bloglandia! So back in the Long Long Ago Times (aka "pre-pandemic") I used to take these things called "vacations." You may have heard of them. To prepare for these vacations, I would go through several mad rituals such as planning outfits (only to wear the same two things the entire trip), organizing toiletries … Continue reading Going Medieval on Book Thieves
Hello Bloglandia! First up, let me just say I am in no way making light of the situation in the Southeast US where loads of people are having a terrible time with Hurricane Ida. Anyone going through that loss, putting up with the aftermath, and having to deal with insurance and clean up is a … Continue reading A Stormy Month & A New Toy for Book Nerds

Hello Bloglandia! If you happen to pay any attention to the news (depressing, I know) or to my Instagram account (which no one does), you'll know the Pacific Northwest has angered the sun gods this summer. Apparently we forgot to sacrifice a salmon or a microbrew or whatever it takes to appease King Sol. Temperatures … Continue reading If You Can’t Stand the Heat…Get Out the Humor?

But the free stuff I'm talking about isn't exactly treasure. Well, not always. Let me explain... So I walk and run a lot to … Continue reading Another Man’s Junk…
Once again, I found myself tumbling into a curious reading theme in July. This time many of the books I picked up had troublesome buildings playing a key role in the story. From the possessed printing office of The Stranger Times to the dark demons haunting Gil's All-Fright Diner to the tragic event outside The Dakota in The Final Days … Continue reading July’s Reading Round-up: Location, Location, Location
Hello Bloglandia! Bit of an odd (in a weird way) title there, but it was also an odd (in a funny way) phone call when that line was spoken. A little background about parental support regarding my creative endeavors first. My mom has always been super supportive of my writing without being shy to say, … Continue reading “Did You Get the Email!?”
Hello Humor-Seeking Humans! It book review time, and I know I'm a bit early for my monthly reading round up (the official one is coming next week), but I'm also a bit late with this review as I read the book way back in early May. Yes, it's a bit of time paradox! Anyway, A … Continue reading Cat Chess Anyone? A Melee of Mages (Book Review)
Hello Bloglandia! Egad! I blinked and May disappeared. Anyone else experience this blinky-time warp phenomenon? I guess that means I need to make the most of June...or just never blink again. I better put in an order for a case of eye drops. Anyway...if you're not in the mood for reading today, you'll get a … Continue reading Take That, Neil! (May’s Writing Round-up)
