I went to the ANADPII conference in Barcelona late last month, followed immediately by Chicago TARDIS, hence my radio silence over here. Jet lag is definitely a thing. So was food poisoning, which I acquired on the flight home from Barcelona. UGH. I’m better now, thanks. Anyway, I’m beginning to do my writeup of my […]
“So, when are you going to write your novel/short story?” I get this question more often than you might think, especially lately. I’m an editor. The assumption is that I really must love fiction, short and long, to be doing this editing thing. (Trust me, it’s not particularly lucrative.) I’m indeed taking a break from […]

There have been some campus conversations about the new social media policy. During our faculty meeting this morning, it was explained that the monthly reporting is somehow […]

1. There is a new episode of Verity! Available, in which we discuss “Journey to the Center of the TARDIS“ I may have neglected to mention that Verity! has also reviewed every other episode in season 7B, and you should go check out the other episodes to hear our respective reviews. 2. I spent about 2 […]
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 […]
