I interrupt your previously schedule rant (about Kat’s question), because I have been tagged by Toddler Planet to reveal five strange things you may not know about me.  Since I have a mixed SCA and Mommy audience, your definition of strange may vary.  But here it is: 1.  All you SCA people know this, but I […]

One of my very favorite bloggers, Sarah, asks a big question: As far as I can tell, we all have those moments that we re-play in our heads and think “If I had chosen that other door, things would be so much different right now.” What’s your big “door”? How do you think things would have […]

Jodifur asks me how I met my husband.  Well, we fought.  We first met briefly about two years before my first marriage deteriorated.  It was at a science fiction convention (ShadowCon, for those of my friends who know the Con circuit).  This is a fairly odd thing, because I really don’t “do” SciFi cons.  While […]

Okay, so I am taking these in approximately first-come first-served order. Veronica of Toddled Dredge asks about my earliest childhood memory. I have a couple that seem to compete for prominence when I try to look back in time.  Most are just snatches of pictures, but I think my very earliest, if I try to estimate […]

I told a little white lie.  I said I would come back today and get right to the Q&A session.  But, during the course of my little intimate date with my gastroenterologist (who didn’t even offer me a cigarette afterward), I encountered another shining example of how the irony of life can stand up and […]

Thanks for all the questions.  I’m leaving now.  But only until Wednesday.  Then I will turn on the bright light in the dark room, bring out the rubber hose and flog all the honest answers out.   For the next two days I will be undergoing something far more unpleasant.  Because of a family medical history […]

I think it’s time for another one of these. It isn’t that I don’t have stuff to write about. It’s just that lately I have been reading my own blog and snoring.  Yeah, yeah, I could look at my son all day, but, as one who was amongst the ranks of the childless well into […]

It’s time again for the GAMBLE Book Club to resume its new schedule.  Apparently, we are not the only book club list that February’s pick is on. Are y’all ready to strap in again?  I hope so, because here it comes:   From the Publisher Christopher John Francis Boone knows all the countries of the […]
