Happy Halloween!

The big day has finally arrived, and as usual, I wish I could turn back the clock so it could be October 1st again.  I love Halloween of course, but now that it’s here, I know it’ll be over all too soon. I spent last night watching the Halloween specials that have become part of […]

First, of course, see my previous post to enter the Coffin Hop contest, in which you can win a huge Halloween Mystery Bag filled with much goodness. Today one of my students took a photo of me using an “app” that turns you into a zombie.  Needless to say I had to show off my […]

Dudes, Dudettes, and Gentle Inbetweenies, Today I call on you for the good of the kingdom.  For there is an evil that must be slain, and you, my band of psychos, are the only ones who can do it. Okay, fine.  It’s not really all that evil.  And nothing has to be slain. I wrote […]

What’s Halloween Without Fright Rags?

I’ve never been a fan of clothes shopping.  I hate it, in fact.  Clothes serve a utilitarian purpose, and as far as I’m concerned, that’s all.  That means two things.  One, I usually look like a bum.  And two, I never spend extravagant sums of money of fashionable clothing. Well, almost never.  My one vice […]

A couple days ago I saw the mock up for my novel’s cover.  It is looking really great so far.  I can’t say much about it, but it has exceeded my expectations.  Hopefully pretty soon I’ll see a finished version, and not too long after I’ll be able to do the big reveal.  Things are […]

It’s sort of like the Monster Mash, only when it’s over, prizes are given away, new friends are made, and more than one limb will be devoured.  By me. I was on my near-daily trek of Google Reader when I stumbled over to Milo James Fowler’s site, where (to my surprise and delight) I found […]
