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 […]

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 […]

SQUEE!

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]
