Doctor Who Nativity: for posterity

Monday, December 22nd, 2014

So, Mary Robinette Kowal dared Michael on Twitter to do a Doctor Who nativity with our action figures.   CHALLENGE ACCEPTED:   Someone else asked where the Daleks and Cybermen were. This was the response: You’re welcome. (Yes, the Season 18 scarf was the one I knitted while working on Chicks Dig Time Lords.) Happy […]

Thoughts on Deep Breath

Sunday, August 31st, 2014

I just watched “Into the Dalek” last night, and will share my thoughts on that on the next Verity!. I have some first impressions, and some nitpicks about “Deep Breath.” In general, I really liked most of the episode. It was a pretty good introduction of a new Doctor, although I still think “The Eleventh […]

2013: A year in review

Friday, January 3rd, 2014

2013 was an interesting year, full of beginnings and endings. Michael and I were discussing it (as you do), and I felt like I hadn’t accomplished anything this year. So we started listing the things that we did this year, because they should count! 1. I got tenure. This is a BIG BIG DEAL, as it […]

Librarianing makes a post :-)

Wednesday, December 4th, 2013

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 […]

Why I Don’t Write Fiction (right now)

Wednesday, November 13th, 2013

“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 […]

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 […]
