5 Things Make a Post on a Wednesday

Wednesday, November 13th, 2013

1. Christopher de Hamel is coming to campus today! He’ll be in Special Collections later this afternoon before his talk at 5 pm. I’m still rather excited. 2. Spain prep continues apace. This conference is going to be amazing. 3. Just ordered this Karen Hanmer piece for our collections. Teach all the binding methods! I’m […]

5 Things make a post

Wednesday, July 24th, 2013

So, 5 things. 1. I seem to be going through a post-tenure burnout/depression period.  Yes, it’s a thing. A thing that I am currently experiencing. My particular manifestation is keeping me from taking as much pleasure in successes as I would like, or not trusting them, and not really knowing what happens next.  The tenure […]

Post-tenure Updates!

Tuesday, July 16th, 2013

So, I’ve been tenured for a couple of weeks now. Here’s what I’ve been up to: 1. We bought a new car! It’s a 2013 Mazda 5. Our 1999 Saturn has been on its last legs for quite some time, up to and including making a bit of a death rattle on the way to […]

WisCon Approacheth!

Wednesday, May 22nd, 2013

And our entire family will be in attendance. This WisCon is also the official launch for Queers Dig Time Lords! Thus, I have a very light schedule in deference to Michael’s book launch. It really is a splendid book. I got to read the manuscript. (And you should totally come to the QDTL/Outer Alliance party […]

Hugo Nominations! No fooling.

Monday, April 1st, 2013

While I’m posting this on April 1, I promise, this is not a joke. The announcement of the Hugo Award Nominations went out on Saturday. I’m nominated in three categories. THREE. O_O Apex Magazine is  nominated for Best Semiprozine. SF Squeecast is nominated for Best Fancast. Chicks Dig Comics is nominated for Best Related Work. […]

So that happened…

Tuesday, December 11th, 2012

As you know (Bob), I was interviewed for TV Guide this week, as part of the fan favorites cover story where Doctor Who pretty much blew the competition out of the water. When the interview was arranged, I was SWORN TO SECRECY, and I couldn’t talk about it at all. Especially since I couldn’t be […]

Caitlin’s 10th Birthday

Sunday, October 28th, 2012

Dear Caitlin, Today is your 10th birthday. Hooray! You are in double digits. We are so very proud of you, and glad that you are happy and enjoying life. We weren’t sure you would ever be with us this long. The doctors weren’t sure, either. The syndrome that you were born with is pretty rough. […]

Cabin in the Woods vs. Game of Thrones

Friday, October 19th, 2012

Random media-related thought for the day: In a general sense, I’m kind of a visual wuss. My taste in horror leans towards spooky rather than slasher. I am enjoying the Game of Thrones series  immensely (we’re in season 2 right now). It is EXCEEDINGLY violent, and often follows very squicky characters. And yet. I’m totally […]

A Day of Thanksgiving

Monday, October 8th, 2012

I am told it’s Canadian Thanksgiving today. While I’m not from Canada, I’m having my own little giving of thanks anyhow, so it feels apropos. Today is my 38th birthday. While 38 isn’t a round-number milestone for my age, it marks the 10th anniversary of my mother’s funeral. I still miss her very, very much. […]
