  1. And that's the end of the testing. Now the 8-10 week wait. I feel like I probably passed but who really knows. Now I can write again, lol.

  3. I just chased my son with the app controlled BB-8 toy. He legitimately thinks it's alive. Lol.

  4. I just created a new head canon. This also contains some mild spoilers for Stranger Things. The Upsidedown from Stranger Things is a piece of the Nevernever from the Dresden Files and the monsters are fae of the Winter Court.

    I'm ready to blow my head off.

    I can't remember the title of a fairy tale. I remember it clearly but I can't remember the name. I've looked through my books, nothing. It's the tale about the girl, I believe she was a princess, and she had a doll. Due to some deal her father made with a witch, when the girl was old enough she was sent into the woods and lived alone in a cottage. She spent her free time sewing. When she ran out of string in the cottage she reluctantly used the thread from her doll. As she used the doll thread she slowly opened herself to resources (more food, water and such) and when she'd used the last of the thread a path opened int he forest allowing her return home.

    Does this sound familiar to anyone?

    Doesn't ring a bell to me, alas, but it does sound fascinating. ^^

    Addison, that sounds like a version of Vasilia The Beautiful, except for without Baba Yaga.

    Aaagh, you guys, Finding Dory is SO GOOD. No spoilers, but it did a fantastic job of portraying someone (more than one character, actually!) as disabled without making them helpless. It hit all the right notes for a great Pixar film -- I laughed, I awww'd and I cried. Will definitely be looking for this one when it's out on DVD.
     
  10. Onions I love to eat you, but unless I have my contacts in y'all are the biggest bunch of a-holes. Stop making me cry.

    My daughter is having her baby in a little over a week. Decided to do my first major, thorough house cleaning in ages. Spent the past couple days bagging trash and putting clothes in totes. Big pile of these in the garage. House is still a mess. Doesn't look like I did anything. Depressing.

    Yes. And according to the daughter, he will also be my last grandbaby. Quite a change from her view when she first moved in with me as a teenager (long story), straight out of one of the more repressive religious home schooling programs - back then her goal was to get married, become a housewife, and have ten baby's. Now, apparently, one is plenty.

    In the meantime, though, that still leaves me with a giant pile of trash to haul to the dump.
     
  14. I'm up late eating an orange Creamsicle while everyone else is asleep. :p

    For some reason I always find it difficult to write longer stories, but when it comes to every other form of writing it's almost impossible for me to be concise. I have to WORK to make book reviews shorter than 2k! Yet nearly all my writing is done in <10k, usually <5k too! You'd think I'd have more material & thoughts on something entirely of my own creation than on someone else's, but no ...

    So what happens if you write a review about your own story? This must be tested. For science.
