We're on the third or fourth nor'easter of the month of March and it's only the 21st as I'm writing this. I'm woefully behind on posting. So behind that I've finished two pairs of socks since my last update. Two! I finished the Joyful Socks first. I made them a bit longer than I normally … Continue reading Snow and Socks
Guys, we made a thing! So my awesome friends started a book club and podcast called WESTERN CANNONBALL wherein we are reading western classics, talking about them over dinner, and podcasting the whole thing. We'll be doing it about once a month. The first podcast is already up on multiple sites (thanks to Lance). The … Continue reading Western Cannonball – Gilgamesh and Skinnydipping

As I spent most of January reading the works of Lisa Shearin I wanted to give a little more space and thought to reviewing these books than my normal "what I've been reading" posts. Then I realized that this post was getting too long itself and split it into three separate posts. So expect more … Continue reading Don’t Get Stabbed By A Love Triangle – Raine Benares Series
Apologies for not posting for two weeks. The Children's Museum of Manhattan where I work announced the purchase of a new building and also had one of our largest events of the year all within a span of a few weeks and I got a crazy ringside seat for all of it. I got to … Continue reading What I’ve Been Reading – January 2018
Back at the start of 2015, annoyed with the fact that I couldn't track rereads on Goodreads, I started keeping a spreadsheet on Google Docs of the books I was reading. I did it partly out of curiosity, exactly how many books was I reading in a year? I hadn't known since middle school, when … Continue reading What I’ve Been Reading – 2017 Books Read Spreadsheet

Ok, so this post is late. In fact it's over a week late. In my defense, the Children's Museum just announced that it bought a building and will be moving in a few years, which means work has been cray-z. But that's no excuse for not getting writing done. My resolution for 2018 is to … Continue reading What I’ve Been Reading – December 2017
So, November was a bust as far as writing was concerned. On reflection I'm not surprised. Too much traveling, not enough butt-in-chair time despite several long trips by train, bus, car and airplane. I should have gotten on a boat, just to complete the set. Still, all that traveling was good for my knitting. I … Continue reading Tray-tables up. Socks down!
