Time for round 2- today’s topic!  Today is all about tired, saggy old tropes that need to be retired.

Childhood abuse/sex abuse as a stand […]

Like a Great White Snark on Snark Week

So the lovely Rachel at Parajunkee knew I was coming, apparently, and baked a cake, because it’s Snark Week!  It’s time to cut loose and get snarky, with a different post each day on a different topic.  The snark usually flows pretty freely around here, because that’s how I roll, but now it’s like a […]

Thinking About…The Professional by Kresley Cole

I’ve been going back and forth about what I want to write about this series since I finished installment three last Monday.  I hadn’t even planned on reading this when it first came out back in December but ended up giving it a shot when a significant chunk of it was free from the author […]

Hello friends!

First of all, Happy Thanksgiving to those who partake, and to those who don’t, welcome back!

Doing stuff and making things and generally being out and about means that I haven’t been checking in […]
