Oh hi!

I wrote a dark but sweet fantasy novel of libraries and necromancy.

It would be amazing if you shared this post around.

It's too early and I didn't get enough sleep, but at least I have fancy cannoli whipped cream to put in my coffee.

I am back home. Doctor thinks my achy/numb toe is due to RSI in my foot, which is weird and strange to me.

Next step: find a podiatrist.

Currently in the waiting room at the doctor's office. Everyone is masked but I am still quite anxious about how close together people are. Social distancing still matters!

We are heading upstate on a ski trip tomorrow, so today is laundry and packing and making bagels for snacks on the trip and where did my son leave his snow pants and.... Ugh, only 5pm and already so tired.

And the bagels still need to proof for four hours!

It's sourdough pretzel time! Or it will be in an hour when they've finished rising, anyway.

Bad news everyone. I'm sorry to announce this, but.... coffee is broken. It's just not doing the job anymore.

"average writer publishes 3 books a year" factoid actualy just statistical error. average author publishes 0 books per year. Brandon Sanderson, who lives in cave & writes over 10,000 each day, is an outlier adn should not have been counted

Okay, this blizzard in Brooklyn is pretty serious. I'm considering cancelling my commute and working from upstairs instead of the basement. :)

Seriously, though, anybody in the US northeast, take care and be safe.

I am finally awake. I was up til 3am editing music last night, and my brain still feels kind of waterlogged. I guess this is how I know I'm not a kid anymore, huh?

Ugh, polar vortex time again. It's below freezing here, and worse, according to the weather report it's only going to be colder between now and Sunday.

I am going to spend four days on the couch wrapped in blankets, aren't I?

Yesterday was Oldest Son's birthday. Today is Younger Son's birthday.

Go many board games. So much cake.

What a great weekend!

Bad food 

I think maybe my boba packets aren't good anymore. I kind of want to open them but I can also imagine the smell and don't want to know if I'm right.

Uspol, schools 

Argh my kid is arguing with his teacher about the riots at the Capitol.

Yes, kid, I'm glad you've listened to and absorbed my politics, and I'm sorry that your teacher is a magat, but I think we need to work more on power differentials and survival skills.

So this morning I took my work laptop, went down to my office, started it up, and got ready for my first day back at work for a week and a half. I even had a joke ready to deploy about not wanting to work.

Then I checked my calendar and saw that today is still a holiday and I don't have to work until tomorrow. I am feeling kind of deflated now.

IT'S FREE SEEDS TIME AGAIN if you're in the UK, boost please! 

this year i have no allotment and less garden space and hence less need for seeds. i will post excess ones to you if you're in the uk

as a disclaimer, many of the packets have been open a while and/or have passed their use-by date by a few months, but they're free so who cares right

seeds marked * are ones i've harvested myself, of whose viability i make no guarantee

i'll list available seeds below, reply if you're interested!

Sometimes, everyone else is busy on a Sunday afternoon, and you realize, "I want some pie."

Luckily, I have the means to make this happen. Pie will be out of the oven in about an hour.

Since apparently nine months won't do it, when will I stop leaving my house and getting halfway to the store before I realize I don't have a mask on?
